race to witch mountain 200

i was looking for race videos over the net. but using the word "race" on search engines gave me race to witch mountain. i got curious and watched it. sad to say, it ain't my type.

fair casting and not so good effects is what i can say. it's not good, but, its not bad, either. i don't recommend to buy or rent it. borrow it from someone you know that owns one. or, maybe, download it from thepiratebay. i also won't recommend that you keep it in your hard drive. it's not worth keeping. oh, and garla gugino is still hot.

gamer 2009

i got interested with the gamer because of gerard butler - very good acting on 300. but it didn't started there. it started with the spy next door of jackie chan where i saw amber valletta. and as an info geek that i am, i searched for other movies she starred. and gamer was her last movie before the comedy/spy flick.

review? it's bloody, sexy and cool! which means it's good. i would recommend it to be watched on the big screen. but hd/plasma at home will do.

linux firsts

i came across the linux timeline in wikipedia and learned that there are three major distros(distributions) where most of them came from.
ubuntu, KNOPPIX and gibraltar are some of the distros that were based from debian. i would say it's a cross between slackware and redhat - and that's based from some of my research. i just dont have time to post details

madriva, fedora and the "philippines distro" bayanihan are based from redhat. a very corporate feel and stable distro if you ask me

slackware, which was the basis of openSuSE and vector, is a hobbyist distro basing from its history. althought, its support and community are as stable.

learning linux

i've always wanted to learn linux for years. but i'm still stuck with this crappy w!ndows v!sta - yes, v!sta. the crappiest of them all. and now that i have some time and a spare laptop to use, i managed to install ubuntu studio. why ubuntu studio? i just got fascinated with the programs it came with.

the first thing i checked was if i could go online, wireless that is. sad to say, the browser couldn't fetch anything. fortunately, getting the laptop wired got me online. and that's one less trouble for me.

now, the problem at hand is that there is no wireless connection. solution - search the web.

i landed on and found out that ubuntu studio doesn't install the gnome network manager which is like the "view available networks" on xp and "connect to a network" on v!sta. so, lets just install it. i mean, lets try to install it.

next: installing a program in linux
