Wednesday 16 October 2013: Debian
Another busy day.
After dinner I helped a friend install Debian GNU/Linux on his computer. He has used Ubuntu and Mint quite a bit over the past 5 years but is now ready to try the source and use a more flexible solution if more complex solution. The install was painless and worked first time (as expected), we then added all the extra bits he wanted using my local cache of data. He still has a few configuration changes to make but overall he's got a pretty good installation with all the desktop and server components he wants done in about 3 hours. It could have been done quicker with a faster CD-ROM/DVD player or by booting of a hard disk or network server but that's about all.
Today's blip is a child's plastic top, it's some kind of centipede, it's about the same size as the Scolopendra gigantea, which is very big at around 30 cm long. I've blipped it as it's the same shape as the Debian logo, it's a tenuous link to what I've been doing but it's the best you are going to get!
