Yes, that's our hamster.Â Sleeping in his litterbox.Â I mean, lazy I can understand.Â Believe me, I understand lazy.Â But never in my life have I said: "You know, I'm on the toilet, and I want to go to sleep, what the hell, I'll just go to sleep right here."Â Hasn't happened yet.
Tucker, you're an inspiration to us all.

Last time I talked about a good way to preview photos. But when I started to edit raw photos, I ran into a problem. There's a program called DCRaw that plugs into Gimp and lets you load raw photos, including Canon's new raw format. Good. There's a GUI for that program, called UFRaw. Even better. And GQView will take the active photo and send it straight to Gimp for you. Fantastic. But here's the problem: the photo looks like it was dipped in mud.

I figured it out before, but it doesn't work since I upgraded.Â One more reason why it's not a good idea to install a beta OS.Â Anyway, since I didn't post my solution last time, I had to redo my research.Â The good news is I found a much better system: GQview.Â I can use Ubuntu's automated installation program, Synaptic, but it installs an older version of GQview that doesn't do what I want.Â So I did it the hard way: go to

Following on my Day of Computer Games (which ended up fine; I played Pirates! on my desktop), today was supposed to be catch-up day.Â I installed a bunch of shelves in the storage room and put stuff on them.Â That may not sound like fun, but I actually enjoy organizing things.Â While I was at it, I came across a few old comics I'd been saving:

With this post I'm also beginning a new Linux category.Â I've had so many adventures with Linux already, it occurs to me that someone else might benefit from the stuff I've figured out.Â I thought of putting all my Linux tips on a single page, but really the blog mode is better.Â If you want to just read my Linux posts, go down to the "Categories" box on the lower right and click "Linux."Â Duh.

No kidding.Â The first domestic hamsters were bred by a zoology professor at the University of Jerusalem in the 1930's.Â All Golden Hamsters (a.k.a. Syrian Hamsters) in Europe are descended from the initial batch found by this professor in the Syrian desert.
