I have changed my header graphics and the CSS code once again and it looks a bit more stylish, with the simpler bevelled title graphic. I need to keep it simple and have a stylish looking website, with not too many graphics so that is loads quickly. I am posting this HD video of the Earth from space, as I thought it was a beautiful video and only a few people get to see something like this first hand, and I wish I was one of them. Being in the International Space Station orbiting the planet at 19,000 miles an hour would be incredible.

I have upgraded my Linux Mint 9 system with kernel 2.6.36 and it built in about 20 minutes, whilst I was on IRC helping out some people on the Linux Mint support channel. I have not used IRC for ages and it is good to be able to help people with their computer problems. The annoying apt bug with Ubuntu 10.10 is a bad one, maybe the best solution is to revert to the version of apt from Ubuntu 9.10 and use that. I keep having problems with the Update Manager in Ubuntu 10.10 and that would be related to that problem. Typing sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade seems to work though. Hopefully it will be fixed for the next Ubuntu release coming soon, as this is quite a deal breaker not being able to install security updates.
