Several hours of coding ---> Break time!
Break time ---> Tea + web zipping.
Web exploration ---> NERD EXPLORATION!

Laptop upgrade impending, so I haven't upped from linux Fedora Core 6 to the new Fedora 7.
Might not go with Fedora 7 on the new machine, after all.

News: Fedora 7 DOES work with the AMD Turion 64 X2 processor.
...But so does a new Slackware-based distro called slamd64.
...And the highly-customizable Enlightenmen 17 window manager/ desktop environment (also pretty speedy, they say) does work for Slackware, and some people are working on fixing a slight bug to get it to work for slamd64.

ALSO: Mathematica exists for Linux now. Just so you know.

Being several years old, my laptop is, while still functional, a bit fidgety.

Namely, it appears to have less harddrive capacity than my sister's iPod.
Speed wise, it is not too difficult to get the processor to 85% busy or higher.

...Particularly when running Eclipse, a programming environment thing I'm required to use for my job this summer.

The parents are acquiring a newer laptop, and I'll be trading with my mother, who doesn't do so much compiling of large code heaps.
