I have recently learned about the complicated ramification of the Unix systems. So Linux is just a Unix-derived system, which has lots of distributions itself, such as Ubuntu.

But when even Ubuntu has more ramifications known as "editions"...

It was too fast for me to catch it passing near the moon. It would have been a cool photo :(.
Archie, how about a cat on the moon?( since Scotch finds these funny...)

...from Australia...

I was thinking about fish names and then I realized that "carp" is "crap" in my language.

I'm trying a little experiment for today. I just had a shower.
Usually, I would use normal deodorant after shower( I prefer spray deodorant during the winter and stickrollon during summer). But not this time. I used a potassium allum softened crystal that I moistened and brushed it on my armpits. I usually use this after shaving but I read more about it on Wikipedia and among its uses is as a deodorant.

If tomorrow morning when I wake up I don't stink, then I will have achieved a small financial success by not wasting money on deodorants anymore. The crystal I'm talking about is my father's, and since it has the same shape as it had since I remember it as a child, I presume it will last forever...

[EDIT] Also licking the crystal is like eating sloes/blackthornes(Prunus spinosa ). Well, if anyone from here tasted such a thing. I did...

[EDIT2] It seems to work, but I didn't quite sweat during the night. I'm too afraid it won't work so I can carry the experiment during the day...

[edit] just finished it :(.
Stalker: Call of Pripyat.

This game is addicting! Just traveled across the underground tunnels to Pripyat( arrived single- the rest of my squad died). First mission in Pripyat, 3 left to kill from the ambush(while the stupid allied NPCs die) and I die.
Quitting because of this, after 5 hours of playing.

Opened up some ink cartridges to learn how the ink is stored.

Yeah, I made a new tutorial for OpenTTD:

Aircraft Transportation Basics

Blame me for the jerky video, but I already wrote here how annoyed I am by the software I used to record.
I tried to compensate by at least adding captions...

I feel like I wasted an entire day :|. Would have wasted on games anyway, I guess :D.
