New beginnings

I've been busy in the last week.

It turns out I put on about 4-5kgs while I was in the States. I've started going to the gym 3 times a week as well as boxercise, hopefully twice but at least once. I still haven't been able to push myself to get out of bed in the morning to get back into my walking/morning exercise routine.

I'm also doing this hundred pushups thing, which is kinda neat.

Jess and I have been looking for places to move out into, as we have outgrown our little room here. Way outgrown it. Unfortunately because of my work taking most of the available business hours, Jess has been doing most of the looking and applying. (I do feel annoyed at myself for sitting back and letting Jess organise the majority of these things - I am getting certain essential bits on my part done though!)

I have also been trying to change the flavour of linux I have installed. I have been getting very comfortable with linuxmint/fluxbox edition, but the repo's it points to aren't getting updated. I did attempt to convert the latest version linuxmint over to fluxbox, but I feel like its way too much work. Instead I have been trying to install various flavours that have fluxbox by default.

From what I can fathom, fluxbuntu is not ready for primetime yet (and still based on gutsy). Also, the debian/ncurses based install script didn't play well with the liveusb I set it up on. Next on the list is PCFluxboxOS or TinyFlux, I've been trying to get the iso set up on my USB but extlinux isn't playing well with it. My del.icio.us bookmarks have a heap in there on setting up bootable usb thumb drives. Bonus is it saves on CD's.

Righto, thats all for today/this week. Later.
