Websphincter the gift that keeps on giving!

Honestly, could IBM make a product any more complicated? To download websphincter for linux and windows requires 9GB of disk space, thats Gigabyte with a capital G. Core blind me, I’m 17% through the down load and just 139 hours left to go. I’m not joking, I wish I were, and IBM chooses such clever and meaningful names for the downloads like, WTF, I’m sorry I left my rosetta stone up your asshole. Needless to say, I’m sure more fun will ensue.

Fedora Core 9, Dead on arival

I like Fedora/Red Hat it’s the only linux distro I’ve used in the last 5 years, but Core 9 is DOA. Any OS that doesn’t properly start its networking (and I’m not the only one to experience this) doesn’t make the grade. I’ve now down graded to Core 8 which seems much more stable (is Fedora turning into the Star Trek franchise?) Core 9 looks nice, but I’m going to wait for 10 after this experience, namely “no networking”, start the network via /etc/init.d/network and then login, guess what the UI doesn’t recognize the active network, and I say piss of.
