You know, I just don't have that much to report. My style is more list style, so I'll give that a go again. I guess if LJ did powerpoint presentations I could present my life for the last three weeks in bullet points. (hehe)

  • Bought a new tool bag - a backpack called the Booq Boa 3M. Very nice.

  • Designed a new tool roll, will get it made up in the next week or so.

  • Service Manager at work quit, which means I get to share with the other senior tech his duties from now in (something like 60/40 him/me)

  • Tried the new Debian on my personal laptop. It worked, and I was getting happy with it, but then decided to try out Win7rc. It turns out the VGA in my laptop doesn't support Aero. Which makes Vista/Win7 not look its best.

  • And no, I can't force Aero to turn on. I'll probably go back to linux in a couple months

  • Oh, and Debian still doesn't recognise Internode's mirror as official. Might ask someone. There's probably a good reason, though.

  • Lots of people we know have been having babies. MALE babies. Maybe its just me but shouldn't there be more female babies? Like a 50/50 ratio? Maybe there's more elsewhere that is making up for our little universe.

  • Given up for now on voip. Couldn't find the right power supply for my PoE injector, I'll try and get a freebie from work one day.

  • The mediaserver is powering along. Need to a) solve issue where fsck does an intensive check on all hdd on bootup b) install webmin so Jess can restart it without me present and

  • c) at some point would like to exchange the linux mint 6 on there for debian 5.0. But then why fix it if it ain't broke right? RIGHT?

Would really like to leave Facebook. It just seems so pointless to me. The difference between FB & twitter doesn't seem like much on the surface - but in reality its a grand canyon. On FB, I've mostly only got people who I have actually met or people that I interact with daily. So content is mostly inane stuff that on the surface, I'm not that interested in. (Oh, you've done another survey/took some blurry photos from drunkenness last night/are now a fan of something intangible like laughter ... )

On twitter, I follow people who post stuff that I'm interested in - news, linux, tech stuff, programming, gadgets, etc. Its like digg on steroids.
