Friday bits and pieces

By , May 9, 2008 9:39 am

Had downloaded Puppy Linux 4.00 and burned it to CD last night and booted it up to try it out this morning and am LOVING it! This is the fastest I have ever seen this machine run, and so far everything I have wanted to do just works. I moved my .mozilla folder over and have all of my tabs and passwords and bookmarks and it ALL JUST WORKS! Yea I know I’m not supposed to shout but I’m really liking this and it’s still running from cd, kinda. I told it to save my prefs and file and stuff to the hard drive and then rebooted and it came right back up, really fast too. CD out and it’s back to PCLOS with just a small file on the hard drive. Going to try it for a few days and see how it works long term. I’ve tried it several times over the years but there was always something that irritated me and drove me back to a distro that used KDE but though this isn’t quite what I am accustomed to it works, and is fairly easy to get around in and so far nothing has made me pull any hair out, which is a big +++.

Went out and about today, mailed off a bunch of stuff sold on e-bay, then went down and paid bills. Stopped by the Salvation Army and got a bunch of books then headed to Oxford to go by the library to see what they might have for sale, and they were gone. Library has moved but all the signs just said to go to the new location. No address. Weird. Will check online and see where they have moved to. So went to the mall to look for some cooking stuff but no joy there, so back north to Save-a-Lots and got some groceries and then came back home. Cooked supper, ate and I got to trying to modify a couple of Cue Cats. One would kill the keyboard and the other was different to all the ones that have mod instructions that I could find. Got some more of them around somewhere but can’t find them right now. So decided to do the days post and call it a night. Till tomorrow…
