I’m a tad addicted to Linux and learning it’s little ways right now. I think it’s that Lium mentality thing. Once we find something we realllllyyy like it’s this never ending drive to just work work work work work away at it.
Right now my mission is to find a VPN client for Linux so I can use the internet with it and put Grass and a few other programs on it. Puppy Linux, which my friend Chris uses, is made to run externally from your HD (i.e. on a CD or flash drive or whatever). So that’s really great. The issue is that I still need a VPN client in order to get through all this proxy crap at the University. Not tooooo bad.
I’m addicted to learning Terminal. The last time I used Terminal was mostly for email purposes at Harvard (pine) and a few other random things. I always liked being able to get into stuff that way. It seemed so much more. . intricate than clicking here and there. It’s not as pretty, but it feels that much more intriguing. You’re going “behind the scenes” as it were. Just don’t type in the wrong command line. . .
Today I meet with my advisor to talk about Thesis topics and finally settle down on one. This means I will be looking up bat information for the better part of my weekend along with seeing what books I can grab out of the library for our case study on limestone pavement in Ecosystem Management.
I am not too thrilled about all of this coursework buildup. The Robinson Library and I are going to be getting very very close this term. *sigh*
I like having GIS in the beginning of my week. It gives me something to look forward to on Mondays.
Anyways, I have class in 30 minutes and I’m not even ready.
