Some kind of Christmas.
Well, I may not be able to do much of anything for a while, at least as far as DSL goes.
You see, the motherboard on my desktop has decided to go off and die on me.
At least, I hope it's the $70 mobo and not my nice $200 corsair ram.
Thanks to my D-bracket diagnostic panel, I know that it's failing to initialize the ram. So that means that either both sticks of ram are bad (I tested both of them one at a time) or the memory controller on the mobo is shot.
Please let it be the mobo.
...also need a nvidia card, because the Linux ATI drivers weren't worth the trouble to compile, and most definately aren't worth the trouble to pack up into a .dsl.
Sorry to anyone who was hoping they would work good. ATI drivers in Linux = steaming pile of crap.
I think I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep now.
