"I am what I am because of who we all are".

Nothing much to think about, but this is just the African meaning of Ubuntu, fyi.

Much to my dismay, I already had reformatted my hard drive, therefore losing all my files. I do hope there were no important files that only the disk had. Well, I really did not want to lose my files (esp. my movie downloads), but I became desperate into using my old computer over the Holy Week. My Windows 2000 had crashed before and ever since, I had just plugged in my hard drive into my roommate's PC instead. I had a hard time reinstalling Windows OS, my cd installers got to be defective for some unknown reason (wear and tear?). The reformatting was a result of win98's setup which required reconfiguration of my partitions. I can't access the NTFS partition only using the win98 boot program.

With all the difficulty with the installation of Windows, I suddenly tried the Ubuntu Linux I got from CNL. My CPU is an old AMD K6-2 500Mhz; I don't know how it shall fare. At least now, I have internet access into my room as I already have my PC up and running. I may not enjoy multimedia benefits, but at least one of my goals nowadays is to make myself well-versed with softwares such as Linux and maybe some other kinds of programming.

My blog was originally aimed into something techie, but it always turned out to be my ranting section due to my academics. Once in a while, I may be some kind of an amateur (pro)blogger. I kinda want to write, but I just don't know on what topic. Well, I guess, this is one of the effects of not having anything yet worthwhile to do for the summer.
