Christmas and Weddings
Posted on 19th December 2007
December is proving to be a month full of activities. I don’t mind this, but I do miss how slow it seemed that Christmas came. As a child, it always took too long. As an adult, it comes and goes quicker then a passing car.
This past weekend, my good friend and past rommate, Karl, got married. I had the honor of being his best man. This entailed not only a speech, but ensuring that everything is taken care of while they enjoy a nice week in Jamacia.
I can not wait to see my family in a few days. I am planning a trip to Pittsburgh for Christmas. It will be short since I have work to do back here, but it will be worth every sparing minute.
I inherited a laptop this week. It sports a pentium 4 3.0Ghz processor and ATI graphics. The WXGA screen is nice and is just as good as my monitors on the desktop machine. Ubuntu installs smoothly and detects the ATI card just fine. The only thing that needed down was to install the bcm43xx firmware. That too 2 seconds once plugged into the internet. So far I am happy.
