In my part of the world (Northern California), the slang use of Hmong is just as offensive as calling someone nigger, faggot, or wetback. Bad mojo. Language is a powerful tool. Use it wisely.

Then again, who cares what people in California thinks? Appearently any word is offensive to someone, so boo hoo?

Hey, Northern California provides food for the majority of the United States (and the majority of a few other countries, too). Maybe it's time to start caring. ;-) We also fund a significant portion of the world's medical and technological research. And if you're willing to risk a shark attack (I believe the world's largest concentration of white sharks is off the coast of Northern California, balanced by the world's largest concentraion of entertainment lawyers in Southern California), you can ski and surf in the same day and see the world's tallest trees--giant sequoia and coastal redwood--while you're at it.

... but in all seriousness, I don't think it's right to wander around intentionally hurting people's feelings. It's rather funny to me that the portion of American society that is so much against political correctness is the same portion that's supposed to be turning the other cheek. I doubt the Jesus of myth (as opposed to Jesus the man) would have approved of such hateful language.

And now I'm quite off topic. :-) Happy holidays.

I agree, and also, is your avatar referring to Linux on the Dreamcast? [Tux + Dreamcast Swirl] [Maybe i'm reading too much into it... Hehe]

If so, how can I get that working? I've always wanted too, the Dreamcast is my favourite console, but I've always wanted to get it running Linux too, my previous efforts have always been unsuccessful... oh and Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!  :-)

Yes, sir. Linux on Dreamcast. It's been a while since I've tinkered with it, but I think the SH Linux kernel has everything you need to run it on Dreamcast. There used to be quite a few how-to documents out there, but Dreamcast development has all but disappeared over the last few years. My own setup includes an early Dreamcast model (don't know the revision), a broadband adapter (BBA), a Sega-branded US keyboard, and a Sega-branded US mouse (you can also use a gamepad). You can do most everything you need to do with either the BBA or a serial cable ("coder's cable"). I have both and used the serial cable for debug output.

PM your setup (I think the Dreamcast model number might be relevant), and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction. I may even be able to whip an ISO image or at least some how-to instructions for you. The most difficult part (well, not really) is setting up a cross compiler. Dan Kegel's Crosstool scripts are mighty useful: http://www.kegel.com/crosstool/. Dan's also a very helpful guy, although I don't think he's using the SH stuff personally. We sorted out some Cygwin-related issues a few years ago. On Windows, Cygwin, coLinux, and Microsoft's Services for UNIX (or the bits that are now bundled with Windows) all make excellent development environments. I use Cygwin for tools and Visual Studio as my IDE.
