I haven't posted for a few days, and this is going to be one of those rambly posts, which I don't usually attempt, since Bee and Tracy are both far better at it than me. Still, here goes.
Dead to the World
I've been zombified the last few days, not sleeping well. I don't know why, but last night I went to bed at about 9pm. Which meant that I woke up just after 5. So for once I watched a bit of "7-10", RIK's breakfast TV show whilst ironing some shirts. And got to work before 7am.
More Boring Technical Details
I've finally got my laptop working online with Ubuntu. I ended up getting a network card from "The Linux Emporium", and was online within 5 minutes of opening the parcel. £20 well spent! This is my first post from the Silver Surfer with Linux.
I had to set up all my web browser bookmarks, RSS links to all my favourite bloggers, and so on, but the most important thing was to choose a background. I've gone with the following from the "House of Dionysis" in Paphos, Cyprus.
So, what's so good about Ubuntu/Bad about Windows? At the end of the day, it's really just my personal taste. I have used Unix systems for the last 15 years, and I prefer them. And that's all I'll say, since I've bored you all enough about this.
I saw something really scary on the news this evening. They were throwing babies off the tower of a temple in India. The people below catch them in sheets. It's a centuries-old tradition that they claim has never resulted in any accidents, and which apparently gives the child good fortune and health. But it was an awfully tall tower, and the babies didn't seem very happy about it
That's All Folks!
And that's all I have. Oh, other than to say that I'm glad Tracy remained hurricane free, that Dan didn't shoot anyone, that Bee's plants are safe, and that Jean Knee's finally freed up some space in her Freezer of Horrors...
