Install IE6 SP1 In Linux Using Wine and then some…

I’ve recently come across the need to use Internet Explorer in linux, and decided to find a way to do it. It’s possible to just install it by hand using wine, but I wanted an easier way. This led me to WineTools.

With WineTools you can easily install a plethora of windows apps easily and automatically.

On a different note, I set up Gallery2 on this server again due to the fact that I have a nice camera now. Right now there’s just some random stuff, but soon (read: next saturday) I’ll have a lot more pictures due to the fact that I’m going backpacking during the week of the 4th of July at North Manitou Island.

I also found a really cool thing from NetZero called NetZero Voice. It’s use is so that if you for some reason asked me for my number I could give you my NetZero Voice number instead of my cell number.

It has all sorts of cool stuff that you can do with it, like sending a text message to your real cell when you get a voicemail, and listening to your voicemails online as well as on your phone. Best of all, it’s FREE.

My number is 6165281831. Leave me a message!

Potato Burger

This is probably the cheapest recipe I know.

What you need:
1 potato
1/4 cup flour, maybe less
olive oil
any seasonings you want, I use garlic powder, salt, and pepper

Shred the potato with a cheese grater. Squeeze out some of the liquid over the sink. Mix in some flour until it’s just a sticky mess. Heat up a skillet on medium and put a few splashes of olive oil on the pan. Make some patties with the potato, and fry just like a regular burger.

Serve with ketchup/catsup and toast (using any bread nearby).

EDIT: When you squeeze out the juice, dryer is better. It gets more crispy and isn’t as starchy.
