A nice song from Seldon Plan's album "The Collective Now". Enjoy!
FYI, if you're not using xdm/kdm/gdm but are instead starting the X11 server manually with
startx (which is what I usually do) you might have experienced brokenness in Debian unstable recently:
Fatal server error: Unrecognized option: /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc

Hope that saves some people out there lengthy investigations and hassle.
From the VA-Moments of iBuzz Pleasure 2 album, here's "Never stop the carnaval", a very nice disco-club-ish track!
Quick newsworthy item related to coreboot, which I wanted to mention a lot earlier, but then forgot about it: Silicon Mechanics is shipping their Rackform nServ A236 with coreboot pre-installed if so desired by the customer.
From the coreboot News page:
Chris Watson at Silicon Mechanics says: "We will commit to offering coreboot preinstallation on the Rackform nServ A236 with a specific set of hardware and software. In the future, we may expand the program to additional platforms based on customer interest."
The A236 is a nice 1U server with 4 drive bays and a dual Opteron board (Supermicro H8DMR), which is supported in coreboot v2.
Nice to see more and more vendors shipping their products with coreboot pre-installed...
