I put Ubuntu Feisty on our less-new Inspiron 600m this past weekend, and got Beryl running on it a couple nights ago, and then tweaked Beryl last night until I liked it. Wireless setup was way easier with Feisty and this system than it was on the last Inspiron (which had a Broadcom card).
I’m still getting some weird with losing network configurations and connections when the machine wakes up from sleep, but all in all it was the kindest Linux install ever.Once I get MTASC going in Eclipse, I’ll start the practice experiment of seeing how far one can go with Flash development without hopping onto a Windows box and the IDE.
Last night we walked over to the largeness that is the new Mars. It is way more shiny than the old Mars and had lots of shiny people. It was all too much… we’ll try again in a few weeks once it gets some patina. We then walked past a very crowded Guero’s and wondered once again what the big deal is, although the band in the yard was very nice.
Finally we ended up at the Woodland, which was not crowded at all, but should always be, because it is delicious. O tempore, o mores! If there is justice, all those Guero’s people will realize their folly and go up the street.
And now I realize that this has become the kind of blog where I tell you what I had for dinner. I’m going to indulge myself every once in a while with posts that I can’t justify as forwarding some sort of imagined academic debate.
I’m hoping that opens things up, leads me to write a little more about technology, and a little more in general. Besides, I really want people to go to the Woodland.
