I purchased Pink's "Raise Your Glass" from Amazon, and discovered that I had downloaded an .amz file.
Oh, that's the file extension for files that are meant to be downloaded by the Amazon music downloader. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't have a 64-bit downloader for linux.
Help comes from Pymazon (http://code.google.com/p/pymazon/). I installed pymazon (using the
current mercurial branch), and "pymazon -c AmazonMP3-1295025407.amz" was enough to download the file. It even made it through the corporate firewall. Cool!

I use the juniper ssl vpn client to connect to my work's internal network. Although there is a linux client, it requires the Sun (Oracle) jre to work, which doesn't play well with selinux on Fedora 14. (It's not Fedora's fault, it's a bug in the plugin.)
# setsebool allow_execstack 1
It's not persistent, so it's not a permanent hole, but it would be best if I figured out what needed to be set for the various files involved. *Sigh*

The cpu in my home server is dying, so I decided to replace it with an atom motherboard. All was going well, until the screen went wonky, and the computer shut itself down. I rebooted, there was a large pop, followed by the delightful smell of ozone. Ah, well. I now get to experience the Intel warranty system. Wish me luck!
