Fuck upgrading… viva la reinstallation!

I made a post a while back about how I upgraded my parents’ laptop from Xubuntu 9.04 to 10.04.  It went well.  But since I upgraded, I didn’t get to take advantage of the vast improvements in boot times that came along with the newest version.  Also, I didn’t get my chance to try setting […]

Peer pressure: All the cool kids are wearing plastic bags on their heads.

These are some things.  Not a few of my favorite things, but just some things I know. My parents’ 18 year old orange cat took over my new guitar’s case within a time span of five seconds I like big butts and I can not lie I’m sleepy I wish my parents were millionaires On […]

Out with the old…

Well, I finally got around to checking out my new laserjet printer today.  And I didn’t know this… but “LaserJet” is a trademark owned by Hewlett Packard.  Meh. Well xerox my kleenex! So far I’ve printed only a test page from Ubuntu and a test page from Windows XP, but they look good.  Now, if […]

In Praise of Chef Boyardee

Yes, my slop is being nuked in the microwave as we speak!  IT was either that or Wendy’s.  Not healthy, but flavourful.  I’m getting plenty of “exercise” at work lately.  So I guess I can claim that I’m burning off the fat pretty fast. So on to things that aren’t high-sodium, high-fat, low-nutrient meals.  Well […]

Hurtin’ for Geek Cred

As I have bitched about below, I had a printer die on me recently.  The new one is on the way, but since I had to shell out a good $400 for it, my credit card was put damn near its limit. My ISP wasn’t able to bill the card, so I had to write […]

Attention: Complaint Department

Well, bluddy ell. I heard on the weather today that the atmosphere above Calgary was unstable.  No shit.  When I got out of work, it was freezing.  When I rode the train through to downtown, it was a fucking blizzard.  When I got downtown there was no freezing rain but it was about as windy […]

Printers Through Windows

I was all set to get lots of stuff done today.  I still have a ton of music to Mikeify.  I got another album by Peter Hammill today, so I was going to do that one and put it on the iPod.  I ordered his 80s albums last week from, and every single one […]

Nice words that aren’t “Happy Birthday”

Okay, printer manufacturers, I’ve got you in my sights. FUCK YOU.  FUCK YOU ALL. Greedy, avaricious, gluttonous scum-sucking lowlifes all of you! I’m never buying an inkjet printer again.  For the amount of sheer hassle I get, for the wasted money spent on ink and paper when things fuck up, for having to shell out […]
