Not much luck getting PXE set back up; but I am learning how to use apt-get, and really liking it. Some things still won't install, due to package mismatches (the perl that came with DSL is too new for the apache package, for example), but I'm sure I'll learn the workarounds eventually. It's definitely lightyears ahead of rpm in terms of package dependency resolution, although I'm sure RedHat has come up with something better in the past few years. Maybe up2date is their answer to apt-get, I really don't know...

Anyway, I've got yp installed, but not yet configured, and some other stuff, like my dyndns script working again. I'm really thinking I should wait for my new disk to arrive before I put too much into this, but this is what I've got to work with at the moment so I might as well go ahead with it...

The general malaise I've felt over the past few days seems to be abating, but for a while there it didn't look good. I went upstairs to crash for a while yesterday afternoon, and felt that the life force was slipping out of my body, and didn't even care. That last is pretty scary. But I woke up anyway, so you'll have to put up with my blather for a little while longer, I guess...
