People have been talking recently about zombie attacks, pointing to them as signs and portents of our impending doom as a race. At first there was the story of the man who ate the face off a homeless man. He was shot by police, refused to stop eating the man's flesh, then shot some more until he died. Next there was the story of the guy who had someone's bones in his basement and was found later to have eaten him.
A rather jolly fellow pointed out that I'm still aggregated on planetkde.org and kindly requested, in the most polite way possible for me to be mindful of this. Well not really politely, but I'm sure the spirit of politeness was there.
As I don't think I can remove myself anymore, and will probably by posting to my blog, someone with the powers that be should de-aggregate me.
Ladies. Gentlemen. Gather 'round. Today I'd like to share with you an encounter I had this past week. Me and the family got home early last Sunday and, as is our custom, we ate food and stared at each other. My wife had a brilliant idea however and suggested that we go to a block party the city was holding. Having nothing better to do at the time, we went.
I haven't blogged at all in 2011. Guess school and marriage and kids can do that to a guy. I'd leave a pic, but you've already see him if you're on FB. And if not, I don't want you to see my kids. :-) Happy Easter.
I just, painstakingly, posted about 10 Facebook comments, with the following info, chronicling the steps I took to try and fix my T-Mobile Vibrant, which was
hard bricked; then I realized I have a blog where I could have posted this info and be able to get at it much easier for the next time I brick my Vibrant.
So without further ado, here's how I fixed it. A quick shout out to God for making me persistent enough to not give up. 'Preciate it aaaaaaaaaand LOVE YAH (lots) :-)
I've hit this in Arch Linux and it's quite annoying: Open-Source GPU Drivers Causing Headaches In KDE 4.5-series. I was angry at first but then I read Martin's explanation for what was happening and decided to be more forgiving.
Heeeeeey. So I got married to the love of my life and whatnot last Saturday. Fun times, lemme tell yah. But that's another (potentially too long) story for another day.
Oh yes, almost back. Almost. Getting married takes up a lot of time.
I was walking to the supermarket last week (5/25) and started thinking. Then a couple days later I started talking about the same topic in lab with someone. I thought I'd throw them out there for all the world to see (and inevitably, critique). My thoughts went thusly:
I live. The winter session of school has ended and I got a B. That brings the GPA down to a 3.8 something, I'm rather happy with this. Lab work is picking up as well. Also I have a girl. I'm extremely happy with this. She's a keeper as they say (because she's awesome).
I wish I could tell you what it was all about right now. If I did though that would ruin the surprise. And that just won't do. I'd rather kill a surprise than see it ruined.
May I just say though that God is with you. And us. And I'm so glad for that. Mostly I see the way he is working in your life and, well, I try not to screw it up. I try to do the right thing, to keep you moving forward in fellowship with him.
I was writing a post and spilled juice on my keyboard. It's one of those bluetooth ones from Apple. Apparently is has very good range. Went to the kitchen to clean it off and then came back; the post was gone. This is all you get. I'll probably do a proper post tomorrow. :-/
Anyone interested in an OS X shell account perhaps? New machine, more storage, and no willingness to do any of the stuff I did before leads me to think about this. Will actually need to think this out more as this is a dual boot machine ...
Excerpted. For your reading pleasure.
So I've been bouncing between reading 1 Peter and 2 Peter, in no
particular order recently, and it seems today that it was more fitting
for you than it was for me. I encourage you to take the time to read
chapters 4 and 5 now, then go back and read chap 1 to the end at your
(NIV version below)
1 Peter 4: 12 starts "Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful
trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to
you.13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ,
And who doesn't? Like curves I mean. I'm not just talking about any old curves here though.
The QtCurve style for KDE is, as far as I can tell, an attempt to unify the desktop UI experience between Gnome and KDE, and a darn good one at that.
