Incremental Change

Apr. 6th, 2010 | 09:41 pm

I've been using Linux Mint as my primary OS for about 3 years now. However, some of my machines were not -- how you say? -- "compliant". Yes. Well. All of my gear is about the same age and so it all failed at the same time. As I replace dead HDD's, I am purging my non-professional world of non-Open-Source software once and for all. I've had an excuse or two for awhile for keeping this or that alive, but now, I don't see anything I can't do with a VM or WINE to fill in the blanks. Gimme a couple of weeks here and I should be almost copyright-free at home.

Mr. Mooney: Shut it. You know how things work. Snark at a cat if you need to let it out.

You know what's one of my pet peeves? No matter, I'm gonna tell you anyway: those damned vinyl stickers in the bottom driver's side corner of the rear window of SUV's and mini-vans with the stick-figure "daddy", and slightly shorter, a stick-figure "mommy", and, in descending height proportional to age and gender, stick-figure effigies of any children the couple might have, followed by size-proportionate stick-figure pets.

I figure the reason they start at the left side of the window (as read) is because there are tiny dots representing household rodents, insects, and microbes, all proportionately and asymptotically smaller. I figure if they REALLY wanted to put things in perspective, they'd start with brontosaurs, then move toward blue whales, then elephants, then cattle, and so on.

Maybe the "descending order" scheme is for crossing off hit lists? Naah. Too easy.

You're not Facebook. I like that sometimes. Sometimes I forget that I like that. Sometimes I take the lightning-fast updatery for granted. Sometimes I just want to read about cartoons. Then, of course, I remember that LJ is still there, slowly and patiently archiving my days in a logical and orderly format. Oh, if life were only so straightforward!

I guess this isn't much of an update, but what the hell. It's bedtime and I need my Beauty Rest.

I should post a bunch of my recent fire pix. Damn, I'm tired. It's been a long day. Swinging a drip torch and chainsaw all day really takes it outta you. Also, all my gear smells like smoke. OT is pretty rockin'.
