I first tried to install Bugzilla on Mac OS X, and it took a little time, just as the docs said it would, but it wasn’t painful. A little time consuming, but not bad. The second install on another Mac OS X box was pretty simple, so by now I’m getting confident. That all changed after trying an install in Red Hat Linux 7.2. Sheesh, I’ve tried numerous times to get things working, and still no luck. I’ve had a few other issues with this particular server, so I’m hoping it’s just that. I’ll try an install on Brew and see what happens…

I can’t believe I’m going to attempt this again, but I’m going to try one more time to install Linux on the old PowerBase 180. Expect a full report soon…

Well, as you all know by now RC5-64 was cracked. It only took five years. And yes, I ran the client for five years, on many computers, many platforms, for many hours… I’m glad it’s over. I do wish the key had been found by a Mac ;) or at least an older, slower machine, and not a Pentium III. Anyway, I’ve started running SETI@Home on two machine, and I’m considering running Folding@Home as well… Distributed computing is still a very cool idea, and really, I think all of the other projects owe something to Distributed.net who really pioneered the idea and made it popular…

The number of Mozilla users doubles! I know, it’s still not a lot, but hey, we’re getting there…

Speaking of ‘advocacy’ here’s something you could do… See, some people use computers that they really don’t want to use, let’s say that you’re a diehard Mac supporter, but someone forces you to use a Windows machine. Sure, you’ve got Mozilla on it, but when the stats come up, that pesky ‘ol Windows is still way ahead of Mac OS X… Just install the uabar and set your user agent string to something like Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20020924. Or something like that, or just make up your own… You might be forced to use Windows, but you don’t have to endorse it…
