I know I have been silent for some time now. It’s just that it’s better to be silent than to say something useless sometimes.
A few things to report today, though. First and foremost, on Sunday I started the day having a tough issue with my computer. I have Linux installed and Windows 98 as my chatting machine. However, I wanted to make some updates, but Windows 98 is not really supported by Microsoft any more. So, after a long discussion and many blue screens on my Windows 98, I decided to sell my soul and install Windows XP instead.
So far so good, right? Not really! I’ve installed it but forgot to turn on my firewall before starting the installation. Result: my computer was compromised even before I actually started it. Lots of fun! I turned on the firewall and installed everything again. This time it worked! I installed all the service packs and it seemed to work fine… Right?
Not really… Suddenly I get a message saying that I’m running out of disk space! Mind you that I only installed Windows XP, the service packs, and browse the internet for a little while. The partition that I had for windows was pretty small, 4GB, but it was 4GB anyway! It should fit more than just windows and its service packs!!! That’s just ridiculous!
So, after all these fights (and of course losing my dual boot in the process, so I couldn’t even log on to my Linux) I decided to do the unthinkable: I bought a PowerBook G4! Crazy, huh? Well, I’m having fun! It’s just very cool and neat looking. I’m on my couch right now typing this with it on my lap.
But I spent even more money on Sunday. I bought the furniture that was left: a coffee table, two end tables and a bedroom set.
Now that I’m poor, I think I should eat something. It was a tough day at work.. And I’m going to have some tough weeks ahead!
