Damn you Murphy…

June 7th, 2005 Comments Off on Damn you Murphy…

So it happened that I installed Ubuntu and forgot the installation CD on the drive. It happened as well that my sister-in-law, who was here today, needed to use the computer. It also happened that I was not home and that the installation CD automatically booted when the computer was turned on — as it should.

Now, take that fact that my sister-in-law can’t read a word of English and that the first option in the partitioning stage is meant to use the entire hard disk as the Ubuntu partition, and you can figure out what happened then.

This entry is brought to you via a Live CD, which is the only operating system now working at home. A good night for you, or a good morning, or whatever is the time in your timezone. Thanks.
