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, which tell me who I am and where I belong in the world. I relate to objects as if they are alive, but as things with identities and properties all of their own, not as something human-like. Culturally I'm from a California Okie background. Crochet or otherwise create constantly, write poetry and paint when I can. Proud member of the developmental disability self-advocacy movement. I care a lot more about being a human being than I care about what categories I fit into.

  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. ;-)
