I have Dora back!

Woot! This means I have shiny Linux back and my SD slot, among other things. I fixed the sound and the public key that kept the updates from updating today, so all was well. This would have happened earlier, but I was lazy and didn't really care thanks to having Yoshi to supplement the sound.

Also, I logged out of Pidgin on Yoshi and into Pidgin in Dora simultaneously, forgetting that Dora is lightning fast in Linux. As a result, my AIM account has been disabled for disconnecting and reconnecting too frequently. Please wait at least ten minutes and try again.

I have. At least three times. Grr.

In other news, playing tech support for my family is so much fun. Not. I'm tempted to sneak into everyone's computers in the night and install Linux on their boxes. Seriously, the temptation is rising. Or I could give them Linux install CDs for their birthdays. Hmmmm.

If you really want to start them off simple, check out ReactOS. Apparently free win-compatible. Owise, ubuntu is a nice safe bet, as longa s you install the right software. They market it as "Linux for human beings", so i guess it's boring for the rest of us ;)

Linux for human beings? I was wondering what this steel heart was doing inside me.
