Saturday was Jenny's birthday - Tigger and Lincoln came over, we ate cake and played boardgames... apparently that's our thing now. :)
Sunday we went over to Jenny's folks' place for home-made chili and presents. Jenny's dad took us out to see the new Indiana Jones movie, which was awesome. It was silly, but a lot of fun, and still felt like I was watching a continuation of the series (even if it has been almost 20 years...).
Jenny got a shiny new MP3 player from her dad, so I spent the next couple of days ripping CDs, making playlists and setting everything up for her. This in turn reminded me of how infuriating Windows can be.
A little while back Jenny's dad gave me her sister's old laptop when she got a new one for her birthday. It works all right, but I've been curious about giving Linux a shot and am thinking about installing it on there to try it out. I just checked out a book from the library which has a Linux demo that runs inside Windows, and I'll try that out first, see how I like it and go from there.
I also have an old laptop I got from my parents which I'm not really using for anything. I've found a couple of "light" Linux distributions that should be able to run on it, so if I end up loving this whole Linux thing, getting it up and running on this old machine might be a fun project.
