Installing SuSE Linux

I'm trying to get on some type of bandwagon and install Linux on a really old machine that I have built. (Trying to decide if I want to be a programmer for the rest of my life or at least 'till I retire or something). So I decided I better be more up to date on a few things.

I'm installing SuSE Linux 9.3 (German acronym:Software- und System-Entwicklung... properly pronounced /susə/, but often pronounced /suzi/ source: Wikipedia).

It's taking a while since I am doing a network install from University of Utah mirror. My comcast connection is fast. The big hang up is the really slow computer because it has to install each package after it downloads it. (AKA it doesn't download the whole program at once)

I'm installing based on a sweet tutorial that I found on It basically shows you how you can setup the operating system with a web server, mail server, dns server, ftp server, pop3 server, and site statistics. I mostly want the web server and ftp server, but the others will be fun to play around with.

Job Search

Well, like Gustavo, I'm looking for another job. It's going pretty well. I actually went to visit a place called SOS Technical and talked with a guy named Rob. He's got a blog about searching for jobs and making resume's and stuff. Check it out. I'm working part time right now in a technical support call center. I actually really enjoy it. But since it is part time, I need something to do during the rest of the time that I have this summer.

Funny thing also. I saw on the news yesterday a story about a couple of ducks that got fell down a storm drain. Read an online version of the story. It made me chuckle a bit.

I just checked out my buddy Gustavo's blog. He lives across the hall from me and is a really funny, cool guy. If you want to see his blog click here, eh...
