FreeBSD Challenge, Day 7

AKA Fight with Thunderbird and Lightning.

I broke down and installed a PBI for now. I could not get Lightning, the calendaring AddOn for Thunderbird to work using the native FreeBSD pkg or the linux-thunderbird one. The linux-thunderbird package actually refused to start for me. I need to go figure out how to generate a PR.

The other thing I am playing with is building a memstick image after patching the kernel using this post in the FreeBSD Forums. This is for the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 WiFi Driver which I have in all my laptops. The data wants to be free! from wires. Since it is chunking away, I will test tomorrow.
