Where did the time go?

[ #16601 ]

Today was a day of too much mucking around, and not enough real progress... a short summary...

  • Got a haircut. (Ok, this was important.)
  • Spent the afternoon playing with kphone, which is a software SIP (VoIP) phone. I eventually got it to work with Free World Dialup, which lets me make 800 number calls through my computer, or call TellMe, or any other FWD users. On the plus side, it's free. On the negative side, it still doesn't work right. I had lots of fun getting incoming sound to work, but outgoing sound is totally screwey. (Thanks esound.) Or maybe I should blame the crappy i810 audio chip in my box. I think I'm finally going to have to cave in and get a proper sound card, like a SB Live! or Audigy2. Maybe even one of the external USB2 devices, for simplicity.
  • Then, I upgraded my machine to the 2.6.0 kernel, because Arjan made it too easy. This time, it actually worked. None of the rough spots that plagued my last attempt. Well, except for the oddness related to the ATI FireGL graphics driver... it decided I no longer had the appropriate card in my machine.. but compiled fine and all that. It was a sign that I should switch to the DRI driver. The machine definitely feels a little smoother, but we'll see what happens. I burned two CDs and the CPU meter didn't even flicker. (tap-tap, is this on?)

And now, back to my 2003 todo list.
