I worked my butt off at the gym today. As it was a Sunday (and I was waiting for PHP to compile on gentoo) I did a full workout – cardio, weights, and then 20 lengths in the pool (first swim of the year). Sat in the sauna afterwards to recover. Two weeks in a row I’ve exercised 4x a week. Result!
Arrived home to find that everything had finished compiling and then sailed through the setup of Apache and MySQL to the point where I almost have an exact replica of the site at home. Just a few more glitches to sort out and then I can start redesigning without fear of it disappearing from the live world.
I also succumbed to temptation and motored up to Curry’s this morning to get this LG flat screen monitor. Here is a screenshot from the new monitor, with gentoo installed and fully functioning, with KDE on top, on my little Pentium III 450MHz processor:
The amazing thing is, it’s actually running quite fast. Way faster, in fact, than it did with Windows or Fedora. Gentoo is the best OS ever! (Thanks Steve And to think I nearly gave up during the week long compile…)
Oh – and one more thing. If you haven’t yet found StumbleUpon, you’re really missing out. If anything, it should encourage you to finally make the switch to Firefox. I have found some fantastic sites with this thing – it brings a whole new lease of life to surfing the web, and you don’t get any crap with it either. It’s brilliant.
