mph..

Tired.. headachy.. needing to find five minutes of script for dramatic thing for Speech class.. am supposed to rehearse with girl from Speech class tomorrow, and neither of us has anything.. help?

Also, am supposed to remind people, like aloyen, to check out http://www.nanowrimo.org for National Novel Writing Month. October is preparation month, November 1 begins writing, and the goal is to have 50,000 or more words of a novel written by midnight of November 30/December 1. If you don't have 50,000, upload anyway, 'cause their word counter might show more words than you've counted. Important thing, of course.. to have fun. (^*^)

Mya, am using Feather Linux.. kinda fun. Nice to not have to worry about installing the operating system, ee.. so with hard drive formated to NTFS, that means Linux doesn't have writing privelages and such.. which is fine. This means everything's in RAM, though, so upgrading RAM would help for the serious multitasking, ya? (Have been wanting to do this anyway).

Question, though.. how 'xactly to convince Feather to detect HD? Would like to tell it to play music, but no such luck so far.. haven't dug much, though. Gonna poke my nose around.

What happens when you try "mount /dev/hda "?

Wait... come to think of it, you don't have a mount directory. Hrm. This could be an issue.

Tried "mount /dev/hda file:/mnt/hdc1" and it seems to've mounted some files in that directory, with a "dell" directory in that.. but nothing else. Not sure what these files are, 'xactly, but not the normal list would expect to find in "c:\"; no "documents and settings," etc.

Trying "mount /dev/hda file:/mnt/hdc2" and "mount /dev/hda file:/mnt/hd" doesn't appear to do anything, mya.

I won't be home for another week. Remind me then and I'll play aroudn with it a bit - I can always try to get Knoppix to read the HD on Nakago.

Feather is a cut-down Knoppix. It should be able to mount the hard drive without a problem. I can look the next time I'm there as well.

You should be able to issue a command like mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs -o ro /mnt, which would mount your laptop's hard drive under the /mnt directory in Feather in read-only mode.

Oo.. thank you. Am not sure if that worked, or if I just found the right place to access it.. but is working now. (^*^)

NaNo!

Wish you could come back for the Meetups, but I know that's not going to happen.

Is a bit of a drive.. ee, but maybe a post-nano sometime in December? Last day of school is December 15.. and am hoping to get to Florida for friend's graduation on December 17 (pretty sure that's the day). After that, am available through like January 20 or something.. (^*^);
