One less Windows PC in the world

This was a while ago now, but back over Christmas I got rid of a buggy install of Windows on Mum and Dad’s PC, and installed Ubuntu for them instead.

I hope they get on all right with it, Dad seemed a little worried for a while, we had a go with the liveCD before the moment of truth.

Install went pretty smoothly, though it did stop at one point the first time round. One thing I did forget though, Ubuntu doesn’t have any modem drivers, so they might not yet be able to read this! Opps!

Of course, all this really is a cunning plan to finally get Dad to fork out a few quid every month to get broadband! 😉 How else do you get someone who thinks it “won’t make him enjoy the internet more” up with the times!?

So, Mum, I hope you manage to get a network card installed OK, and back online soon!

Goodbye summer!

So, realising that it has been over three months since I last wrote anything here, and summer is on its way out, what have we been up to!?

Good question, but between Tania, work, play, and a week away, the summer has flown by!

I now have plenty of catching up to do, photos to upload to flickr, and continue my efforts to get my ubuntu linux system connected to the internet so that I can ditch this windoz junk!

Has it really been two months…?

I have just realised two months have flown by since my last post! I’d better start making an effort round here!

We have been pretty busy, with a trip down to Extremadura for Easter, and a couple of christenings, including Tania’s. Plenty of photos to sort through and update my Flickr stream.

Tania is now 5 months old, and still growing fast, more on her to come for sure!

Tania @ 11 Weeks

Tania was weighed and measured again today, she’s now into week twelve. How time flies!

Tania @ 11 weeks

So here is the key data:

  • Weight: 5.15 Kg (a little over 11lbs I think)
  • Height: 59cm!

She is still “long” as they say in spanish!

Tania @ 5 weeks

As promised, I’d mention how she measured up.

Tania Scullion Caballero

She had her checkup on Jan 10th if I remember correctly, and in good health. She weighed in at 4.11 kg and measured 55.5cm. So nearly 1.2kg and 6cm in 5 weeks!

Apparently she’s going to be tall and have blue eyes, like her Dad!
