The tales of an old man

Quite often on Tweaked for your Pleasure I write about things that happens in my life and this is one of these articles.

As I was visiting a town which I am not going to name as I am sure I will get a flood of fans going there, I had quite an interesting chat on the bus coming back. At the bus stop I was sitting on one of the benches listening to South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut on the Sony PlayStation Portable when this old man walks overs.

As it was raining, I picked my bag up that I had with me and moved to the side so that the old man could sit down. However, this man refuses to sit down as the bench was wet at which point he asks me is that the “latest iPhone”. Smiling, I simply said that it was a PSP – a small gaming device.

While I can not remember what we chatted about for the first five minutes or so we finally got chatting about time. Originally he started talking about how it is going to get dark soon. It was at that time he said, you know the sun controls our day and night. I then replied saying it all related to our orbits and the speed of it.

The old man only stopped to think for just a few seconds and went true and then went on to explain the science behind it. Having debated with him, he then went on about what is happening right now in the United Kingdom mostly about jobs.

Having ask me what was the last job I had, I thought to myself that the last time I was physically employed (not including freelance etc) was at New College Stamford. So I said to him I was a teacher for a short bit teaching PHP programming language.

The old man only replied talking about PHP itself and how he used to do some PHP programming for a website he had online. Out of interest, I asked about what website he used to run and his answer was simple – just a simple little blog.

Wanting to find out more about the blog, I asked about it but he went on to explain about how he only had six jobs in his day and one was being in the armed services. He went on to explain how he got into the armed service with military science.

At this time the bus pulled in and we all got on. The old man just sat quietly to himself listening to something on a device I could not see. Having stopped at all the other bus stops other than the one I live at, I decided to pop my head phones back in and listen to the end of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Having not felt the bus stop anymore, the bus pulled into the place I live I looked up and the old man was gone.

For just a few minutes if I had to place a name on that old man, I would have said me.

ReactOS – Just how good are you right now ?

As of writting this blog post that ReactOS is in 0.3.6 (Alpha) and already, it looks like it will become a good operating system. The reason I will call it a good operating system is the fact that it is an open source clone of Windows. Now, I ain’t one to like Windows but lets face it, most people use it so it is good for something and it is about time someone decided to clone it.
If everything goes well then ReactOS might even replace Windows one day but enough about a time today, lets focus on the now. ReactOS is being designed so that ultimately it will run any Windows Software and hardware. Right now, it is doing an okay job.

I reget nothing

Often, I have asked that do I reget ever moving over to Linux ages ago and do I ever have any problems with it, and I can now safely say that I do not reget moving over to Linux.My Linux Desktop

I first started using Linux back in the year 2001 when my computer crushed and for some random reason, Windows would not install back onto it. It was then that my sister installed Linux onto the PC and from that point on, it was I got used too. However, I would not say that I have not had problems with Linux but I have now learnt how to deal with most issues and I wouldn’t say that I don’t use any other operating system as one this laptop I have Mandriva Linux and Windows Vista Ultimate both installed.
