Blogging da' bullshit facelift

Using blogger new "Template Designer"

It is pretty obvious that this is a blogger blog with a custom domain name; and since the beginning I've tried to make a kick ass design; which made me think several times to make the blogger to wordpress transition since it is sort off easier to design websites on wordpress.

Well.. I'm still using blogger and got rid of all my template tweeks. Too bad as I had to read way too much crap to know what I was doing.

Now, blogger has introduce a new designer thing... I checked it out... and in less than 5 minutes I pimped my blog. Way to go google!

Now... my overall design has the header over the blog part at the same level of the sidebars... and i meant to keep that; but it has been impossible to get the transparency of the image shown... Minor thing but it's looking pretty damn nice!

Slackware 13.1 on the asus laptop (eee 1005HA)

I've been using this little machine as my main system for the last couple of days since one of my hard drives died... well it was recoverable with zerofill / dban but why bother? The hard drive still under warranty.

back to Slackware 13.1 released on may 24th; it is not really a breakthrough but an update to the legendary linux distribution. The upgrade from 12.1 to 13 was the biggest change just by taking into consideration that since then, Slackware Linux support officially amd64 processors.

I've chose slack because of
Anyways, i wanted to write about my experience with Slackware and the little netbook that could. This machine lack the horsepower but has enough capabilities to print out a nice smile on my face; and Slackware 13.1 has improved the performance in comparison with winXP or kubuntu; wich is amazing.
