    Blistered. 

    I have a nickel-sized blister on my foot this morning that is still
    soft. It developed at mile 9 of my 16 miler yesterday.

    I also have mostly bruising-type pain on my right hip, probably from
    the Camelbak, and some ankle soreness from awkardly walking/running on
    the blister.

    The good news is that usual injury suspects are not bothering me
    today–although hip flexors were really tight and sore for my last six
    miles yesterday.

    Fresh install of Linux on add old laptop – Linux Mint 

    To clarify, I installed Linux Mint "Elyssa" – XFCE Community Edition.  The Kubuntu 7.04 install that I had on this laptop seemed to run fairly slowly, so I decided to experiment with a lighter weight, yet still full featured, setup.

    I hardly had to intervene with the install.  I was asked to set up a user, whether I wanted to set up a root account, and whether I wanted fortune to run when I opened a terminal (ok, so there was probably language and time zone stuff, too).

    Oh…  my fortune:

    How nice.

    There is an XFCE 4 mintConfig, which has a nice interface…  I was looking for WPA setup, and it's there under networking (WPA 1 & 2).  However, I have not been successful at accessing my router.  I think my Linksys wireless card is toast, so I'll have to test with another card.

    One big plus here is that Firefox runs well on a Toshiba Satellite A15-S127.

    I may post more once I get wireless running.
