Well, it's been a week since I've downloaded and installed the new Jaunty update to my computer. and by computer, I mean my laptop and my netbook.

the install and download went well with my laptop. Took forever and a day to download all the upgrades but worth it. I was able to install it with no problems.

The boot takes a shorter time. Just like they promised. It's a very fast boot! The loading screen, though, I don't like so much. now it's kind of a squished ubuntu title with a needle thin line beneath it to show that it's loading. Eh, I can deal with it. just...odd.

There's...absolutely nothing you can notice on the surface. Really. All the graphics look just about the same. Same set of themes. Well, at least they got rid of that nasty coffee stain!

I guess all the updates are under the hood. Open Office is now 3.0 (thank god). Firefox is now at the 3.0 level as well. There's a new browser on the block: Epiphany. I haven't used it extensively but lots of reviews claim that it's a bit less heavy than firefox. I believe I will try it definitely with my netbook! Pidgin is definitely updated. And personally, I really like their update. why? In the past, my biggest complaint has been I usually don't see when someone sends me a message. Now, not only does it flash in the tiny icon in the top right corner, it also displays the message sent. Hoozah! thank you pidgin developers!

with a fast start up time, there's also a fast shut down time. Though with the desktop edition, it ends with a system beep, something most would find unnerving in the first few times.

Now, the netbook remix...


Here's what happened:

I started the upgrade. Then during installation, the screen flicked on and off then stayed black. Obviously, I had to restart it [alt+prt sc+reisub] and I just could not log into even Intrepid. So after a fitful night and posts over at the ubuntu forums, I decided to go into the recovery mode and fix the broken packages. After doing that, I was able to log in and finish the upgrades.

Gotta say though. That experience left me a wee bit disgruntled.

Anyhow. Nothing really was updated other than software upgrades and the new loading graphic.

Though I am happy with another aspect of this new upgrade...

My netbook now lasts about 5 hours. On an every day basis. Not just on a good day but an every day basis. The student in my weeps with joy.

That's about all I have to say about the Jaunty release. As exciting as it was, there's not too much on the surface to pull in the average joe. Aka, not graphically different. But under the hood, this baby's faster and ready to take on the world.

Ok people. Today's election day.

That means go vote.

I mean it. Go vote.

This better not be like the 04 elections where so many people rallied for all sorts of causes and YET they didn't show up.

So I'm calling on the bullspit that people are spewing. That's right. I'm talking to you, closeted picketer who refuses to go out to the polls/submit an absentee ballot because they are too lazy/tired/using so many excuses.

Last time, there was an excuse of: "But it's raining."

Bull frickin spit.

Today's forecast? Cold with maybe some rain.

I hope those people who came up with lame excuses last time will at least come out this time.

with women, it seems like we follow some sort of comicbook archetype (and yes, you can relate that to any medium with any type of archetype)

Superman/Clark Kent -
The good boy alongside someone who can save the world. The strongest, fastest, bestest but at home (or in private) just a down home farmboy.

Batman/Bruce Wayne -
The dark knight. That basically says it all. You don't really know about his ideas of good and evil, they could be completely skewed; he could be completely psychotic, cold, distant, and incredibly rude. But in private, he's a brooding man who's just waiting for the right person to come along and unlock the emotional floodgates.

Me personally, I find myself attracted to:

Battousai/Himura Kenshin -
The rough, dangerous, almost animal like, and incredibly instinctual Battousai who can just as easily chop you into chop suey as any person takes to say their name. But Kenshin is the altruistic, kind, gentle rurouni who is playful and humble and can fumble quite a bit.

Hrm, I'll develop on this when I have the time...because there are a LOT more out there.
