Eep, Here Comes Linux

Righto, so I know this post is pretty late ... but I've had a busy morning so far. I took the plunge and decided to load Linux onto my work machine - no, no, don't worry I still have WIndow's installed on another partition (this may be a bit too much computer speak for some of you so I'll apologise now). Anyway, I figure I'll give the whole Linux thing a bash (since we were neever using any Windows specific software anyway) and if I'm comfortable enough in a month or two, I can scrap Window's entirely ... so not such a plunge, more of paddle ;)

So, now I am completely set up and it's back to work again. But I have a littl time to tell you that although Varen & I were both home from work at a reasonable hour (before 5!) yesterday afternoon, we still did not get up to much at all. This has been a super quiet week ... which doesn't bother me in the least knowing what's in store for next week! Oh, and I think I've got my route to work almost perfected now :) It's the little things.

Update 13h04 : Oops, I forgot to mention that yesterday we had Heather Ford from iCommons come and chat to the company for about an hour - apparently it's a Thursday Speaker thing they do here. It was more interesting than I thought (once we got past the dull copy-write bit and into the more question & answer bit) and I'm looking forward to our future Thursday speaker sessions :)

Partition! I understand that. My own PC is partitioned so that I can have XP instead of the bloody Vista it came with. But, of course, somebody other than me had to figure out how to set that up.

Linux is light years beyond me.

Have a fab weekend, chica.

@tamara - Yeah, I now have Windows Vista (crappity crap crap crap) and Linux ... Sadly they don't have any more XP licenses here or I would've stuck to that ;)

Jarred said... all likelihood you will be one of the speakers even.

@angel - yeah, I think the weekly speaker idea is a good one :)
