Oh wow! Look at this! Isn’t it pretty? I am living the dream of having free web hosting and a free domain name. It truly is beautiful. This land of plenty and freedom was not reached without blood, sweat and coffee though. I managed to find free hosting by searching Whirlpool forums and my buddy Alec told me about a site called dot.tk that gives away free domain names. There were still a few false starts though. I had nil experience in this field so I didn’t even know what it was that I had. With some great help from Tyler Johnson we decided that what dot.tk gave me wasn’t actually a domain name. The next day we decided it was. You wouldn’t believe it but all the tutorials for dealing with cPanel (I still don’t really know what it is) are about 10 versions out of date. FINALLY I got all the different bits to work more through trial and error than knowledge.
But it was worth it, wordpress.org (the program I’m using) can do lots of things that wordpress.com can’t do.
For instance here is a video that some of my friends from NCSS made. The old site couldn’t have done this trick.
If anybody could show me where the rest of the videos are I’d love it
I love Firefly, you should all watch it. This is my favourite quote, pretty much out of any show that I can think of at the moment. In this scene Jayne is jealous that Mal has a wife and wants her.
Jayne: There’s times I think you don’t take me seriously. I think that oughta change.
Mal: Do you think it’s likely to?
Jayne: Six men came to kill me one time. And the best of ‘em carried this. It’s a Callahan full-bore auto-lock. Customized trigger, double cartridge thorough gauge. It is my very favorite gun. [He holds the gun out to Mal.]
Mal: [exclaims in Chinese] You offering me a trade?
Jayne: A trade? Hell, it’s theft! This is the best damn gun made by man. It has extreme sentimental value. It’s miles more worthy ‘n what you got!
Mal: What I got? She has a name.
Jayne: So does this! I call her Vera.
Mal: Well, my days of not takin’ ya seriously are certainly comin’ to a middle.

I don’t think anything on that list is mutually exclusive although Regina Spektor probably doesn’t have half the things on it.
After all that I’m probably going to fall for a girl who doesn’t have these (again =P), I’m not even really looking for one that fits of all these things, just a couple. Oh well, such is life. At least I’m not bored.
And if any of you know me well enough to think of something that I missed out comment and say and I’ll add it in.
This is my desktop. What y’all think?
This might seem like a bland picture at first but if you look really carefully you’ll see hints about my setup all around it. For a start it’s obviously not windows. This suggests that I’m more then the average computer user. Looking even closer you’ll see that it’s not stock Ubuntu either. In the bottem right I have 8 workspaces (I’ve never filled them all up but one day I will). At the top right I have a cloud icon which means I’m connected to Ubuntu One. Off to the left I’ve got a quick link to Terminal because I use the damn thing so much. I hear that there’s even more that can be done to the Ubuntu desktop to customise it and when the month ticks over and I get more download I plan to download kde, another desktop GUI, thing. (which is meant to be better then gnome). Frankly, I like how there arn’t any icons on it. I think you should all get Ubuntu.
Oh, and the wallpaper is BEAUTIFUL.
