Just for fun

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

I was experimenting with the Hardy beta again today, putting together a remote music station with Consonance, a few terminal applications and the fuzzyflakes screensaver as the desktop window. When it was over and done with, it looked a lot like this.

Catastrophe struck soon after I took that screenshot. I inadvertently removed the xorg package when pulling out rxvt-unicode, then couldn’t get a terminal working again. I still can’t jump to console screens in Ubuntu on this machine, and I had already built an autologin, so I was kind of stuck. Since I have plans for this machine beyond just another Ubuntu music station, I decided to call it the end.

Oh well. Easy come, easy go.

    I guess I could have, but I already knew it was temporary, and it wasn’t worth the work to fix. Good point though. I probably could have made it into educational challenge, instead of wiping it out so blithely.
