[Gentoo] Updating to 6.8.99.5

So, I’m working on an update to xorg-x11-6.8.99.5 tonight. I finally added a patch to fix the USE="dmx doc" build failure. That’ll be the only change from the Gentoo perspective.

I’m also enjoying another of Victory’s Storm King stouts. This is one of the best beers I’ve had since moving to Oregon — so what if I had it back in Virginia too? I was overjoyed to find it in the store here.

I got stuck grading about 3x more of the cell&molec exams than I planned, which did a great job of ruining my afternoon and night. Back to your regularly scheduled program tomorrow.

Yes you do, Linux. Now just act on that ability.

Connections are everything

It’s good to know that some VMWare people read my blog. =) I’m in touch with them now, and with luck I’ll be able to resolve this soon. Until then, I’ll probably have to downgrade to v4 to create VM’s, then re-upgrade.

I’m not feeling particular rich in money right now, but there are certainly other kinds of rich. Like the richness of the beer in my stomach. =)

I recommend Victory’s Storm King to anyone who enjoys a good stout.
