YAY a present for Darwin!!!!

UP v early for a busy day

Firstly coffee, then pop to the shops to buy veg, chicken and sugar.

The some pots and put some washing in.

Then put all the lovely food into slow cooker

Then the gym and work out fo a few ours, and then a swim and sauna.

Then home to deal with another box of nonsense from front room.

And then a quiet night in with a good book, good food, some nice music and i might allow myself a beer.

Tomorrow will see me attack more of the front room YAY and tidy and hoover my room.

when my new cash card appears i will start the GREAT PAYING OF 2009

and i might even pop into the new health centre today to find out how i register with them.

so a positive start to the day and hopefully later i will have an hour or so to meditate some more.

Work have allowed me to have saturdays off so i am now free to volunteer to the local Buddhist centre so thats the next thing to look into

YAY a present for Darwin!!!!

tech and fitness

Right i have accomplished everything on this mornings list except for the gym and i am off there now YAY

Recently i have been playing with (testing) Chrome for Linux and the first thing i noticed was that is FAST amazingly so , This is a duel core tosh laptop running Ubuntu with all the nonsense not in use removed and Firefox was pretty quick but Chrome is on another level ITS WOW FAST.

I love it so much i wish it had all Gestures and i wish it had stumbleupon and delicious plugins and that is why i still resort to firefox pretty often but on the whole WOW.

Yeah there are a few formatting issues and such like but i am very impressed and happy with it.

As soon as i get a blank dvd/cd i am swapping out this hard drive and putting in my scorpio 160gb super fast drive in here and installing Karmic koala with ext 4 and new grub 2 and by all reports that should run also pretty dam fast. And as Linux is so ace one simple command created a script that logged all the packages and programs i have on here now and as soon as Karmic is running another simple command and it will load that script from an ftp site and that install all programs i currently have on here, then i copy over the home folder and all my personal settings will magically re appear.

Last time i did this i issued said command in bash (terminal) and went to make tea and have a shower by the time i was dressed i had everything i had one hour before on an entirely new OS



Now its time for the gym for a few hours and a nice swim

P.S has anyone got a spare unlocked or Vodafone mobile phone i could buy/borrow for a little while please?
