Finally gettign the nwn installer that some guy wrote to work on phoebe. LD_ASSUME_KERNEL madness, since it uses wine and wine doesn’t play nice on phoebe. Now if only NVidia would release drivers.

but we’ll see how NWN plays before getting too into things. And NVidiia will have to release drivers sooner or later, or I’ll be doing crack-ass shit like LS_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 before I start X. That’ll suck, but work for games, I suppose.

Ray is going to be excita-boy today. i can feel it. I need to go to Wal*Mart for some button-downs, drywall anchors, and something else for the house…so I might as well do the groceries there too. I could do Food Lion, but I don’t want to make two runs, and the prices aren’t that different, even with the MVP crap.

Time to consider a shower, and prying Renee off of her game.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    MVP/VIC/etc. doesn’t really save you any more money than you would have before they started those programs. It’s just brand-scanning. I always use an alias when signing up for them. Food Lion has no damn business knowing how much coffee I buy or what brand of (insert personal thing here–condoms, whatever) I prefer. I know it sounds a little paranoid, but I can’t stand marketing ploys like that.

    Have a nice Sunday. I’d be into the beers already if I didn’t have a baby shower to attend in Goldsboro at 2. *groan*

    Argh. I can’t find it now, but a couple of weeks ago somebody showed me a link to the website of a guy’s tackling this in the exact opposite way — he’s putting the barcodes from his cards on the ‘net, so _everybody_ can use his card.

    That’s a great idea. I love hearing things like that.
