I admit, i’m a believer in open source, and all that, but I’ve also believed that you should use the best tool for the job.
Hence, I use Quicken 2000 to manage my household finances. Lately I’ve kept it all in a Win4Lin session on my laptop.
Life is good. Except I’m now using the 2.4.0 Linux kernel. And Netraverse doesn’t have a patch out for 2.4 yet, so I can’t use Win4Lin. That’s OK =- I have VMWare. I use it for tests , but not regularly. Now I remember why – it’s dog slow, eats CPU resources, and sucks memory like a crackhead sucks the pipe.
Above and beyond that, I’m re-writing a buttload of database routines so that I can implement a “universal Connection pool” adapter for work. Cool beans. Except Turbine 2.1-dev isn’t backwards compatible. And so now I’m back-porting my code to 2.0, because Apache Cocoon uses 2.0, and I need Cooon as well.
Renee and I are talking about joining a Gym/Fitness club – we’re both out of shape, and have differnet goals. She can get away with tapes, but I can’t – I’m more interested in a “traditional” workout. Some strength building, some endurance building, the usual manly thing. *smirk*
We shall see.l
