Where do you see yourself….

February 25th, 2006 2 comments

This question has been going through my mind for weeks, and I can’t even begin to come up with an answer. So it’s my time to turn it around on the world.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I really hope to get some responses to this one. Especially from the people that graduated last May. Answers from the LUG members would be interesting too.

Am I being mocked by a fortune cookie?

February 14th, 2006 Comments off

When I read my fortune cookie tonight, my first reaction was that my cookie is making fun of me. What do you think?

Many get advice, but only wise men profit by it.

Also, the word of the day is stoodint.


Almost did things today

Like most weeks, I had a list of things I wanted to get done this Saturday. Although I wasn’t overly productive today, I did manage to get some stuff done. This week I started using gdm (graphical login manager). So today I finished a theme for it using a background from Applegeeks. Nothing fancy, but it does get the point across to people, and I always appreciate Hawk’s art.

I meant to work on my resume and play with planetplanet today as well, but I got sidetracked with reading about vim and mutt. There’s always tomorrow.


Migration complete

January 22nd, 2006 1 comment

As you can tell, I migrated my blog. I’m now using Serendipity, and things seem to be ok. I don’t really like the themes that come with it, but I haven’t looked at the additional ones from their CVS repository yet. This will do for now. And I managed to write a script to convert my previous blog entries to the new format. Dropped one and had to manually alter a few, but that was my fault.


Hated by the Linux gods, and a random search

Upfront, I apologize for not having EasyMoblog replaced yet and fixing how text is formatted for RSS. I did try Serendipity a little this weekend, but I was actually doing things at work this week, so no migration.
Look at that, already off track. I’ve tried many times to start using duffman again this week for Solaris testing. Between forgetting memory, forgetting mouse, forgetting that I’m using dvd media without a dvd-rom, and putting a 512MB stick into a motherboard that will only accept sticks up to 256MB, I have realized that this might be the Linux gods’ way of telling me “NO!”. Whatever, I’ll find more RAM and try again tomorrow. Jerks.
On a random note though, I was thinking about the word blog. Obviously it is short for weblog, but I started questioning whether there was ever a site called WeBlog. I would assume that by now there would be some WeBlog social network service do-dad whatever, But no. is just an advertisement, redirects to a Spanish forum, and is someone’s personal blog. Interesting. This is the stuff I find interesting.
