Mac Mini... PC?

The Screen Savers host Kevin Rose (I still prefer Leo) managed to fit PC parts inside a Mac Mini case.

Unfortunately, there's no CDROM/DVDROM drive. He could use a Pioneer 106s or 120s Slot-in drive as a start.

A very cool project. But a waste of a perfectly good Mac Mini.


New Look

Been customizing the look of my blog. I'm a fan of the Matrix and green terminals (circa 1980's monitors). There's supposed to be more matrix code beneath the page but I can't seem to hack it with the stylesheet. Grrrr!

Ubuntu Part Two

In my previous post, Ubuntu sent me their package of 11 CDs (10 x86 & 1 for AMD64/EM64T). They just released "Hoary Hedgehog" (or 5.04) and promises to be better than ever. I heard that the guy who's financing Ubuntu is the same guy who paid the russians to take him to space. It was said that he reffered to himself as "disgustingly rich".

So is Linux ready for the desktop?

Anyway, time to order new CDs!


Ubuntu, Spam, etc

Got a package from the Netherlands the other day. I ordered Ubuntu Linux CDs a couple of weeks ago. I never thought they'd actually grant my request. I heard lots of people have been waiting for ages to get a bunch. I got 10 CDs for x86 PCs and 1 for AMD64/Titanium chips.

I tried the Live CD version first to "see" how it feels. I can't seem to adjust the frequency of the monitor. The result was the desktop was skewed to the left. Haven't totally tried the other boot options. The Mrs was giving me the Evil Eye(tm).

I email a request to an ISP a while ago. One of our clients mails were missing. Funny thing is, all other mails coming from someone else were fine.

My email to the corporate support bounced back. The mother ISP of that ISP (makes sense?) is rejecting the mail because the ISP was blacklisted by spamcop. Hahahaha! That's system administration for yah.

I love my job.


Firs Post

Yay. Been trying to register here for a while. Not an easy task. Anyway, hope to post more stuff later. As soon as I finish some projects!
