Positive Ape Index

Coop has a blog called Positive Ape Index! Check it out. You can also buy some of his art on his main site www.coopstuff.com . The art site is probably not safe for work due to cartoon sexuality.

Fedora Core 4 rocks but lacks slack

If Fedora Core 4 included the Bob Dobbs screensaver from Slackware fame, it would be the best Linux distribution I've seen yet. Alas, poor Bob Dobbs If I only knew enough about Linux to steal you from Slackware and install you onto my new system ( Oh and run you from KDE without having to go to a command line...) Speaking of KDE, I am firmly in the KDE camp when it comes to KDE verses Gnome (Does anyone care anymore? I have been away from Slashdot for a while.)

Gnome kicks ass mind you and is still the default for the Fedora Core distribution. I remember the days when you had to install and configure X windows from scratch and woe be unto you if you did not know the EXACT specifications of your video card and monitor. Gnome is an excellent desktop and I can see why many folks would prefer it over KDE so I am not a crusader in the holy war. I just like a lot of the apps that are packaged with KDE such as KStars, a nifty desktop planetarium.

Next stop on the Linux bandwagon: TuxRacer!

Finkbuilt Rules!!!

I just thought I would update this week with a link to Finkbuilt. This site has been featured on boingboing several times and usually features nifty diy projects such as how to make a concrete lightbulb. This week the feature project is a ukulele kit. Fun stuff.
