For some reason, LJ gave me these three posts from long ago on my friends' page today:

Time flies by [Jan. 6th, 2007|09:10 am]
Happy New Year everybody! I hope the new year brings all of us peace, contentment and much happiness. 2007 just snuck up on me and I didn't even see it coming. 2006 was a good year. In no particular order:...

Not your average "Dedicated" quilter ... yet! [Dec. 13th, 2006|04:08 pm]
According to a survey conducted this year, quilting is more popular than ever with more than 27 million quilters in the U.S.! I know I didn't take this survey, so that makes me quilter number 27,000,001. The survey also came...

ಜಪಾನಿನ ಕಥೆಗಳು - ೧ : ಅವೊತೊ ಫುಜಿತ್ಸುನ [Nov. 19th, 2006|05:26 pm]
೧೯ನೆ ಶತಕದ ಅಂತ್ಯಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಬ್ರಿಟಿಷ್ ಮ್ಯೂಸಿಯಂನ ಪರವಾಗಿ ಜಪಾನಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾತ್ರೆ ಕೈಗೊಂಡ ರಿಚರ್ಡ್ ಗಾರ್ಡನ್ ಸ್ಮಿತ್ ಎಂಬಾತನು ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಕೇಳಿ ಸಂಗ್ರಹಿಸಿದ ಕಥೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲವನ್ನು ಪುಸ್ತಕವಾಗಿ ೧೯೦೮ರಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಿದನು. ಅವುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲವನ್ನು ಆರಿಸಿ ಅನುವಾದಿಸಿ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಓದುಗರಿಗೆ ಪರಿಚಯಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಮೊದಲನೆಯ ಕಂತಾಗಿ ಅವೊತು ಫುಜಿತ್ಸುನ ಎಂಬ ಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕನ ಕಥೆಯನ್ನು ಅನುವಾದಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಮೇಲಿನ ಕೊಂಡಿಯನ್ನು ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ ಇಡಿಯ ಕಥೆಯನ್ನು ಓದಬಹುದು.

Ubuntu - first impressions [Nov. 3rd, 2006|09:04 am]
It took a few hours over the weekend, but I now have converted the old desktop to run Ubuntu 6.06 (from Fedora Core 3). The procedure was fairly painless - once I disabled the onboard floppy disk controller in the BIOS; apparently disconnecting the floppy disk drive isn't enough - but I daresay you'll find the installation experience different from the other distributions (atleast as they were the last time I tried them).
