Oh Linux, how I miss thee

in me

I’ve decided to reinstall Gentoo Linux. It basically came down to a choice between a new MMOG, and reacquainting myself with Linux, and it’s easier to go AFK from a compilation, than from a quest party.

Better yet, I actually have a practical reason for it – I want to set up a network file server once we have a place of our own, and I’d like to brush up on Shorewall, Image Magick and other and funner utilities.

It’ll be Gentoo again, I guess, as Ubuntu invariably Breaks Things when I install it.

Woe is me.

    Ah good old Gentoo! My very first distribution of linux. And that was about 4 years ago. It was like being thrown in the deep end of a pool when learning to swim. But i have to say it worked out for the better.

    I’ve moved away from it now as i recently purchased an iMac.
