As my Twitter followers will know I’ve been dabbling with Linux this week. I’ve never really had the need before, but a friend kindly gave me a dead laptop, to which I attached an old external LCD screen, keyboard and mouse and installed “crunchbang Linux” on a 4GB thumbdrive. This has given our house a new kitchen “info-station”. Kinda like the smart fridge idea everyone talked about a few years ago only smarter cos rather than knowing what’s in your fridge, you can facebook easily on it! :) So… gone is the paper calendar by the phone… now we have google calendar, which we can access from our PCs / devices, including my shiny newish iPod touch. Finally, one version of the truth and less To Do lists around the place too!
