Feisty Fawn Refusal

Ubuntu’s Feisty Fawn beta fell at the first for me, wouldn’t start X and hung there so I couldn’t get at the error log and submit it as a bug. I’ve always had problems getting Linux up and running but I’ve nearly always suceeded in the end, despite a succession of somewhat kooky hardware. This time it’s a high-end-but-nothing-mad Dimension 9200 that surely ships to quite a few Ubuntu users, and if anything it’s a step back since the last version of Ubuntu worked on it, albeit with some tweaking. Shame really, I’ve been looking forward to playing with it; hopefully it’ll be fixed in the final release.

Engines again I’m afraid

This time an F40 on a dyno. For some reason the title on YouTube mentions that it’s red, presumably that makes it more powerful and better in bed.

I swear to god I don’t go looking for these things, they find me. Although I have just added an “Engineering” tag in WordPress…
