Linux Rebuild

Well in my poll, I see that the ladies suggested rebuilding while the men suggested dizting around with the bad hard drive. The ladies have it. :)

With the ever so generous help of opalcat's awesome husband, I installed the latest version of Red Hat Linux using a boot disk that lets the installer download the source files via http. I got that done last night, and with a little more help from him today I got the web server and samba server running. Yippee!

I checked the warranty status of the drive that died, and found that it expired last Sept. So I decided to take it apart and have a look inside. I shot some photos. :)

Waterfall Video

Now that my server is back up, here's a link to the new video of me playing Jon Schmidt's "Waterfall".

5.5MB Windows Media Video

Yes it's big, but it's over 3 minutes long so it's actually very well compressed. Sorry to those who can't play .WMV files but any other format would've been 15MB or more.

It should be noted that the performance has not been edited at all, so you're seeing me complete with mistakes. :) But there weren't many and I was happy with it.

Also the audio doesn't pick up the dynamics very well - as far as the mic could tell, everything was loud. But trust me, there are dynamics in there that make it sound so much better.
