brain upgrade needed


wish i was smarter than my current brain enables then i wouldn't have needed to stay up until 2:30 in the morning just to get a !damn! php page customized correctly!

=)

/////// chain of events

4pm

her: hey, can you make it easier to switch graphics on suchandsuch page during edits? that way if we want to do 'this&that' after the fact it will be easier on us. can you do that? *smiles*

me: pffft, no problem.

///////

2:30am finished and going to bed.

Beer does not corrupt, it's an "enhancer"

Cool

could be since you use redhat 9 apt-get isn't really working that well for you. try using apt-get on debian and stick with woody =)

You just need the source code. Then all you gotta do is configure, make and make install.;D

urpmi -ay skull

"Package requires brain, continue?" [yes] (YES/no):



Ahh, the nice-eties of running mandrake...

For slack it'd be pretty easy as well:
# wget -c http://geek.brain.com/pub/slack81/devel/brain-2.6.tgz &&
# installpkg brain-2.6.tgz



Cool

Failed sanity check. Go figure.

Yeah I am kind of assuming that urpmi will actually work in this case - sorry Pcghost, should'a warned you: if this happened to be a MandrakeClub package for 9.0 more than likely you'd find the link broken

Don't think they've fixed it yet

Sometimes you need more than beer and drugs to "enhance" your brain. Maybe you need a vacation, or just a few days off.
