If technology doesn't seem like magic, it's probably obsolete

I'm finding less time to update my blog these days, but my flickr photostream is often updated.

Playing in my house right now...

Fedora

After getting another reminder email from Red Hat telling me errata support for Red Hat 9.0 would end on the 30th of April, I got together with John to upgrade my home server.

John brought round his supersmall mini-ITX computer, which is really lovely. Once my moblog scripts are working again tonight, I'll be able to post a picture of it. Over the years, I'd accumulated a LOT of unneeded files, so I took the opportunity to spring clean over 14GB out. It then took about three hours over a fast 100Mb connection to dump all my MP3s and files off lofi.

The Fedora install itself was going to be an upgrade, but there were a few niggling things with the file system setup that required a disk format, so we opted for a clean install via FTP from John's box.

So far, I'm liking Fedora. I'm now using the GNOME desktop instead of KDE and liking that difference too. Everything feels a bit more polished and smoother than with RH9, even though the difference is probably actually tiny. lofi even feels a little bit faster, too. :-)
