Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus

To all ye Welsh peoples, sheep and peoples who wished ye were Welsh

Happy St David's Day!

Can't actually remember a lot about it at the moment, but I was greeted with several links to information about Wales and St David when I came online this morning. For info on St David click here. If learning Welsh is more your thing, you'll find info on that here or you could try Cerys's Welsh Cakes mmm. Failing that, there's always Welsh TV programmes!

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.
