Friday May23rd 2008 - Post 2

Ok the blog is now up on WordPress and Blogspot. I must remember to link each version to each other. This is just a quick note to say I’m currently installing SUSE and the installer looks good. Also, I love the wordpress theme I’m using it rocks!

Friday May 23rd 2008


It's been quite a while since I've tried to blog life's happenings. I tend to have the habit of blogging for a week or so then giving up. Hopefully this one will last a little longer.

Since I only have a limited amount of things to talk about for today, so far, I'll start by recapping yesterday.

My morning was relatively disinteresting, I tried checking out the "wowgasm" private wow server to see if anything had changed since my last visit there around a year ago, it got boring very fast. I then started to conceptualize a limited AI system in Java - one based loosely on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, however exactly where thats going - at this point - I'm not sure.

Following that I headed to University via Office Works where I picked up the necessary craft supplies for Visual Communication (stapler, glue, invisible tape), and also a 20pk of blank DVDs.

Once at University I met up with Glenn for a little then he had a tutorial so I went off to get food. Bumped into little Jason so spent some time talking to him, Rebbecca and there other Organizations partner of whose name I'm unsure. From there I got food, a Ham and Pineapple focaccia (which ended up being messy) and a can of coke. After the focaccia was done with I was still hungry, so I went back for a spring roll.

After food I went and did my Computer Systems lab session. This was semi grueling for the first 30 minutes but then I'd finished so spent the next 3 and a half hours helping people.

Last night I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my laptop, I was hoping to duel boot it with XP but it refused to let me resize my partitions so in the end I wiped XP completely. The install was relatively fast and I was impressed by the fact that it found my wireless connection automatically, before it even started to install. However, my hopes for wireless support were soon squelched once the installation was over - after booting up my wireless network was no longer visible, and as of today I still haven't worked out how to get the net working. As a result I'm downloading openSUSE instead, if that gets me nowhere I might consider thinkGOS and then finally, back to XP again.

This morning I woke up spoke to people on MSN and then went back to bed for a little while. My cold isn't completely better yet so thats quite an annoyance. I tried to download the DVD version of openSUSE but it crashed after the first few hundred MB so I'm re-downloading the CD version. Luckily none of these Linux downloads count towards my monthly usage allowance, else I'd probably not even bother. Other than that I had a shower and decided to start a blog...again, which is why this post exists. I'm going to host it on both blog-spot and word-press, at least until I can decide between them.

I still haven't quite worked out the difference between wordpress tags and blogspot labels or if there even is any, so if things seem a little off with these elements, that's why. For now i'm off to post this on wordpress and edit the themes and look of both sites.

As this is the first day I'll most likely post again soon, I doubt however that, that frequency of posting will be upheld for long, but eh I can hope.
