Last night (…and a bit in the morning) I blissfully upgraded my desktop from Fedora 18 to Fedora 19 using a new tool called FedUp (FEDora UPgrader). Now; I’m no punk when it comes to installing a fresh copy of an operating system, but I trust Linux upgrades over any other OS upgrades any day of the week.
It’s been about 4 months now and I think it’s time to inform you that I have a new job. Yup, I’ve left the public sector to rejoin the living in the sweet, sweet private sector. In this new position my job title is “User Interface Engineer.” Sounds fancy, eh!?
Oh the Spotify Gods have smiled upon us this day! Backing up some — after the 3.6.6.x kernel update my Wine didn’t seem to load anymore. I then went looking for an alternative way to run the Spotify program and came across a forum post with successful installs on Fedora 15 and 17. I’m writing this post to sort of put it all together in a neat, consumable, package instead of the running around I ended up doing. Spoiler Alert: The native client access is ONLY for premium members.
I checked “my YouTube” on Xbox and was excited to see a new Epic Rap Battles of History! This one was pretty cool — Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates. It was released four days ago and it’s already at 10,000,000+ views. Holy crap! The song was pretty funny, but to my surprise the hosts then gave some well-deserved love to GNU/Linux, represented by a HAL9000. The Linux love starts at 1:33.
The Wife and I laughed our butts off. Kudos to ERB. I felt the love!
