OSX 10.5 "Leopard" now up and running on my mac mini. User 'catttitude' is now primary user on her mac mini. Xubuntu now upgraded to 8.04. DVD-RW installed to replace my failing CD/RW drive in my XP/linux dual-boot box. Failing CD/RW relegated to an external enclosure. Monitor 'riser' installed on my desk (now that I don't have a 150-lb 22" CRT):

Daughter woke me up at 0400: "Daddy, I woke up...in the middle of the night!" My wife got out of bed to tuck her back in, but I've been awake ever since. Revisiting some old friends on Space Opera and Space Out and making some new ones. For example - I have an 'extras' download of Poledouris' Starship Troopers but with no track listing and it being in such disarray, I never listen to it. Being presented this way is much nicer. It just works, and the transition between "Whiskey Outpost Rescue" and "Nesmith And Mathazar" make it all the more delightful.

I'll be making pancakes for breakfast (provided I can stay awake that long - I stayed awake in part due to being stopped up, and my antihistamine just kicked in, dragging me down with it). I've been simmering my dad's recipe homemade syrup on the stove for nearly two hours. It should be good and thick by the time it's ready.

The boy woke up and started playing his Lego Star Wars game. I think I'll catch up with him and try to complete a companion piece to my steampunk open-cockpit plane I built a couple of weeks back.

Good times.

Much nicer setup...now all catttitude needs is a flat panel.

Tell her I love her wallpaper. Mmmmm! Naveen Andrews is so yummy!

Well, I thought she was going to respond to this herself (and she may yet) but she no longer gets on the computer any more on the weekends, citing being on them all day at work...however, I haven't seen her reply to my blog in over a week.

You women move in mysterious ways!

Mmm, homemade syrup? Nice. :)

Speaking of breakfast, I need to get some...

Is that two Mac minis stacked on top of one another, one running Ubuntu, the other OS X 10.5? And are you running 10.5.2 or just 10.5?

If you say he's, "yummy" you go dude. I don't wanna lick him, but you sure the hell can!

Xubuntu 8.04 -- if you're both a fan of XFCE and OS X, I would highly recommend taking DreamLinux for a ride someday.

A fucking linux site which uses flash as its homepage? Oh hell no. IF I CAN'T READ THEIR PAGE NATIVELY THEIR NOT GOING THE SAME DIRECTION I AM.

I want my linux distro to be fast, yet functional, which is why I use XFCE. If I wanted eye-candy and blaot, I'd use KDE or Gnome....or apparently DreamLinux and their java-laden flash homepage!

He who judges without trying (and can't spell bloat) doesn't deserve to be enlightened anyway.

Thanks dude. And really, isn't she worth it? I like to think so.
