For anyone who doesn’t know yet, Google has announced a new free webpage hosting service. They will give you 100MB to host your site. It comes complete with some very very simple webpage building tools, but its enough to get you started. I, being the loyal Google customer I am, have already created mine. I’m not giving you the link to it though, because its rather sad looking right now. I think I’m going to change a lot of it.
In other good news, Gentoo has released their version of the 2.6.17 kernel. Or for any Gentoo-ers who read this, kernel-2.6.17-gentoo-r4. Tomorrow, hopefully, I will be downloading it through portage, compiling, and installing it. Allowing me to move my computer off of this table and onto a real desk upstairs thanks to the miracle of wireless internet.
Finally, I plan on learning ruby as well python. Ruby looks like fun and I think I will enjoy it. Maybe even more than python, we’ll see though. I don’t think ruby comes standard on a Gentoo install, so there is another thing I’ll be downloading and installing tomorrow. I have a copy of Linux Journal with a small introduction into Ruby and Ruby-on-Rails. Using that I’m going to fool around and write some small, mainly useless programs. From there, I’ll just see what blossoms.
Enjoy the Penguins!
