I’m back :p

I have had some computer issues that kept me from posting the last week or so.

I needed to move my monitor and when I plugged it back in it died on me.

My laptop is in the shop (again) and I didn’t feel like posting here using my Asus Eeepc (to small for writing posts).

Either way, I’ll be posting again tomorrow.

If you have any subject (linux related) you would like to see me make a post about, post a comment here and I’ll might just do it.

(for people interested on seeing my new computer setup, keep reading)
