Sittin’ Pretty – But with a Sore Spot

Without going into a lot of detail right now, I can report that I can already write in Kate and OpenOffice, which are better and have more features than I had in Mandrake. I can do web design; Quantra + is here with bigger, better

Sorry…

Sorry, no article this week. I haven’t had time to finish the one I started last week, and been too focused on settling into my SUSE estate. I won’t forget you though! Social Bookmarking

Just in Time for Joyce

We got back on Sunday evening from a wonderful weekend away to Alberta. (You’ll find my photo story of Kevin and Jena’s wedding in the Ruthes Roses section). I’d meant to drop off my films as we came through Saskatoon, but the Superstore was closed already, so we made another trip into the city (just […]
