Micron laptop of doom

So I borrowed a Micro Laptop from , and it’s being a BITCH. I think it just hates me.

– CMOS is locked and no-one knows the password
– The CD-ROM drive is literally falling apart.
– Which is probably why it only boots from floppy
– FreeBSD doesn’t see the network adapter or the CDRom
– Debian doesn’t see the PCMCIA Bus (probably the same issue with FreeBSD)

So I’m fighting with it. And I will prevail. And before Z says anything, I’m damn glad to have it. I just gotta get it to WORK. *grin*

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.

    Is it German, Austrian, Belgian, or American?

    And I found my Columbian Import Chocolate covered coffee beans when I was unpacking one of my boxed from RHAT. Now I can be wired at home, too!

  9. alchemist says:

    OK, both of you step back, take a deep breath, count to 10, and then hug each other and say sorry.


    OK, that’s not gonna happen.

    My bad for not mentioning the crucial part about it being third hand used, so nobody who might know remembers. Chill out both of ya.
