Dear Fedora 14

I love you. I feel like I don't tell you this enough. This morning I tried to install ubuntu on a secondary drive and it was a nightmare to get stuff working. Then I just popped in you live CD and overwrote everything with a working OS in like 5 minutes. It was fantastic.

Church of the ascension parking and plow

Now that the snow is finally melting you can see how much of the grass they had been plowing and parking on.

Update: here you can see what matthew is talking about.

They also stopped putting their trash bins in their corral which has lead to this:

3am computer drama

When I first got a second harddrive for my laptop I decided to use dd and clone the current one instead of starting from scratch. This was never really an issue because I booted separately from the BIOS and the two shared no data.

Then yesterday at 1am I was testing with lvm when I decided to try and mount the second encrypted drive on the first. Needless to say this cause major drama and they have the same everything. I tried to change the volgroup name on the second one and it changed it on the first one too. This ended up leaving both systems a bit trashed. It was really late and I was so tired. Luckily, I had a boot disk and was able to resolve the issue from there.

Dear Google, I am sad about my lack of CR-48

I have spent the last couple years evangelising the awesomeness of google, android and their other products to everyone I know. I am one of those people that influence a lot of other people's technical decisions as they come to me for support and advice.

image

I used to be the guy who tried to convince everyone that asked me to buy a mac. Then they became why too restricted. I dropped the iphone and switched to the google Nexus One. I was so committed to the switch and the idea of having a pure android phone I even shelled over the $570 for one directly from google. At the same time I dropped the macbook pro in favor of a Dell running Fedora.

The problem is Fedora, and linux in general, does not seem to be easy enough for me to suggest it to the same non-tech savy people I would suggest a mac to. That is unless it is paired with hardware that works good with it, like the laptop (e:tinypliny) wanted to order from system76 There is something to be said for laptops that come with an OS specifically taylored for them. E.g. the macs. Having people get macs generally solved the spy ware virus drama everyone seemed to run into with porn, file sharing, etc and reduce the number of support questions I get.

I was really hoping that I would get a google CR-48 for testing so that I could tell those same people to hang in there and wait for a google chrome OS netbook. I applied a couple months back but have heard nothing. Then (e:chris) got his today ;( I am so jealous. The idea of a simple web based OS sounds perfect for me on the go and most data consumers I know. Unfortunately, I have not made the list so far.

Android Me

There is this new app for android called androidify where you can make an android version of yourself.

This is me. If only they had a tortoise pet option.

Tubing in colden

It was nice to get outside and tube. The weather was cool but not freezing. Well that or my new warm boots really make a difference.
By the end of the evening the car said it was 40 degrees.

It was fun to have (e:samathon86) back in town. When we were in line some kid ran up to us and asked him how he did his hair like that. I assume he meant curly because the kid had totally straight hair. The kid then said he thought it looked so cool. It was cute.

Hurling yourself down the icetracks headfirst never feels right. Especially, when a bunch of other people are complaining about injuries and three lanes are closed because if dangerous conditions.

Smokey Bones

I am not usually one to eat at chain places but (e:enknot) said the BBQ at Smokey bones was good so we gave it a try on the way home from tubing.

Turns out it was really good and they has a big selection to choose from. I got the smoked wings and the Cobb salad. The smoked wings were delicious but not as good as the ones at one eyed jacks.

Its also nice that its open till 1am.

The thing I don't get is why they have such a problem with bears.

HIV testing at a bar?

Last night they had HIV testing at Cathode. A bar seems like such a weird place to have HIV testing. I would imagine being drunk at a bar might not be a good place for getting possibly devistating news.

Hummer bikes

There are Hummer bikes at the bike store on Allen. I can't decide if I hate it or if I want one because its so ironic.
