Added a Terabyte of Storage

Yes, there seems to be no end to my storage needs. First there was a 160GB drive. Then a second 160GB drive. Then I had to add a 300GB external drive. And finally even that filled up. So I just picked up a pair of 500GB drives and swapped them in for the 160s. So Gabrielle, my main desktop (Mac G5), now has 1.3 Terabytes of disk space. Hopefully that will last a little while.

Meanwhile, the two 160GB drives had nowhere to live, so I bought a few cheap parts and built myself a new Linux desktop named Joxer. I had a tough time deciding how to configure him, but I finally settled on Kubuntu 7.04 for the OS. I'm really liking the whole Ubuntu family of products. It's like the best of Debian, wrapped up and delivered fresh to your door every six months!
