New computer worries: To give it something to do, I thought I'd try the GIMPS thing. When it tested, it gave warnings of impending doom. This is worrying as the PC is brand nwe and they talked me into buying extra fans. Of course, the 64bit GIMPS code might be dodgy. I did turn it off and let it cool down, but when I tried the test again, it spontaneously rebooted (when I had just started writing this - bastard). Hmm. If I can find something else to test it, then I may have to request that he people who sold it me sort out the meory (or whatever it is).
Talking of new PC, what Linux distro is most likely to install on here? Even disabling the SATA stuff in the BIOS, I get the same symptoms - i.e. loading devices, it loads something which fucks the CD driver. This is with all things IDE and traditional like.
So, the government plans to allow anyone to search on the web to see who's "authorised to work with children". Great. I can't see that being abused. The Register sums it up quite well.

LCC is being a bit crap at the moment. All the contractors who have been here long enough to know something about the system are leaving. We do, however, now have a working A3 colour printer. Smoetimes comes in handy when doing lots of UML and having to explain it to people who don't have Rose licenses.
Project Watch All Buffies is coming to a close. Got today's two episodes on the Sky+ and the final one is tomorrow. It's not been easy.
