Bye-bye GNOME 2
Over the past couple of weeks, GNOME 2 has essentially been taken away from
After almost ten years of this excellent environment, it will very much
be missed. In my Debian systems, GNOME 3 finally made it into sid/unstable,
and Ubuntu forced me over to Unity.
Feels like the end of an era.

Now that we are all settled into the new house, it's time for renovations!
The chosen area to start is the living room-dining room half of the house.
Since the rest of the ground floor already has nice tile, this half really
needed attention, with its original 1983 carpeting.
The plan was simple; buy some relatively nice hardwood and apply. Of
course, along the way, things got more complicated. Choosing the right
flooring took forever, and the right look comes with a price. To make it
nice and level, the OSB subfloor will be removed and replaced with plywood.
This will require some floor joist work. The drywall is also being tackled
at this time. There was a small leak from the washroom above at some point,
so some ceiling is getting removed to address the issue. This will need to
be refinished in several places in the house. While we're at it, why not
replace the window in the dining room with something more modern?
The list seems to go on and on. In the end, it will be worth it.
