Me running a bunch of apps in ion. May 31, 2006

Well, here’s a boring screenshot
of me checking up on webcomics
in ion, using dillo, on my 200mhz laptop.
webcomics
^^ oh, and that’s Scott Kurtz’s
PVP comic on the screen there…
hopefully I’m not violating any laws
here.
Funny story…
I just recently decided to update my
debian testing kernel, and borked my
system.
So, thought I… “I’ll just switch to breezy,
everyone’s doing it!”
Well, I did.
And the fonts were horrible, my
trackpads buttons were reversed,
the console wasn’t fullscreen,
and there were only old, outdated
packages. (such as bitlbee without ssl, for some reason.)
So, thought I _again_… (gotta stop that) “I’ll just add the testing repos!”
Well, obviously _that_ didn’t work
out correctly… so, I installed elive…
Removed enlightenment and firefox,
grabbed dillo and weechat and other
goodies…
Now I have a working system just
like my old debian one… only better,
because the e17 and morphix repos
are pre-merged!

Moved! (no, the other type of moved) May 11, 2006

Well, not only have I moved my blog to here, I've moved to a new house!

It's a multi family, but we live on both floors.

In some spots the electricity does not work, but the walls are not made of cardboard, and the floors don't collapse and send you crashing into the basement when you walk on them!

We haven't got a stove or a fridge yet, so we've been eating junk (take out etc) and drinking non-fat dry milk and teas.

I now have my own room, which is nice, and it's right on the border of wifi (provided by our friendly neighborhood "assisted living center".

I'll be posting more often now that my laptop is set up with skipstone (although all the text lags… I wonder if this'd work in links or dillo?)

So… right when you don't expect it… expect it!
