Mmmmm... multiple monitors...

Well, after several weeks of my computers not quite working properly, Rehad released Fedora Core 4 (for non geeks, that's comparable to M$ releasing whatever comes after XP, except linux distros tend to update one or more times a year) on Monday and I got downloaded yesterday. I burned it to CDs today and it installed flawlessly. I even managed to get both of my LCD monitors working on it. Check it out:

(yes that is what you think it is playing in the middle monitor). The Laptop isn't always going to be there, but it's actually a very convenient setup since it lets me get stuff on and off the machines easily. I can also access the new fileserver and now all of my MP3s and movies are on it (so far that's about 200 Gbs worth of stuff but I know I have some duplicates and I know there's some stuff I haven't ripped onto it yet so I'm not sure if that number will go up or down).

Not to sound too geeky (granted it's probably too late), but I had forgotten how much fun it is to have multiple desktops and now with multiple desktops on multiple monitors I'm really having fun ;). Now I just need to actually get around to doing some actual work on the new setup ;)

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
