||Restarting with the VMs
Posted on May 20th, 2010
|Today began with a trip to one of local nurseries. Mom picked up a few things, and we were off again. We decided to look for another nursery mom had heard of, and drove around until we found it. It was rather dinky, so we decided not to stop.
We picked up lunch at McDonald's on the way home.
I spent the afternoon working on getting a Linux virtual machine going again. Kubuntu 10 boots to a black screen and freezes, so I tried Debian 5. The first go around ended up with Kernel panic and file system corruption. I tried installing with different options, and this seems to work. However, there's a notice in the lower right corner that a kernel failure occurred, so it may not be as stable as hoped. At any rate, it runs both compilers it needs to, so all's well now.
I spent the afternoon with Guild Wars. My Necro/Warrior is now Post-Searing and nearing level 9. Once she hits level 9 she'll be able to use the necromancer bonus weapon at full power and really level the place.
Today's link for the day discusses how people lie. Of course, I'm not sure how honest people are going to be on a survey about lying...
