Gutsy Update

well… I took a Kubuntu 7.10 (Alt) install disk up to Redding over Thanksgiving and installed it on mom’s laptop… install went fine (it’s a Dell Inspiron notebook) but the Broadcom wireless card is giving me fits… i ended up bringing the lappy home from Cali with me and I promised to have it ship-shape by the time I get back there at Christmas…

I’m taking suggestions for other distro’s, tho… if anyone has any thoughts… basically, I want to have a KDE desktop (for ease of use and familiar feel) but, I don’t anticipate them needing to upgrade/install apps so, K/X/Ubuntu’s package management sys is not such a huge selling point… the lappy has a 2ghz celleron but is really short on RAM…

feedback, please!!!

long time, no post….

I feel like I have been away forEVER!!! There’s so much on my mind and I haven’t had the opportunity to get it all sorted!

Thanksgiving was great… I traveled up to northern California to see my parents and my sister. Fish didn’t come with me on this trip, but he and I will be up in Redding again over Christmas week… Originally, I was supposed to have Fish over Thanksgiving, but his cousins (Her brother and sister-in-law and their kids) were in Vegas visiting Her parents and I didn’t want him to miss out on that… they always have such a great time together and Her brother and all are really strong Christians and I wanted Fish to be around that… so it was a win-win… Now, Fish and I are going to drive up to Redding the Friday before Christmas and stay for a bit!! Grammy and Seanair (my mom and dad… Seanair is Scottish Gaelic for “grandfather”) and Fish’s “Aunt Nancy” are very excited to see him…

I’ve got lots more I want to write but I don’t have the time just now… I want to write about Tgiving dinner and I want to write about movies coming out and… and… and… LOL

TTFN,
Matty
