This is post 100 and…

July 29, 2009

Can’t believe we’re finally at the 100th post. I also can’t believe I started this blog on November 29, 2008. Has anything really changed all that much? Yes. I’ve finally started “liking” GNOME (I like the Dust theme). A tweaked GNOME on CentOS (my new distro of choice), and I’m good to go. Plus, I can’t believe my rant back in January got 28 comments.

I’ve got a new (well not quite) laptop!

July 28, 2009

Yesterday I’ve obtained an IBM ThinkPad 600X. This paticular one has a Pentium III 650, 128MB of RAM, a 12GB hard drive, and a Linksys PCMCIA 802.11G card. Sadly, though, the battery doesn’t seem to work (it’s a known defect with 600 series ThinkPads), and the AC adapter doesn’t seem to want to work (and is rather flaky when it does). I’ve been thinking of purchasing a new AC adapter for it, and using it for something.
