Older blog entries for thunder (starting at number 1)

As Pete told me today, "you oughtta post more diary entries. It is easy to forget for one or two days, or a month and a half." This oddly reminds me of this kid who lived down the hall freshman year who said he had "burned in hell for about thirty seconds to an hour."

Yesterday I biked over to Wellspring (supermkt) and got lots of munchies. Great stuff to have here in the computer cluster.. and a lot healthier than what you can get off of the snack machines.

Well, so I finally get around to posting something here :)

Well, I do have lots of news. Today Me and my friend Seth Vidal made the 0.1 release of DULUG-Linux, the first Duke University-specific Linux distro. It's based on Red Hat, with added security packages, and a few customizations (Helix Gnome, customized links, etc). This 0.1 release is not all that different from Red Hat 6.2, but it will soon grow to have its ownflavor, I hope.

Other than that.. well, my grades will suck this semester, since working on Linux is so much more interesting than learning Physics (no offense to the physics majors, really. I just think they're insane ;).
