Google Chrome is Chromium for Linux

This article found in Linuxscrew.com is the source I have for using the new Chrome browser in Linux. With links to Debian packages, it's a great way try out the new browser which I heard is rumored to be a platform for integration with their other tools and applications.

The Difficulty of the Jock/Nerd Paradox

The road less traveled has a fork in it. My resources are limited. Being on the rugby team has made me social, outgoing, and personable; especially for a geek. These days, My geekery has become worth developing for monetary purposes. Who knew being a devout Linux user would make me a commodity?

I intend to pursue side work with a startup. I already know the demands are going to require a big portion of my personal life - mainly the sacrificing of my jockhood. Now that I'm 29 it only seems appropriate that I find profitable ways to advance my knowledge.

I think this moment is what every middle aged person warns you about; the turning away from recklessness into a higher level of adulthood. Complaints of achy joints, knowledgeable discussions on the economy, and a beer gut are waiting for me just beyond this transition.

With some proper prioritizing, I can claim my own time to stay in shape. But as the new rugby season gets closer, it's relevance is dwarfed by the pursuit of my potential. I'm hoping this is a pendulum affect and I can simply come back to the sports I love.

Without staking their claim, they are saying it's gonna change everything... We shall see.
