Using the internet terminal at the hostel I'm currently in. 0.5€ for 10 minutes! Anyway, just wanted to say that I'm still alive and stuff.
I miss you all... :(



:rolleyes:
I see... you're implying that so long as you're paying to see us, we might as well 'put out'.

Between the Harz and Carpathians
Primus:

I'm using a Kubuntu 9.10 livedisk to access the internet...

Having built a new computer from second-hand parts that debuted upon my birthday, I proceeded to install OpenSUSE 11.2 and all was exceedingly well ( apart from random permanent freezes or stop-stuttering that could be down to anyone of the components overheating etc. --- or could be down to the iniquitous Dolphin file-manager, as it doesn't happen often when not using that crap, nor is it happening using Kubuntu. To their shame, OpenSUSE was equipped solely with Dolphin as admin-file manager, before one could choose Konqueror as file-manager or admin file-manager, now it has been downgraded to merely a browser ( which has no admin rights for chucking vast files from disk to disk )). The router was picked up instantly and all the internet was at my disposal until Sunday night, when a storm knocked out all the phone service for the area, which included the broadband, until the phone was restored at 9am this morning.

Secundus:

Broadband didn't work, except that it did using livedisks, so essentially OpenSUSE is not reading the router. I'm fairly sure that the storm did not knock out the settings in OpenSUSE... However, you may say, surely it is trivial to run a repair from the OpenSUSE 11.2 install disk: so it might be if the sodding disk --- the very disk from which I installed linux did not immediately report a bad kernel image and stop. [ I remember this happening with Windows 2000 once; the system couldn't read it's own install disk... ]. So I can use OpenSUSE and this blazingly fast computer to my heart's content minus the internet, but believe me, computers are far less interesting without the ability to go online, as I found out the last three days. Or I can go on the internet with Kubuntu and not access the hard disks...

And of course, there's no way to update OpenSUSE online or to find out why their own DVD reports itself as a bad kernel...

On conclusion then, OpenSUSE is to be recommended, but 11.2 has flaws, and should not be downloaded for a month or so until they have addressed the flaws mentioned rather frequently at present in their own forum. In the meantime, I have no idea which network settings in YAST to alter, since they are as vanilla as when installed and when they worked perfectly.


And Dolphin should be returned to the sea.

I admit, everytime a villain fails in fiction I feel like "I could have done better!". Too often they fail simply due to minor details. But from the last few days I learned that getting things done with people you barely now/who are your relatives is a masterly performance of logistics and planning. Their combined skills in ruining every plan I puzzle out make every hero look like an amateur. Every person, every officer, every CEO, every evil overlord and actually everyone who manages to achieve something with one of these groups without becoming severely insane should be held in highest esteem.
In retrospective I was often tempted to interprete their astonishing as sheer malice. I am really glad when I'm done with all that. I think just today I had to walk 10km for no reason actually.

To speak a bit more clearly: The move did not happen at monday but will happen at thursday albeit I will get into the apartment from tomorrow on. It's really complicated actually but I haven't got the slightest clue why.
Knowing that German internet companies are only second to relatives in spreading madness through incompetency I think monday will be the earliest date at which I could have internet back.

:confused:

I was gone for a while. School, artistic projects, and the other less social parts of the internet distracted me from forums. But I like this place too much to stay away for too long.

So, after the move went suspiciously smooth the internet provider seemed to have forgotten me. Now I simply ordered basically the same product from a different company which seems less oblivious. I guess it will take yet another week til I come back. At least.

It's funny, because that's what everyone keep saying to me, and it's actually been rainy shitty weather for the past week and a half. The floods in Sao Paulo have been all over the news here.
I've gone to the beach once D=

Yeah, it got kinda... bizarre... around early afternoon...

I think Jesin staged a coup. :phear: A really, really weird one.

...Am I also correct in assuming we lost a little bit of data?

Call it goodbye for now. Sometimes it takes a while to become part of the family, but you're welcome to come back any time Cauterise. I wish you the best in the mean time.

Why, thank you. Fortunately, as always, I changed my mind.

Well, I'm off to basic training... I may be on IRC or post from my phone over the next couple days, but that seems unlikely as I'll be fairly busy overall. (also why I've been pretty sporadic lately anyway.)

I leave feb. 16, I should be back some time around the end of april, beginning of may. Dunno how much of an impression I've really made here to be missed, but I'll surely miss some of you, and especially reading many of your posts, our converesations. ^_^

Hmm, so many have left. I suppose that explains why I haven't seen them. I should pay more attention...

Anyway, soon I shall be leaving... for a time, probably a long time. Hmm, probably a permanent time.

Is there a forum we need to post to about this kind of thing? Heh, Kuu, you're so optimistic. Time collapsing...

I figure this is where we have to say our goodbyes yeah? Well, I'm not going to get all long winded and BSy, I'm sure everyone's had enough of that crap out of me. Basically, I'm just not feeling the vibe here. Not for lack of trying on everyone's part. I've learned a lot here and everyone's been nice and put up with me. It's been fun, but it just doesn't feel like "Home", you know? I've tried to find my place here, but my attempts seem awkward and misplaced.

I know most of you are probably like "Whatever". Just one more thing. I tried to wrap up my threads, sorry to leave some loose strings. Do whatever you want with those.

Later. (And Thanks).

Ah, Zero.
Why leave? You've been here for a considerable amount of time, and I'm sure I won't be the only person disappointed at your passing.

I hope you change your mind. :(
