Wow has it been that long since I posted here? OK, my trusty Asus X101CH (see other blog post) has been a bit of a dog, granted a hard working loyal and faithful one but still a dog and after putting in a dismal performance when trying to play Minecraft the hunt was on for a replacement. Now I am a sucker for the "transformer" format but I am sticking 2 fingers up at Asus for making the X101 so rubish for Linux! So what next?

My Blog? :)

I didn't know I had one 'till I got an email this morning telling me I did. Cool!

So, I'm an XP refugee, having left the windows pain when they dropped support in May 2014. I got myself a new Linux machine from System 76 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed on it and haven't looked back since.

Yes, there was/is a learning curve for me but I'm very happy with my computer now. I'm learning stuff! I like that. I'm starting to write scripts in the BASH shell. I really...
