Just Don't Call Him a Monkey

Well, I finally upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10, “Gutsy Gibbon.”

Yawn Maybe it's because I still use FVWM as a window manager, but I don't see a lot of difference between this and 7.04. OK, they've upgraded to Thunderbird 2.0, and changed the executable name from mozilla-thunderbird to thunderbird, which messed up my FVWM configuration script. There have also been enough changes to the Gnome Toolkit that my venerable copy of the old “Electric Eyes” image viewer doesn't work, even after I recompiled it. Fortunately I was quickly able to find a substitute image viewer, qiv, which is just about as light-weight and serves my need to read web comics without actually going to the web page.

There's also an updated version of the Gimp, but Penguin Pete has already told you about that.

So, nothing all that interesting. Which, in a way, is quite comforting.

And it leaves me plenty of time for tonight's Kansas — Oklahoma State game, which is on National TV everywhere except here, where we are going to be graced with Maryland — Boston College.

Rock Chalk, y'all.
