March of the Fat Penguin in Search of Pancakes

UnderpaidLoveMonki @ 8:39 pm Monday, August 14th, 2006

Early evening, a Fat Penguin was marching around Costco aimlessly like a child in a candy store. It suddenly had a craving for some BP pancakes. Well, here’s some pancakes for you, Fat Penguin! Enjoy, my obese friend! :)

Image Board Up and Running

I finally set up my own host name through BlueHost yesterday so I could experiment with different things before I try to implement anything here. Check out the first thing I implemented last night. Set up my own Image/message board. It is based on the anonymous model, with no registration required. Was a pain to get it to look how I wanted to, but I got all the framework done and my basic layout complete. :) Just click the image to check it out, and feel free to post an image or message or whatever.

What this also means is we have more bandwidth and space to work with here at Fat Penguin if we ever need it.

A long wait

I started downloading a new distro to try out. Its called KateOS and boasts:

Kate OS is a multitasking operating system which provides all that is necessary for programmers, webmasters, administrators and home users. The most important Kate OS features are high efficiency, safety, reliability and low system requirements.

It was origionally based on slackware, but is now changed substantially. I had used slackware for a number of years and KateOS seems quite interesting, but I am mostly concerned with its package manager. Is it powerful? Can perform automatic system updates? I read that it does not do dependency checking, as a means of simplicity and as Slackware’s default package system does not, so I do not have high of expectations. I really like that its default desktop environment is XFCE as I have wanted to see a nice/cool XFCE setup for some time without having to do it myself. Kate OS is also targeted at working on minimal hardware so their packages are compiled as i486. I will be nukeing this on the 64bit system that I am trying it out on after I get a good feel for it.

Here is a screenshot of the download in firefox. It seems like I have well…. forever, until the download finishes. Those good ole negative transfer speeds! haha
