It is a map of springfield where the Simpsons live. Definatly, a case of the ‘too-much-time-on-thier-hands’, but it is cool.
I often tought that airport security probably went a little overboard confiscating tweezers, and nail clippers and such…but check this out.
Colin Charles wrote an article called The Spatial Way talking about how the new Nautilus works in Gnome 2.6.
It took me a day or so to get used to it, and I found that I actually like it better. It is kind of the way that windows explorer worked early on, when you open a folder it opens another explorer window.
I know that they have shortcuts to close the parent windows, however I would like to suggest another shortcut. I think that a SHIFT-click on the X in the top right corner should close the current window and all parents. (I used that a lot in the old style Windows) I may just head on over to Bugzilla for Gnome and suggest that.
Over at Osnews.com they had a link pointing to TweakHound’s Super XP Tweaking Guide. Apparently this is an evolving guide, and it is at version 5 now. It has a lot of tips on making your system faster and more secure.
Just looking over some of the stuff, a lot I already new, and some things that it recommended was new information to me.
In an attempt to keep a journal, I am starting my Blog once again.
Before, I was using B2, which was alright, but a little dated. I had some problems with someone, or some software out there, posting spam on my blog. Is it not enought that I already get it in my email?!? sheesh.
I also think that also there is a scam for bandwidth. I think this because some of the comments that I was getting had little to do with what I posted, and there were a lot of them. I believe that somehow, my blog was storing comments for someone elses message board. I dont know for sure, but a hunch.
So, I finally said forget it, and ditched the whole thing. Anywho, I am back up, and willing to take another stab at it.
I will be updating the look of the site, as this is basically a default template. I like it, but I want to make this something unique.
