A film Update

Twit This! | 1 comments |

Ok all, Apologizing for a rather hasty review of the new Ubuntu is in need but not fully thought out. I doubt people are having this problem but it seems that the Firefox beta seems to enjoy locking up more often then kids complain about fingers being hurt (inside joke...hahaha suckers this one is just for me).

Anyway, everyone should be mildly surprised about today, unless of course you were born yesterday or even so you would need to have been born under a rock in some insipidly boring area of the world...say, say...well you fill it in but today was the relase of GTA IV. Which heralds a great day for all of the closet mass murders / serial rapists / general funny folk that spend most of their "careers," if you can call them that on the PS3 or now XBox. But, nigh you would be quite disapointed because there are plenty of people complaining about their copies freezing at the intro movie...which is quite interesting. Oh and then there is someone who got mugged and stabbed in line for the game in London this morning. Jeez guys ("Rockstar"), get it together!

Hey folks, it definitely has been some time before we have had a good ole talk about the world of open source. If you have been sitting behind a rock or at best (and this probably goes for the most of you) just do not care about open source software. Well read on if you really care but as a good warning...the new version of our ever beloved Ubuntu is sexy at best.

As always Ubuntu, and unlike the nastiness of say Fedora, has an amazing installer. It basically coddles most of our useless hands through formating your hard drive and getting Ubuntu from the live CD to your hard drive. One thing needs to be said though that the installer is very reminiscent of the old installer which is definitely ok.

From the installer to working is fairly simplistic as long as you had your computer plugged up to an internet source during the install. Unlike windows, Ubuntu is fairly good at installing any and all drivers unless you have a video card / Broadcom chipped wireless card. Again it blinks at you, you click the icon, put in your password and check some boxes and BAM easy fix. One or two things have changed in Hardy from 7.10 but most of them are worth the switch.

Transmission is now the default bittorent collect wich is pimp since this lightweight piece of software easily out does utorrent for the pc. And the second is Remote Desktop Viewer which can easily handle multiple VNC connection which is amazing. Ubuntu still has all the graphic slickness that was found in the latter version which allows you to simply wow your friends with glitter that is akin to OSX and leaps beyond Vista. Besides being probably the sexiest version of Ubuntu to date, its blazing startup times, great integration and driver support...well there really is no besides. You people really should get off your duffs and take a test drive. I mean slip the CD in your computer, reboot and BOOM, if you do not like it refrain from hitting the install key and nothing is changed. Easy, simple, elegant.

Hey all,

I have been accruing the normal hilarity during my time off from blogging however most of the time is spent solely on that proverbial couple of words: job search. So if things are sparse then you all...all of you who do not really fallow my blog know why.

Oh well, life is full of changes and all of them are for the best. Frankly, I am surprised I got this far. No one said it better then a good friend of mine:

"Maybe you just don't have the ability to work with pussies"

Although I hate the derogatory term I think he hit a nail right on the head. Well all, looking for that IT job, you got one, come on and comment.
