Powerbook Debian Software Update

Monday, July 28th, 2003

[ from the obsideon-switches-to-testing dept. ]

I switched obsideon to Debian testing rather than the previous unstable from months ago which was out of date and difficult to maintain. I had to fix GNOME 2 by installing gnome-control-center from unstable – and I would like someone to explain how apt pinning is meant to be done properly… :-) .

Another Update

Thursday, July 17th, 2003

[ from the yet-another-blog-entry dept. ]

I have been busy for the last few weeks but hopefully will have chance to write all about the fascinating things which might have happened. In short I graduated, then bought a bike and started going swimming. I am working most days at the moment and sorting jobs for September.

Graduation photos will be online soon though in the mean time check out Hussein’s Photos.


Graduation Today

Monday, July 7th, 2003

[ from the push-and-shove-time dept. ]

Today is the day of graduation, or alternatively the day before they push us out of the door. “Thanks for feeding the system some cash and now on your bike mate go quick!” – or something to that effect. They will surely start calling and writing to me about donating for future students in time…

…but I may well be back very soon as I have now had several job offers which allow the flexibility to persue a part time PhD course shortly.
Mental note to give pkh and team a bottle of bubbly as a parting gesture and reminder that I am planning to return for some time to come.

Photos later.
