I have about two years worth of updates to perform now...
I upgraded little girls computer from an AMD 1.1GHz to an Intel 1.6GHz P4 and increased her memory (she's the only one running Windows in the house). Since all the cases were identical, it was effortless. drax0r and I sure love our Antec cases. I added all the extra optical drives to the old case (minus only a power supply and 2100 memory) as a gift for onthetrails who wanted a play box for installing different operating systems on.
I also got Joomla working at work today - that also was much more arduous than it would first appear. While apt-get is certainly easier in the short-term, compiling everything yourself is usually more stable. Until you update, of course. I was thrilled to see that vmware's 'auto configuration' of kernel libraries is working, which made the transition to 8.10 nearly a dream. Intrepid was the easiest ubuntu upgrade yet!
And...I've seen a LOT of movies this past week. Now that the year is at a close, let's take a vote!
What was your favorite movie of 2008
