iMacLinux

I've been busy, and haven't done much with the site in the past week or so, besides news updates. Also, I have to say my Howtos and Guides machine is running out, as I have written up about everything I know, not to mention the fact I am running out of ideas for new stuff.

Any ideas for Guides and Howtos, send them to me.

School

Another week done. Christmas break. Today I spent two and a half periods with the Spartin Singers caroling. Not to mention, we did a concert in the afternoon to. To say the least, my voice is sore and tired (not to mention the fact I am sick and have a cold).

Oh, regarding the question that got brought up in Course IV Math, I remembered (a bit to late) that the milk sac, is the thing about the teats of a cow.

My coat jammed my locker today. Luckly I got it fixed (rather quickly too).

For an programming class project, we had to do websites. I decided to a site on Censorship, and related topics. You can see it here. Not sure if I am going to turn it into anything beyond something for a class grade, although I like how it is turning out with the news, etc.

Scouts

My Eagle Scout Board of Review is scheduled for (gulp!) January 11, 2001. That's not far away. And my application, still isn't done, and I still have yet to have a Scoutmasters Conference yet.

I now have all my references -- I got Mrs. Orris, Mrs. Rogers, Mrs. Coyner, to sign. Well all except the religous one, I'll probably use the Clarksville Church (the troop's sponsering organization).

I started writing my personal asperations essay for the Eagle Scout application, although at this point it's bloody crap (to put it nicely).

cowsandcorn

I got my RAM upgrade yesterday in the mail for cowsandcorn. I will probably install it later this weekend (or maybe I'll be a good boy and wait for Christmas).

I also was playing with KDE 2.1 a bit. It's cool, although I still think it's an overkill for my usage. I really just like X-Chat, Netscape, gkrellm, and blackbox for the stuff I do. Not to mention gnome-xbill and gnapster. ;)

Society

Alot of the stuff the normally goes here on society is now on my censorship page. If I decide to stop messing with that, I'll start posting that stuff here again.

A release of Hard Days Night is now out in Theater. I plan to see it tommorow, I'll try to fill you in with the details.

People really should spend more time looking for the good in society, and less time concentrating on the bad.

The whole Democrat vs. Republican thing is really starting to tick me off. While there is a world of difference between the parties, they both have some very vocal radicals that make them seem similar.

The leftist Democrats seem like Socialists (wanting to protect everything with large Federal Goverment buecracies), while the right-wing Republicans seem more like <blanks out, Mussonlin Italian party allied with Nazis during WW II>. As they say, the Mussolini at least made the trains run on schedule.

Goverment is very powerful. It can harm and help.

However, I disagree with (especially Federal Goverment) large agencies getting in other people bussiness. People should be free to "hang themselves with their own rope" if they want to. A freedom forced upon you, isn't a freedom.

I have to stop now, I don't feel that good tonight (I have a bad headache).
