The Circus is in Town

I have been remodeling a bathroom for some extra work. The thing I find odd is that between jobs(I was laid off two weeks ago) I was able to wear whatever I wanted all day, I as comfortable. Now that I am doing this current job I am wearing clothes I do not care if I ruin. What I find is that I feel like most of the jobs I work I am in clown outfits(the current job included), That is what I will remember as I look for work, do I feel like I am in a disguise, do I feel like a bozo.

yeah new days

We have a new Mayor in Dayton, I am excited to see what our new mayor brings to the table. I was very happy to see that issue 4 and 40 passed. Over all it has been a good day. Wish Esrati would have won, maybe next time, he gave it a hell of an effort.

ubuntu 9.10

Ubuntu I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 this week and have been real happy with it on my desktop. The default theme seemed fresh and not so brown, I changed the the window borders to a black over glossed theme. I have been happy with the little things it is snappier, I am using Evolution it is a good replacement for Thunder-bird, it syncs with my Google calendars. A lot of things I am happy with I believe have as much to do with Gnome development. Nautilus just gets better, the back button works no need for xbindkeys. The biggest tweaks I did were a startup firewall script, use my keyboard to wake from suspend and change the xsplash to an all black field(the spotlight theme was not for me). I have not witnessed the fast boot times, that was never a big concern on my Desktop. I can see the boot times being more important to me on my netbook maybe. Over all I am happy with the new Ubuntu.
