2010.03.25 Thursday

Tired at work of course. Hard to believe this week went by so fast.

Went to work out at the gym again. This time around I went to the bench press and tossed up various weight amounts around 125lbs. After that I did a range of small sets at various angles, both incline and decline bench with 35lbs in each hand. Then toss in some skull crushers, butterfly curls, and some ab workouts... and I'll call it a day.

Hasbro showed me / reminded me of a cool weightlifting site. I even has animated gif's for each exercise, and technique tips. I'm going to try and design some workout routines so I can add in some new stuff.

Got home today and played around some on the drumset. Then I just decided today would be a good day to go through with learning some linux. Grabbed Ubuntu 9.10, and installed it in such a way that I don't have to mess with partitions or changing any windows settings. Well, it didn't take long to notice that my wireless adapter wasn't working. Great. Years ago when I installed Ubuntu over Christmas break while I was stuck in bed sick...ubuntu had horrible support for wireless drivers. So that eventually became something I didn't want to work with. (Also, ubuntu did some crazy password management and ended up locking me out of my own account.) So I guess you could say I'm a bit frustrated that years later, I still don't have the technical support I need. I tried installing sound drivers just to see if I could play some music, then later found out drivers were already installed just set up completely incorrect so I couldn't hear anything. Back to the wireless, I tried many many different suggestions online, only to fail every time. Maybe my setup is just too different.

I don't feel like giving up yet, but I also don't feel like switching out wireless adapters whenever I switch operating systems is convenient by any means...considering that I get what I want from Windows (reliability, speed, programs).

That sums up most of the day. Hamburger Helper for dinner.

linux is all open source, just program a fix yourself
