Note to self (and to Google): a Palm Tungsten E2 crash at the end of the hotsync process with the error PIMSDataMgr.c, Line:135, checkRecordChunk means chunk is null... can be fixed by doing pilot-xfer --Purge -b somedir to remove the deleted records.

Linux kernel, arch/parisc/kernel/setup.c around line 267:

panic ("No CPUs found.  System halted.\n");

Hmm... there's a flaw there...

Or, to put it another way, Daddy has just managed to make a working copy of the Michael Rosen CD which had some big scratches on it and wouldn't play. The children will hopefully be very grateful in the morning...

(Seen in uk.rec.sheds, of all places...)

  1. Picture yourself near a stream.
  2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.
  3. No one but you knows your secret place.
  4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place called "the World".
  5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
  6. The water is crystal clear.
  7. You can easily make out the face of the person you're holding underwater.
  8. See, you're smiling already.
