Long Time Away, or Who Is Vanessa Hudgens?

Well, not actually away. Just didn't have much time to post. I had to pass two more exams to continue my education at University, and had pretty much work to do (soon to announce that project here, just waiting for my client to register domain name and rent a server), so I was pretty busy with all that. And there are also great changes in my private life (not too inspiring, but I'm trying to be optimistic), so I should confess, it was a hard time.

Anyway, I'm here now with lots of thing to tell you about. Be prepared for plenty of posts here. Here comes a brief summary of what is coming next.

Gone Ubuntu

I've been a die-hard Gentoo geek for 2 something years, but... Yes, you see it. :)

I'd probably never change my distro, but there were several things that made me think of it first and forced me to try a bunch of them later. I've seen FreeBSD in action and was amazed. I ruined my Gentoo system and had to get working system ASAP, so I've chosen the best available distro. The best available, not the best distro. I'm not too satisfied with Ubuntu.

I got CentOS 5.0 DVD and I'll try it in some near future.

Gone subversion

I didn't need any version control system for ages, but finally I've grown out of just everyday backups. I need to track work done, I need to know what exactly and when did I change in my code, I need to put milestones and track bugs. The latter is too much for SVN on it's own, but trac perfectly fits my current requirements. I even think of running trac in my sandbox and giving my clients access to it, but I don't know how to limit access for different users and afraid that tracking tickets could take too much time.

Gone single

Alas. Love ins't enough to stay together. We tried hard, she even kept trying when I gave up, but still there were too much thing we couldn't take over. Odd feeling, you know. You work so hard to be able to rent an apartment that would be a place for two of you, and suddenly you don't need it all and you don't know what to do with all of it.

Anyway, you're great, Annie, and I those 6 months were just wonderful.

Almost get employed

East is East and West is West, and I'm damned for freelance forever and ever, but I found a forum post about that vacancy and decided to try it out. My experience is more than sufficient for that work. I could become tech support engineer at local web hosting company, but they decided to hire a student (yes, I'm student, too, but I've got my last year in University, while he's second or third year one) with smaller experience, smaller ambitions and smaller salary.

I don't blame them, I'd do the same if I were them. And it's not the right job for me. Although I could do a lot for that company, they don't really need that right now, so they did the right thing.

Bud, God! It was in the middle of August, when it was hot like Hell and they do have an air conditioning in their office!

Got to give my code away

It was the first time when I had to stop working on a project to take a more important one and needed to prepare my code for other developer. Interesting experience and definitely I'm going to share it. Later.

Vanessa Hudgens is an Actress/singer from a Disney channel movie called High School Musical that is really popular in north america right now. She's also dating one of the movie's stars a guy by the name of Zac Efron. She's released one cd and a new one probably in the works for like 2008. No I don't watch these movies but I have a cousin who's big in to high school musical, and hsm2. So I hope that clears up any questions.

Ah, thanks. I've just heard that name some time ago, and now there's quite a buzz. Her name is the top search keyword accroding to wordtracker, and even SPAM offerring Vanessa Hudgens naked pics. Somewhat odd, I can't remember such a buzz for a while.

me neither. Personally I could care less about what the latest hot "Flavor" in hollywood is. Neither of the singers seem to possess any kind of real talent. I can't remember a time either. The buzz is because she mailed nude pics to some guy at the kids channel Nickelodeon and the guy leaked them to the net. Second part is Disney's descision to stand by her after the controversy when most people claim that they wouldn't. Remember the world claim should be in quotes because you know as well as I do that any company making money of a certain star whether they made a really really really stupid airhead type descsion or not would stand by their bankable stars. Disney's not about to let go of a hot property like Vanessa. So that's why they stood by her. Remember this is my opinion, but if you think about it the facts do semi support my decsion. Personally I think she's a freaking no talent airhead to do this, but I have to hold my tongue as a cousin whom I love, really likes HSM. btw you're welcomed.

err can almost barely remember a time when singers were more talented then they are today. That's why you hear me listen to a lot of Punk, Pop Punk, emo, and mostly alternative rock. A lot of the time the singers are multi talented. I.E Songwriters, and multi instrumentalists. I hate today's pop music. Hate really only scratches the surface. Anyways you're welcome again.
