If I haven’t mentioned this yet, I’ve upgraded my computer to Ubuntu 7.10 (a few days back). Unfortunately, I have homework, and I hate homework. On the bright side, I dissected a cow’s eye at school today and got to keep the lens. It’s sitting on my shelf right now, so I now have an internal eye part in my possession! How cool is that!
If you haven’t noticed, my blog’s been moved. It’s been moved to justin.nobber.org.uk/blog [sarcasm](wow, what a strange place to put a blog)[/sarcasm]
Anyway, I needed a front page to go where the blog was, but the blog is now here, safe and sound (thanks to Rob for moving it for me).
Although now I need a descent banner for the front page. I managed at least to replace the default Joomla banner, although if I haven’t made it clear, I suck at graphics. But it’ll do for now.
I went over to the Goodwill store and purchased a Pentium II with 192 MB of RAM and a 12 GB HDD and a 16 MB GFX card. Plus it has USB (finally, yes!!!). Anyway, I installed Ubuntu 7.04 on it. Although now I’m using the keyboard and mouse for my dad’s computer so I have to give the keyboard and mouse up when my parents want to use the laptop (which I finally don’t need anymore; this computer can handle video and web browsing; oh yeah, it also has a DVD player and a ZIP drive (which is totally useless. you can’t find Zip drive media anymore). Anyway, unless my parents will let me drag the printer into my room every time I want to print something (if the printer will even work under Ubuntu, but it’s not Windows so everything should work perfectly), I will still have to use the laptop (which currently isn’t working) to print stuff.
I have a new forum now! It’s called ROTFLOL Forums.
Please join it if you want! It’s powered by phpBB3 (which is really, really impressive).
Now that it’s the weekend, I can blog without concern for my homework. Well, at least until Sunday, when I’m gonna be stuck doing all of it. So first a little about my computer.
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1
CPU: Intel Pentium at 133MHz
RAM: 144 MB, over twice what XP requires
HDD: 6 GB, probably not much free space left
2nd HDD: 1.5 GB, currently not connected
Video card: 2 MB
[Wow, it’s been about two years, and I come back and find a huge invitation for spam here. I shouldn’t edit old posts, but this had to go.]
Most likely I’m at my computer or at school. And I might be listening to Weird Al.
Currently, I’m in a great mood; I bought an Ethernet card yesterday so my desktop can now get online!
