Went into the job centre on
Monday to ask why they had refused my claim. Ended up seeing
a different person to last time and he said that the head
office was always losing claims! I'm just glad that I'm
living with my parents and not having to support myself
right now, anyway the letter that was sent to me on Saurday
apparently refused me for one type of benefit. Of course
they don't tell you this and instead just say that they have
refused your claim, so this now means that everything should
go as plans and I'll recieve a cheque for back payement,
yeah right. I'll believe that when I see it.
Machine Problems: Once again my machine seems to have
been unstable over the weekend, despite upgrading to
2.4.7-ac8 (from ac2). But I have decided that it's still a
hardware problem and have removed the 128mb dimm from my
system and so far it seems to be stable.
Dual Head: Decided to start playing with this feature
on the G450 again, I got Xinerama working after playing with
the XF86Config and had fun playing with that for a while.
There is a problem however in that my two monitors aren't
actually next to each other, so I set out to get 2 desktops
working. A long time later raptor on #linux
(irc.openprojects.net) showed me how to get it working and I
now have an excellent setup. Enlightenment and Gnome run on
the 19" and just Enlightenment runs on the 17" I'll pehaps
put a picture up when I get the digital camera back from Kodak.
Programming: Had fun playing with Glade over the
weekend and started going through my gnome/gtk book and then
promptly stopped with a problem, which eventually turned out
to be a corrupted glib.h. It must have been corrupted during
one of the system crashes.
Cinema: Saw Rush Hour 2 on Monday, I thought that it
was better than the first and it is now high up on my list
of this years top 10 of films.
