Well personally I think the next thing to do is have a look at what needs to be added to the WRS to move it beyond "Reference" and into something that can be used to really explore the Wave Concept.

Below is what I think the WRS is going to need and why:

Latest Gardening Update

With all the Waving I've been doing lately I thought I'd break the monotony by doing a quick update about the Garden.

Over the winter we pulled out the zuchinnis and squash and for a while the beds lay unused. I turned them over occasionally but couldn't really get enthused about growing anything. Then my mum gifted us with a few packets of seeds and a few punnets of Broccoflower and I finally got back into the planting mood.

So to date we have:

WRS Installer Script

Okay I've got version 0.1 of a WRS installer script here.

It's a bash script and has been pretty well tested in Ubuntu. It does have an alternative for Redhat based distro's but this is basically untested.

Sitting At The Bottom Of The Gravity Well

While getting my morning twitter fix this morning I came across this post by Jeff:

"Astronauts are in the Command Service Module now, almost all the way to the Moon, poking around in the Eagle. 47 hours until landing!"

After a brief period of wondering whether he'd either ingested some good honest Yass "herb" or had infact invented a time machine, I came across which has been put together to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings.

ChromeOS Is Going To Splinter Linux?!? What The?

I've been watching the wailing and gnashing of teeth that has greeted Googles announcement of ChromeOS with bemusement. From people angry that Google has decided to build their own Distro to those who are claiming that it's a deliberate slight against Ubuntu and will fracture the Linux world, some say fataly!
