Long time no see

Wow, I haven’t updated this blog for a long time… I’ve been on holidays in Bulgaria in the midst of September, then we did the most rushed move in the history of flats (thanks to all our friends who helped us), which was immediately followed by a month of furnishing/unpacking the new flat. What happened between July and September? I don’t know… must’ve been some sort of time hole.

They promised to open up their drivers (which was the main reason for me to buy an ATI card in the first place) and neither have they done so in the meantime, nor have they shown any clear sign that they will in the near future.

I was already thinking about somehow writing down some of my experiences with computing in general and Linux in particular when crouse started offering blogs on this website. Being a very satisfied Arch Linux user since early 2008, I didn’t have to think twice about this generous offer. My name associated with my favourite Linux distribution? Why not!
