Where Has The Time Gone?

Wow. I can’t believe it has been so long. Long story short: We sold the condo finally in May for less than we’d hoped but we bought a far nicer and larger place than we expected for a lot less than it should have cost us. Owning my own house is great. I have a […]

Adventures with OpenSuSE 12.1

After installing OpenSuSE 11.4 (which was completely flawless) I decided to give the OpenSuSE 12.1 upgrade a try.
