Today marks the end of May 2007...and, possibly more important, the end of generation three (lol). Unfortunately, I didn't finish shading this page due to a certain younger sibling pestering me about how I'm taking too long on the computer (I only shaded the castle and half of the bottom panel)...but it's still a decent page nevertheless.
Now, some of you may be wondering whether or not that is the same Yasu, since we saw Yasu die a couple pages ago. The answer is both yes and no. Is it still Yasu? Yes. Is it the same Yasu? No. I realize it may be paradoxical, but it can make sense if you make it make sense...I think.
Actually, I was forced to waste another $3 for a bottle of black ink, because I accidentally mixed my old bottle with water *massages temples*. However, this has taught me that the brand of ink does matter. My old bottle had thicker ink which tended to scratch the paper, but created more crisp lines. This new bottle is more viscous and the ink flows out very quickly, thus making thicker lines (with an occasional blob of ink). I suppose this means I have to grow accustomed to this new ink now -_- Who would have though the ink would make this much of a difference? I mean, I used to think that ink is simply liquid and black...
I've also been customizing my laptop...again. I'm becoming a real computer nerd. Anyway, now I set up Debian Etch with Ratpoison. I found the name Ratpoison to be hilarious...can anyone figure out what it does? Think about it... Rat = Rodent = Mouse. Figured it out? Ratpoison...kills rodents...mice are rodents...a certain part of a typical computer is named after a small animal... Heh, definitely a computer nerd joke.
Anyway, Ratpoison is a mouseless desktop environment on Unix. It's supposed to be the fastest stable desktop environment (other than a plain terminal), because it doesn't use icons, menus, panels, windows, or any of those other fancy GUI tools. It's a sacrifice of eyecandy for simplicity and speed. Anyway, I grew found of it and rebuilt my laptop to rely solely on this environment instead of the more popular Gnome/KDE, Fluxbox, and Xfce, which most casual Linux users choose.
Ew, I have to stop talking about my laptop. I also have to stop rebuilding the damn thing every time I find something new to try. Moving back to ROL (well, it's now going to be called 'Project ROL')...generation four begins sometime next week. It could be Monday...it could be Friday. I don't know. I'm giving myself a little flexibility this time after updating at least 20 pages during May.
