Holy Whackalicious! I was going through the log of my feed subscribers for this blog and I found one subscriber using Lynx!!! For those who don’t know, Lynx is a completely text based browser and runs primarily on Linux. It does have ports for Windows and Mac though. You can find more info for it on http://lynx.browser.org.
In other news, I went home late last night – very late, didn’t sleep well and now I feel completely out of sync. It’s like my mind is working faster than my body. It feels weird. You take a step and you realise that your feet is not there yet but your brain has already decided to take another step – am I making any sense?
The replies didn’t come in yesterday also. I feel like a telephone operator. I have called the dude up so many times that I think I know his number by heart now (and if you know me remotely, you will realise that this is a BIG achievement). I hope to end this by today, one way or the other.
Pownce is said to go public by afternoon today and I want to be onto it. When I first joined there, it looked like another Twitter clone with the only USP being the ability to send files to friends, like you can’t do that with email or the messengers already, I thought, and happily abstained from using the service. I was reading up on all the planned upgrades to the service today and it seems quite interesting. I particularly like the option of being able to import friends from FB, Twitter and a few other social networks. That should help. I also like their client, which runs on Adobe AIR.
I want to play with KDE 4.0, I have been reading about it, and I know it’s far from stable but I like to get my kicks from time to time. I am planning to run it on OpenSUSE or Fedora. Definitely not on Ubuntu. I wonder why people like Ubuntu… it’s so non Linux-like, so much like Windows, very rigid and hard to truly customise.
I uploaded the snaps I took in the mosque and others onto Picasa, so you can look em up in the random pics album.
Looking to play with the HCL UMPCs. The Y-Series catches my fancy. I hope the finishing is not as bad as it looks in the snaps – cheap plastic type with wobbly keys. I hope to get my hands on the ASUS EEE PC too… been reading so much about it that it feels like I know everything there is to know about it and all I have to do is feel the PC (no pun intended).
Am I the only one who is starting to find these HDFC system upgrade messages irritating. I know its going down on the 25th and I have it marked on my Google calander, my desktop notes, my calander in the cubicle, tattooed on my hand and what not! Gimmie a break people and stop spamming my email, my phone and the annoying popups when I use netbanking… Sheesh.
Time to read His Dark Materials till the replies come in… adios people!
