Big fat warning, when hibernating using suspend2 it seems to corrupt some memory here and there. So don’t hibernate.

By accident, I discovered that my thinkpad has got an internal microphone. Now I can get rid of that stupid headset I have to use for skype.
(Yeah, I know macBook’s have got a camera too)
Today several schools (including miine) stopped early because of ‘heavy’ snowfall. 10cm of snow, that are about 4 inches.
This is a slightly adjusted 25.3 ebuild that will give you the 8.33.6 ati-drivers for Gentoo. Yes, it’s dirty. They aren’t in the main tree yet because they are considered broken, although it works just fine for me.
Extract them to an overlay.
Update, the 8.33.6 drivers are in the mainline tree now, so you should use those instead of mine.
I noticed that you are able to order hard-copy’s of Intel’s books on the IA-32, 64 and Itanium architecture. So I did.
Today, a few days later, I received them. They’re very informative thorough and well structured. And, in contrary to other professional literature, you are able to read it without crunching your brains on one jargon-filled sentence. Basically free, dense and easily read books and great references.
So, a big thank you to Intel for this nice free service.
By the way, Itanium seems to really rock. (256 registers, compiler branch prediction, 8-superscalar, etc)
Also, I’ve got no spare room anymore on my desk.
