?And you are asking what the fuck are you talking about? Well I am talking about this article from The Registar. Ok a four legged chicken you can problably deal with that, but, why the hell would it have an extra anus. And if it did why the hell would it kill it. Seems to me getting all that crap out of you could only be a good thing . What the hell do I know?


Ah, A Good, Hard Storm.

Posted: October 29, 2006 in Science, Weather

Sorry all I have not been around due to random power outages and/or internet. We had an impresive storm here in New England, USA. Boats breaking free and lodging themselves tight and hard upon the beachs and breakwaters. Walking the dog through the woods you could here the gusts of wind come with low growls rapidly building to loud howls as the gusts came by you. Impressive. I love this stuff. If you have read the Perfect Storm you will know what I mean. I have seen many a storm like this and it never fails to amaze me. I have been out on a fishing boat. I have seen weather like the Perfect Storm. I have heard the distress calls on the radio as fishermen´s boats are going down. Of fishermen being smashed to pieces by waves crashing over the gunnel’s and throwing men up against the bulwarks and paralyzing them. Maybe I am nuts but I find these storms amazing and wonderous.

Any way that is why I have not been able to blog. I have tons of email and rss feads to read so I had better get to it.

Firefox 2 has now been released into the wild for our general consumption. This is the official version, no more release canidates. If your Fedora Core downloads are taking to long, put them on pause and download Firefox 2. Unpack it and browse with confidence while your Fedora Core 6 completes. Good day for all.

Update:  I am not at all impressed.  I have been having a horrible time with this release on Fedora Core 5 and 6 64 bit version running the 32 bit version of Firefox 2.  Not a happy consumer.  Although I have not taken the time to remove all the extensions and themes I have running but still I would have expected more from our friends at Mozilla. Bah hummbug.

You Are 84% Open Minded

You are so open minded that your brain may have fallen out!
Well, not really. But you may be confused on where you stand.
You don’t have a judgemental bone in your body, and you’re very accepting.
You enjoy the best of every life philosophy, even if you sometimes contradict yourself.

How Open Minded Are You?

Yes Fedora Core has released Core 6 for general consumption. I have tried their release candidates coming up to this release with mixed results. Hopefully they have managed to get most of the bugs out of it because I am about the take the plunge head first. Get your copies while you can. I will have my torrent running full speed.
I have to say the final product looks really good so far. I will let you know more in the coming days.

You will swallow some tacks. You are a little weird, maybe not so
much in a good way. Buy a yellow tie and wear it on your head.

It is about time someone got there act together and released this for linux. I am stuck with flash player 7 in only a 32 bit browser no 64 bit support. I still cannot see any support mentioned for a 64 bit Linux operating system but it is a start. So go get it what are you still doing here.
