All grown up ...

Posted 12-03-2006 at 07:21 PM by comprookie2000

I made it to the 30's or 40's but now at 51 I have reverted to an earlier age.

My first entry!

Ok - everyone don't get all choked up, now.

I've been spending more time immersed in my installation of Slackware 11, more so than Windows XP or the other distros listed in my info.

I'm fascinated. My wife is a little aggravated - since the housework suffers a little.

Installation of windows, linux

Posted 12-02-2006 at 01:14 AM by ruhler

My hard drive a few weeks ago started making this awful grinding noise. Its replacement showed up in the mail the other day, so I went about installing windows and linux.

The Windows installation was from the restore cd that came with my dell, which is two and a half years old now. The installation took (just windows and updates, no apps):

2 hours
6 reboots
83 windows updates
3 message boxes telling me to go to some website because otherwise...
