it fell into the water. This photo shows were the bridge used to be. While they are working double time on building a new one, travelers are enduring 2+ hour drives to the airport. Of course, this is better than when the bridge first collapsed. I guess the old detour was 6 hours.

Kelly's earlier report on the Cinco de Mayo shennanigans (or would that be trucos ?), I submit this photographic evidence. Look closely at the young lady in the right of the frame. No, they weren't giving out Jose Cuervo mini-skirts. Yes, she was wearing the Jose Cuervo sombrero around her waist. At 6 PM. I assume that she ended up being taken home in this. And she wasn't even one of the drunk ones.

bare naked in orangevale: Rattlesnake Training. I think that the only things that I could add to it would be (a) certainly don't stop and get a closeup of the rattlesnakes while they are sunning themselves and (b) the same holds true for bobcats. They may be cute when they are holed up in a tree but don't not under any circumstances stop and make them pose for a picture.

So I took the plunge and updated my laptop to Ubuntu 06.06 beta 2 tonight. Overall, not too bad of an experience. Just two major problems and both of them I have had before. The first, and most annoying, was the loss of my trackpad configuration. It lost it's tap click setting and was clicking on everything in sight due to my thumb-dragging. After figuring out that I needed the evdev module loaded to get the Xorg to attach the synaptics driver, I was fine. The sound problem has proved more elusive. I had the same issue when I initially installed Ubuntu 05.10 so I just need to remember what I did. Something about my module loading order...
BTW, my background is a promo shot from the upcoming freerider epic ROAM and is available here.
