I haven't been listening to enough lately... and I haven't been discovering any radically different artists lately. My average discovery rate usually hovers around 10-20 new artists every month but the last several months have been musical cesspits, more or less.

I can't stand any vocals in my music nowadays because it ruins the background concentration value. Heavy metal is ruled out for a while (except instrumental versions). Familiar selections of classical music have been getting an inordinate amount of playtime. Maybe it's time to delve into neoclassical and re-interpretations. I wonder if anyone has re-interpreted Chopin, my absolute favourite in romantic piano.

Or classical ballet. For example, I don't think I have ever heard the complete works of Leó Delibes and Ludwig Minkus before or any of their contemporaries who shaped the music of the ballet.

I could totally see why everyone is fascinated with snapping pics of our bike-boom-boxing resident 7 footer.


But I don't get this (e:Paul)-Paranoia-look(TM). What is that about?!

Compiling RTL8191SEvB Drivers on Fedora15


Many thanks go out to (e:Paul) and Andy Grimm from the Fedora Project who messaged me a few days back to say that RTL8191SEvB does work with Fedora15 and offered to help.

For those of you who are stuck with this odd-man-out driver from Realtek: RTL8191SEvB and are ruing the loss of your wireless networks on Fedora15, here's the step by step guide.

1. Download the RTL8191SE driver from Get both RTL8192SE and RTL8191SE-VA2 if you are doubtful of what to get.

2. Extract it to its own directory. Navigate to that directory using the terminal.

cd /directory_you_extracted_the_RTL8191SEvB_driver

3. Try running the make command once you are in the directory:


4. You will see this message:

make -C /lib/modules/ M=~/Downloads/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_linux_mac80211_0003.0620.2011 modules
make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

5. Note the number in bold: Append it behind the words "kernel-devel-" and key in this command in the terminal:

sudo yum install kernel-devel-

This will install the tools you need to compile the kernel.

6. Now in the terminal again, key in:


This will be followed by a ton of output and jargon mumbo-jumbo from the terminal. Once the cacophony quiets down type:

sudo make install

7. Reboot! Rejoice! Your wireless should be back.

I have finally realized that in the linux world, THIS all you need - a possibility of someone helping you out from the doldrums. If I wanted to go the roses-are-red/sky-is-blue-ad-nauseum rehash-famous-quotes route, I would say:

Making linux work = 78% dare-devilry + 22% possibility of help.

In praise of Fedora and Gnome 3.

I have switched!

Thanks to some super-human effort by (e:paul), I am finally on planet Fedora and being awed by Gnome 3.

How superawesome is it that you can just start keying in ANYTHING that comes to your mind and if its an application it comes up directly and if not, you can just hit the wiki or google button. It finally re-defines having internet at your fingertips. Now if the browser could simply BE my desktop, that would be the next step to having the net RIGHT there.

LOVING it completely! It is like I have stepped into the next century!

Now, if only I could make this blasted wireless card work and the skype camera brightness light up more and get this flash installed...

Terry Babble Bird

Behold, the Birdman Terry!


Quite honestly, I have no idea how (e:Terry) even does that. I thought only birds had the laryngeal apparatus to produce such an elaborate guttural/chirping sound. I also heard (e:Terry)'s operatic take on one of George Clinton band's songs. It was nothing short of amazing. Which, begs the question:

Terry, why aren't you in musical theatre?

When I grow up...

I think I want to be an apprentice at a professional origami performance and installation studio...

and try out the million and one teas in the world.
Now if you will excuse me, my teastrings and dissertation are calling.
