Well I finally took the plunge at around midnight and started to install Debian gnu/Linux.
I cant do things the easy way (my laptop is only a P II 300 with 160 MB and a 3 gig HDD) so I got the business card install about 40-50 MB and did a net install, I am using an old XIRCOM real port that overheats, it was high 30’s (celcius) today so I have the pedestal fan blowing on the card until I get the base install done and then get the Orinoco drivers running for my wireless..
Oh and I am doing a custom install to save space..
Wish me luck and lets hope that those swimming penguins can keep me afloat
While just gliding around under her para glider 2,500 meters or around 8000 feet up Nicky Moss (of the English para gliding team) got attacked by a couple of wedge tail eagles.
Reuters is running the story about her twisted tail in outback New South Wales, in a bid to become a better para glider pilot and beat us in the world championships Nicky was just flying around minding her own business when a couple of Wedge tail eagles swooped in and scared her right in to a wedgie, and at that height I think it came with a skid mark or three.
“I heard screeching behind me and a eagle flew down and attacked me, swooping down and bouncing into the side of my wing(para glider) with its claws,” Moss told Reuters on Friday.
