Yep, still alive. Can’t evangelize Linux these days as my hard drive controller is on the fritz and I had two hard drive failures (in my Linux RAID array and in my LVM) as well. Windows freezes up every few hours when the SATA controller drops a drive. Sigh. Well, if I can nurse the poor machine until January I can put it out of my misery and build a new one. Only five months to go.
