Well today was warm. It rained a bit and tomorrow will be 54 and sunny. I have some grass to cut tomorrow. Most of the reason I will be doing it is for the leaves from the trees. I have been playing with the RC flight simulator a bit too as well.

Supper today was Chinese buffet that was really good. I really like the salmon they have, its the only one that tastes good that I have had. I also decided to put XP back on the Averatec, I accidentally recalibrated the battery as I forgot to plug it in!

Well today was okay. Not much happened today but I had tacos for supper and my stomach is bother me. It was a nice day weather wise. It will be wet tomorrow. I am so sick of this rain. I want to use the 22 and the pistols but it keeps raining.

I finished off Call of the Wild yesterday and started on White Fang today. I like reading on the Visor. The screen seems to be nicer to me. I wish that I could have a larger screen though. It would be nice to have a 320×480 Palm with one of those E Ink screens.

Well, today I have some good news and some bad news. I went back to Windows on the Toshiba. I am also going to see America at Penn’s Peak so its a good night there. I also want to say this. I did miss Windows enough to go back and I have a good reason to go back. It doesn’t run as hot and I think I get better battery life on it.

Supper today was home made chicken Florentine which came out differently but still good. I also want to add I am so sick of rain. I am not sure what the weather for tomorrow will be as I am not home as I type this, as usually is the case on these trips. It keeps raining on the weekends and we can’t use the new guns!

I also want to get a scope for the air rifle. I seen a nice one at Dicks for 50 bucks that looked like it would work well. Its the same brand as the one that is on my gun now, a Center Point. I want to look it up better and see what people think before I go and buy one, since I don’t think you can take them back. The one I am looking at has a nicer cross hair too.

I have been thinking about my writing a bit lately. I am using the iPod again. I still have over 12,000 songs to rate. This is one of the reasons I did decide to go back. On Ubuntu I tended to play the same songs most of the time and never got to rate much more. This is a problem since I have so much crap to sort through.

I also am traveling light tonight with only my Toshiba, its batteries, that APC battery pack I got for Christmas a few years back. I didn’t bring the charger since this is a short trip. I have the 9 cell battery and that external one so I am covered to last for a long time. Music wise I brought the iPod and my Sony headphones. I really like these news ones I got.

I also brought the Visor. Why only bring the one PDA? Well I am reading ebooks on it. I like the Visor for this since it gets good battery life, and the black and white screen feels easier on my eyes, especially at night when I do my reading. The best part is all the free books online too. I have a program that converts PDF files to Palm files. I use Plucker on the Visor to then read these files.

Well I decided to install Karmic on the Toshiba as well and I am happy I did. Its a little different in some parts but I like it. The new software thing is cool as it shows you a screen shot now. I don’t think you can still select a bunch at once though.

Supper was cheese burgers but they didn’t taste good to me, which I think is from the cold. It was a wet rainy day here too. It will be nicer tomorrow 57 and cloudy. I seen a good scope for 50 bucks for my air rifle. I want to look into it.

Well today I decided to try the new Ubuntu on the desktop. I will report on it tomorrow. I will reserve it for Toshiba till its officially out though. Supper today was breaded pork chops and angel hair pasta. It was a wet day today and so will tomorrow.

I have become addicted to Fallout 3 again for sure and I am starting to feel better but wasn’t the greatest this morning. I wanted to go shooting but looks like I won’t due to more rain. I also need to mow the lawn soon and get the leaves.

Wow I forgot to post this. Good thing I remembered before it was TOO late. Sorry! I was playing Fallout 3 again. Supper today was Salisbury patties in gravy and mashed potatoes. Weather was nice and I am almost better.

It will be 57 and cloudy tomorrow. I will be installing Karmic soon. I had some troubles getting my desktop to boot XP today. I am going to try reading more. Thankfully the visor is nice for that since the black and white screen seems easier on my eyes.

Well today was okay. I am feeling a bit better and I did get the air gun sighted in to near zero. Not 100% accurate but great now. I can shoot without aiming to left a few inches. I also watched Monsters Versus Aliens which was pretty good.

Weather was nice today and tomorrow will be 60. Had homemade beef soup today that came out really good. I am having a slight heat issue with Ubuntu under the touchpad area. If anyone has any ideas leave a comment.
