I found this wallpaper for Ubuntu Linux while surfing around.

Thought it was kind of fun.

Roughly Drafted

Posted 2006.07.10 0.00 in Computers/Internet/Technology by Stephanie

There’s this e-zine / web-zine / magazine site called Roughly Drafted which I’ve been reading for the past couple weeks. It’s about technology, computers, the internet, and other topics along that line.

The writing is excellent and the author, Daniel Eran, is very intelligent and insightful, covering a fairly broad range of topics with a great deal of authority.

Some recent articles, or series of articles, introduce and explore themes such as Open Source software, cellphone music players vs music players that are also phones, and a series on what Apple’s .Mac service is, and how it can change the internet world.

It’ll be one of my Links-Of-The-Week on my main site but in the meantime, go have a look. It’s good reading.

The Rain

Posted 2006.07.10 0.00 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

I love the rain. I especially love storms, all the crashing and banging and booming and brilliant flashes and window-rattling cracks.

I work in an office in the centre of a building with no windows, no way to see outside at all.

Why does it always rain when I’m at work and unable to enjoy it?

Last night it was supposed to rain. I was at home, and spent the afternoon and evening by windows, watching the sky, waiting. It didn’t rain.

Now I am at work, and it’s raining.

Drat.

The Sun

So of course by the time I could get out of work, the rain was over and the f-ing sun was out and shining.

The weather hates me sometimes.
