Yep. Just saw Spider-Man 2 on this sweet little Daewoo DVD/VCR combo.
Going down for the count of 40 winks...
More when I get up, but:
Hey, that was a fun little flick.

In other news: I am still struggling with Gentoo Linux. I'm going to try installing Debian first, but has anyone reading this ever successfully put Gentoo Linux on a COMPAQ Presario (SR1010NX, Intel Celeron 2.8GHz, 256Mb RAM, 40Gb HD)? It seems more trouble that it was cut out to be. Also, LiveJournal's Components style is driving me batty. Does anybody know how to increase the number of links in the link list past 30? I clicked the button to add more links, but after the numbering got up to 300 (step 10), it stops. Can this be overridden? Is it a style variable? The whole thing is quite a mystery to me; and finally, GreatestJournal rounds out the list of computer issues. Does anyone know how to change the number of items in a "previous" list (LASTN_OPT_ITEMS) as an override rather than by customizing, i.e., modifying the style? The reason I have to do it as an override. Together, these three problems are giving me some headaches.

The link list limit is not specific to the Components style. Opal [my best default) is affected as well.

And I'm at that limit, too.

Wow, I hadn't noticed you had a paid account.
Have you looked into cloning Components and actually modding the style?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2005, BTW.
I hope you have a good one!

The learning curve for modding a clone of Opal is fairly significant. I don't even know the difficulty of inserting the customer icon for each entry in my main-view LJ.

in re: gentoo

give me a yell on AIM (I can use that from work) or meet me on irc and I can try and help you with the gentoo installation. while not having done an install on that hardware before and while not being the worlds largest proponent of gentoo, generally I seem to make things work. perhaps hardware fears me.

OK, I'll go ahead and do that right away, and thank you!
