Pieces and bits Tuesday

By , April 8, 2008 10:06 pm

Made myself get out of the house a bit today. Walked over to the yard sale trailer to sort some more books out only to find that I had turned the power off last week for the storms adn had failed to turn it back on. So got the pickup (which I had also moved over there to prevent a tree from doing the nasty to it last Friday) and took a ride around the old Airsoft field. Still a big mess out there. The persons that are supposed to clear the mess up haven’t made much headway and today is one month to the day after the last game. Tired of waiting for them to get it in gear so I started cleaning up a bit. Loaded up the truck with bits and pieces in about an hour and called it a morning as I got pretty tired out.

Came back in and ate, then browsed a bit and mid afternoon went out and started a small fire and started burning some of the crap that I picked up. Unloaded most of the stuff in the truck and by supper time had the worst of it taken care of one way or another and was (and am) beat.

Came in and ate then got on the laptop and started downloading the latest Kubuntu beta with KDE 4 to try on the linux box. Decided to try Yellow Dog Linux on the iBook so went to the PCLOS machine and stated the download in there for it. Reason for the switch on downloading is the YDL disk is DVD and the iBook will only burn cd’s but the Linux box has a DVD burner in it. Anyway have got the Kubuntu disk done and am waiting for the YDL to finish downloading to burn it and try them both. Not gonna do any of it tonight though. Bed is calling. Will try to get another load of crap cleaned up tomorrow if I’m not to sore from todays bit. The morning will tell. Till then…

    ‘Twas an interesting/busy day for me, also. This weekend we had a major hardware failure that didn’t help the network any, and then Monday night there apparently was a power surge/dropout/something or other that caused more problems. Now I am having to reset the DNS on, it looks like, ALL the teacher/staff machine (with a very few exceptions) at one of the schools, but not the other. Not really sure why only one, but I don’t complain about fortuitous happenings….

    Today looks like fun–we still have to replace/rebuild the machine that died this weekend, and there are several things I didn’t get around to yesterday that I meant to do Monday and the plan as of NOW is to go and do them very first thing today–at least until something else blows up and gets in my way. Oh, well, that’s life.

    Did a minor run through from the live DVD of BEL 1.5 the other night–looks interesting. Going to have to install it, just as soon as I figure out which machine to install it on, and how much RAM to throw at it, etc. I’m trying to get a couple things going at once here, and the hardware I WANT to do things on is not cooperating, so I guess I’ll swap around a little bit. Weekend’s coming….
