more blue-green cocktails in front of linux desktops

Last Saturday night featured a green drink in front of an Ubuntu/Gnome desktop. Tonight's post features a blue drink in front of a Debian/Gnome desktop. :drunk:

Years ago I was a cocktail snob. I would only drink liquor straight up or in a cocktail with only one mixer. Now I'll drink anything sweet 'n fruity that will eventually knock me on my ass. Pretty colors are a plus.

So, what does this have to do with Linux desktops? I have no idea! I guess with Linux your system maintenance falls to about zero, so you have time to sit back and get snockered. No reboots, no defrags, no jackin' around. Just have a blue/green drink and enjoy the thumping techno/trance pouring from the speakers. 😎

    They both quench! 😆 In other news, I just learned that Debian Squeeze has been frozen. OMG! OMFG! lol. I guess I'll have to start drinking frozen drinks. I can't remember what will come after Squeeze, dang it.

  2. That's a mighty fine drink and Operating System!

  3. I only ever have a hot cup of tea or coffee in front of my screen, but when you start talking chips…welll…..the variety is great (almost done eating my way through ALL the flavours offered by Lays…)

  4. I get the small packets and restrict myself to 2 chips per page I read.

  5. Barbeque Fritos! They sound good already. At present, my fave is the Ketchup flavour from Lays 😀 😀

  6. I hear ya on the chips.I got to cut down on those calorie dense chips. I find any thick cut kettle style chip to be yummy. Even the mega-giant Lays puts out primo gourmet stuff now.

  7. Still liked from my teen years, yummy but deadly, Barbecue Fritos. The "nutrition" stats on the label are frightening.Drink a sugary soda with them, smoke a cigarette afterwards, and you're totally good to go!

  8. "I guess with Linux your system maintenance falls to about zero"Right, but windows has got one good feature. If you're behind with maintenance it starts up so slow you can fix yourself a nice lunch and eat it before you can even start up a browser 😀 btw I'm still happy with my Ubuntu Lucid Lynx :up:

    It's a tricky little bitch. No matter how ready you think it is, every time you reach for the mouse, an hourglass appears on the screen. Somehow it knows.

    You won't believe this, but once I had a real puppy mouse hiding in my computer. When I turned the computer on, he got out so fast even Linux could not follow it. 😆

  11. You are spoiling me.You are spoiling me.You know I'll do the fuckin same thing. Bad Bad Bad!!!!!I tried Debian few times because you always admire it but the problem was my new hardware as they concentrate more on stability than new features and hardware support. So I guess my best bet is always Ubuntu and Slackware.P.S: Did you get my keys?

    What!! I thought I sent you the keys of the Rover? May be I mistook the keys, they all look fucking same!Update and BackUp your keyring regularly, I know the fucking consequences if someone don't.

    Usually the problems are with Wi-Fi, Video, TouchPad. Ubuntu is really pushing hard to get the market share in Linux and they are succeeding.After all Shuttleworth's money and lead is doing many good things for Ubuntu Project.

    I put Debian on Brian's new laptop, and it was a helluva lot of work to get the video right, plus there were some other issues. Ubuntu got it right with a hard shove from the command line, so I left it on there.My desktop has common several-year-old hardware, so anything goes on it easily. Debian testing and unstable actually have newer packages than Ubuntu usually, but Ubuntu saved me tons of time and effort on that new laptop.
