Tala Ko

Care for some tea?

Posted on: Monday, 22 September 2008

This is officially the first Tala Ko blog post written on my netbook. :)

While I’m not wireless at the moment, I did manage to compile drivers for the wireless card using this guide. I was a little apprehensive at first, because I don’t often use the command line. I was afraid that I was going to break something. But after reading related forum posts (I <3 the Ubuntu community), I was reassured, and I dove into the command line just… under ten minutes ago!

I know the wifi’s working because it detected three wireless networks within the building – none of them offering free access, hence the gray LAN cable twisting near my toes.

I think I’ll now download Cheese, to see if I can get the webcam working. :)

I was thinking of getting Smart Bro Prepaid, but the feedback hasn’t been all that great. Wonder how my roommate and I should get Internet access once we’ve moved out of our relatives’ homes.

Other Tala: our office IT department is thinking of enforcing its policy that Internet Explorer be the only browser in use. :( I’m thinking, though, that our department can get some exceptions. As the web developing team, it should make sense that we get to use as many different browsers as possible, to make sure that our work is accessible to as many people as possible.

In any case, IT won’t crack down without hearing from the folks at the office first. Poor guys.
