Recently I stumbled upon some blogs from people who want to live 'Google free'. Concerned with their privacy they are looking for ways to ditch google.
I was just wondering if it is at all possible. Think: google mail (still one of the best, I think), google search engine, google chrome...
So, what do you think? Is it possible to live without Google? Let me know what you think.

New Year came and went. This time didn't make any resolutions 'cause the ones from last year are still to be implemented
My computer underwent few changes of the operating system (mainly different Linux distros and also Win 7) and is back to Crunchbang! I find it very easy to use and very gentle on resources (did I mention it looks 'cool'?). From time to time I get Linux Format magazine and try the different distributions of Linux that they put on the cover CD. I like them (mostly) and since they are Live CDs I try all of them. But then when something catches my eye I just install it on the HD and after few days am back to Crunchbang. I think I've found my distro, but then the curious me always tries out the new arrivals. Just hope that one day I'll be satisfied with one and stick to it. But then... only time will tell.

Just installed Opera on Crunchbang Statler. It is really cool, and I feel like exploring it more, so that Opera will become my browser No 1.
Thanks to all the developers, and have a blessed Christmas!

I spent the whole of yesterday cleaning my computer. That is, I've reinstalled Ubuntu Lucid and gave it the whole drive, leaving the other one for Win7. So, now I am dual booting. It is not what I wanted, but still find a program or two I prefer using on Windows. This time however, I also purchased Crossover and will try to run some programs, notably Word and Excel through it. Yes, I know OpenOffice is great, but I have some 'coworkers' who insist on using MS Office and sometimes the conversion is a little shaky, and I think the conversion of spreadsheets is not always accurate. Anyway, Ubuntu is here and will stay.
For the last few years I've tried so many distros and Ubuntu seems to be the best (read: easiest), so let it be here at least for some time.
I've just noticed that around 98% of the programs I was using on Windows I have also on Linux (Opera including), so in a near future I might reclaim my Windows partition for Linux, and hopefully will live happily thereafter.
(If this post doesn't make any sense for you, is only because is early in the morning and my coffee didn't start working yet

So, it is that simple? I didn't know. Yesterday struggled to start the blog, but the 'Monkey' didn't allow me. But today is my day! I made it.
Being the last day of 2006 I would like to wish everyone a Good New Year and may it see all your dreams come true!
Hope to start blogging in a short time. So be prepared for a mixture of everything: from linux on mac, through art (and I am very poor in that) to sharing about things which come my way.
Hope to be here soon (well, in two weeks, maybe).
