Yah, I had to create a new id tagging a "2" on the end because when I changed the email address on the original it inactivated the account and the old email address no longer exists. (Any admin get my PM yet?)
I found one US site offering the KBP for $253 ! I'm not ready to pay that yet! I think I've lined up a cheap used LSP whose HDD died, so if that works I'll try hacking that first. As soon as I have a nice stable production ready system I'll transfer all the data from my original faithful Kuro and be ready to use it as a guinea-pig again. I have a read-only console on it (soldering accident on the write trace), so that should help. It's a flash virgin and hasn't even ever run anything other than the stock 2.4 kernel.
I really, really want to store my data in ZFS (go read up on why, you'll want to too!), however I'm not going to be installing Solaris on a small ARM or PPC box, at least not for a while!
So my favorite meta-distro and FUSE it will have to be.
HEY! IT'S PAST "MID OCTOBER" WHERE'S THE FREAKIN' NEXT REVOGEAR BATCH? Not that I'm impatient or demanding or anything...
