I realize it is extremely difficult to live by this philosophy in an urban setting .Where the almighty dollar rules.

Hence the fact that having abandoned crowded conurbations for the relative quiet of a small village thirty years ago ,I have found all the comforts of a good home ,decent neighbours,an inexpensive way of life and *Tao* has supplied me with all my aspirations and needs.

 

I don't know how

I don't know why

I just accept this bounty and share what I can.

 

I also feel a lot for all those who are stressed out just keeping a home and food on the table.

 

But one thing for sure .One has to have had a lot of cash at one time to find this way.

It's unusual for me to be on-line this early in the day . But its raining heavily and I'm not in the mood for indoor carpentry.My hands are sore after the latest stint. So I'm sitting here catching up with a glass of red wine and a cigeret o:) Got an old pc loading xpsp1. maybe add 2 to it later . But I will d/load Puppy and "stick* it just to try it out on that pc. If I like the way it "boots" over the installed os I will have to install it on the HD. and blow XP back down the tubes.

Cheesh dis wine ish good. >_< :'( .

Well even if its raining the wx is a lot warmer and I may divest myself of the top three T-shirts under my two sweaters.

I will not have the same bulk so I hope not to get slagged over losing weight :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

Going for anudder wyyne mush b 16% at leasht. :luck: The penalty for being oirish :luck:

Mmmm... wine for breakfast. I don't think I could handle that nowadays. Course, I'm only a diluted part Irish. That may be my problem. ;)

Well my drunken efforts yesterday wound up with the dmn Pc getting booted and suited alright . Now for the good bit.When I started it up today I had an idea something wernt pukker,took me a while but the resolution was way off and when I tried to reset it *** no luck*** its jammed in 4bit lol.

Had a look in dev man. No monitor .and allsorts corrupt ,dll's missing , cheesh ! So I wonder if its worth the bother after all . 20gig HD 254 ram 1.8 cpu . ...Might make a good doorstop . Dont talk to me about the bios . I think Dell made really short life boxes . Definately not bullet proof .

 

The screen is like look out of a yashmac or a rough net curtain ..

Anyway I'll use it for a door stop for a while until I can revive a little interest . :bounce: :bounce: :clap: :fish: :fish: :fish: :ermm: Going back to guinness. At least thats something I know about .

Thinking I'll bump this with some light banter..

Anyway ,as you see I logon almost every night .

Then I catch up on all the new posts

.I am learning a lot from the interaction between you guys.

That's good for me.

Keeps the cortex open .

When that's done I drift over to the serious linux how'to pages

Had a look at the ports last nite ,surprised there were NO surprises.

Then after the serious stuff I go for a wander round the net looking for interesting footage ,news,movies, etc.

Still havent got sound on Skype as Dmn.PulseAudio is back .

Must have come down with the update/upgrade. Whatever.

I have to get to terms with ALSA and find a way to make that my preferred sound *engine*

If you watch above until they go in sync you're as crazy as me . :hysterical:

Had a nasty nightmare last night . Cant remember it ,probably good as I woke up is a sweat . So this morning I went out in the truck for a plug around the local town and loaded up a ton of spoil from and hauled that home . I needed the exercise . Now the arthritus in my back is at me ,But I should sleep well tonite .

 

Boring this aint it .

 

I have to get an up to date book on Linux as the O'Reilly I have is dog eared out of date and only yadders on about Red Hat.

So I have to do a fair bit of deciphering to get thing along on Debian.

Still not competent with Deb. When I am satisfied or completely frustrated I will get back on to the other box and finish Slackware.

 

Ah yes the past three days have been warm and sunny ,not the usual rain and drizzle ,so I got a bit more work on my roof done .

 

While I've been typing this the "no icons " thread came to mind . This happened to me a couple of years ago . and as i remember it was caused by a virus called F-Nimba or something like that . Avira .got rid and after that no worries as I used that for a firewall afterwards.

 

Maybe someone could do a trace and help that guy out .

 

Now I'm going for a BIG WHISKEY .. :devil: :devil: :devil:

Didn't seem cool then ,just normal . The first one of that crew that I met and got on really well with was Boss. Back in the old Deviants days when Mick Farren fronted . He was crap. Sandy left and I dissappeared on my roadmaster . Buzzed around all over England for a while .When I finally got back to London the guys had formed Hawkwind . That was a bit wishey washy so things changed again and boss and the guys reformed as M/head. Sorry it didn't seem like any biggy at the time . Just a bunch a freeks hangin out .

The first time I heard about the Debian book it wasn't in print . I gonna get that out of the missus for me birthday next week

 

 

Just another little tidbit. One day when Mandelkau and I were heading up to the guys flat .We saw that there were rehearsals on in the theater next door . So we looked in and saw that they were rehearsing HAIR,, Soooo we sat down in the pews and lit up and watched for a while . Pretty soon some guy came over to us and asked if we would audition . ( Jamie and I had dark hair halfway down our backs and were dressed in the London style). A bit of conversation ensued during which a big round sheet was brought out on stage .There was a lot of singing and then a dive under the sheet with a fair amount of hustling going on under there . Next thing a chick pops out in the starkers followed by another then a guy then more all starkers. When Jamie and I could pull ourselves off the floor we beat a retreat . Man we laughed till we bust a gut . There was no way we could have done what those heads did ,on stage ..Nooooo Way.

To be honest, by the time a good book is produced, the information contained inside is out of date. Granted, with Debian it's not as bad. Debian's release cycle is very slow most times.
