Joys of a new iBook part II

[ #8998 ]
Things seem to be coming together now. I've got GLTerm working which I vastly prefer over the built in Terminal app. I've got Vim replacing the default vi (I tried the carbon vim, but the fonts in GLTerm are nicer). I've build my own Perl 5.8 from source. I've got Chimera installed as my default browser. I've got JediKnight2 for irc (best free client I could find) and MS Messenger.

I'm now attempting to install MySQL. I feel quite proud of myself.
