Did I hear Wingstreet is here?

Back when ordering fast food online was new, Pizza Hut was one of the first. And, living in Columbus, Ohio....I could get Wingstreet wings along with pizza orders. And, all was good.

Now I live in Manhattan, Kansas, home of the oldest continuously operating Pizza Hut location... But, things weren't as good. When I first arrived, online ordering from a local Pizza Hut was the issue. But, the oldest location now offers it....but they don't do everything that I had grown accustom to with online ordering from Pizza Hut. Though there are lots of other places that do online fast food now, so it hasn't been totally missed.

Yesterday, getting a ride home from a friend, I heard on the radio that Wingstreet had come to Manhattan...and I was pretty sure the Aggieville location has it now and the others were coming. That's okay, that's the location for online ordering.

So, I decided that it had been long enough since I had placed a Pizza Hut order, that it was time to give another shot.

:`(

Sadly, online order of Wingstreet Wings didn't show up as an option. I wonder if Pizza Hut pasta had ever made it to Manhattan, Kansas....because that's also still *not* an option....

But, I decided to complete an order anyways.... :>>

upgrading to Karmic Koala

I hadn't intended to start upgrading systems to Karmic Koala so soon...since the servers are kind of pegged with other people downloading and upgrading. But, playing around with do-release-upgrade on my Ubuntu server at work....at first (on Thursday) it didn't show the release and the later it did.

Since its running as a Guest on my Solaris 10 x86 desktop, in VirtualBox, I could take a snapshot and let it go. Plus its a pretty minimal server...its just to run BOINC. It estimated that it would take about 4 hours to download what it needed. Guess it doesn't take advantage of the I2, or things were pretty saturated....

When I came in yesterday, it was still going...was kind of hard with it blanking the screen and stopping waiting for input...but it kept chugging along and eventually upgraded and all seemed good.

So, last night I decided to pull the trigger and upgrade my notebook (ulkc). It warned about a lot more stuff that was unsupported and would be removed, and lots of warnings about all the 3rdparty stuff. But it gave an estimate of 10 hours to download and asked if I wanted to continue.

Sure :lalala:

When I got up the next morning it was waiting to ask about differences in my mod blacklist, it wanted to add pcspkr but it wasn't going to keep the modules I had blacklisted...and no option to merge or stuff....so I told it to keep my blacklist. Wonder what'll happen when I do box, since there's nothing connected to its sound card....so its only way to make noise is through its pc speaker.

After it was done and rebooted, two things didn't work. The firefox button on the panel, since default had changed from firefox 3.0 to firefox 3.5 (though I've been using 3.5 since it came out, just replace /usr/bin/firefox with a new symlink)....easy enough to replace. And, virtualbox.

I reinstated the 3rdparty sources for apt, and checked for updates. Guess there's no Karmic repository for Boxee yet. The only thing that did upgrade was dropbox.

So, I uninstalled virtualbox (it was 2.2) and reinstalled it (3.0 from the karmic repo). And, then I tested it.

It worked.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
