This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.

Code:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <malloc.h>

int main(int argc,char** argv)
{
    char* str = malloc(1);
	
    if(argc >= 2)
    {
        int i;
        for(i = 1; i < argc; i++)
        {
            strcat(str," ");
            strcat(str,argv[i]);
        }
        
        int len = strlen(str);

Power usage: it just keeps going up and up and up...

...with each new kernel, it seems.

A while back, when I was still running with kernel 2.6.34/35 (and earlier) on my lappy, PowerTOP would show idle power usage anywhere from 10.x W to the occasional dip into the single-digits. Now on kernel 2.6.37, it never goes below 11 W, and sometimes hovers around 12...this annoys me, because it does take a hit on my lappy's battery life (what once was 4+ hours is now 3- ).

The backlight is always at the lowest level when...

My first "FOSS hack"

I was mildly annoyed at the fact that LTris only lets you choose between 50, 100, 200, and no limit (as many frames as the system can render at a time) as FPS options, so I took the liberty of changing:

Code:
switch ( config.fps ) {
    case 1: fps_delay = 20; break;
    case 2: fps_delay = 10; break;
    case 3: fps_delay = 5; break;
}
to:

Code:
switch ( config.fps ) {
    case 1: fps_delay = 17; break;

Tech burnout?

I've been feeling kinda depressed (more so than usual ) over the past few days...I've just recently gotten over a cold, and I may actually still be getting over it, so that could be part of the problem, but I also think it may have to do with the fact that I haven't really done much *new* WRT computers/Linux recently. I mean, I took my old "clunker" computer (the one with no discrete GPU and about 256 MiB of RAM) and loaded FreeBSD on it (I heard about how Arch's init scripts...

Why must I put up with this sh*t?

Yes, this is filed under "Existential Rants", but it's more of a general rant.

UFOs, aliens, "disclosure", gubmint conspiracies, etc...I can't stand it anymore!

My mother is utterly convinced that she's an "integral part" of some "spiritual mission" to "help the planet ascend"...yes...geniunely...no sh*t. On an almost daily basis I have to put up with her talking to friends over the phone about it all. It drives me...
