I've still got 8 or 10 inches of snow in my backyard, but with warmer temperatures and rain forecast this weekend, I hope that will be gone by Monday. Your daffs are lovely--I love spring flowers the best. My favorite is crocus--so delicate looking, but so tough.

Today was a mixed day of sadness and joy. Sadness because a good neighbors daughter was buried. She was run over by a big eight-wheeler while cycling on her way to work at the beginning of the week

If the two "coats" are males, chances are they've just found a girlfriend down the road. They'll be back when they're done courting. I have a couple males (Whitey and Big Guy) who come here to eat on

This I've just got to relate :- Greycoat unsurprisingly really likes chicken . This morning I was down the other end of the garden laying a random stone footpath when I heard an unusual noise . Lookin

This is one of the advantages of having the Gulf stream just off the coast . If you are near the coast have you seen any increase in iceberg activity coming down the Greenland channel.

I'm 20-30 miles back from the east coast of USA so no icebergs, although I understand that there's been a lot of ice on the shores of Cape Cod off Massachusetts.

update:- Spring really is here ,the garden is full of Daffs and narcissii. All the bigger plants are in serious bud and a noisey pair of magpies have built a nest on top of a bush 10ft from the back door.

 

I found an old "bent pin" AMD duron that with a little persuasion I got it into the A370 socket 0n the Gateway profile 3. Now to find a cooler fan small enough to fit inside the case . Cluttermagnet would love this one.

 

Painting ceilings all week . Back not great , But can live with a few aches.

 

And I found 3 friends that I haven;t seen for about 5 yrs .. Happy Days . Jam sessions this summer. Charlie Parker forever :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hello all,

I didn't know where else to bring up this subject ,the jist of which is. :- As usual when I'm not on here or watching free movies I go bombing around on the internet (surf) So just out of curiosity I started looking for non-Windows,non-Linux , operating systems .

I had no idea there was anything other than the Sun system out there . I was surprised to find so many . Some forked off unix and so on . There were two that grabbed my curiosity . Reactos . alpha . and Haiku .beta. Both of which can run off an active disk/pen drive or on virtual machine.

So far the only os I've tried off the disk was Trisquel . I liked it but it was a tad slow . So Debian is my surfing wife .

Have any of you tried any of these alternative systems ,and if so how did you fare.

I am very curious and would appreciate feedback

Peace and tranquility to all .

Crow :luck:

:hmm: That's a big surprise ... I'm putting another box together and am seriously thinking about putting Haiku on it .

Like most Linux booters I'm very curious and adventurous . So I will be rooting around the Haiku forums a good bit while I compile my research and make a firm decision .

Thanks for the replies

Good luck with Red Hat . I fell down that hole about 2004. Even though I had the dead wood book it still was not an easy distro .

Saying that times move on and mayhaps it's a lot more user friendly these days .

Keep us posted .

update:- Finally got my sticky little fingers on my partners MSI.

It's tiny but got a quad cpu 1.6g per corner 300g hd ,but a miserable 1g ram . Loaded with w7 starter .

Now here's is the good bit . I put it on the net to do the updates/cleaners/etc and it swallowed up 608mb of my data allowance .

It runs at deadcrawl speed . But all things being equal it would be a really good little netbook with a complete reinstall.

I have always liked the opensource version of RedHat... CentOS. It was always a fine distribution.

You do realize that it is only a 30 day trial as redhat does not offer a free version. Redhat is an enterprise only distro, hence why Fedora was created for the Community:

My brother's a big Linux boy nowadays. Maybe I'll install CentOS on his systems for him next time around. :)

Not a problem. If you do like it, run CentOS as it is basically a free clone of Redhat Enterprise.

Friends don't let friends type drunk.

 

You don't want to get stopped by the cops, Cap'n. They might make you draw a straight line. ;)

Don't you mean "friends don't let friends type sober"?
