Sounds sweet, complete agree…
Ok, after writing about how it isn’t always easy being married to a Geek, and ten reasons Geeks make good friends, I have one more Top Ten of Geekdom for you inspired by Maryam’s geek blogs: Ten reasons why Geeks make good fathers. And they do! They really are uniquely qualified for this role. My husband says I never blog nicely about him, so honey, here you go:1. LEGOS. The Geek is really more of a Man-Child than an adult. In their minds, they are still 10. They freakin’ still love to play with their legos, and have never grown up. I have one friend, WHO WILL REMAIN NAMELESS, that still has legos in his room. He doesn’t have kids. Just legos. Of course, my children love legos and Steve will lovingly spend hours playing legos with them.2. VIDEO GAMES. Due to the whole Man-Child thing as stated in #1, the Geek loves video games. And he’s good at them too. My husband is the hit of all the kids’ friends because not only can he talk video games, he plays them too. If my children get "stuck" while playing their Gameboys and bring it to me for assistance, all I can do is feebly hold it and say " Mommy doesn’t know how to play this." Daddy, however, can beat the game.3. MATH. A huge plus here. No matter how old they get, Steve can still help with the math homework. My ability to be of assistance is going to last another few years before *I* end up throwing the math homework across the room in disgust.4. SMART KIDS. Smart Geeks make smart children. Although for the most part, it’s great to have really intelligent children, when your just turned two year old is using the word PREPOSTEROUS correctly, it makes for some difficult times as they get older. I literally spend a large part of my time scheming to stay one step ahead of my oldest child.5. UP ON TECHNOLOGY. The beautiful thing about having a Geek for a parent is that you aren’t wondering what your children are doing online. You *KNOW* what they are doing online and you can limit it if necessary.It’s fabulous peace of mind.6. SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS. Children of the Geeks always have the coolest science fair projects. And you don’t have to cajole your Geek into helping. You’ll find him fiddling around with the science materials whether you asked him to help or not.7. TOY ASSEMBLY. You will never, ever have to spend six hours of your life, that you will never get back, trying to assemble some 2,000 piece toy at 3 am on Christmas Eve again. The Geek can do it in minutes flat. Usually without the directions. Whereas I have tried to assemble toys and said "Mommy has to go to the bathroom" just so I could escape and scream into my pillow in frustration, if the Geek is around, he can take it right off your hands. I now just say "Daddy is really good at this, let’s wait until he gets home."8. GADGETS. Never again will you have to wonder what that new electronic toy is that all the kids have. In fact, your Geek will probably already own it. The problem arises when the Geek won’t share with the children. "Daddy, I want a digital camera." After the child leaves the room: "I’m not spending hundreds of dollars on a digital camera for him, he’s too young." I say "Let’s get him a cheap one." Steve looks at me as if I just said Aliens are invited to dinner. " To have it take crappy pictures?" He scoffs and walks away in disgust. No sub-par electronics in this house! How dare I suggest it.9. SMART IS COOL. Having a Ge
on my machine.
I get the Ubuntu CD from Ubuntu office site, they deliever CDs for free
for the reason of improving linux community.
Although this is not my first time installation of Linux(6 years ago,I
tried "bluepoint" linux, and then I am try redhat here and there, and
recently installed debian on my vmWare virtual machine), but never did I
really work with linux, Because this time, I think the situation’s gonna
change bit cuz, I do have little job to be done under Linux.
my machine now ask me to choose from Linux or Windows, it’s great
because the software I use as a boot manager which locaked on the "mbr"
section of the harddrive is very secure and easy manage, no danger when
any of my system crashed or need to be installed.
First thing after the Ubuntu installation is to set up the Chinese
working environment, it mainly includes the installation of Chinese
input tools(I choose "fcitx"). then I installed thunderbird, LumaQQ and
Qterm. more will coming lately…
Wish me good luck.
