this week so my posts will be slim. Friday we got about 2.5 inches of rain.
Went to the house and started to notice that a few lights were out and I wasn’t
hearing the sump pump. Went to the breaker box and didn’t see one tripped. I
turned on/off every breaker until everything started to work. I checked out
her basement and it was flooded…..damn flooded. Went up and it was cold. As
I went to sleep it kept getting colder and colder. Woke up a few times to make
sure that the breaker wasn’t tripped. Woke up f-ing freezing. Called the person
whom I’m housesitting for, she’s in NOLA, and let her know the situation. Got
the name and # of her handy man and called him. He sent someone over…..a few
hours later. I stayed around the house all day. Finally I had to leave, it was
way too cold. Went home and cooked, got a phone call from the furnace man and
the water shorted out a board. He replaced it and I came back to a toasty house.
I’m happy, the cat is happy and my landlord for the week is happy. I had a post
for Thursday last week, but I forgot to update. It’s online now.
I’ve been playing
around with my PseudoMac, a PowerComputing PowerWave 604/120 w/ 64mb of ram.
I did have a beta of SuSE on it, but apparently I put YellowDog back on at some
point. Loaded BootX and the YellowDog login appeared and it took me to a KDE
window. I was planning on loading NetBSD Multi Boot edition, but that will go
on my new laptop. I will download LinuxPPC to see if I like that better than
YD. I’m going to soup up the memory to 128mb and if I decide to say to hell
with it, it will be on eBay by February. I’m
really holding out on using this machine until I get online with my cable modem.
It would be a great box to learn linux with.
