This rat/kangaroo/big-eared thing is evil…Found it on a BBC article

Weird thingy

Yeah…in other news apparently Hamas wants to create some kind of  woodstock-like thing, obviously different music, but they’ve confiscated a good amount of different drugs and now they’re burning them. They say they’re “destroying” them…Guess that’s one way to look at it.


Ubuntu Gutsy Beta or How I got PO’d at PCLinuxOS

October 4, 2007

Well…I tried PCLinuxOS. IT looked cool, it sounded uber sexy, it even smelled good when I pulled it outta the burner, but that smell was about the best I got. It made me take the time to configure wireless, then it didn’t work. It  was super slow, much slower than any other liveCD I’ve used, even when I’ve had beryl and all running, so now it’s out and I’ve got the Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy beta installed. The Gutsy beta is awesome. Wireless worked mostly outta the box, had to do a bit o stuff with the command line to get wireless to connect, but I eventually got it and installed Wicd. For those of you looking forward to a final release, you won’t be disappointed. It’s total sexiness. Everything just works, I’m doing a ton of stuff right now and I’ve still got RAM to spare. I’ll post more later, but so far it’s all good.

PCLinuxOS 2007

September 21, 2007

Cross your fingers, I’m about to try PCLinuxOS 2007 and with any luck, if my wireless works and stuff like that I may install. A full review will come later.


Bored…as usual

April 3, 2007

Yep, so I’m sitting here today, bored out of my mind trying to find something to do.  Who knew a time out of school could be more boring than being in school…well except for being in Mrs. Russel’s class, I don’t know what can bore me more than that.  Ah well, I’ve got “Before the Dawn” by Evanescence stuck in my head AGAIN! It’s ok though…I’ve been thinking about a lotta stuff today, looking back at things. I pretty much wish I could’ve re-done my 8th and 9th grade years, but those have passed and I must move on.  Well, anyone wanna talk, I’m bored as heck here…

My Views of Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” Beta

April 2, 2007

Thursday while staying at home, I decided I’d install the new Beta of Ubuntu Linux. After making sure that all my super-important crucial stuff was backed up, I put in the Live CD and went through the installer. The installer now features a way to migrate information from Windows or other Linux distributions over to Linux. I didn’t migrate anything over, but I did notice that it saw my Sabayon Linux install and had the option to move all info over from it. After the initial “oohs” and “ahs” of that part of the installer, I got to the actual installation, it only took about 10 minutes to update AND it downloaded the apt-get lists for me so I’d be ready to go after the reboot. Well, now comes the moment of truth, I click reboot, wait a few seconds, pull out the CD and give it about 30 seconds to reboot, then BAM! I see the new login screen…ah, beautiful and this is only the beginning.

Although only Beta, it is a very polished and nice release. I saw that my background was still the same as before(I have a full partition for home so no more losing docs when I reinstall. I then see the number of updates, about 85 if I remember correctly, which is no problem over my 3 mbit DSL line. I noticed there was a restricted drivers installer too, and I told it to install the drivers for my card, which is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200. No problems there, now I can play 3d stuff like Tuxkart and Planet Penguin Racer without issues, which was not possible in Edgy.

Being a person who LOVES music, I decided to play an MP3. As soon as I open it, the music player searches the repositories, finds the codec I need and tells me that it is proprietary, blah blah blah, so I hit install. Afterwards, MP3 playback went fine with no problems of any sort.

I’ll probably post more, later after I play more with Feisty, but I’m tired now, so I’ll leave it at this. UPGRADE NOW! FEISTY ROCKS!
