Aya wrote me a long letter, and I wrote a really long letter back
Tried to compile Apache again with SSL in addition, and
It failed… Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…………..

The 6.0 update is eating up my drives. And I install very
23th may 1999
Repaired my Raid after a failed upgrade of Redhat 5.2 to 6.0.
The new 0.90 raidtools don’t know the old raidpartitions,
and the bloody RPM deleted my old ckraid and raidrun
So it was a little bit tricky the get back my disks.
(But I’m sure that I’m not the only.)

Downloaded the whole RedHat 6.0 via Rsync.
Hey I love that tool. Kill FTP.

Had to work on this holy day, but thanks god nothing more
then a couple of server crashs and in the meantime found
some quiet minutes to study more japanese vocabulary.
Also found out how to fix my BTTV problem, which crashes
the whole machine after 10-25 minutes, and DESTROYS
my Soft-RAID !!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
(So all folks of you with the same problem try loading
bttv with TRITON1=1 and it should be fixed, hopefully,
because I’m 100 pc sure not to own a Triton board…)
Kernelpatch 2.2.8 arrived at home, but had no time yet to
patch and compile.
12th may 1999
Continued burning CD’s while playing the japanese version
of Bushido Blade II on my playstation. Hey I love that game,
it’s rather bloody but who cares….
Talked with Reyk on the phone and it looks like we agreed
a new date of installation for the FFM-Server, YES FFM again
We’re also thinking of using Soft-RAID with 9GB disks,
but I’m scared about power shortage problems.
Met with Tom and Gerd at O’Reillys Irish Pub, thought that
Reyk and Babsi would join, but they didn’t ? What’s up ?
11th may 1999
Big burning day, so many japanese CD’s )))
Blasted Muckis playstation when installing the mc, but I’m
not to be responsible, because someone already tried this
before, according to the soldering points.
10th may 1999
Free day, because of my coming emergency support week.
Did big big big big big big big shopping….expensive too,
just for food.
Worked in our garden, cleaning the roof and finished the day
in chinese restaurant across the street. Yammi.
9th may 1999
Called Aya this morning 3AM my time, 10AM japan time,
but she doesn’t seem to have much time for me. ((( Heiki ?
Demonstrated MD to my parents, and totally fascinated they
want this to be their xmas present this year… hmmm… ok.
Throw away that tape stuff, throw away old records.
Time for small smart mini discs.
8th may 1999
Converted lots of CD’s and MP3 songs to MiniDisc, especially
all the Japan songs, to get karaoke feeling for my morning
Called to Aya as every Saturday, but she said that she feels
bad and tired, and I should call her in the morning. Odaiji ni
7th may 1999
Made a complete backup of our MP3 server to ZIP media,
which is very hard work ! Don’t try this, it’s easier to
a cd-recorder directly instead.
Burned 3 new MP3-CD’s at home, so now the FPS collection
counts 15 MP3 CD’s all together. 250 hours of music ))))
6th may 1999
Reyk is ill, and can not join the Linux show.
The Microsoft presentation of Windows 2000 was pretty
impressive, but Linux bored so much because of
incompetence sf the speaker.
I think he has never seen Linux before.
I already had my doubts when I saw Powerpoint as
the presentation software. ))
But anyway, a nice start for the day.
And also a nice present of the company, a big analog
clock, made in china, which is 5 minutes two fast
within two hours. But maybe it changes when the
batteries are going low. ))
Ate Sushi to get back that japanese feeling
5th may 1999
Some problems with our 3.11 SFT-III server at work,
I wonder how they’ll get this machine into Y2K ?
Bought a MD-recorder today. Also something that
disturbed my inner peace since Japan.
Aya tried to convince me to buy MD in Japan, and
Albert also tried, but at that time I could resist.
OK, Aya you won !!! Kiss !
Expect some MD-exchange the next weeks
Wanted to buy a dbox which makes it possible to
watch digital-TV and to see more foreign(english)
TV-stations. But it’s so expensive without signing
a contract for the additional use of PAY-TV.
So now it’s easy. KAP will give me Sat-Stuff on
Friday I guess, so that I can test a little bit.
There’s also japanese (PAYTV) on Astra I heard.
I think about it, for you Aya, if you need ?
Anyway I do….
4th may 1999
Got invitation for Linux and Microsoft trade show from Tom
at his company for 6th may.
Bought a CD-recorder today, and I’m so happy to get back
my valuable space on harddisk.
Searched for video-stores that sell or are able of ordering
japanese videos. But bad luck for today.

Wrong alarm again. My coworker still is not father yet.

reactivate the bloody IDE interfaces on board.

Started the barbeque for this year in our garden.
It would have been something nice for you Aya ! ))

translated documents. Sounds nice. I love you !
