I'm still working on getting things back up to speed on the new drive. I haven't gotten anywhere with data recovery, but it is nice to have up-to-date versions of all the libs.

Last night I got Evolution syncing with my phone via MultiSync (which I've mentioned before). In Evolution I can manage todos, calendar info, and my contacts, and then sync them all to the phone via Bluetooth. It's very slick stuff.

Right now I'm working on getting my soundcard working under ALSA. I've used the OpenSound drivers forever, but now that ALSA's the sound standard in 2.6 it's time to make the change.
