Obviously Something I don’t Understand.

I am now running Linux Mint on my AMD 64-bit dual core PC. I am really enjoying the change.

Linux Mint is built off the 32 bit UBUNTU system and should not take advantage of my AMD’s dual CPUs.

However, I have noticed that the system Monitor (Screen Shot above) is displaying activity on both CPUs. Any of you Linux Gurus have an explanation about what is going on. Is it still running dual CPUs, but in a 32 bit mode?

Oh, yes, I did finish my taxes. Just have to mail them at the post office tomorrow.

I’m Here – Sort Of.

I spent most of yesterday working on my taxes. I am pretty well done with the federal. I just need to double check my work. Then filling out a state return should only take a couple of hours. Even though this isn’t a difficult task, it always puts me in a “bummer” mood. I hope to have this all completed by the end of the week.

Once that task is over, I need to focus on updating my blogging software, WordPress. It is now several updates behind. When my web host decided to move me to a new server, they removed one of my maintenance tools. That makes updating more difficult. When I asked them about getting access to the tool, I was told that I am on a server for “trouble users”, and it would not be available.

That is going to require study on my part to manually upgrade my software. I doubt if it it is too complicated, I just don’t want to look at it.

I have a couple other issues that are occupying my mind and I hope they are resolved soon. However, since one has been in progress for over 3 years now, I am not holding my breath.

Anyway, until I get a few things over and done with, I wanted you to know what is causing the lack of new posts. I really don’t like to post, if I am not in a good mood.
