Magicmirroring

Since I've acquired so much extra disk space I've been trying to rig up a partial Debian mirror (sparc and arm) on cleopatra.

For this purpose I've basically duplicated ming's installation (and mirror!). store (I haven't run fetch yet!) is really loading the machine though; using up about 70% of the available memory for about 30% of the memory it would like to fill.

cleopatra therefore needs more memory. She appears to have two 16MB SIMMs and two 4MB ones. Anyone vaguely local got better SIMMs than that I can exchange for small sums of money?

Stuff Meme!

I don't particularly like the "This is the problem with LJ" meme, so I'm going to recycle this one from last year instead, which I think does the job better...

I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal, if you feel like it.
