Earlier on I decided to give it a try just for the hell of it. I gave it a few tries, deleting the VM and restarting whenever I screwed up, but on my last attempt, I gave up when I tried bootstrapping it and my compiler spewed up a bunch of errors, probably because I set the flags a tad too aggressively. :XD: I haven't completely lost hope though, because I found an alternate "distro" known as Funtoo, which is basically a slightly improved Gentoo. So far, the main difference I've noticed is that the install guide cuts the crap and goes straight to what you need to know. I like that! There are some other minor differences as well, but they all help to make things go a lot more smoothly. It's still more work than installing a typical Linux distro though, because you have to do all the partitioning manually, and you have to let it compile a bunch of things as well. The end result is an operating system compiled by your machine, for your machine, so it should theoretically be faster than something compiled to be "one size fits all".

Anyway, if I'm able to get this working in a VM, I might give consider installing it for real. I'll just have to set aside some hard drive space for it...

I feel like watching a Youtube video.  Know of a good one?  :)

It can be about anything.

This guy does some really neat videos, mainly science experiments with liquid mercury and weird shotgun loads. Check him out: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cGsm_…

So the hour-glass is filled with mercury instead of sand?  Is this an impressive feat?  I don't know anything about mercury, other than fish sometimes have it and you don't want to ingest much of it.

That seems like a very long process for something that appears so simple and meh to me.  But I suppose I just fail to understand the complexity of it?  :P

I thought it was kinda neat, but I can see why it's nothing really special. His other videos are better.

My artwork is really nothing special. :XD: Nowadays, I'm focusing more on UI customization on various operating systems. Lately, I've been modifying and perfecting this theme I found for Xubuntu, and I'm thinking that I may post it once I'm finished, if it isn't too complex to install.
