Upgrade and Update

As you can tell by the wonderful countdown counter to the right, Ubuntu 7.10 has come out. Named Gutsy Gibbon, Ubuntu 7.10 is effectively saying "GG" to Microsoft. I'm going to upgrade right now. Then, I'll have fun telling you all about the new features, and what is awesome, and what I don't even realize. Psyched for the desktop effects, I could only get them working for a moment in 7.04. This will be awesome!

On the other hand, I'm having some issues with OS X. It still asks for the root device, and turning off my hard drives doesn't work. Nor does booting from the CD in safe mode, or booting ignoring the configuration file, which I tried. After researching some more, I may have to turn one of my hard drives from SATA mode to AHCI mode, which I don't really want to do, because that would mean turning on Raid again, which I like off. And, the probability of fucking over my computer is really, really good. Soooo.... perhaps I'll just wait on that one.... for now... and see if I can get something else to work.

GG, here I come!!
