Happy happy!!

Just finishing up configuring the computer … i have managed to enable sound – hooray! Strange it didn’t just happen automatically when all i needed to do was run alsaconf and it figured it all out for me. Also playing with Samba and network sharing … at the moment i can see my partner’s computer, but it’s not working the other way around, or at least, i don’t know what authentication details my partner is supposed to supply. No worries, we don’t really need it right now. I am also finally figuring out symbolic links and how to use them effectively.

OH MY GOSH!! I have just found this Rhythmbox music management package which has managed to connect to my iPod and play stuff from it – annnnnnd connected to MuggleCast and is currently playing me the latest episode!! This is the greatest!!

This computer is such a great birthday present to myself! :)

Here are my other presents and cards that i had this morning:

Birthday presents

Now we’re looking into Songbird – as a cross-platform alternative to iTunes. Exciting!

  1. Happy Birthday! I’ve been unable to send text messages all day but just got back to my PC after my grandad’s 80th birthday party so I could post this :) Glad you’ve had a good one.

    Oh and I strongly recommend Amarok over RhythmBox, it’s commercial quality in my opinion. Oh and if you like apt-get, try aptitude.

  2. Many many happy returns of the day. You can always learn new things when you are configuring a computer and that is how I have also learnt many things. I hope you and your partner both will find each other on the network. If you want to visit some fun stuff then you can visit
