So, late last night I traded in my newly install Mepis for Ubuntu. Yet another very solid and smooth Linux distribution. You can even get a copy mailed to you for free if downloading is a problem.
There are enough reviews floating around the www about this one, but I’ll give it the miltown stamp. If you have the time try it. There’s even a LiveCD version so you can boot it up without a hard drive installation.
I realized today that my time is worth approximately $40,000US/hour. OK, that figure might be a slight exaggeration, but I think people place far too low a value on their time (well, I feel like I do anyway). I understand that people need to put food on the table and all that, but doing too many hours a day and leaving little to no time for “me time” is a bad thing.
What’s bringing this out of me is working the second job in the afternoons. On one hand I’ll have more money at the end of the month, that I could save or buy stuff with. On the other I’m losing time that could be used playing with the stuff I already have. I guess the thing is I have so many projects I want to work on right now that time just feels really valuable to me.
Maybe you’ll want to skip reading this month. Maybe it’ll be full of tiddly little rants.
OK, done for today.
Paint me yellow and call me a banana
