exercise, and computers

I finally sat down last night and took another swing at getting linux back on my workstation at home. This time, I went with Fedora (redhat's non-commercial branch). Fedora's got bleeding edge everything; kernel 2.6, x.org instead of xFree86, etc.

I was pretty impressed. This is the first time I've installed linux, and not had to spend a couple hours digging around online in windows to find the necessary drivers for my hardware, then spend another hour compiling things. It Just Worked. I've got a little bit of tweaking to do tonight, but overall, I'm pretty impressed; it's even got a version of apt-get, which is one of the reasons I like debian so much.

So, tonight, I should finally be able to rip the CDs I bought a month ago, which means I'll actually listen to them. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get my wacom tablet working with the Gimp 2 as well, since it is supposed to have full support for pressure sensitivity, etc.

In other news, my shoulder is still hurty. I'm going to the gym tonight, but no kung fu, no weights, and no pushups. The rest of my body is mad that I've been skipping workouts. The nutritionst told me I should go get my shoulder looked at by a physiotherapist or something. I'm starting to think that, just maybe, I should actually get the damned thing looked at, since it doesn't seem to be healing very well.

This has me wondering whether you can help me with something: Do you happen to know anything about Outlook? I've been having what I think is an Outlook problem, but might actually be a hard drive corruption problem in disguise, and I am having a hard time finding the right brain to pick ;) It's not a big deal and not urgent as it's currently a sporadic problem, but both UC5 and I are stumped if you have 2 minutes and want a brain teaser.

I'll give it a try, but I haven't really gotten deeply into outlook; I use pine for e-mail.

Well, you can d/l it from redhat.com (follow the links for fedora). Alternately, I can lend you my CDs for it once I get them back form pez_minotaur

linux good.

as another random and irrelevant opinion from a random and irrelevant visitor, healing shoulders is a good thing. break down and have someone look at it. it's upsetting your training, and training is too important for that to be acceptable. well, in my opinion, anyway, any hindrance to training must be swiftly and decidedly dealt with.

really, i got here on a random search, so don't mind me...

    Should work wonderfully vegan - the only reason I went with lard over shortening is that neither of us on this trip are supposed to be eating soy, and soy oil was ingredient #1 on the vegetable…

    That looks great. The opposite of what I'm trying to do the next time I make bannock (gluten's fine, dairy isn't) but now I'm inspired.

    The trick is that it requires either an oven or an actual camp fire. We might be able to take it to the singing fire - one can make the packets up in advance, then rotate them through the irons.

    That fire-roasted sweet bannock sounds amazing. Is this a thing we could try at KG?

    I don't know about you, but this is all part of my general scheme to be someone my teenaged self would have thought was cool. Or maybe become Batman. Either is good.
