Post 2

And this is from my linux desktop, which is on Debian wheezy, also known as 'testing'. But its almost bedtime now, so I'll chat later.

I'm still alive!

This is just to prove that i'm still alive, and intend to post a bit more on here in the future. So, watch this space! :)


I felt that my palette needed cleaning after innumerable cups of tea, so I opened a tin of grapefruit segments that I bought from lidls yesterday morning. And then without realizing I ate the whole tins worth!!!!

I felt sick and bloated and all I wanted to do was to lie down in bed and read, no cups of tea no nothing. Gradually I felt better as they were digested and passed through the stomach into the intestines.

So here I sit with a cup of tea, and being determined never to eat a whole tin in one sitting again. The discomfort just isn't worth it, and its just greedy too.

Twelve hours sleep!

Well! I've just slept for twelve hours solidly, but I feel much better for it. Maybe today I can go food shopping as I'm running out of things to eat, not that I feel hungry. I've had a marmalade sandwich and that's enough for me at the moment. But I've been drinking tea like nobodies business! But I still cant sleep tonight, presumably I've got rid of my sleep deficit yesterday? So today I'll go out food shopping and then go to sleep for the afternoon? We shall see.


I've been an insomniac for as long as I can remember, but now its at its worst, in that I'm awake all night and sleep during the day. If I want to go out and do things like shopping or a trip to the library then I must go in the morning before I go to sleep. But sometimes I'm awake all day as well, which means that I probably spend the whole of the next day in bed asleep, having just crashed out and sleep the sleep of the dead! Its not ideal, not by a long shot but it is a life, and I've adapted to it and can function in it. But I would rather sleep at night and be active during the day, like most normal people do. Its just like when I was working nights when I was nursing, not ideal but just something to be put up with knowing that there was an end in sight. Except that there is no end in sight for me at the moment, no light at the end of the tunnel, so I just put up with it and try to live life through it.

Testing blogilo

I'm running on debian 6 which comes with its own blog poster called 'blogilo', and this is just a testing post to see how it works.

Powered by Blogilo

Debian 6

Just posting here to keep the account open, and to say that about two months ago I moved from centos 5.6 to debian 6.0, which was a good move except that i wiped my backups off the external USB hard drive in the process! Not good, as I've lost all my backups and am having to rebuild things from scratch, which isnt easy. But, I'm hoping that I can use 'blogilo' to keep this blog updated, but we'll see.

Eighteen months!

I see that its now eighteen months since I went over to centos, and its been nothing but pure joy. 99.9% of the things that I try work straight out of the book. and the other 0.01% work when asked about on the irc channel. Support is good and knowledgeable on the 'centos irc channel, and everyhting just works.

Another post another distro :)

I've very recently upgraded to CentOS 5 and am still getting used to its quircks and idiosynchrasises [which is proably spelt wrongly :) but, I like it. And I like its long support cycle, for another seven years! And if I do decided to upgrade to CentOS 6, that probaly won't be around for about another two years. Life is sweet :)

The Logjam Shop

I just went to the shop to order myself a tee shirt, until I saw in faint grey letters that they would only supply it to the USA. Common guys, the world is a bigger place and a bigger market too ... open up to your full market place!?
