What a hell is wrong with sneakers nowadays?
There is not a single model, line, or style, or what ever the hell you might want to call it, that I like. I'm getting really, really old.
Up to a couple of years ago they used to be a line re-created the same models I used to wear when I was a kid, but, sadly, those days are gone...

Vacation hardware lust...

First day of vacation... Spotted this on a CompUSA store.
A case totally made of metal... On an IBM lappie.
And the specs look rather sexy as well.

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 Obsession

Since the switch from iTunes to Rhythmbox, and then starting to use, a new form of obsession is here...
As of right now, with something like the 85% of my music files scrolled thru (3987 files played), this is how thing look at the moment.

RIP Tango

The wobbly, fast & ultra el cheapo Compaq F700 bought the ticket for good.
Does no longer boot at all, and for all the Google I did, the problem seems to be the motherboard...
Anyway, it lived a powerful and meaningful life, so she deserves the rest.

Second hard crash on Sojourner

This time everything seems to point towards the X Window server.
Out of blue the whole screen started to "scroll down" ad infinitum, that's the best way to describe it, I guess.
Keyboard was operational, I could logout of the Gnome session, and switch to a Virtual Console, but that did no good at all...
Rebooted via Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

Testing Linux Mint 12

Tested it last night on Hercules, the mighty T43.
Besides the looks, surprised me the snappiness of the whole thing, even tho I was running it from a live session from a USB stick.
Definitively a worhty option once Lucid Lynxes shelf life is over.

Slow Saturday

Nothing much around here, getting ready for a crazy week coming up.

Tested Thor and luckily it works A Ok... After all the problems it gave me turns out that all it needed it was a PRAM reset, which, in the Quicksilver I have means only removing the internal battery for something like 10/15 minutes.
After that everything worked Ok, but honestly I don't see much use for it nowadays, specially since I moved away from iTunes to Rhythmbox.
Yes, the picture is a piece of shit.

Nose dive

Literally, the weather took one, thanks goodness... The last 4 days were unbelievable hot & humid, but after last night's storm (and the change in wind direction) we got a much deserved relief.
