So I'm installing Gentoo Linux on a box at the office. Thanks to the corporate firewalls, the emerge sync process is taking forever. Fargin proxies...

Why am I installing linux on a work box? First I get to do pretty much what I want in regards to computers at work. I try not to go overboard, but there I times I can't resist the lure of using the power my office supplies. Second, it's the future. Maybe not tomorrow, or next month, or even next year, but eventually Microsoft will fall. Let us not forget Ozymandias.

I want to be ahead of the curve on this one. And you can't get far ahead of the curve if you aren't willing to start walking. So I've started walking.
