Finally done downloading

I got all my ISO images downloaded for Mandrake 9.2. Phew. I thought they had an rsync server for them, that would have made things easier, I'd rather have rsync'd the 9.1 images. Oh well.

Fixed a font issue

Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:19 pm)

I fixed a font issue (in this blogging suite) that's been bothering me for a while now, I finally traced it down to a CSS directive that was reducing the space between letters, it was making things a bit too close together for my taste. Words with a lower-case 'r' next to an 'n' looked like the single letter 'm'. That really bothered me.

Updated home page

For those of you who make this your first visit to my site (I don't blame you—the rest of the site doesn't change that much), I have updated a few things on my homepage. So go check it out.

I added some new pictures, a couple of my cats, and one of me (since I don't have one anywhere else on this site). I also added my Root Beer Collection, 36 bottles so far. Pretty darn respectable, really.

New mouse

I got a new mouse today at work, it's about time I said something, mine's been having trouble for quite a while now. It's not that it's dirty either. I've been using the same mouse since wheel-mice came out, and it was just time for an upgrade. Heck, it was only $20 anyway. My new one's optical. Not as nice as the one I have at home, but certainly good enough for me to work on. I'll have to adjust my mouse-movement speed in Linux, though, it just goes too fast...

Software upgrade woes

Well, it figures.... Just as I get my work desktop upgraded, they come out with a new version. So now I'm downloading Mandrake 9.2. I really wish Ximian would support it, I love their desktop look.
