I have posted our announcement about bringing Fex home from the pet store. I had planned on doing the same for our announcement for adopting Aesa and Samson. However I had forgotten to do so until my post earlier this morning. So just shy of 2 weeks late here are the announcement emails from 3 years ago, Aug 19th, 2006.
For the past few weeks our eldest ferret, Samson (6 years old), had been acting lethargic. He’d flat ferret quite a bit, wasn’t bouncing around like he normally did and in general his get up and play time was getting shorter and shorter. On top of that some times when my wife and I picked him up he would squeak. Definitely nor normal for any of our ferrets. We finally decided to take him into the vet to have blood work done and a general checkup.
Not one of my little stinkers but completely cute. This particular ferret lover is from Japan and she has loads of wonderful, short, smile inducing ferret videos on Youtube. Give them a view!
I think everyone who uses Windows has, at one time or another, been faced with the task of decompressing a zip archive. Probably as many people have floundered their way through the ‘net and found Winzip, the commercial zip utility for Windows which has been around since Windows95 was shiny and new.
Being the Open Source nut that I am I was never really happy with Winzip. Not because it is a bad product or that I am anti-capitalist (See the L of this blogs name on that topic) but because it is such a ubiquitous operation that many people, especially in a business environment, end up using Winzip unregistered for months, even years. IE, everyone needs to decompress zip archives at one time or another but not often enough to justify Winzip’s price tag. In the business world I feel that if a company is going to use a commercial product they should do so legally. Either register the software or find a free alternative. The latter is where 7Zip comes in.
Created a new catagory for a series of blogs I want to write describing the different programs I use and why I use them.
