Journal: good news one and all

Journal by marine_recon
at long last a computer has been found to take the role of always on, remote access, super, ultra, learn to use linux box. the idea is pretty cool, it lets us mere mortals learn the basics without having to admin a computer and invaribly screw things up. not fun. anyway, the whole thing is supposted to be tucked away in the tech center and all us techs will have access to it. someday this might be written using linux. well its been done, but knoppix GUI dosnt really count. really. i watched Dan compile a new version of gentoo just for this ocassion, and i must admit, it is very impressive to see someone pull an entire operating system together in two hours, and even cooler, its fully customised to what we need. someday, someday i can do that.

Journal: I'm an idiot

Journal by marine_recon
It's incredible how wonderful my friends are. I leave myself signed on to /. on a public computer once AGAIN and they STILL haven't destroyed my karma! I owe them so much, because they are so incredible. Unfortunately, I am a total idiot who continues to not learn from his mistakes. I need to work on that, but with my skull being as thick as it is, it doesn't seem like it might happen anytime soon. Damn. Well, hopefully someday, maybe even before my reputation is totally destroyed for all eternity, I will learn. I can only hope.
