defo .. cron job ... EXTRAVERSION is damn handy.... I'm very good a
knackering my own moduyles .. esp when hopping between in-kernel PCMCIA
and ex-kernel PCMCIA supprt ... (in-kernel needs a lot of work but it's
nice to keep an eye on it ..
you also get kernel-2.4.2-ac5-da1 ... what fun to have a kernel named
after yourself :-)
