Why the hell do people who write ray tracers, whether in Python, Haskell, or Erlang, always put all the files into the top level of the archive instead of creating a subdirectory?
Update: Oh look, there's a kill switch down there underneath the front of the computer. I must have hit in with my stomach. Why does my computer have two kill switches? Well, whatever, I'm writing this update on my X61 with working wireless.
Hi. I received my Thinkpad x61 recently, with the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG wireless chip.
Things were going (fairly) well, but today my kill switch got activated, probably when I was trying to toggle my wireless off and then on after hibernating. And now I can't turn off the kill switch (that is to say, I can't turn my wireless back on). I hit Function-F5 and nothing happens; the wireless light remains dark. Of course, the ipw3945 and iwl3945 drivers both just say "Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On" when they're installed at boot (or when I modprobe them manually). This happened in Gutsy and in Hardy, which I upgraded to to see if it would be fixed.
Any ideas? It almost looks like bug #121415, but not really: I'm even worse off than those people, since I can't enable my wireless chip in any way.
