Ratty New Year

Posted: 01.01.08 in Blogging

Welcome to 2008, or in the Chinese zodiacal system, we’re still in the year of the Boar. It will soon be the year of the Rat, however. Anyway, I greet the year with a cautious pessimism though. I can’t imagine it’s going to be a good one particularly. But it has started off fairly well.

I’ve managed to get Ubuntu running — after a day of trying to stop it freezing (and I still can’t get the thing to shut down without breaking) — and I have managed to get Ruby on Rails to work on my Ubuntu system (which took only three days, and managed to complete this morning). So I’m working through this book in order to get my head round it. It strikes me that even though the book can only be a year old, it is hopelessly out of date, with version number mismatches stupidly duping me (me being the stupid one, of course). But it’s all working.

On a completely different note, I bought some Kickers Zepplin shoes yesterday for £54. I had been eyeing them up for a long while, and the £60 price tag had put me off. However, Debenhams yesterday had a 10% off event, and though I’m not proud of spending £54 on a pair of shoes, I am happy with the product I have received.

So what have I decided on a New Year’s Resolution? The short answer is, I haven’t. No one suggested anything, so bugger you I’m doing nothing!

Happy New Year!
