theme

I got a comment to my recent post asking me what theme I was using. I figured I’d go ahead and post it here:

Nice font and theme! What font is that? What dpi? What freetype version (with or without bytecode)? What theme do you use?

The theme I am using is a slightly modified version of Darkilouche as the application theme, and Gilouche as the Metacity theme. I changed the orange(#f57900) in Darkilouche to red (#e30800). I switched back to Darkilouche after having trouble with Firefox and Neutronium.

As far as the font goes, I’m also using the Liberation fonts with freetype 2.3.4-3.

Iliana becomes a Fedora user

I was trying to occupy Iliana this evening so I started up Abiword to let her type. I controlled the mouse to keep focus on the document as much as possible, there were still a lot of menus popping up. The apps on the bottom were all started by her key strokes.

Iliana\'s first document

Update: Iliana is only one.

Memorial weekend update

I had a great Memorial weekend. My parents came down from Maryland to visit on Saturday. That night we went to the Carolina Mudcats game, the weather was perfect warm but not humid and most importantly no  rain.

Sunday my brother and nephew came up from Charlotte. They brought their slip and slide, while not entirely the warmest weather on Sunday, the kids still enjoyed splashing around on it. For dinner that night, I grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and some chicken breasts.

On the last day of the weekend, Monday, my parents left early to avoid traffic (but they still hit it anyway), and we just hung out. The boys watched E.T. – the Extra Terrestrial for the first time, and with all the hype behind the new Indiana Jones movies, we let them watch Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. I’m sure they’ll want to watch the other tree to catch up. Maybe near mid June I can take them to see the latest edition. The funny part was that Marco said, “he sounds like Han Solo”, and he mentioned the guy on the new movie, Shia LaBeouf, sounds like Sam from Transformers, which as you may or may not know is the same actor.

Now Tuesday rolled around and I’m back at work and Adan is back at school. Marco is already on summer vacation until late July when he begins kindergarten.

Adan’s tee-ball game

Tonight we went to Adan’s first tee-ball game of the season (technically the second but the first game was rained out). Adan’s favorite time was when he played first base and caught the ball from the pitcher to put the runner out to end the inning. It was an exciting time for all.
