And technical problems…


Right now I’m stuck in a linux console until a bunch of upgrades take place. I can’t decipher these WordPress dashboards when I’m in this text-based web browser. So I don’t dare try to moderate comments, because I think I’d probably get the wrong ones so we could all read about penis enlargement instead of the things we actually talk about here. My system’s fine, it’s just a pain in the butt to upgrade sometimes. Now I’ve got to go find the “publish” button in this wall of plaintext crud. Argh.


About Mel Baggs

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods. Crochet or otherwise create constantly and compulsively. Write poetry and paint when I can. Developmentally disabled, physically and cognitively disabled. I'm not really part of any online faction or another, even ones that claim me as a member. The thing in the world most important to me is having love and compassion for other people, although I don't always measure up to my own standards there by a longshot. And individual specific actions and situations and contexts matter a lot more to me than broadly-spoken abstract words and ideas about a topic. My father died in 2014 and that has changed my life a lot in ways that are still evolving, but I wear a lot of his clothes and hats every day since he died and have shown no sign of stopping soon.

  1. Go for Ubuntu — I just did Ubuntu’s upgrade to 8.04 (their new Long Term Support level), and it went quite well. On two different systems (one Kubuntu), I was able to do the while thing from within X Windows. It did take hours, and stalled for dialogs (inappropriately) a few times, but both systems finished the process with no coredumps, catch-22s, or Sudden Disassembly Events. ;-)
