Today I synced up with the perl repository, this is the first time since 2004/12/25 I've done that. That was just before the fatal move to Shenfield that left me non functioning for a year.

I also got ccache and distcc working, so now the mac mini helps with the compiles. Ordered another 2 GB of RAM for the mini so it should be able to run some vmware images and help me compile well.

You know what would be cool? Some sort of distcc@Home, which would allow programmers to use random others' extra cycles to help them compile.

Even if it's really bad, there are still cases where it could help.

In particular, Gentoo definitely ought to come with this pre-installed.
