Today I'd like to share of the things I've done so far to "purty it up".

Over the past couple of years Jim van Os, a psychiatrist at the University of Maastricht who investigates the effect of marijuana on people's brains, and several others have been building the case that, for some teenagers, smoking cannabis leads to serious mental health problems in later life, including schizophrenia.

And with cannabis use among teenagers on the rise, the age at first use falling, and the strength of cannabis on the up, he says the figure can only increase.

you’ll have to pardon me while i wax anthropomorhpic for a moment. why is it that robots, designed or imagined, always exist solely to fulfill a purpose or pleasure for human beings? don’t they have feelings too? maybe it’s about time we made some robots whose sole purpose is to hook up with other robots, get a little freaky, and make some robot progeny.

I found the GNOME desktop more appealing than KDE until I found Mandrakelinux 10. Mandrake looked good to me, from its fonts to its slide bars. On the functional side, it had some wonderful system administration tools, graphical and centralized. But for some reason Mandrake 10 didn't find my home wireless network. That led me to search for alternatives. I discovered PCLinuxOS, a free LiveCD distribution originally based on Mandrake.
