Pondering the Imponderable

Ya know, when you're just coming home from a brief (and expensive) vacation, few people would say, "I'd love to dust my box and install the new Slackware." I'm one of those people. No, I am not sane. The good news is that I've finally gotten everything back to normal. I downloaded, compiled, and installed the latest versions of digiKam (digital camera software), amaroK (audio player), and Kaffeine (xine multimedia player front end). All three have some very slick features. I'm going to have to whip up reviews for them all. For now, I'll just say this: check them out.

I also discovered that Slackware ISOs download VERY quickly at a full 2 Mbps. And yes, I giggled like a schoolgirl.

NFL Week #2 Final

Thanks to some last minute "heroics" by the Redskins, I ended up 8-8 for the week while Eeyore is 9-7. Year-to-date, that makes me 18-14 (.563) while she is 16-16 (.500). No confirmation on whether we would have been beaten by "Earl, the NFL-picking monkey".

Just to show you what a Lions fan I am, when I was in Michigan this weekend, I got a Lions alternate jersey, even as their wholloping at the hands of the Bears was coming to an end. It's (the jersey) an early Christmas present from my parents. It was even 20% off. The number on it is 34 for the Lions running back, Kevin Jones. Hopefully the coaching staff will remember that he's on the team next time.
