Finally got my kernel upgraded to 2.4.17. Whoohoo. CDROM access has been restored. Please feel free to move about the cabin.
I've been trying to learn CGI.pm in my spare time. You wouldn't think it would be that hard, but it's kickin my butt. I keep telling myself it's because I'm learning it in the evenings when I'm tired. Either way, it's starting to piss me off. I don't know if CGI Programming With Perl is poorly written, or if I'm just too impatient. I readily admit that I'm skipping around alot, but finding what I need seems very difficult. I'm somewhat disappointed in the content, and find myself using perldoc to locate what I really need. Maybe I just need a break from everything, but I really want to get this crap working.
