Swiss Army disk

Normally I spend the first day of the weekend blogging most of the
following week. Today is an exception, for obvious reasons. I have
gifts to wrap, dishes to wash, animals to feed. Somehow I have to
figure out how to sneak my son's and his girlfriend's presents into the
house (past them). HBO is running Carnivale again this coming week so I
have to find time to set up the record schedule. You get the idea.

In any case, blogging
this week may be a little erratic. Here's today's...

IBM has an
article about <a href="http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-
clustknop.html?ca=dgr-lnxw06ClusterKnop">building clusters with custom
Knoppix CD's. Knoppix seems to be one of those tools that finds its
way into everything. Since our appliances will soon have their own IPv6
addresses, what's next? Washing Machine Knoppix? Fish Tank Knoppix?
Lawn Mower Knoppix?

Don't laugh! Mix in a little wireless or
broadband-over-power-line and it's not that much of a stretch.
