On Saturday Randomness

At long last, it’s snowing. I looks nice, from out the office window.

I’ve installed new fonts. I even got them to work on my Ubuntu install.

Yes, I installed Ubuntu a few weeks ago, on a slave hard drive I wasn’t doing anything with.

I’m not doing anything with Ubuntu, except to play Sudoku. Seems like overkill, doesn’t it? To turn my computer into a dual-boot system so I can Sudoku on the other operating system?

Well, I do use Open Office in Ubuntu. Not really a selling point, is that.

I wrapped some Christmas presents.

I need to write up my Christmas cards.

Oh, look! The holly tree is catching the snow on its leaves! Nothing says December like a holly tree’s green leaves, the red berries, and snow.

I finally watched Futurama‘s The Beast with a Billion Backs. Yes, I’m behind. Maybe in a few months I’ll get around to watching Bender’s Game. :)

I have more writing to pound out this evening. My keyboard is like my guitar, only instead of music it makes words. Pound, pound, pound, pound it like an axe.

I have to go to the mall. Joy.

  1. I tried Kubuntu on a notebook. Drove me nuts. Getting the wireless to work was a hassle and I was amazed at how far Linux had come in the 9 years since I messed around with it… and how far it still had to go in desktop usability. Never again- I just don’t have the time or patience anymore.

  2. I’m trying to figure out the appeal, but for right now…

    I’d have to buy a new modem if I wanted to go online. US Robotics internal modems aren’t liked by Linux.

    Sometimes, Ubuntu does weird things to my monitor. Sometimes it’s fine.

    Those are the two major issues I have with it at present.

    Maybe if I used it exclusively, I’d like it more and I’d have more reason to figure out how to make it work. (Except, not being able to go online with it is a real negative.)

    I agree with the idea that Linux could be better in the desktop usability department. It can be the most robust operating system in the world, but it’s not ready for prime time.
