Just wishing everyone (expect those who I hate) a very Happy New Year for 2003!
Aye, it is indeed the birth of a new era, for I finally hauled my arse and got that router put together…. ish. Got a phone call off Helen saying she needed a pooter to do her Uni work and asked if she could borrow my laptop. After giving her the sad news that it was comatosed, I offered to salvage the hard drive and put it in the machine which was to be the router.
I stayed up all night to sort that out! I haven’t slept in more than 36 hours, but I finally prevailed… ish. (more…)
I’ve decided to get shot of Winamp 3 on the main pooter here and put v2.81 back on. I’m just more accustomed to this version, and plus it allows me to have the script in the top-left corner showing what I’m currently listening to. I’d like to improve it so that it’ll say that I ain’t got Winamp on or something…
After many hours of fiddling with setting in Mandrake Linux, logging on/off root, untar-ing soo many files and drinking many a cup-o-coffee, I’ve finally got BToolkit working on the Linux machine downstairs.
Now I can do my assignment work.
I was at John’s funeral this morning. It was a beautiful sunny morning, warm too. I’m just glad I got to pay my last respects to John before his burial in Guisborough. Now it’ll be a while until I can put this behind me. It’ll be difficult.
May he rest in peace.
