Revolution OS part 1

Clean Up Ubuntu Grub Boot Menu After Upgrades

No need to delete those lines to simplify the GRUB menu. The easier way
to keep only newest lines is to open the menu.lst (gksu gedit
/boot/grub/menu.lst), find "#howmany=all" and change it to
"#howmany=1″. Then run "sudo update-grub" to update changes. Next time,
only newest kernel lines will be shown.

Yes, you can uninstall Vista and restore your Win XP boot manager as well...

Boot your computer in to Windows XP.

Ensure you have the Vista DVD in the DVD drive.

Go to “Start” and “Run”. Type "cmd" & Enter.

Type “e:\boot\bootsect /nt52 c:" - Press Enter

(without quotes, and replacing e: with the drive letter of your Vista
DVD & replacing c: with whatever is your XP partition drive).

***Ofcourse before doing this keep a backup of you data just in case
the boot manager gets hosed. It shouldnt, I have done this many times
and it will restore the boot manager.

Long delay; Eco called them "interstices".

Ahhh.. I am know I must be a fucking boring blogger. Yep I deserved the title.

The gaps in between. Short intervals in life we don't even give a shit to register & store in those nerve synapses. But we ignore the fact that they are the cement that keep our otherwise fragmented reality. beyond the routine, beyond the mechanical existence, beyond the bloody excuse we call life, it is these moments that we submit to eternal oblivion that glues us together & in fact are the "only" moments where we live.

Umberto Eco once referred to them as interstices. Artists like Tarantino have soaked them on celluloid too (remember Pulp Fiction: it is all about interstices ).
