My website:
On my website I have my CV, more importantly, I have
written about why I use Linux and especially Ubuntu as my desktop.
I am also in the process of writing about how I designed the website with GIMP, HTML5 and php.
I also hope to write about My diabetes type 2.

Upgrade to Natty Narwhal aka Ubuntu 11.04

Posted 06-30-2011 at 07:42 AM by bhupendra

The upgrade to Natty did go smoothly, but Unity
was broken. Had to do a fresh install. Everything
works now. There has been a lot of controversy
regarding Ubuntu's move to Unity. As far as I am concerned,
it does not make much difference whether it is Gnome 3.0 or
Unity, so long as it works. Even KDE is good. Once you get
familiarized however the desktop is organized matters less so long as it is Linux.

Kernels & version numbers.

On The Road - 3

Posted 06-30-2011 at 01:45 AM by Hevithan

This is a little story about drinking and driving, it was scary, it was stupid, and it is a mistake I will never repeat.

Shaun, our friend James, and I, where on the road hitching as usual. We where on a little used highway that runs through the redwoods, in the pouring rain. Cars are driving by at a steady enough rate for a road of it's size, But no one wants to pick up 3 soaked people with 3 large, and equally as soaked, backpacks so we had been there awhile.

Facebook is an awkward place. Really, it is. It's a place where all the disparate facets of my life come together. Family, co-workers. Computers, grandmothers. Religion, science. Intelligence...well, I'll leave that one open to interpretation =)

Recently I got back in contact over facebook with a long lost friend from my childhood. As weeks went on, we commented on each other's posts, intrigued by the serious difference between the remembered friend and the new-found friend....
