This is another one of those tech articles. Recently, I started using Ubuntu 12.10 as my primary system. I didn’t want to… but that’s another story.

Everyone knows that Fred likes to eat. =) Tonight, while the Mrs. was hard at work finishing some cakes, it was up to me to make dinner. From the moment I woke this morning I wanted pizza… so earlier today I put together some dough. Anticipation built, and come 7pm I was ready to take… Continue reading Pizza Carbonara
