I have the day off as Patty won a radio contest (MIX 107.3 WRQX) for a tour of the NSO Decorator Showhouse.

You and a friend can win a special MIX 107.3 VIP tour of Houghton Mansion, on Embassy Row at the 30TH annual NSO Decorator Showhouse October 1ST - 31ST! You'll see the work of 25 of the area's top designers. Join Stacey Williams and Chilli Amar from the Jack Diamond Morning Show on Thursday October 3RD for a special VIP tour of the mansion followed by a gourmet lunch at Neyla, a Mediterranean Grill in Georgetown with transportation provided by Magnolia Coach Limousine and Sedan Service.

Rasputin: Red Hat 8.0 installed perfectly - the 'everything' install took 35 min and 4.6gb. This machine is nice! 1200 Celeron, 128mb ram, and dual 80gb drives! I still couldn't play TuxRacer or Maelstrom. FAR too slow. Framerates in the single digits. I think the video card is the culprit, but c'est la vie. I'll be exploring this new Linux install for a while - haven't had a chance to just tinker with it before.
