Debian Linux and Ubuntu issues.

View of Earth from space.

I have changed my header graphics and the CSS code once again and it looks a bit more stylish, with the simpler bevelled title graphic. I need to keep it simple and have a stylish looking website, with not too many graphics so that is loads quickly. I am posting this HD video of the […]

Lord of the Rings & Linux.

I have just bought Lord of the Rings The Two Towers on DVD and it is amazing how much stuff they cut out of the theatrical release of the films. Especially Sam & Pippin discovering Sarumans stash of food and Longbottom leaf. This blog is still going ahead despite all of the haters and trolls […]
