What a Giant Hiatus

Well, I’m back to using Arch again on my 3 year old laptop. This thing has gone through thick and thin with me. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve installed Fedora on it. Probably the first one was Fedora 8. The main reason I went with Fedora was because they were the first ones to include the experimental rtl8187 module into their kernel which is what my computers wireless “intigrated” adapter uses. Its not so experimental after 3 years anymore :p Anyways I digress.

The main reason I left Arch was because 1) Windows 7 came out and 2) stupid engineering classes demanded windows only applications like Revit Architecture and Inventor. I can’t wait ’til I go to college so I don’t have to sacrifice my stuff for work when I can use the schools computers. Hopefully I will get in Georgia Tech next year since I missed application deadlines this year in January. Oh well, more time to pull my horrible GPA up and have some more chances with other scholarships.

One interesting thing that I found when I came back to Arch was that… well actually nothing changed. I thought that by the time I came back that hal would have been let go by xorg and the kernel. But I guessed wrong.

That’s all I have to say about everything right now since I’m still catching up. Oh, yaourt got some new added features like deleting makedepends for you. That’s all I can remember :)
