Had a great fruitful weekend.
Finally setup a server for www.singh.im,
setup personal Redmine, with Postgres as the backend.
from Linux Mint 10 to Dream Studio 12.04 and am loving it, so much so
that I seeded a torrent for its ISO. It's 2.7 GB! Much larger than
Ubuntu's 600 MB, but totally worth it since it comes preinstalled with
all kinds of media related software, which was a pain to get working in
With this distro (based on Ubuntu 12), I can finally not feel ashamed of
using a Linux desktop. It looks good, feels snappy, and is very keyboard
friendly. I used to miss Windows particularly
because of Windows' ability to be a keyboard friendly GUI. Yeah, I know, Linux Desktop from any distro can be very easily configured to do what you want, but I want it out of the box in a distro.
Finally, I got hold of Sri Guru Granth Sahib's line-by-line English translation and transliteration in a .doc file (thanks to the leads from the announcer at Medford Gurudwara). I
hope to start work on making that amazing work available in a single
HTML file, with search functionality built-in.
