[Diani Beach, Kenya]
GREETINGS FROM the the tranquil, escapist shores of Diani Beach – just around by the 40 Thieves beach bar and the famous Ali Barbours restaurant!

So, you’ve dropped by for a visit, eh? Well, come in…make yourself at home. I don’t blog as much as I should (or could) because I’m here in East Africa (primarily Kenya) where data services can, sometimes, be challenging – although that’s rapidly improving thanks to Safaricom’s speedy 3G broadband plus about 4 undersea fibre optic cables landing here at Mombasa on Kenya’s fantabulous, picturesque Indian Ocean coast.

Anyhow, I’m over here exploring, so you might as well explore with me. Right? Go to my Welcome page first because, really, I’m glad you decided to drop by and I want to roll out the red carpet for YOU. (continue reading)

Don’t hesitate to leave a comment or feedback. I plan to seriously overhaul this site with some kool WordPress stuff once I get some spare time and my lappie fixed. Cheers!

    Well, I never did get my iBook G4 fixed. Although my good pal and eBay guru extraordinaire, Bernie, brought down a used screen for me that he got on eBay, it turns out the problem is the logic board.
    To make a long story short, I’m now using Ubuntu Linux 9.10 on a Toshiba L305-S5994 lappie. Everything runs great and now I XP via VirtualBox. I do miss OS X Tiger, but I’m LOVIN’ Linux. ep, Desktop Linux is now viable and ENJOYABLE to use.

    I also urge you to try out Mandriva, OpenSUSE, PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint and SimplyMEPIS. All of these distros are highly respected and some are even more FRIENDLY than Ubuntu in terms of having the right codecs and slightly better hardware detection.

    In short, there’s no reason to run XP or Vista when you have the above desktop alternatives.
