Back at it

Sorry for the long absence. I’ve been traveling, and my home computer crashed while I was away. I have all my notes and photos on this machine, so my grand scheme of writing blog posts while driving the pacific coast was thwarted. I had an amazing vacation, but I’m happy to be back to my kitchen, and to commune with the internet once again.


I'm a graduate student in Montreal. I spend most of my time studying drug addiction using brain imaging techniques. I'm also a foodie, exploring the culinary world both in and out of my kitchen.

KC I know it’s easier to just say “my computer crashed” than to explain the full details… but that is a disservice to the computer in question, which was running fine the entire time. In reality the problem was a flaky router.

(And before you come back with a “but the router is a computer, and that’s the computer I was talking about” retort, let me point out that you said “I have all my notes and photos on this machine,” so obviously you were not talking about the router.)

but does it run linux?

Yes, Kebes the computer in question had about 2 months of uptime when I got back. It’s running Ubuntu, and it’s rock stable. My router is in fact the problem, and you’re right to point it out. The difference between a stable computer behind a flaky router, and a flaky computer behind a stable router is academic. I couldn’t post anything. As we are both academics we’re right to have this discussion.
