The Weekend, Doctor Who and Ubuntu

Another Monday, another “The Weekend” post! What have I been up to this weekend? Well, I’ll tell you. On Friday night, I went round to Philippa’s for dinner. On Saturday, Philippa came round and we basically spent the whole day cleaning the flat (I’d received a letter from my landlord about the cleanliness the week previously… just don’t get me started, OK? Good.)

In the evening, we went to the square dance at Fordham (part of the ‘Lone Star Mission’). It went really well and was great fun! Philippa and I had quite a lot to eat, fortunately the dances after dinner were rather more sedate than the ones before ๐Ÿ™‚

On Sunday, in the morning we went to the service at Fordham, then came back to have lunch. We spent some of Sunday afternoon cleaning, and then we went to the evening service. It was a special service to say goodbye to the Texans who had come over to help with the mission, and it was really good! We sang lots of good songs, and had some really good positive feedback about the week. Afterwards, Philippa and I went back to hers to have dinner and watch “Doctor Who”.

On that note — how creepy was that episode of Doctor Who? (Link: Wikipedia — note: contains spoilers). I have a feeling this multi-parter is going to be another “The Empty Child” — I hope the conclusion is as good as the first one!

Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, there’s a new version of Ubuntu Linux out. I have to say I’ve been very impressed with the way it handled the upgrade. You can just do it using the built-in update manager… I’ve actually been strongly encouraged to download Ubuntu rather than using something like Fedora Core: with Fedora, every time they release a new version you have to download the ISOs and burn them to CD (or set up a network repository, or whatever). With Ubuntu, it handled the upgrade process very painlessly indeed, it just downloaded it all from the net without fuss.

Anyway, that’s me done for the time being. This evening, I’m going to see “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Mercury Theatre with Philippa and a couple of friends from Fordham. It should be good – I’ll post up soon about it ๐Ÿ™‚
