Post 1229 - Hurray (For Me!)

Around 9 pm tonight, the phone rang. My brother-in-law needed help printing a document on their computer. Turns out the new Ubuntu didn't overtly support their brand of printer.

Spent time on the ubuntu forums and the Brother website. Turns out a couple of simple downloads of rpm files (whatever they are) and 2 .deb files which I installed, was all that was necessary. My sister didn't see me sweat.

Returning to the city Saturday afternoon. Have a dell laptop there whose wireless isn't working. Will try to get that working yet again, but not before I get Patricia to leave the house for a few hours while I turn the air blue with invective. It's a rite of passage.

I've earned it.
