Final year project frustration. One of the other members of the group is upset because a Makefile, now that it has been Automaked, now takes 5 seconds longer to compile for his favourite target. Checkout the thread for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.

The x21 got picked up for repair yesterday. All my hardware keeps breaking. On the hardware upside, the Cisco Catalyst 1900 is now in the server room, and I can now think again in my study. This is cool, because it now means that my test bench has a Cisco Catalyst 1900 (switch), and a Lattishub 2803 (hub) for when I want to play. You never know when you might need an extra 40 ports in the study temporarily…

I also dug up some documentation on the Catalyst 1900 in case I need it: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/28201900/1928v8x/.
