Got Sick

Yep, it happened, sure enough. Not too severe, but enough to lay me in for a day for fear that it would get worse. This gave me an excuse to sit around all day at my desk studying Japanese and fixing my computer.

Two problems had been dogging my Gentoo installation recently: my Firefox (1.5.0.8) would freeze reliably on certain web pages, but not all. I eventually traced the problem to two old Flash plugins that weren't part of an emerge still on my system. I renamed them to something innocuous and the problem went away: /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/flashplayer.xpt and /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/libflashplayer.so

The other problem was that my copy of Gaim (1.5.0) would crash with a memory or pointer problem whenever I ran it. This I was able to solve by deleting the "block" lines from my ~/.gaim/blist.xml file.

Anyone else out there still using Linux or have you all moved to OS X?
