Time Event
Just wondering...
Has anyone played with that psychiatrist (I can't spell!) script on emacs? I was toying with it last night. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard...
Consider this directory (media):

patrick@boyle > ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 38 2003-12-13 00:40 h_work_media -> /mnt/boyle_hdd2/winshare/h_work_media/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 37 2003-12-13 00:40 home_movies -> /mnt/boyle_hdd2/winshare/home_movies/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 32 2004-03-16 22:38 movies -> /mnt/boyle_hdd3/winshare/movies/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 31 2003-12-13 00:40 music -> /mnt/boyle_hdd2/winshare/music/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 34 2003-12-13 00:40 pictures -> /mnt/boyle_hdd2/winshare/pictures/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 patrick users 36 2003-12-13 00:39 television -> /mnt/boyle_hdd2/winshare/television/

I just tried to move a directory filled with televisioin shows from the movie directory to the television directory using the following:

patrick@boyle > mv directory/ ../television/

While typing the command, I pressed the [tab] key to finish the directory 'television' since I'm lazy, and wanted to make sure I didn't fuck it up...

Somehow, it got fucked up because it is gone from movies, and was never moved to television.

What the Hell happened? Was it because I was 'navigating' through symbolic links?
Multiple Monitors!
With the parents gone for the week, I took over the basement and started having some fun. It started out simply enough - just running my TV and monitor off my GeForce card (using its TwinView function). Then I realized - I've got a couple spare PCI video cards hanging around .... *light bulb*

So I've managed to get a whole bunch of displays to go up all at the same time, which is cool. It's also kind of useless, because I've got my keyboard and mouse working multiple, different screens all at the same time. So for a decent multi-monitor setup, I know what I don't want to do - I don't wanna use Xinerama. An extended desktop isn't what I'm looking for.

So does anyone have any experience in starting and controlling multiple X sessions on one box, with one keyboard, one mouse and multiple monitors? I know that ctrl+alt+f7 gets me to my normal X session (session 0). I'd assume that using ctrl+alt+F8 would get me to a second X session. But would that steal away the mouse and keyboard from session 0? I wouldn't want to be replicating random input events across totally unrelated interfaces :P I've looked over the proper XFree86 documentation, but that just left me more confused than anything else.

I've looked around the X documentation, and haven't really seen anything pertaining to this, unless it's so simple it completely slipped my grasp. In any case, it's cool what you and a Mach64 can do! :P
wget an mp3 stream

Anyone ever used wget to download an mp3 stream? I see people talking about this on the web, but all I get is:

=> `1040'
Connecting to connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
19:10:41 ERROR -1: Malformed status line.

If I snoop the traffic, I can see the start of the stream - the initial text information, and then some binary data, but wget cops out. :(
