Linux Day 3 + Warhammer geekery...

Linux Day 3:

I have managed to figure out how to connect and partition a hard drive. It turned out to be slightly simpler than certain 'helpful' websites had led me to believe. So now I'm looking forwards to plugging the last two in, and see how I get on.

I have also managed to find a reasonably decent Solitaire clone. This is very important!

I have access to MSN Messenger via Pidgin and VLC is providing me with all I need to watch my pirate downloads (Yarrrr).
I haven't sorted out an e-mail client yet. I'm tempted to see if I can get Outlook 2007 to work with Wine.
I would prefer a nicer file system utility. I wonder if Midnight Commander or Norton Commander have some descendents for Linux...
That would be sweet...

I'll try to practice with the shell tonight. I'll need to move horrendous amounts of data around (about 1tb) so I'll have ample opportunity to try that out.

Then I'll also need to map network shares more permanently. I am supremely confident that I'll be able to do this.

Once that's done, and I don't think I'll get it all done tonight, then it's time to install and configure Compiz, it's basically a program that should enhance the user experience, and a music player...

In the meanwhile, I managed to finally get around to taking pictures of my full Warhammer Army:


178 Models
8300 Points

And when I posted the pictures I realised I had left one out... /sigh

And the other thing I'll be doing tonight and over the weekend is to paint...
I need to, at the very least, finishe off some of those tanks...
