... spring cont.

The honking of the geese
The trumpets of the swans
The Qvak of the ducks
The chirping of the birds
The last flurry of snow from a fading winter.

The heart wants some place warm ...

... Spring cont.

The warmth of the sun on your skin.
The bite of winters grasp not quite released.
The hint of green below the brown grass.
The valiant shoots thrusting up.
A shiver from a dyeing winters rattle.

The feet are restless...

The smell of the frost in the morning.
The glow of the sun in the morning.
The straining shoots.
The popping of the bud.
The waking of the world after a winters slumber.

The urge to see things...

First post from Kubuntu

I have made the Jump. Windows has been exorcized from my computer.

It was very easy to get it installed, Although it is not seeing my raid yet so it is only installed on one drive.

Wow is up and running, need to figure out how to make a script to do what i need to do to run it. But it works.

Later today I will get Skype installed and IM, then the photo software.

The reason for Jumping ship was i had Windows 7 beta installed. In the fine print on the disk it said you had to register within 30d or it would invalidate. I didn't see this and windows didn't prompt for it.

Well the other day the 30d was up. Windows then deactivates the neat visual features of windows, and ALL your network adapters! so even if i wanted to register it on-line I could not! Well that was the last straw and windows is gone foreever!
