Goodbye Mandrake

So, I finally got around to blasting Mandrake and re-installing RedHat. There might have been something wrong with our RedHat 7.1 because after I picked everything I wanted and went to install, it said it couldn't do anything suggesting that I didn't have enough disk space. Yeah, 6 Gigs isn't enough. Whatever.

So, I installed 7.0 back and tried to do an Upgrade. Same deal. Blargh. I gave up and decided that I can live with 7.0 for now.

Hee, so after great befuddlement when the Apache instructions made no sense, straight from Step 1, I scrubbed Apache to start over from scratch. Xinit laughed and told me to do that when I told him what happened =D

So now, I'm merrily ./configuring and ./make-ing along.

Yes, I'm listening to REALLY OLD music.

Yay!!! Apache and PHP are playing nice now!!! YEAH!

Okay, after dinner, I'll mess with MySQL and phpMyAdmin.

Yeah, I Rule

Well, I gave up on MySQL for the moment. So, in that sense, I suck... I remembered that there were port things that I don't quite understand, so I'm going to ask My Favorite Mike sometime this week to help me. Don't get me wrong, this doesn't mean that I actually _like_ Mike, really =) It's just that out of all the Mike's in the world, there's a subset of them that I know personally. And out of all the ones I know, he's my favorite one =)

But I rule because I've cleaned up my work desk considerably. I started stacking stuff on top of my monitor, but the monitor needs breathing room, so my stuff started getting quite hot =P

I have all these little booklets and day planners that are about 5x7" or so. I have scotch tape, liquidpaper, post-it notes, small glue-sticks, paper clips, gum and just little things like that all over. I don't have drawers. All we have for work desks are brown fold-up picnic tables. At one end is my monitor taking up about 1/3. The rest of the table is a breeding ground for crap. And it breeds fast.

I made some shelves out of empty CD-R boxes and my wedding shoe box. =) The CD-R boxes are holding various little things that grow on desks. My wedding shoe box has become a small bookshelf - it works because my wedding shoes were 3" heels and big heeled shoes always come in extra wide shoeboxes.

And it's a Scalable Solution - *ack* did I just say that? =) When we finish with more of the CD-R boxes, I can easily attach more empty boxes to the shelves I have now to expand it.

*teehee* I rule.
