CUPS working

Got CUPS working. I really should document my work… smb://vivin@excelsior/HPDeskjet812C… Anyways, all I have left to do is set up the colour scheme and stuff like that… of KDE… and install Mozilla again… Fun… Fun…

FreeBSD 5.0

Installed FreeBSD 5.0. Of course, nothing went as planned. I downloaded the ISO’s and burned them, but the CD’s turned out to be worthless as they wouldn’t boot. Don’t know why. So I ended up with a couple of coasters. I decided to do it instead through FreeBSD. It worked this time. Got my system pretty much the way it was under 4.7. I still have to set up CUPs. I did get Samba working again. Although, I should document my work a little better. It would be easier… especially with Samba… I spent 15 minutes trying to work out a kink… My quick and dirty journal file only had the remark “search the web for relevant documentation”. It took some time to find what I was looking for. Well, anyway… it looks like it’s working great…

No Texas

Woohoo! I don’t have to go to Texas. I won’t be missing any classes! This is excellent news… Everything seems to be working out. I hope it continues to be that way!

Luke AFB

My commanding officer said that he got me Luke Air Force Base. This is very good. Also, it seems that I might not be going to Texas for two weeks. This is also good. I’m on the way to getting my license and getting a car… Hope things work out…

Valentine’s Day

I just realized that on Valentine’s Day I could be in a Gas Chamber in Fort Bliss, Texas. What the hell kind of Valentine’s Day is that?

What the hell is going on? No, really… WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

Wow, so anyway I’m in Changi Airport in Singapore right now and I’m like… “Is this an airport or a FREAKIN’ MALL?”

Ok, so next semester looks to be a BLAST. That is, if I am able to do it. I seriously hope I don’t have to go to Texas. I mean, I have no idea where the hell I’m going. I know I’m deployed. But that’s about it. I have to wait until I get to Sweet Home Arizona. Seriously… WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! WILL SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? NOTHING MAKES ANY SENSE!

Oh look! There is a blue giraffe floating around! His name is Bob! Everyone say hello to Bob! Oh dear, I think he’s quite lost it don’t you think? Oh yes… Most definitely. (Say all that with a British Accent. OTHERWISE IT WON’T SOUND RIGHT!)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year. I’m in Oman right now…I’m here till the 12th, after which I’ll be going back to India. I’ll be back in Arizona on the 21st of January. Oh, and my unit just got activated. Our MOB date is on the 30th of January… Don’t know where we are going yet…
