Thinking of changing the blog template

Well coz it's been a while since I really blog these days. This is especially due to the existence of Facebook and Identica/Twitter. I used to blog alot but now any personal post I no longer post it here, only in Facebook. What to do with this blog? It's like a place where I throw code snippets stuff now and then, which primarily is for me, to grab later on.

Twitter is much faster to post, as I don't have to put in so much thought to express myself. It's so much easier to post short notices and pics these days using Twitter. Writing these 2 paragraphs is not easy, I really have to think to compose the words! The days when they are very fluid are over now. I'm getting old.

You know, one other thing that's been keeping me real slow in updating the blog is I kinda have this feeling that I don't have the freedom to write as much as in the old days. Maybe because I'm well aware of the audience of this blog now or maybe I don't have to ramble on as much anymore. See, old age catching up. Arrghh!!

KDE desktop - ick!

I hate it. No matter how much I tried to get used to it, it's just not working for me. It installed a horde of these K apps that I don't really like. This is the last time I ever will try KDE. LXDE is better, maybe Fluxbox even better who knows. I'm going to try that one after this.
