Dances With Slugs

So, after figuring out that the brain-dead Samba 2.2.7b-ja-1.0 that ships with the has all sorts of codepage issues, I re-flashed my to the latest beta firmware and installed Samba 3.0.14a-4, plus and a few other tidbits.

Obviously, things didn't go well (the fact that this is technically being posted on the 25th of May should give you a hint). First off, doesn't seem to like this Samba server. likes it just fine (and my can access other Samba 3.0 servers), but refuses to mount shares on the upgraded - which is still the case after wading through the copious amounts of Samba documentation and sniffing at traffic to try and figure out what's happening.

In the meantime, the 4.20 version of Unslung has at least a couple of extremely irritating bugs, which means that I will probably be reverting back to 3.18 during the weekend (unless I can fix them myself, which seems feasible).

As to the current crop of Tablet and Intel chip rumors, I honestly don't care one whit - either of them is a recurring feature in -related faerie tales, and doesn't even deserve linkage.

But this is completely different - an excellent lock-down reference that I'll be adding to my links.

Plus, seriously, how often do I get to link to the NSA?
