Xen upgrade

I changed the production box from FC5beta1 to FC5 on Sunday. Now I can use normal Xen kernels. Previously the beta1 Xen snapshot had some kind of binary incompatability so I was forced to use only Fedora binary or hand compiled kernels to run the guests.
It went very well except I didn't know that Fedora minimal install required discs 1 and 2 now so I had to drive home in the middle of the upgrade. Kind of a hassle.

What the heck is wrong with a single disc minimal install?

I tried out Roundcubemail - it's an newer webmail IMAP client written in PHP.

It's pretty damn slick for a beta.

I'm going to look into contributing Japanese strings - they aren't in there yet although the client has no issues dealing with Japanese content in UTF-8.

Well at least now I remember why I don't want to live in California.

Remember this night - there is no way you could deal with this state.
