The Love Bug
Amy Update...
My little angel has been a bit unsettled in the last few days. She's been tired throughout almost the whole day... I can only put that down to the heat, and a natural defence mechanism to the discomfort of teething. Trouble is, she's almost impossible to get to sleep, but at least once she does, she's out for a while. She stayed with her grandparents last night, to avoid the fumes of the paint in her room... See here for the bright walls!! :o)

Car Update...
My poor car is in the shop again. I took her to Matthewman's on Saturday to get them to find out what was causing the whining noise whilst driving. I guessed that it was the rear wheel bearings as the noise held with the speed of the car, not the speed of the engine. Turned out I was right. They also found a problem with the suspension, which I had also suspected for a while, and I'm having to get both the front shock absorbers replaced. This car had better drive like a dream when I get it back... else there'll be trouble!!!

Geek Update...
I'm well chuffed with myself... I installed Ubuntu Linux on my laptop last weekend, but have been unable to get MP3s to play back on it. I found out last night that it's because they weren't included by default in the distribution. This is for legal reasons, and they wouldn't want to install proprietory code universally in a location where such activity was illegal. Sounds a bit daft, but does make sense really. Anyway, I got it working last night using a piece of software called Amarok, which is a kinda iTunes equivalent, but with some really cool features! :o)

software that wouldnt install on ubuntu

The software i couldnt install was some typing s/w for another user but now i found a web site which does the same thing so ill end up putting ubuntu back on as it only took 15mins to install, also i installed ubuntu along side xp but it didnt like it as i could get into ubuntu ok but not xp even though i put them on separate partitions on same HDD. It seen xp in the boot list for ubuntu but it wouldnt load as it kept restarting as it tried to load XP :0(
