Well, moving the token ring card to a different PCI slot doesn't seem to have helped anything. Sort of a long shot anyway, I guess. On the plus side, moving the sound card seems to have stopped those annoying pops and crackles.

I suppose my next move should be to read a ton of documentation on token ring stuff, and grab a more recent kernel and compile... *sigh*

Meanwhile, I can feel myself slipping back into Windows mode once again... I'm starting to expect the crashes again, unconsciously avoid the behaviors the OS punishes me for... I need to get back on Linux, and soon.

Probably won't be updating tomorrow. Looks like I'm going to a Green Day concert in Kansas City with a friend.

And speaking of music...

Ok, I don't even know where to start here. I'll write about it later.

This little piece demonstrates why Harry Knowles is a good writer, even if his grammar, syntax, and spelling suck rocks. He says what he means, and says it well, and that's what counts. IMHO.

The Ebert piece he links demonstrates why I have respect for Ebert.

It's been a while since I linked to a /. article, but I think this one is worth it. Some of the discussion is even worth a read. Plus, I gleaned a link to Artchive, which has a *lot* of cool images.
