Back, and Posting Again!
The title says it all, doesn’t it. Still at work on the distro. I have it slightly more permanently installed for the moment on an old Pentium 4 (!) box, since I’m thinking that’s the low-bar I’m going to shoot for. It boots and runs well off of a thumb drive on a regular, BIOS-based PC now, but I’m still having weird intermittent issues with it booting off of the...
DayZ, Cyberpunk Distro, and Other Things.
First, I intentionally capitilized “other things.” It’s supposed to be dramatic. Deal with it. You might want to read most of it in the voice of Patrick Stewart, but the Other Things part should be read by Keith David. So, I started playing DayZ the other day with a friend. After a few false starts, some minor issues, and an accidental PVP killing (sorry, whoever you were,...
Sabbatical, Break, etc.
Since my plate is currently overflowing, I’m going to have to take something of a sabbatical from working on the Cyberpunk Distro. Don’t worry, this does NOT mean the project is dead; far from it. It’s still very much on my mind and is something I plan on completing by 2013, but right this moment it simply isn’t possible for me to work on it with any frequency. I will...
HTC Shift issues.
Well, first of all it’s in Italian. Since I don’t speak italian…that is sort of a problem. I’ve reinstalled Windows Vista and it is now in English. The problem, of course, is that I don’t currently have AT&T (I have Sprint), so I cannot simply liberate the device, HardSPL, etc., and install a new (English) rom. So I’m currently losing. Never fear, I...
So, I was just sorta making my way ‘round the net, and I discovered an awesome utility that allows someone to boot from a USB drive even if the BIOS doesn’t support it. It’s awesome. It’s amazing. So I’m about to try booting Google’s Chrome OS on an ancient IBM x31. Let’s see what happens.
Saw the Avengers, bought an HTC Shift
The title pretty much sums it up. I picked up an HTC Shift UMPC. Why? Because Linux! Also, go see the Avengers. It cost me 21 dollars for tickets, and I honestly would’ve paid more. It was a phenomenal movie. Back to lame schoolwork, I guess. Edit: I wouldn’t have paid more. Figure of speech. Honestly? 21 bucks is a ripoff. Still, great movie.
Well, it’s unfortunate, but it looks like the display card on the iMac has decided to commit suicide, I guess. Both windows 7 and OS X are experiencing random screens of death, and the display is fizzing out on each and turning grey, so….yeah. Well, on a bright note the Macbook Pro appears to be fine. I’ve had the iMac for less then a year, and I most certainly picked up the...
Morrowind! And Cyberpunk 2020! And Things! (Also,...
Well, I started playing Morrowind again. I used to own physical copies of all these games, now all I have is digital ones. I’m a little sad about that. However, I have the games, and in the grand scheme of things, that’s really all that matters. I can’t install a manual on a laptop. Anyway, I installed the Morrowind Overhaul Graphics and Sound thingamajig, and it makes the...
Linux! and other stuff
Well, that’s what I should be doing. Instead, I’m on tumblr, IRC, and surfing the net listening to some Icon of Coil. I’ve done a bit more work on that design idea for a cyberpunk linux distro. Since I’ve been failing to give updates in /Projects on the forums I’ll give an update here, then copypasta it onto the forums later. The original idea was to use Ubuntu...
