First things first. Merry Christmas to everyone!

Supper today was smelts, haddock, lobster, and spaghetti with tuna. It was a good Italian Christmas eve dinner. Weather was wet today. I don’t know what tomorrow will be since I have no Internet here. I wish my grandparents would get Internet but oh well.

I found the one alien blaster in Fallout 3. I will have to find the ammo for it and try using it, or trade it for 5.56mm ammo for the assault rifle. I could always trade for more stimpacks too since I use them a lot. Sorry this isn’t a long entry like I wanted to do but I am a little tired now from eating too much.

Ok so today was pretty fun. I helped make some sugar cookies over at friends house. That was a lot of fun but a little messy. I will say in advance tomorrow will see a late entry and I am unsure of the size. I want to make it bigger then normal since it is a holiday entry.

Weather wise it was a chilly day. It will be 43 and rain tomoror0w. A lovely Christmas Eve! It will start as freezing rain though which is even more fun. Supper today was fried chicken and French fries. All it all, it was a good day. Expect a large dinner report tomorrow!

I have been having good luck with SuSE so far. I had a little problem with my audio but I fixed that. I got Basilisk II running so I have something need to play with. I will need to keep tweaking stuff since I have some other stuff I would like to get working. So far there is still no thoughts of Vista coming back!

Weather today was cold… We had a lot of wind so it made it even worse. Tomorrow will be 28 and partly cloudy. Supper today was hot dogs and chips. I got to say I still love fallout 3. It is one of the better games I got. I just wish I got it before I got Bioshock.

Well, I have to say that I think I will be keeping SuSE. It works great so far. I have it able to suspend to either disk or RAM, my volume is pretty good and so is battery life. Everything works! I also have OpenOffice 3 installed. I have the processor scaling right and my media player works fine.

I had raviolis for supper today which were good. I also had a hoagie with my friend. You just have to love turkey hoagies. The weather was nice today. A little chilly, and we got about an inch of snow. I wish we got more though. Tomorrow will be cold and we have a wind chill advisory. It will be 22 and windy tomorrow and a freezing 11 tonight!

Well, I am starting to look into a desktop computer again. I will be doing the build your own thing of course. What I want to do really is a cheap but decent, with room to expand, Linux computer. The main plan is to get a mother board that has a onboard graphics card, and add one later one when I get more money. I only want to go with 2GB of RAM, and use an old hard drive. I have an old IDE 120GB that I could use and then add,an ESATA one later. Like I said the key thing is that I can add more later.

Now I am not one for looks but I found a very neat clear case for 50 bucks and a 430W power supply for 35. I think this would look really cool with a blue LED fan inside. I could sleep it when I want to go to bed so the lights dont keep me up. Of course, I won’t be doing anything since I don’t and won’t have the money for a long time, and I have a perfectly good laptop.

Supper today was homemade pizza. I also got a DIR-825 router today so I have a wireless N and will use the old one for G devices. Going out today was hell too.Weather was cold today too. Tomorrow will be another 2-5 inches of snow.

Well we got a good 6 maybe 7 inches. I also made a good 20 bucks! I should have taken a picture I guess. I am also downloading OpenSuSE 11.1 to try a dual boot system. I hope it works better then Ubuntu does! I just wish it would download faster.

Supper today was McDonalds since Arbies was closed. I will also be making my old Acer into a desktop so wish me luck there. I got XP back one it but for some reason my TV will not adjust right for the resolution. It will be 26 and cloudy tomorrow.

Well, today was fun. I was over friends house and his sister was driving me nuts. She kept touching my computer. I got my Zippy batteries and the Accucell charger today as well. I will have to make a Deans adapter so I can try to charge my other batteries I use. I love that it has a glow start adapter.

Weather wise nothing exciting happened today. It was just cold. But tomorrow. Heavy snow! 5 to 8 inches! We are getting snow! This means I will have some work ahead of me. Supper today was beef stew that came out really good. I love beef stew.
