Approaching CPU fan management in OpenBSD ... and a bug enters Debian Lenny

I'm starting with the sensorsd.conf and sensorsd man pages. And this page from has some tips on what /etc/sensorsd.conf does, how to start the sensorsd daemon. I'm not holding my breath, but if I could run OpenBSD (or FreeBSD or NetBSD) on my Gateway Solo 1450 laptop with the fan properly managed, I'd love to be dual-booting it with Debian. Debian Lenny note: While many bugs seemingly got fixed in the Epiphany Web browser in Lenny, one new bug unfortunately has crept in.

Astounded in Arahuay

I recently returned from a grueling three-week stay in Peru, where I worked with the serious Ministry of Education team entrusted with the country’s 260-thousand laptop OLPC implementation. I wanted to know what the laptops had done for the kids. I told them I’m not a reporter, I don’t answer to the Ministry, and — an important disclaimer for an overpoliticized country like Peru — I don’t pander to bullshit politics. I wanted to hear if they thought the laptops were helping. After looking at me blankly for a good half-minute, Mr. Navarro shot back with “evidentemente”, “obviously”, and palpably left off “you idiot” from the end of the sentence. I appreciated the small courtesy and asked a more specific question: what changed in the 8 months since the laptops arrived?

Amazon's Linux answer to iTunes is a winner

Are you a Linux user suffering from iTunes store envy? If so, Amazon has a deal for you. While any good Linux media player, like my own personal favorite Banshee, will let you rip music from CDs, there hasn't been a good source to buy music online for Linux players ... until now.
