Hey, kids, growltiger.net is back in action! That means you'll be able to see all of our silly vacation photos, pictures of aquamindy destroying various parts of our house, and be generally astounded at how boring the pages there look.
Reinstalling IDS under Gentoo was a dream come true compared to the nasty RPM dependency fights that I always had with Red Hat. A couple of fairly quick
emerge commands, and I was all set to unpack IDS. Nice!
Now that it's done compiling, I'm enjoying KDE 3.1.2, which has gotten quite pleasing to the eye lately. I'm still restoring bits and pieces of data from my backup, but I'm in less of a hurry for that stuff than I was to get the web server and photos back up again. I also threw on the VPN client for work, and Real VNC, both with no problems (though both from source, neither from an emerge). So far I've found that while Gentoo doesn't give you instant gratification, it seems to be worth the wait.
w00t! What fun.
