        Well, gents [*],

        Somehow my installed world got partially deleted and to save myself
        further grief, I rebuilt everything.  *Then* rebuilt mutt.  portmaster 
        gets stuck on the java stuff because we still hasta fetch it ourselves.
        I thought Sun was going to fix that.  In any case, my diablo-jdk16
        timezone file is MIA, so I'm wedged  as far as further upgrading goes.

        Been thinking over what someone said recently about restricting or
        dropping further ports.  BSD is the best opensource system around.  But
        keeping everything current is painful.  Does anybody know if PCBSD is as
        pushbutton as, say, Ubuntu is?  I'll always use FreeBSD on my DNS,
        apache22, and mail server side.  Zero crashes in 7 years.  But if I want
        to play music or watch a DVD--or do serious web video stuff--I use 
        I'd like to say kilowatts by having one "tao" that can handle everything
        from hacking code to playing a movie.

        There is the talent here to fix the fixable ...  at the same time, we've
        all got real lives, jobs, school, families, etc.  And a limited 
        base.   ...That's my dime's worth.


        [*] to spare raging replies, no, i am not a sexist/chauvinist.  Only
            30 years ago about a third of my computer class was female.  Not to
            mention some drop-dead blondes in my ckt theory class... .
            I mean, some serious female EE talent there! :-)  ...  Now?? dunno.
