I'm posting this from the no longer entirely crippled, entirely free software Ubuntu installation on my previously dead desktop machine. Yay! It's pretty. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sdemory for the tip. Easiest install ever, excluding Mac OSX. I did have to install the Nvidia drivers, which (a) warned me that they're proprietary and (b) required an admin password. So, just barely more complex than reinstalling an OS on a Mac. Barely. Very happy!

Now to figure out how to get Japanese going on it.

My ISP just sent me a lengthy email detailing in outline form all of the new features they'll be upgrading my service to next month. The entire letter is a giant PNG file, not text. C'mon, Rambo. Are miniscule variations on sans-serif typefaces THAT important to you? Or are you just utterly stupid?

...Can there possibly be a technically reasonable explanation for sending out a mail in graphic form, in this day and age? I mean, I can't even search my files for its text, should a need arise. Jackasses.

Edit: One main point in the mail is that my hosted website will be "frozen" from July 24 to August 5; nearly TWO WEEKS... and they're giving me apparently 8 hours notice about it. Double-Jackasses!

Edit: This is one of the lamest feature implementations I've seen for a meme-device. It doesn't mention where it came from ([livejournal.com profile] c3fyn) or that it's going to set you up to post to your own LJ... Weird. Is this new?
