Hello and welcome to crasseux.com
This is just another waste of bandwidth on the information mass transit system (you think that'll ever replace superhighway, I don't know information MTS has sort of a ring to it...).

I finally managed to set up a usable GNU/Hurd system. Everything that could work is working and I am using it to do actual work. I'm typing this in emacs on the hurd.
Here is a brief list of what works:
- Boot from hard-disk
- Internet Connection
- ssh and telnet
- X windows
- gcc, emacs, gdb
- lynx, epic4(irc), exim(mail server)
- The Gimp (with everything from aalib to mpeg)
- And of course awesome ftpfs (not perfect, but pretty good)
- And the even more awesome VGA console which does UTF-8!
And here is a short list of stuff that doesn't:
- Sound Drivers not yet Provided
- pthreads... no mozilla...
Basically the hardest thing is getting the system set up. This is due to a lack of documentation. The system itself is very similar to Debian GNU/Linux. I find it is about as user friendly as any other GNU system. This applies only to the console. X is pretty stable, but applications are lacking.
Oh yeah! I almost forgot to tell you:
I'm running a Gopher Server on my hurd box. I'm going to put up some docs and stuff to help people out with the setup. If it seems slow that's because IE and Netscape (and to a lesser degree mozilla and konqueror) aren't really optimized for gopher. Use lynx and all should be fine.
P.S. The reason I use gopher is that videotron, my cable internet provider block port 80, standard HTTP port, and I don't want to run on a non-standard port.
The Gnew Project
I've just created a pathetic page listing free software for windows. I call it The Gnew Project
Hey I'm back!
Anyways as is my style site keeps coming and going anyways some new changes have taken place firstly one new problem is that I am limited to 150 megs of space. I can get more space, but to do so I have to have my web-host look over my site and make sure I don't have any warez, which I don't of course, but for some reason I don't think they'll believe me. So for now (until I get some sort of fake cover) I will have to keep the disk usage down. In that spirit I will be uploading some hard core abandonware. But don't worry it'll be here fast.
This is for two reasons. First I have a cable modem now and can upload stuff at a much faster rate (take that 28.8k modem). And secondly I actually want this site to be decent enough to be worth my huge "investment" of $9.95 a month. Anyways if you want any abandonware game whatsoever (actually any game under 10 megs) then feel free to email me at any of the following addresses: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (please use this last one as it is the one dedicated to this site, however if you don't get an answer try the other two).Prime number seekers welcome to THE L A R G E S T public team.

With this new site i'd like to do something half-decent,so I could use any suggestions you might have, this site is going to look very different. This is no longer just some crappy, page. It's the crappypage. In the weeks to come we will have decent music, maybe some decent game, and tons of links and cool stuff.
