My new toy

Ok, got some good news for everybody, I got my new notebook up and running (yay!) and felt it would be appropriate to write something about it, so this is a bit of a technical blog for a change.

Right, so let's get this thing going, specs are as follows:
Lenovo G550
Dual Core Celeron (think it 2.6Ghz, but hey, who gives a damn?)
2GB Ram
250GB SATA drive

Currently I'm running Ubuntu ultimate on it and I have to say it performs a lot better than my old Acer 4223wmi used to, the only small issue I have is the keyboard, it's your typical IBM clicky type keyboard which I actually love, but I spent so much time on the soft touch keyboard on the Acer that it just feels weird.

Anyway, that's about as technical as I want to get these days, so back to my screwy old style... that is, if you can actualy call it style!

Have you ever wondered if the USA actually ever landed man on the moon or was it just a giant hoax? Think about it and feel free to comment if you want me to say anything about it.

So now, on to my usual tip of the day, if you like drinking tea while working on your notebook, never get it too close to the keyboard... unless you have a Lenovo with waterproof keyboard, but still, it is a bad idea!

I really hope you find this tip usefull, for some of you it may be a bit too late, but hey, it's common sense.

Back again

Ok, ok, I know it's been a while since my last blog post, but hey, what can I say? It's been a busy time and to be honest I didn't really have anything to write about.

So, you may be asking what's been happening in my life since my last post, to be honest, not much actually... I mean, sure, I became an uncle again, I started training one of my dogs, working on the farm and helping old clients with issues and that's about all there is. I know what you're thinking, boy, this guy has one BORING life! And I totally agree with you! My life has always been like this and to be honest, I kinda like it this way, thank you very much. Now, I challenge you to take a long, hard look at your own life and let's see how exciting it is...

Anyway, back to the post at hand and the way I currently feel and the way I think this country is going with all this soccer nonsense... Personally I think this country is going to be more screwed up after the soccer, sure, a couple of folks will make some money, but let's be honest, do our hospitals have the experience, funding and equipment to deal with any major issues? I think the world will see a different side of SA with the soccer, I think they will finally realise that this country is going to shit.

Now on to another issue I feel pretty strongly about, the current politacal climate is getting interesting and I can't help wondering why the ANCYL has to go for military training, I mean, who are they going to fight and why? I'll just leave it at that, before everybody starts shouting at me and accusing me of being politically incorrect.

Moving on with the program we find ourselves on the subject of.... who knows? Maybe you should comment and give me a topic to write about, challenge me... if you dare!

Oh, almost forgot my usual tips and tricks. I thought long and hard about this tip and I have to say, it really is usefull and since I'm in such a good mood I'm going to give you two tips today, first tip: when taking a leak, always face downwind and tip number two: when preparing chicken, make sure to tie its legs before chopping off the head.

So there you go, usefull advice on a useless blog. Feel free to donate.
