Automatix is Awesome

I recently set up a dual-boot environment (XP and Ubuntu) after spending six weeks experiencing Windows Vista.  Not a positive experience to say the least.  I’ll think about playing with it again in Q1 or Q2 of 2008.
I checked out Patrick’s article on the transition guide and just started trying Automatix.  This software is amazing!  Instead of manually pulling down items that I use regularly, for example VMWare Free Server, I can pull them down with this application.  I was blown away at how easy it was to use and for that matter install.  I just downloaded the deb file and double-clicked it.   I don’t mind being in the command-line, but this tool along with the built-in package manager are major steps in bringing Linux to the mainstream.

I bought a house…

Well I’m in the process of buying a house in Robbinsdale.  If everything goes through and there aren’t any snags I close two weeks from today.

I’m doing a bunch of work on the place right away.  Hopefully I can find a time for you all to come over, after I have my internet connection up of course…

For Sale

OK, Apple delivered. Therefore, here is what I have for sale:

  • Nokia N800 Internet Tablet in very good condition. Comes with all accessories and 2 2Gig SD cards (It has two slots). Also has a case I bought for it. Looking to get 250.00 but no reasonable offer refused.
  • 80 Gig iPod with Video (5.5G). This is less than three months old and kept in a case most of that time so it is pristine. Not sure what to ask yet on this but new it is $399.00. Once again, no reasonable offer refused.

Anyone interested in any of the above should contact me directly to discuss.
