Stupid Mistakes Sometimes

Monday, Jan 27, 2020
I’ve been trying to switch from certbot to for a bit now and kept getting errors. As it turns out I kept typing deth,org instead of and with my vision I didn’t notice the difference. One of the downsides of touch typing for so many years is that I learn to trust finger position too much. Once I got that sorted out works fine. I never had any problems with certbot other than when letsencrypt first came out.

Trying Out KDE4

Tuesday, Aug 19, 2008
KDE 4.1 became available in the FreeBSD ports so I figured I’d give it a try. Some stuff is missing but I like what I am seeing so far. I have been using it for the past week or so with no problems and no crashes or anything like that. It’s been stable enough that I could use it as my primary setup. The biggest thing that it’s missing are some of the customization options.

Still Using DesktopBSD

Tuesday, Apr 24, 2007
I’m still using DesktopBSD and still pretty happy with it. Actually it makes using the computer a lot of fun again. It’s fun learning something new and fun remembering and relearning all the different things I remember reading about UNIX. The way things are done are just more interesting to me. The things I had read are coming back to me and making a bit more sense now. I wish I had done this 10 years ago.

Trying Out FreeBSD

Thursday, Mar 15, 2007
I’ve had no updates in a bout a week because I’ve been busy installing and setting up DesktopBSD which is based on FreeBSD. I’ve also been reading through the FreeBSD handbook. The best FreeBSD handbook is the best documentation for an operating system I’ve ever read. I like this operating system. I’ve only used windows once this week and that was to check out something that was flash which is no big deal.
