So I rescind my hold on the new Wacom Intuos Pro. With driver 6.3.31-4 it's finally stable between suspends. Happily, the driver advertises itself as more stable, and for me at least, it finally is. I don't like having yet another Lithium battery around the house. But the tablet is a sweet ride otherwise.
My server gave me a scare. The primary drive showed up empty today. The backup looked fine, fortunately, but the primary drive was empty... however, this is Linux... A funny thing about Unix's, is that you mount extra drives onto existing directories. The mounted file system then sort of extends the main file system. It turned out that my drive failed to mount (because of a loose cable) and so the original -empty- directory is sitting there. The "blkid" command, among others, show's you who's out there and I noticed one of my drives was missing. Might be time to replace those old cables. Or stop monkeying around in the case. ^_^;;
Finally dumped Sprint. They upped the price of my bill and given the miserable phone experience I decided to bail:
1) Their voice mail serves up ads. No way around this (short of modding the phone)
2) Their network is horrible. Never had more than 3 of 5 bars anywhere.
3) WIFI calling was a whiny child wanting my address for 911 whenever my access point config changed.
4) Their network is slow.
Turned out that T-mobile had a good deal for me and when I switched, it blew my sox off! All of the above magically disappeared! Even nicer, I get HD voice quality now. Too bad my first phone experience was with Sprint. I always thought cell phones where so clunky!
So lot's of changes this Summer. But the seem all for the best. Sometimes you gotta take a little pain to get a little gain.
