We Are The Champions

This is a great day in baseball, at least from my point of view. The Saint Louis Cardinals won the 2006 Major League Baseball World Series. Everyone counted them out saying that they didn't even deserve to be in the playoffs, but they showed everybody it is not over until it is over. To everybody who is crying, and you know who you are, remember there always is next year.

Need For a New Sexy Hackergotchi

First off I would like to say hey to all readers of the Foresight Planet. Since, I am on there I think it would be a good time to update my hackergotchi, however I have no gimp skills. I am wondering if anybody out there on the interweb would be interested in making one for me. Here is a photo that can be used or this one, use the one that would be the easiest or look the best.

Thanks all

Ricer No More

First off I would like to apologize for the posting of previous post, I decided to try out the blogger beta. So, when I transferred my blog it reposted all of my previous posts.

This post may sound all to familiar to followers of the planet, since I am now the third person to drop Gentoo. Both Tristan and Jordan have posted their reasons for leaving. I am leaving Gentoo and going to Foresight Linux. I am not moving to a distro that is more "free" like Tristan and Jordan; instead I am moving to a distro that has all of the software and functionality I want out of the box. Another plus is not spending days to get my desktop setup just how I want with gnome and all the other programs that I use. The main reason I stayed with Gentoo for so long was that I wanted a distro that I could keep on the "bleeding edge" with gnome and the such. Since, Foresight's claim to fame is its bleeding edge gnome following, so this is the perfect distro for me. If you are interested in learning more about Foresight come to the next Chicago GLUG meeting on November 4th. I will be giving a presentation on rPath and Foresight.

Later all

Planet Upgrade

So I don't know if anybody noticed that Planet ChiGLUG was having some problems with is feed generation and we were also having problems with it not picking up some new feeds. Well I got these problems fixed by upgrading to stable version 2.0 of the planet software. I also decided to change the old style of just text links to the feeds to image links for the feeds. Also I added links to add the planet to your bloglines or google reader. If there are any other such sites that you would like me to add just let me know.

We are always looking for new blogs to add to our planet so if you want to get your blog posted on our planet just email me( with the feed to your blog, your full name, and your nick/handle if you have one you want to go with your posts.
