Hello ubuntu

I am currently coming live from ubuntu.* I'm not very used to ubuntu, yet, but it's good fun.

For those who are currently looking at me going O_o, ubuntu is an operating system by Linux. There are 3 main operating systems: Windows, Apple and Linux. Each do different versions of things, which is why you can get Windows 98, XP, XP Media Centre, Vista etc. I'm currently using Linux's Ubuntu. I've partitioned off some of my hard drive on my laptop so I can run both XP and Ubuntu (but obviously not use both at the same time!) If you want to have a look at it, google 'ubuntu' and look at pics, or even look at some videos of it on youtube. For the really cool stuff look on youtube for ubuntu beryl. Beryl is a pack you can add and well... its SO cool.

I currently have set my windows so they bend when I move them, which is rather cool! I've also been looking at great desktops but I'm not sure which one I like best yet. Also need to go have a faff around on Open Office and play with the alternative fonts on there. I'm currently just surfing the web and chatting to people on Pidgin, the ubuntu version of MSN.

*I don't know if it's actually 'ubuntu' or 'Ubuntu'. I think it's 'Ubuntu' but so many things say 'ubuntu' because it just looks slightly better, especially on the desktops... hence the random swapping between both versions in this.

I'm just relaxing now after a long rehearsal today, and a Golden Wedding Anniversary meal last night. I'll write about these later, and I'll try and remember to write about my trips to London that I've still not written about. Shame on me.

I like the customisability of OpenOffice and pidgin works pretty much as well as the client I used in Windows. But I really REALLY miss the way Windows seemed to know what I wanted when I clicked on an icon, and had help manuals in basic English. And the number of programs that either don't work in Ubuntu or require extra installation and faffing about make me wish I had a copy of Windows to reinstall. Keep your computer knowledge/geeks close at hand.

I'll keep that in mind. From what I've seen of Ubuntu, I like it, but then I've not had to do anything technical really, cause my brother's been doing that! I like how I can have both on here. It's annoying but helpful to be able to swap between the two, because most people use Windows so it's very handy to know all the Windows stuff and keep using it, rather than just scrapping it completely or something. Kinda makes me wish there were more compatible programs though.

re: what you said about the Christian guy: That is indeed very funny XD I love when something like that happens, when the name is in complete oposition to the person behind it *gg*

*giggles* yes, it is funny. I have a picture with him somewhere, but you can't see the height difference cause he knelt down cause my sister was there too! What I'm waiting for though is a person called Paul Small/Little etc. The name Paul is supposed to mean small (according to certain websites we frequented during Key Skills in school!)

Sorry about deleting the other comment, just a privacy thing there. It's a long story that I won't go into. I could have messaged you, but that would have required me to quote all your comment anyway!

Oh, I didn't know that Paul means little, too XD
When the Handball championship was a while back, I had the weird urge to write Klein/Klien slash... luckily that urge left again... the logistics would have been difficult XD

*shrugs* I don't mind that XD

According to www.babynames.com it does! Paul was most annoyed to discover that.

There are no boundaries to fic. You should write it. I need to write more, but I keep running out of time/ideas/inclination! Besides, seem to be doing more proofing than writing at the moment.

Poor Paul XD

I have sooooo many works-in-progress at the moment that I really need to finish some before I start new ones XD But yeah, maybe one day, if my interest in handball stays XD

Awws, I know the feeling. I have odd bits of fic here and there that I really should do something with!

Not really seen a lot of handball, seeing as we don't get it here but it looked kind of fun on the Olympics!

Most of the fics I have lying around are like 3.000+ words stumbs and really should be finished *sighs* Hopefully I can get some done before the new season starts and new bunnies are jumping at me XD

It's fun because there really is lots going on, I like that, better than football.

Wow. I have one thats over 30,000 words, but other than that, the rest are like 200 words! Good luck with getting them finished though. If you want a proof, let me know :)

Oooh really? I can't stand football so I might like handball XD
