iMacLinux

I fixed up the XFree86 4.0 howto, with the corrections <blanksout>somebody</blanksout> sent me. Thanks, Again for them.

Also up on iMacLinux is a new Howto written by me, dealing with mounting .iso images in Mac OS, and burning them using Adaptec Toast. Somebody was asking me about how to do this yesterday on IRC, so I decided to create a Howto.

As always, we are looking for help over at iMacLinux. Eventhough I am the current content maintainer, as you can see I'm very busy (and it's a big project) we need all the help we can get.

You don't need to be an expert to help, or have lots of free time. Beelers, who is helping with parts of iBookLinux.net, is very busy, still he manages to help out. I'm no expert either, with only about 2 1/2 years Linux experience, and about 6 years Mac OS experience.

Scouts

There has been a small update to the Troop 89 Website, mainly with updated dates and news.

This weekend I plan to work on my Family Life MB group project, which involves painting my sister's room. Cool. I want to get it done.

Society

As I sit in a candle-lit room, next to my computer, I sit back and look at society. Today as you all know was Black Friday. Yes, the hellish day in the city, where people rush to Mr. Big Commerical. I sit in disbelive over the fights I hear about on the news about getting a parking space at Toys 'R Us, just to get the latest wizbang toy. I guess the blame goes on the stupid kids who demand the toys -- but is the fault the adults.

Any rate, it's over, and I avoided it completely, by staying up in my room, in my house in the middle of nowhere.

Holiday Sprit

Excluding all of the Consumerism stuff I talked about above, I love the Holidays. Yesterday I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Prade on NBC, followed by "It's A Wonderful Life". That's the truth.

Life is fun. You should always have fun. And sometimes forget your worries and cares. Christmas is a reflection of life, and how great it truely is. The Holidays show people's love to one and another (excluding the parking lots).

Today, I have been listening to Mp3s, that I have downloading mostly from OpenNap. And, yes I own records and or CDs of most of them, but I am too lazy to rip them by myself. Christmas music is awsome, especially alot of the older stuff (from the fourties, fifities and the sixities) -- like Bobby Helm's Jingle Bell Rock, Bing Crosby's It's a White Christmas, Nat "King" Cole's The Christmas Song, Andy Willam's It's the Most Wondeful Time of The Year, Lou Montie's Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey, etc.

Of course, Nat "King" Cole has that cool song "Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer" for summer too.
