I was again not able to install Debian on the Virtual PC running on the eMac. But this time I tried using the video settings taken from the system information in Win2K. X worked better but would still not work perfectly.

I am building a new web space using Dreamweaver MMX and hosting it at yahoo small business web hosting. I also have my own moveable type blog on this site. I made an index page and one internal page now and started the blog. I will use the site for creative design but will stick with a minimalist style both technically and graphically. I might also have time to explore the server side technologies I can use with this hosting deal. But it will also be used for creative academic writing and has a very cute and already creative domain name. It is at http://www.cyborgcitizen.org/. Now isn't that a creative name? Ok may be not but it sure wasn't just my idea for a name. I borrowed it from various scholars of science and technology studies in particular Donna Haraway. I also used the creative commons license to copyright it and this is my first use of this license.

Getting more memory for the Intellistation statistical workstation from ebay.I did a little surfing of ebay and found an offer of 640MB of PC133 RAM. I would then have about 996 MB of RAM in my statistical workstation. I should stop using this workstation for web mastering and make it a more dedicated machine for only statistics. Speaking of which I have some SAS homework to do for this week and this coming weekend and the beginning of next week. I also was able to install SAS 9.1.3 on my eMac on the Win2K partition. SAS we get for free from school will only work on UNIX or Windows. That is why to get SAS working on my Macintosh I need to install it on the Win2K operating system running in Virtual PC on my eMac. Also in statistics I have to prepare an hour long talk on using R for our local linux users group. I should try to write the basic outline tonight but also have some statistics homework grading to do today.

Setting up regular book marks on a new computerI booted up the new Intellistation to test web pages I was working on this past week. I started in Debian with Mozilla to add bookmarks to sites I control the content for. In other words I bookmarked my own sites and other sites where I am a web master, web designer, web content writer, etc. etc.. This is routine task I have done many times.

Almost all machines are up to date with the right software
I updated my WinXP with dot net stuff. I also updated my Debian 3.1 software using dselect and apt. These were both on the Intellistation. I also updated my old eMac in its new location in the office. The PSP is running the latest OS. The iPod and the Palm are also up to date. I think only the Fedora and the Win NT mahine may need to be updated at the moment. I believe the Win2k on the eMac is up to date but I wil just check that again. I should also use my new found knowledge of apt directories to up date my Debian 3.0 laptop.
