Were having network problems here at work, and it looks to me that we've been having trouble since Thursday. Sounds like one of the switches may have been overheating, as two of my coworkers just carried a big fan out the door..
Anyway, I spent way too much time overnight playing with my new computer. I didn't really get to sleep until 5:00 AM, mostly because I was watching movies ;-) I highly recommend the VideoLan client for that task, as it provided the smoothest playback for me. Try the CVS version too, as it seems to have somewhat better audio support.
I played around with ML-View, an improvement on dxpc. Unfortunately, it won't compile with GCC 2.96, but it worked great with 2.95.3 (which I was happy to discover could be compiled really quickly on my system). It seems to be a pretty good program, though the syntax is pretty ugly. I think it would even be a good thing to use on a LAN, because it can cache a lot of things, rather than dealing with the latency involved in sending data back and forth across the network.Posted by mike at June 4, 2001 12:08 PM | Old Advogato Diary | TrackBack
