The Weekend is on

Yes time to relax and chill out. I have a friend that will be leaving the area (Deming) on Monday so today we are going to hang out. My friend, like me, is on the Atkins diet but today we are going to do bad and have us a pizza. I have already started to eat bad with a Biscuit and gravy from Denny’s and then a Cinnamon melt from McD’s, so I will be on a roll all day! It feels good to eat the junk food once every now and then. I have made a rule of no more than once a month for bad food days. Over all however, it feels better to not be too far over weight, so I will be careful with the bad food days.

Weather; It is cool here today, just 56 ° inside the RV, but I think by the end of the weekend it will warm up. Looks like nice weather for next week with temperatures in the 80’s for the day and 50’s for the nights.

Computers; I am enjoying playing around with Ubuntu. I just now was figuring out how to do the Character code for the degree symbol in Ubuntu. In Windows you do ALT+ 0176 and that gives you this little guy ”  °  “, but in Ubuntu you do Ctrl+Shift+U and while still holding the Ctrl+Shift you do Letter “B” and Number “0”    so pretty much like so   Ctrl+Shift+UB0 . In Windows you can find a list of Characters at Accessories/System Tools/Character Map. If you are doing Linux you can find a nice list here. It is fun to me to learning little things like this.

On FireFox I found a new Plug-in that I like and it is “DONOTTRACTME” by Abine. I don’t know why I bother with these privacy plug-ins, if you are on the web, everything is pretty much out there.  I think I just like making it hard on all the marketing folks ……….. yes  photo yes.gifI do!! I all so use Noscript and BetterPrivacy, All that should give the marketers some work to do.  I got to remember to add DONOTTRACKME to my Windows machines. I am pretty sure I lose all my privacy when I get on my Smartphone or Tablet, I think they are pretty open to all kinds of tracking.

If I find the time today maybe I will get me a haircut. Update 3:30 pm I got that hair cut.

Playing around with Ubuntu and Windows 8 booting order a little, hope I don’t break nothing. 😯
