w00t! I am in my room, at the other end of the house, on the wireless network. The connection is a little flaky this far away, but it actually seems to be holding out OK. There are just a couple dead spots here and there.

I just wish my display would go darker...it's really bright right now, which is annoying, and it's eating batteries. Oh, and my speakers are making a very, very faint squawking sound, which I suspect is the fault of the wireless card. Ah, well, these are little things...on the whole, I'm happy. Now, if linux would just get decent ACPI support for suspending...

My hard disk seems to want to blip every few seconds or so, which is annoying, because it has to power on and power off repeatedly...sucks more battery. I turned off ReiserFS journalling, but that doesn't seem to have made any difference. Oh well...I'll figure something out...

Sheesh, it's almost 3 AM. Maybe I'd better get to bed. Jackie's supposed to be out here at some point tomorrow.

Oh, and I promise to do these updates somewhat more frequently...I haven't been around much because of Christmas and all that.

'Night all.

Tuning your filesystem

at least with ext3 there is a way to set the journalling timeout to longer, so that if nothing is happening it doesn't try to access the disk every 15 seconds or so to check the journal, I assume reiserFS has something similar.

Re: Tuning your filesystem

I actually just passed the 'nolog' option when mounting...turns off journalling completely. Although, it doesn't seem to have made that much difference.

Re: Tuning your filesystem

Uhm, turning off journalling defeats the purpose of having a journalled filesystem. Especially on a laptop where you turn-on / turn-off alot, sometimes after running out of batteries etc...

Re: Tuning your filesystem

Oh, I know...but I was too lazy to figure out how to do it correctly, and just lengthen the time between commits. :)

Turning it off doesn't seem to have made much of a difference anyway, so I think I'll probably just turn it back on again.
