Lovin’ Linux Part 2

by Mitch on 22/03/2004

On my last computer I had way too many hardware issues to run Linux successfully, it just became a nightmare. I had a Matrox Parhelia which just caused nightmares in trying to get the second monitor to work, not to mention the fact there is very little support for the Soundblaster Audigy. The point to this story is that I am back in Linux and couldn’t be happier. I am currently running Red Hat 9.0 with an unmodified kernel (not quit that experienced yet), but I am learning a lot. It feels good not to have to look at Windows too often and also provides me with a good platform for my programming.

I have also made a lot of updates to my Deviant Art Portfolio, which has been a lot of fun. I’ve moved my sketch album over to there and I might close it down so that I don’t need to have both. The drawing I did of “Boo” from Megatokyo got a few good reviews, so I also added my lesser drawings. They are pretty bad, but it’s all stuff I would like feedback on.

Right now I don’t know what projects are going ahead and what ones aren’t. I think that I need to take a day to sit down and prioritize them all and decide which ones to keep and which ones to scrap. All of my projects mean so much to me, I think I would die if I had to delete any of them, but sometimes these things happen.

    I can sympathize with you on deciding what projects to keep and which to dispose of. Every day it’s this huge dilema about stuff I want to keep and stuff I know I have to get rid of. Everything on this machine is like a child to me.

    Note to self – go to Deviant art and look at the new stuff soon.

    Amen to that, I find it almost impossible to delete files, especially designs, I have created. I hoard them all, against the chance that I might find a use for them one day.

    Every now and then a hard drive failure solves my problem though, and purges my digital soul :)
