Some annoying things to work out for 2004


Here are some dang annoying things thats I HATE about using Linux that I need to fix for 2004

1. Firebird's scrollbard don't match anything else in my theme. They look like 4 year old Linux scrollbars.

2. How every thing I start (or launch) when in KDE, starts in the upper left hand corner of the screen. I like how Microsoft products remember the last location. I hate having to move my console window and browser out of the corner every freakin' time.

On a side note:

I finally got the stupid fortunes turned off when logging on in Slackware 9.1 YAY!

Happy New Year folks....

Well if you're going to start getting technical, you've both mispelled things.

Mispelled has one s :-D
... and you don't pluralize fortunes with an 's

Actually misspelled has two. Check the dictionary!

Even www.dictionary.com can't find mispell but finds misspelled.

And the fortunes, yeah your right thought on that when speaking about the application. Its a habit of mine to throw in a ' everyone once in a while.

Cheers.

Good ol' enemy territory

Former GDR and now "the old Europe". 30km in the East of Berlin. A short glance at a map would have answered your question as well
