Latest Stuff

I went to "Art all night" today. A none profit event in Trenton where everyone who likes can contribute one piece of art. It's a tiny little festival with live music and stuff for kids. I didn't have time to get anything printed, so I simply took a piece out of my living room and brought it over.
Also today, after a long abstinence, I went mobile again. I purchased a nice 14" laptop I can basically take anywhere to work on images or more serious things like my research. It will definitely increase my output. I also didn't use MS Windows at home since years. Now I have this fancy Windows Vista which seems to suck RAM like crazy (1GB is barely enough). Anybody has experience with Ubuntu? This looks like a reasonable operating system.
Something else that just came to my mind: Tomorrow is Gay Pride Parade (Christopher Street Day) in New York. That must be very colorful. Maybe I'll go and photograph that.

I try Ubuntu on my laptot, but it didn't work 'cause of the graphic chip (ATI mobility Radeon X700 128MB). I am a little disapointet, cause I thought it works on any system. Anyway, when I get the next chance to try linux on my laptop, I'll try it again.
I read about Graphic & Sound solutions for ubuntu, and its time to say "adieu" to windows. the time with you was nice, but its over now!

I can see the driver for the X700 on the ATI website, though.

its not a driver problem. its a black screen problem. I cant change the garphic settings of ubuntu or install a new driver because there is nothing I can see. and I tested a lot of linux packages. I can rember that Carlso installed ubuntu on Askas laptop as the second OS without any problems.
maybe I am damned and I must use Microsoft software till I die! a horrible imagination
