Ubuntu 8.04 is out!

I've been running the beta for a few weeks, and I'm happy with it. (Of course, having a new computer with SATA II, a 2.8 GHz Athlon 64 x2, 4 GB of RAM, and an nVidia 8600 graphics card may be part of that. OTOH, there's a new Phenom stepping that fixes the notorious TLB bug. <homer_simpson>Mmmmm, four cores...</homer_simpson>)

It's easier than ever to give it a try; those afflicted with Windows can use Wubi to install it with minimal fuss.

Not to mention that tanjalin  will really like the new wallpaper... :)

I couldn't help it...

Sometimes, for the heck of it, we watch The Ghost Whisperer. It's gotten pretty silly--not that it didn't start out that way. Tonight's episode is about an independent film maker who died before he finished a movie and was finishing it from beyond the grave. The protagonist  nudges ghosts along to the next stage, I had this sudden image of Jennifer Love Hewitt telling the ghost to move into the light, and the ghost saying...

"What--and leave show business?"
