The New Facebook


I was invited to a preview. It needs some work yet. It's a tad different than the preview screenshots they have been releasing to the press. I'm not sure if they're working toward the screenshots, or if they're changing the direction they're going. The biggest complaint is the lack of hierarchy on the new profiles. Everything is light grey or light blue, it's hard to tell what's going on. There is also a extremely lack of customization as far as where applications go. Right now everything is dumped on the "Boxes" tab, but I want to be able to put my "Extended Info" and "Classes" applications on my info tab.

Loose Cannons


Loose CannonsAre you still in Madison? Good. Go see this movie at The Orpheum playing through Thursday. Loose Cannons is a hilarious student-created feature film set right on the UW-Madison campus. It features Chuck Sypholis, part of the student-run "Campus Security" on his hunt for Spencer Huntley and his gang, the "Freshman 15" who stole the football team's playbook and plans to sell it to Minnesota. Filled with witty jokes, kung-fu, and gun fights, this movie is an enjoyment all around. Watch the Trailer at YouTube.

Time to try Linux?

If you've always wanted to try Linux, now is a good time. I recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 exclusively on my laptop without a hitch. Wireless card worked, external drives worked, sound worked... all out-of-the-box without special configuration.

But before I continue, a quick Linux 101:
