I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

I knew was going to come in handy one day

So I've been moving over to Ubuntu yesterday and today. Right now I'm
listening to music via the Last.FM player, and doing, well, pretty much
all the bits and pieces I'd normally be doing. With one major

Very much enjoying it actually, and all the command line stuff takes me
back to 1993 when I was using DOS every day. Yesterday the only thing
holding me back from installing Ubuntu was that I had to move 30GB odd
of music to external storage so I could easily move it to my new
install, but windows being windows, I was experiencing (and I'm really
not kidding) 31kb ps data transfer from my hard drive to my external.

BING! Just use my mp3tunes locker to down-sync when I install. After
that decision, as you can see from the pics, I'm using the Oboe sync
software to download and synchronise 30GB of music that I have stored in
my (free) unlimited mp3tunes locker. It looks like it's going to take
about 30 hours... God, I love the internet.

I want to have big balls like you but i'm scared. Scared that the major two things I hold dear to my computing life won't work, Photoshop and Counterstrike.. (obviously the internets is dear too but I know that works)

Pah. that's no excuse, they both work. :) search ubuntuforums for a howto.

I don't "need" photoshop anymore anyway - showfoto (or picasa) does everything I need in terms of photo editing. Admittedly, I don't do the kind of artworking I used to, but that's still perfectly possible with Cinepaint or the GIMP.
