Well, I know, it's been a whyle, but I'm back. To catch-up, in the end I only managed to install Linux on two of the computers due to the shortage of PS/2 keyboards and mice. (The only ones that Mrs. Gooch could salvadge from other rooms were AT style keyboards and there were allmost no mice to be found. I guess they paid the exterminator well. :) I have since moved, changed schools, adopted a much more positive outlook on life and allmost got a tan. (I live on the coast now.) Well, untill later, but hopefull not much later. :-)

Exams began today. My seventh period, Algebra I exam was today. I am a step closer to installing Linux on another of Mrs. Gooch's machines and I think that all in all it's gone well. I will probably have to revise that statement whenever I get my exam grade. :-)

Well, where to start...

Standardisedtesting continues. I am still in the room of my favorite teacher and loving every day of it. (There is a break from testing tomorow, though, and we have to return to our orrigional room. :( ) I am now helping the aforementioned teacher install Linux on the older computers that she accuired through a new program in the are that helps corporations get tax deductions by donating old PCs to schools. This organization, forgot the name right now, dosen't accept the donation, but, rather, serves as a middleman, connecting corporations with schools. It gets business a 100% tax write-off if the PC is new enough. (I think that it has to be less than one or two years old for that.) There is a bracked scale with deduction amount decreasing as the PC ages. I think that this new program will allow schools in the are that cannot afford new technology finally get back into the technological revolution, just as schools were in the 70's with Apples and Commodores.

Today is the day for the standardised acheavement tests in the lower grades of my school. many classes have been displaced by students from the lower grads testing with there home-room teachers in classrooms that would be in use by higher grade students in this first period. I, though, am happy about it. My class was moved into the room of one of my favorite, not just teachers, but people. She is a very nice person who trully cares about the future of her students and the school at which she works.

Within a few days I will be helping one of the teachers here install Linux on several computers that were accuired yesterday evening. They are not the greatest computers in the whole, wide world, but with Linux they will still be better than the new Gateway computers with windows.

Well, I finally got around to producing a decent web log. I guess that I just finally got fed-up with the diary template the Yahoo! had to offer, and when I saw Blogger.com I thought that I would give it a try. I hope to be sharing my life and issues that I feel are important with the world (or at least anyone who'll listen :) throught this wonderfull new web log. It's a bit late now so I won't post much, but I will be back...
