    You could setup distcc, to speed up merges, that's always fun. Have emerged frozen-bubble yet?

    Unmask enlightenment DR17 and it's libraries so that emerge will do direct live cvs builds (to use the latest code) and check it out

    you could try emulation! xmame pcsx mupen64 rocknes gens. those are suspose to be very nice. (try gxmame or something to use mame a little easier. you could get filesharing u with gift. you could try flightgear. you could try to install porthole for a graphical emerge system. you could install gimp and make pretty pictures. or you could test files and rport bugs. or you could even make emerge builds for programs you dont find in portage to expand the data base.

    I always like to find a way to mess my system up just so I have a reason to do something on it.. Being a Windows admin, I'm so used to things breaking I have to do it on purpose on Linux (and FreeBSD) just to give myself something to do
