New PowerBook Hard Drive

I just got my replacement hard drive from the apple store for my powerbook yesterday. I just did a fresh install on a fresh partition. surprisingly I was able to restore all of my apps and configurations before I left for the mix that same night. the only thing that I wasn’t able to install was MySQL which I did today. My PowerBook is making me proud again. It is running so much faster and smoother now. I’m glad that I got that new Hard Drive.

SUSE Linux 10

I’ve been playing around with SUSE 10 for about a week now, and I’m starting to get a little more familiar with the OS than I was before. I’m still pretty lost, but I’m making some improvements. Today I found how much easier life is with YaST.  I’ve been having a really hard time compiling and installing from source code.  Just when I was about to giveup I realized that yast could do all of that for me.  of course installing Apache, PHP, and MySQL from yast kind of defeats the purpose of using this linux box to ‘learn’ how to do that stuff.  but it work, so what the hell.

Irritating People

Some people just irritate the hell out of me!

Nissan concept Terranaut

This is the coolest Concept car from Nissan or anyone for that matter, that I’ve seen in a while. If I were rich, I would buy this. The only thing I would change is I would have the back ‘lab’ area loaded with serious computing power, and a WiMax or WiFibre link.

MacBook Pro core duo

My PowerBook G4 is on its last leg. This computer has taken me pretty far, and I owe a lot to it. this G4 has helped me make a clean switch to mac. since switching, I’ve even blown away my windows laptop for a SUSE linux 10 system.
well my powerbook isn’t exactly ‘dead’ yet. but the hard drive is about to die. I’m getting it replaced by apple care on saturday. However, this does strengthen my rationale to put the cash down for a new MacBook Pro asap. I’m even thinking of going all out and getting a G5 quad at the same time. worked out my budget and everything today at work.

Seriously, I do love this PowerBook. I don’t think that I could even part with it after an upgrade. I have a hard time parting with my hardware after I’ve upgraded and moved on. my Dell Inspiron is now a Linux box, and my PowerBook will most likely be my stay-at-home desktop system, while my MacBook Pro will be my workhorse. We’ll see how this whole upgrade process goes.

Ambition

“Ambition is the last refuge of the failure.”
-Oscar wild

Ok, I was watching ‘CSI’ tonight and at the very end of the show Grism says that ‘Ambition is the last refuge of failure.’ This stuck out to me as a very wise and insightful quote. however, it was slightly miss-quoted (refuge of THE failure).

Valentines day

Valentines day is by far the worst holiday that I can think of. Valentines day is not a good reason for ‘romance.’ The best thing about romance in that its spontaneous and unpredictable. Romance on Valentine’s Day is about as predicable as you can get. So where the fun in Valentine’s Day? there is none. No guy wants to be expected to make a huge romantic gesture on a specific day just because of some commercialized holiday. There’s way too much pressure to make a big deal out of it. When in reality its virtually impossible to surprise anyone on this day. The only reason women want their boyfriend or husbands to do anything on Valentine’s day is because all of their friends are getting things and doing things and they don’t want to feel left out, or un-speciall on that day. I think its an over commercialized and insignificant holiday.

Undefined v 0.3

Ok this is the official release of ‘UNDEFINED V 0.3′. I don’t know why its taken me so long to design a blog of my own. I’ve been working professionally as a web developer / programmer for a few years now and I’ve never even gotten around to making a blog. sure I use myspace to keep in touch with my (less computer literate) friends. for some reason the average user doesn’t use the internet and email as a regular form of communication as often as you would think.

It seems to me like there’s a miss-conception that email is solely for spreading chain letters and spam. But for some odd reason the average user doesn’t feel threatened by myspace. so I end up having to default to myspace messages and comments to keep in touch with a certain demigraphic of friends.

I’m not even sure what this blog is going to be used for. probably just to post and share ideas, discoveries, and code that I develop. enjoy.
Mahalo for stopping by.

Updated Header

I just updated my blog header. this is just a header that I made for a layout that I created at work. nothing wrong with recycling graphics. I guess this is an “Aqua” header since I used the apple OS X aqua desktop as a starting point for the graphics. Thanks Apple. I think I’ve been getting a lot of my inspiration from apple lately. can’t blame me. Apple has been pretty smooth as far as their design.

Where has everyone gone
People fade away with no goodbye
you don’t see me, and now so lost
i battle this war here in my head
in circles, constantly consuming
these wondering dreams of nowhere
these hollow thoughts of where to go
the days have past that pacify my need
the hunger for time when we were close
it all has gone in the shadows of yesterday.
