The old alero lives

i wish i would have had my camera yesturday while in hays. i saw my old alero .. it still has the flames on it. i was crusin’ through Wendy’s and just as id gotten my food this car pulls in and there is no doubt about it. it was my old 1999 olds alero the one i traded for the ‘Rolla it had nebraska plates on it and a gal was driving it. her name was Jessie (i think thats how you spell it didnt ask her that). i pulled and said that i had a strange question about her car and asked her where she got it.

her dad i guess i a car dealer up where she is from and bought it from a dealer’s auction. i explained that was my old car the one i traded in for my ‘Rolla. i just said im amazed you kept the flames on it. she explained that at first she didnt like them until she started noticing all the alero’s that are out on the road. well thats one reason i put the flames on it the other reason was alot of chicks drive this car not many guys do so i wanted it to stick out.

finally i said thank you for atleast talking to me and sorry if i freaked you out about asking you about your car i said its just i thought id never see that car again. it was one of the best cars i ever drove. also gave her one of my cards told if she ever gets time or thinks about it send me some pictures of it some time, and parted ways.

the good os

the good os

ive been tinkering with this Ubuntu or Debian based linux distro called good OS or gOS there have been some to mistake this for “GoogleOS” which technically doesn’t exist as an official OS “GoogleOS” refers to all their online services. this is called gOS.

The earlier versions (1 and 2-beta) used the Enlightenment 17 window manager instead of the usual GNOME or KDE desktops, to create a desktop that had similar usability to Mac OS X. Based on the idea of cloud computing, all versions of gOS lean heavily on on-line applications built on Web 2.0 and AJAX technology so they also do not use much hard disk space for applications.

gOS Rocket’s primary features included a Mac OS X-like Dock called ‘the Launcher’, containing icons to launch the following programs: Firefox web browser, Rhythmbox audio player, Xine video player and Skype for Internet telephony. Other programs could be added to the Launcher as well. The first E17 based version of gOS used another Dock-style interface called the iBar.

There were also icons to launch Firefox to specific web-sites and web applications for Google Mail, Google Talk, Google News, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets, Google Reader, Google Product Search, Blogger, YouTube, Facebook,, and Meebo to online chat with Yahoo! Messenger and .NET Messenger Service users and Wikipedia.

in this screen shot you can see some various windows and the run command which is not the same and the terminal …i so found out

opening the terminal was a chore and it only opens in root you cannot not just sudo the terminal which i think should be fixed you shouldnt be running in root any way.

just running some updates after searching for the terminal
