When it wasnâ€™t cloudy, that is. Being directly in the Sunshine it was warm and nice. If the breeze hadnâ€™t been just a bit too cool it would have been a take-all-your-clothes-off afternoon. Unfortunately it didnâ€™t last too long. Suppose I should get used to crappy Wx for a few months.
Got out of the house awhile by going to one Credit Union and taking all the money out of my savings and taking it to another Credit Union to make a Truck payment. So the first payment on the new loan is in and done. Now to set up BillPay on the 1st and future payments should get in about 20 days early. (I really hate being late with any payments!) Think Iâ€™ll do this for about a year, and, if the interest rates donâ€™t go up much, see if theyâ€™d be interested in refinancing the Caravan. Wouldnâ€™t mind having all my loans in one place.
Not much else going on today. Been â€œplayingâ€ with the â€œServerâ€ Iâ€™m trying to learn to set up. Tried installing a program called â€œMediatomb,â€ which seems to install, but it wonâ€™t do anything when I click on the menu entry. Opens a browser but canâ€™t find what itâ€™s looking for. I donâ€™t know why.
So I installed â€œXBMCâ€ but couldnâ€™t really tell you why except that this machine is for playing. That works so well Iâ€™m thinking of installing it on my desktop just for the ability to stop having to smb:// my NAS drives. Still looking into how to make a Media Server of some type so everyone in the house can watch movies/tv anywhere in the house.
And Iâ€™m still having trouble joining my Linux machine to our Windows network. Which is slightly strange as our NASâ€™ are powered by a version of Linux. Is learning new things supposed to keep me young, or wear me down with frustration?
