Stupid WindowBlinds!

Oh man. I am tired. And I bet that you are wondering why I am tired. You're not? Oh, well I guess that I won't tell you than. No big deal. I'll live, you'll live, and assorted kegs of alcohol will live. It's a Win/Win/Get Wasted situation.
OK...what am I rambling on about today? Well, to start off, I hate WindowBlinds. It makes your system crawl on it's knees (a slight exageration) and it almost screwed up my PC, even though it was probably my fault. I still blame WindowBlinds. I was trying to install a theme, and then my whole desktop went black. I could see my icons, and the little Windows logo where the start button would be. I was contemplating , logging out, making a new account, and transferring all of my files, but I figured that I should take a stab in the dark. Literally. So I right-clicked on my desktop and low-and-behold, the Right-Click menu was black. Lucky me. So I guessed where the "Properties" button would be, and I got it right. Then I guessed where the "Appearance" button would be in the window. I got it right! Finally, I guessed where you would select your theme, and I got it right. I really did get lucky. Or, maybe it's a sign that I use the computer too much. Nah.

I still haven't run that Ubuntu Live CD. But I have a good excuse! When I try to boot from CD on my working computer (the one that I am on), it stutters, and then just boots up Windows. Unforttunately, I am too lazy to look into this problem. It doesn't matter down here anyway, because it's the upstairs piece of crap that I need to install it on. Oh well.

That about sums up this edition of [insert title here]. Catch you later.

Sorry, I had to get that one out.

Ubuntu Wannabe


I am hoping to bring the Ubuntu distribution to me. After starting up my PC day after day, and day after day cursing Microsoft, I have decided that enough is enough. But, I'm not that brave. So I have decided to go ahead and install Ubuntu Linux on my old Pentium 3. When I say old, I mean old. It's processor clocks in at a breath-taking 700mhz! [take breath here]
Are you OK now? Good. And that is one of the main reasons that I have decided to take the leap to Ubuntu on that PC. I never use it because of it's disease ridden life. It is missing critical system files, and have around 26kb of storage space left. The C: drive is loaded with spyware, and the D: drive crashed. It takes 15 minutes to get onto my broadband internet, and google takes 6 minutes to load. Shutdown time is an astonishing 45 minutes. You know that you would wipe Windows and install Ubuntu as well.

Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, I cannot say that I have installed Ubuntu. I can't even say that I have tried out "The Beast". On the said pile-of-crap, booting from a CD is not available, so I can't test out the Live CD up there. And on the PC I am on now, my nice one, I don't feel like shutting down to test this sucka out. You can bet your intergrated graphics card that when I do get off my...lower portion, and install Ubuntu, I will most definitely write up a summary of my experiences. But for now, I have to go procrastinate!

DS Lite Owns My Life



As sad as it may be, the DS Lite is in complete control of my life. Would you like to know what makes this whole ordeal even worse? The fact that I don't own one. Yes, that is correct, I do not own a Nintendo DS Lite Handheld Gaming and Entertainment Device, yet I am at it's mercy. I crave for the said masterpiece.
Within a month, the date of my birth shall arise, and with it, may there be-ith a NDS. With Animal Crossing, of course. How I long to frolic with the animals, and perform un-natural things with them. No, not that! I was talking about giving them clothing, and chopping down their trees, you pervert!
Ah, well, I am doing my best to make my DS Lite fantasy a reality. For example, I made a background to voice my needs, so to speak. You can view my contraption HERE. And if that doesn't get the oh-so discreet message across, than hopefully the fact that I have strategically placed small, cut-out DS Lites around my humble abode.
Well, I expect that you shall all know if I get one or not, because if so, I will most-likely make a sole post containing characters not normally found in normal American dialect, such as
"‰", "Ð", or "Âœ". And keep this in mind. If I do not somehow acquire the said joyous savior, than Sea Lions will die...

OK, maybe not, but it sure did sound good!
