Surfing from a Ubuntu live CD
I am trying not to over do it today, activity wise.
Last night was the deadline for tree trimming untill August, so I was out there in the front yard after dark, reaching as high as I could, cutting off some offending limbs. I felt it later on that's for sure.
All Toni's Linux talk has got me hankering a bit again, so late this afternoon I downloaded the latest Ubuntu version and created a CD run version of it. Very nice, in the functional sense.
It found my WiFi network and set it up. The fonts don't look as bad as they did even a year ago. The 4gig usb drive plugged in and was immediately useful. The SD Card in it's slot is nicely recognized and the partitioned drive where I store all my data is accessible to me from here.
The usb keyboard I use plugged right in and is wroking fine without even a hickup.
So, not bad at all
Especially for a system I am effectively running from my DVD rom.
