Happy Leap Day!

Just a quick post to celebrate “Leap Day”, a day that only happens once every four years.  That alone merits a toast, or at least a post.  I feel for those that have birthdays on this day though.  On the other hand, when they are eighty years old, they can honestly say they’re celebrating their twentieth birthday?

Saturday, I built this “log rack” to better stack all the wood (that we haven’t burned this winter due to the severe lack of cold weather this year) – See image below and my Flickr site for some pictures from this shoot.  I then went out with a friend and shot some more B&W around downtown Fort Worth, Texas and then went and hung out w/some friends in Denton for the evening.

The next phase of my Linux upgrade – getting Audacious to work – was a royal BEATING.  Since I patched it, I had to recompile it and all the plugins too.  This meant having to go get all the development-versions of a bunch of libraries, some of which took a while to ascertain just what they were.  Building Audacious itself wasn’t that bad, but all the plugins was a pain, since each one needs different libraries.  One thing I learned was that OSS4 was NOT one of them.  After thinking I needed that for one of the plugins, it silently blacklisted all my sound modules and left me with a silent computer – not good!  This took a few hours to track down and fix.  Anyway, it’s all back working again, even after I again removed Pulseaudio and went back to Alsa.
