"After a rather fine night out on the town, I came home in a rather inebriated state. Put the live disc in, and recklessly choose to install Ubuntu, and did so by wiping the entire hard drive (previously XP). This sort of switch has sortof thrown me in at the deep end, but I have no regrets and has to be one of the best drunken decisions I have ever taken..."
Ubuntu: It's so easy to install, you can do it when you're three sheets to the wind. Just goes to show how easy the install for Ubuntu really is.
On a completely different note, there's a browser based MMO, called Travian, that I've been playing, and its pretty dang cool. Maybe some of you remember playing "Kings of Chaos" and "Dark Throne", well this game is similar, but it beats the pants off of both of them. It's a good way to be able to passively game, while not spending more than an 15 minutes to an half-hour a day playing. Of course you could play it more, but there is only so much you can do at the "passive pace" the game plays at. If you do decide to play, I'm on Server 2 in the South-East area.
