technical clothing

my physio suggested I try a compression shirt to help support my hypomobile back/shoulders/arms. Actual compression shirts are some sixty quid each and come in polyester, polyester or polyester. My skin doesn't like me wearing plastic, so I picked up this cotton/lycra wicking base layer instead. It's still providing compression support, but it was only 25 notes and doesn't make my skin crawl.

Also features natty arm stripes for extra street cred.

macos/linux blargh

(viewed 1035 times)
So, I installed linux on my iBook. Went swimmingly. Sound, GL desktop, networking, bluetooth, etc - everything perfect and running fast as you like - snappy, even, for a G3-800 (with the single exception of g/qsynaptics not working quite right - although the touchpad still worked fine, I couldn't do fancy multitouch/scroll stuff)

Until. I need Skype, because just about everyone I know insists on using it despite it being proprietry, and shit. No PPC-Linux build of skype available. Force-architecture install doesn't work. Bugger.

So, am now back on OSX, back to swearing at my file manager 'cos it won't do even the most basic things. ffs.
