Sore obliques

Because I'm sick of having to worry about rootkits and so on, I've been fiddling with getting Xubuntu running on my laptop. It's actually been no problem at all on the whole, and most of my old applications that I don't currently have Unix equivalents too seem to be running just fine under Wine. I just have to find my Photoshop CD so I can install CS (my Windows boxes are running CS2 which doesn't run under Wine yet)…

I couldn't sleep again last night because of the trains. I'm going to be here until the end of the schoolyear I think, but how wonderful it would be to be an old man with a guitar in the country… One day soon I hope. Well, the “old” part I'll have to wait for time to provide, but the rest I can bring about through my own actions.

You know, I can't say that one on level making the commitment to spend some extended time single isn't a little miserable simply because I like intimate human contact, but it's been really good for me in terms of stepping back, looking at past relationships and understanding what was good and what wasn't, and thinking about myself in clearer terms and understanding what I want in life. And I think that what I want in life is largely to be left alone and create art. Not that I'm not perfectly happy to blabber on endlessly, but I think I'd like art to speak for me instead of words on a computer screen one day.

Not that there's not art to words, even on a computer screen. Even when you speak in Assembly.

Anyway, time to run upstairs to check on a file transfer…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
