1) The PC - timeout updating leds error is back in my 8 Dec 1994 kernel.
2) You know, "make" always seemed slow, especially when echoing multiple
lines out... I suppose my question is, would it be possible to speed up
make - especially in a general case where it would help everything, not
just the occasional makefile that echoes lots of stuff to the tty
3) Can anyone think of a reason not to set hostname during runtime or
multiuser state? I have a slip line that goes up and down quite a bit
(our service is not too great) and a dynamically allocated IP number.
The simplest sol'n seems to be to just reset the hostname to slip-xx-yy.zz.edu
every time slip goes back up. Any reason why I shouldn't do this?
