So finally got my new laptop, thanks to my employer, I am the user of a more modern hardware with good speed both on the processor, ram and storage speed. There are still some customization to be done, since the original order was targeting a 1 TB IDE and a 250 GB SSD. After some options came around, I end up with a 250GB and a 250 IDE disk.
The laptop is a Dell Latitude E6410, with some average specs. The point wasn’t get a state of the art, but just a few months of productivity. Plus the performance goes way up when I am running ArchLinux. I installed Archbang, followed some Youtube videos with OpenBox, and then installed KDE 5.
The good thing of getting a not so cutting edge laptop is that most of the hardware worked. Even the special keys, wifi, and such. Still think it was a pleasant install, and the performance was great, even the keyboard felt nice.
The biggest To-Do right now is finding a harddisk caddy to enclose the original IDE disk and have the double disk on the laptop in spare of the DVD unit. For the moment I am using an external USB-enclosing disk.
I’ll write some update if I can get it finally done with the internal one:
Before it becomes too late, I want to make my first post of the year, hope more will come and start getting more content in this blog.
First thing my phone showed me as I was waking up was a pretty bad news, LeBron James won’t be playing any games for the near future. Mainly because of a knee and back soreness that will have the king in suit for the start of the year.
A lot has been talked about LBJ and his ‘soreness’ and have been question that there is some friction between him and management. Last night I was listening to Jalen Rose during his show at Grantland when he mentioned a peculiar play where LBJ seemed to be a bit fed up and shoots a 3pt from midcourt area. Hence deciding to forget the play and just do his own personal in-game horse play. I tend to agree about it sent a signal specially after trying to do the same on the very next play.
Then the news article about him stating that he could walk off the team if things don’t start to look better, it means at least that he has a Championship or bust mentality.
It’s now clear that he is taking this seasons seriously and he wants to see some heads rolling before moving forward. Varejao’s injury might have been the drop that spill everything and without his favorite playmate, he is finding himself with a team on crutches.
Sure, is still early on the season, but this is exactly where decisions need to be made. Proof is the Rondo, and Josh Smith trades that gave Dallas and Houston a makeover. If someone big don’t replace Varejao soon, the Cavs might be facing many challenges from all angles.
I think that the Cavs will have to make something soon to keep Lebron happy, maybe dropping out of the 8th seeds will put the fire he needs for the administration to respond.
