Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 kids, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, no longer dreadlocked and 33 years old

I'm also head of Vienna.pm [pm.org], maintainer of the CPANTS [perl.org] project, member of the TPF Grants Commitee [perlfoundation.org] and the YAPC Europe Foundation [yapceurope.org].

I've got stuff on CPAN [cpan.org], held various talks [domm.plix.at] and organised YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna [yapceurope.org].

(linux && usb)--

[ #31770 ]

Grr, I just waisted 1.5 hours to get simple automounting of USB storage devices on linux (gentoo) working. I just want to plug some USB-thingy into my laptop and have it mounted somewhere reasonable.

Currently, after plugging in something, it gets mounted to /media/some_cryptic_thing_like_sdb1.
Oh, and if I plug in various things (mp3 player, camera, USB stick), they get different names every time. Annoying!

I'm using ivman, which seems to be the best option (beside switching to a Win-like thing like Gnome, which I want to avoid).

But on the plus side, this issue is the only thing left that annoyes me on linux, now that I have wireless and hibernate (to ram and disk) working.
