orc or deer?

Nowadays it sounds strange listening to the night. You don't know whether there are Orcs outside singing round a campfire or the deer has mating season. Roaring all the night sounds like from a different world. But thats only deer!

wlan works again

With the help of davids instructions and a little logical thinking I managed it to have my wlan work again after installing a new kernel on caliban.

final exam

Today I had my final exam for the PTS-licence. One question was about the project-methode shown on the FIRST-Lego League and the second was explaining new teaching methods shown on moodle or something equal. I finished it quite good, so you can call me quadrouple-ped. ;-) I will get the paper on friday. Ok, another part of my study is finished now.

Today caliban had his baptism of fire at my final exam in informatics. Prof: "The old beamer will cause problems, I think it will not work" - xrandr and "beam". Prof: "Oh, thats great!". After my presentation and answering of the questions I finished Informatics. Now you can call me tripl.ped ;-)

Last Saturday we had a fine small Debian install party. Two new "low-end" desktops and one "high-aged" desktop. It took more time than I thought but I learned a little more than I hoped. Unfortunately I had no time to start the PCs at all. But time will come on weekend.

Found a new picture viewer: mirage. For my PC it is a very very fast viewer. Although there is no thumbnail preview it is more faster than anything I had.

Debian Vista

Today I met two people who needed new PCs. The first one told me that she only uses mail and web for renting rooms and word for writing the offers. I showed her caliban with kde and showed her firefox, thunderbird and writer. "I can see no difference to my PC?" - "Do you mind "k" instead of "start"?" - "No, why should I?" - "Would you pay 100 EUR more for Windows instead of Linux?" - "No, not a cent if there is no difference for me." So she will become my testperson for a Linux PC user that is neither a freak nor a normal user. Just a simple simple user.
The second PC is new and uses MS Vista with firefox, thunderbird and writer for renting rooms to guests. (They didn't ask me before shopping). Guess what they payed more? There were two users: A and B. Logged in as A. "password incorrect" ups. Logged in as B (no password - sic!). Clicked on "home of A" - "you need administrator privileges to proceed, confirm?" - yes. Had access to home of A. Coppied files to B. Opened user administration, changing password of A. "You need administrator privileges to procees, confirm?" - yes. Password was changed. Tested the same thing the other way round. Acts the same. So what the hell was that? And by the way: 3 GHz and 1 MB RAM. The feeling was equal to caliban.
