quick update – way too much overtime at the moment

I’ve been practically living overtime at work at the present time. We’ve had a couple of people move to other roles in the company, as well as a few leave, and also just generally getting busier. The upshot of it all is that we’ve had heaps of overtime for the taking, so I’ve been taking it. I have new spectacles to be assessed for, and then purchase, so the cash is definitely going to be useful. Unfortunately, that means it’s spent before I get it in my hands.

I downloaded and installed the latest Ubuntu distro this week. It’s currently set up as a dual-boot on my laptop, along with Windows 7. Very much liking the new aesthetics of Ubuntu 10.04, and the revised formatting of the OS. I have reset GRUB to have Windows as the default OS (I’m doing a little tutorial [here] about changing the GRUB boot settings), and have started to have a little play with it all. I am finding the OS very intuitive although, as you would expect, different from Windows. As I’m picking up an HP 3100 mini in the next few weeks, I’m probably going to use that as my Windows portable and make my laptop a stand-alone Ubuntu machine.

I was also getting set to grab an iPhone 4 (and probably an iPad at the same time), but Apple’s got me all worried about it actually working now (Whoopi Goldberg makes a scene below about destroying her new iPhone 4) due to all these reception issues. I may actually just go and get a cheap 3G[S] afterall.

Anyways, have to pull a tutorial together later tonight, but I have an engagement party to go to now; so, congrats to Mims and Alistair.
