I am getting ready for Ottawa Linux Symposium. I had to find out that there is no way to get Canadian visa without leaving Cyprus. After reading this informative website I am getting ready to visit Canadian immigration office in Syria, which, in turn, forces me to, first, get Syrian visa.
I am back to Afterstep. While I’ve found KDE to be very usable and powerfull, my fingers are trained for Afterstep. I will still use KDE at home though, where I am not pressured with time.
While I was testing KDE this time, I have found
khelpcenter (Help icon in the main menu) to be extremely useful. It does a good job integrating KDE specific documentation with the rest of manuals, info pages, etc installed on the system. Yeah, info pages in particular.
I am thinking about a small project which will incorporate many of my small notes. What I have in mind is to create a new user on one of my hosts and generate step-by-step complete home environmnent starting from the shell prompt, vim, mutt, procmail, simple scripts that make everyday life easier and ending with… Well, not ending actually. Some Bash prompt tips will come handy later on.
I have decided to downgrade my DVD box to Red Hat 7.2. I am tired of fighting with the laggy picture and sound. 7.2 had it all nice. 7.3 broke it and I cannot find whether it’s the kernel, XFree, something else, or the combination. I’ve got to find those antique CDs. :)
Officially engaged. :) July 8th I’ll be a married man :)
Set through a lengthy (about 4 hours) and a bit boring presentation by EMC about SAN, NAS, storage solutions in general, and their products in particular.
