Ohh thank god for Mondays

Monday... and back at work, what can I say? This week will probably be as good as the last one. I got what I wanted right away, I got Friday off and I'll work on Saturday instead. I was also assigned a little bit of extra work and that equals more cash and that's always welcome. Tomorrow I'll probably get my Sony DSC-P1 digital camera. If I get it I'll put up some pictures of where I live. Stay tuned!

My day off

Ahh, a whole day with no work. Today I accomplished... well nothing, I said it was my day off didn't I? Well, I figured out my ADSL problem with Debian today atleast. It seems that the network adapter in my computer is a bit old and needs to be replaced, so I'll buy a new one when payday arrives. That and a new harddrive, and a new mouse, graphics card, motherboard, cpu and a whole lot more. Well we'll see what happens.

Hard day at work

OK, so I worked today(Saturday) instead of Wednesday. Got payed for 2 days of work instead of one, which ofcourse is great. So I'll probably do that next week too. Having some troubles installing Debian over my ADSL connection cause I can't find any howto's that describes what to do if you got a static IP(which I have ofcourse), so if you can help drop me a line at all help appreciated.

First Entry

OK, time for my first diary entry. Finally after months of waiting I finally got my ADSL. Experiencing rates up to 310K/sec so I'm not complaining at all. And with that a static IP address. One book left to read and then I'll try to write something useful for the Linux community(FINALLY). Well that's about it, currently listening to Sonata Arctica ( as mad, if you haven't heard'em go visit their site.
