Thoughts and Considerations

===Well, I have switched over to CrunchBang on the laptop, and it is working quite nicely.  I had thought about possibly using some of the repositories for Debian Sid in order to get XFCE 4.8, but I will wait until it hits the backports. (For those not linux inclined, I switched distributions from Ubuntu to Crunchbang.  Both are Debian-based (Debian is the project that they draw their base from).  Ubuntu has shifted a bit towards a direction I do not like, so I decided to try a different distro.  Crunchbang is essentially a fine-tuned Debian, without the bloat that Ubuntu has been going towards.) Crunchbang is based off the Debian release “Squeeze”…but they have their “hey, this is what we are working on…it may very well break your system” available, which is known as Sid.  ” Backports are recompiled packages from testing (mostly) and unstable (in a few cases only, e.g. security updates), so they will run without new libraries (wherever it is possible) on a stable Debian distribution.”(Debian pages)

===Around Mithlond proper, we have gotten the fields brush-hogged a bit to keep the meadows manageable and actually be meadows. This behooves me to get the chicken tracktor up to snuff, so that I can get them out there and keep the ticks down.

===I think coffee is the next thing on my morning agenda, though,,,,
