More Wallpapers

Well, I was slightly busy over the summer, customizing an openbox and other such things. In the process I designed 3 more wallpapers (yes, I know I only uploaded two, one of them I intend to keep for myself).

New Monitor (22")

Bought myself an Asus X223W 22" Monitor the other day, and it's great! Clean, crisp picture, DVI connection, and a 2500:1 contrast rate (not the highest, but it's great for what I use it for).

Here are some pics (of the monitor and of the PC setup):

I apologize for the bad quality pic in the dark, but it seems turning off the flash on my camera creates a delay between pressing the button and the camera taking the picture, which is hard to keep steady during that time. Did the best I could folks! :P

Also, I'm in the process of writing myself a website for Linux-oriented content such as videos, downloads (useful tools, wallpapers, themes, videos, etc.), my blog, and whatever else I can think of. Depending on how it turns out I may find a host for it and migrate this over to the new site. If that happens I'll be sure to write a blog entry here. It's hard to judge if this is necessary, as I'm not sure how many people actually read this blog. Lol, oh well.

Have a good summer everyone, mine's nearly over.

Summer Update

I realize I haven't posted anything new for a while on here. The reason is that I've been on vacation (and still am) in Canada, where the fastest 'net speed I have regular access to is 28,8K, in other words, too slow for intense usage (especially because it's pretty expensive too). However, I have been working on some videos which I'll probably upload to youtube and link to in a blog post for others to view (one is for installing Arch and the basic config - without sound, and I'm working on another which shows how to install xorg, alsa, etc. and configure it properly - it will have sound when it's done).

I will be going back home in about a week, then I'll need to finish some school work, so it may be a few weeks before I get around to uploading the videos.

Have a great summer everyone,
