Selling the dream

it took a long conversation, many demos of Kubuntu (it's still on the laptop, week 4 now! Whey!) and many beers to let me in with a proposed demo to pitch against his MS setup. A mini network, a couple of users from each team, typists, accounts, orders, processing etc. If it works he'll take it on, if not, then nothing has been lost but my time and a stupid bet involving being Naked, Guinness, vindaloo, traffic cone and a stop watch.

Kubuntu Clash: Should I stay or should I go?

Over the past month or so I have been dipping my big toe into the Linux pool, just testing the waters. The reason for a move to Linux isn't one based on the love of open source, free choice or free software, the reason is far more capital, the devil drives when the bills need paying, work. Anyway, over the past weeks of swimming with Linux I've had less sleep than I have in a long long while, I've been more frustrated, argumentative, pounding the keyboard and flicking the finger(s) at the screen. Is this the norm?

Grumpy old git!

Why is it that some drivers, on open roads, fail to see the speed limit signs? Why? I don't mean they are speeding, I mean they are driving slower. Much slower. 25mph in a 30mph zone, 40mph in a 50mph zone! Come on! These are open roads with no room to overtake it is so frustrating! And that white circle with a black line? IT MEANS 60MPH NOT 40!!! (motorway 70 accepted)

Baby did a bad bad thing....

Well from the last thing I wrote in here somewhere (being new means you have no idea where things are), things have changed on the laptop front. After writing some good things about Ubuntu I stumbled across some articles on Suse floating around the 'net and up pops the thought, "perhaps I didn't give it a proper go". Dangerous thought, very dangerous.

Although The Break-up is laced with wit and charm throughout, the theme and ultimate outcome make it not the best flick to take a date. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston star.

Cars - The Must-See Movie of the Summer?

Filed under
Reviews

I, along with most of the country, enjoyed the new Disney/Pixar release of the summer. The movie was great, but the commericalization and over-saturation are lowering the "cute" factor for me.

The new remake of The Omen that hit theaters last weekend was a great disappointment. It lacked the suspense and biting "horror" found in the original.

When you hear about spam in the news, they're always talking about email spam... but of late, the spammers are taking a different tack, and it seems that they're not giving up without a fight.
