I'm suffering my fifth day without my own computer, it's taking a toll on my sanity, my father's win2k machines are no help. Eventually after not using windows one starts becoming moderate and starts claiming that all operating systems have their place in the scheme of things during slashdot discussions. After using exclusivly windows for a week one realises that is not the case. It's pretty interesting how ignorence and moderation are so closely related. Perhaps objectivity is merely the state of not knowing enough to have a preference. I'm also just not comfortable on windows at the moment. I can't actually even think of a way to spellcheck todays blog on this accursed operating system. However, it's not like my dad runs a totally microsofty system, I'm using firefox for the first time and I really like it. I've been using epiphany for my web browsing needs recently but I think I like firefox better, and firefox should really fit in on my gnome desktop quite well by the looks of things. The problem is that even when I get my computer transported in a few days time, I will still be stuck hundreds of kilometers from my 512Kb/s internet connection and on dialup so I won't be able to download it, I fucking hate dialup.
