Toxifying my system with chocolate candy and peanuts again. A minor binge, but depressing that I can't keep this under control. My whole system "feels" acidic and bloated again. Bummer.

I enabled the soft watchdog in my pxeboot kernel, but found out it was useless when I accidentally exited from the bash shell that was my "init" process. For that I had to specify "panic=5" in the options in pxelinux.cfg/default. Now it reboots in 5 seconds.

I like this testing of new systems via the PXE boot mechanism. It only takes 22 seconds from ctrl-alt-del to a new command prompt!
