Celend got a fish tank!

Well, she’s had it for a while, but now there’s actual fish swimming around in it! There’s 9 in total, 5 of them being Siamese fighting fish. The rest so far are comprised of platyfish and some Swordtail, both species in the colors of orange and yellow. I have to confess that these critters are far more active that I’d thought. Usually the fish I’ve seen lie about waiting for something to happen, and when that something happens (which usually is feeding time) they become very acive for a short time. Although our fish likes the nom as much as the next one, they just become even more active when food is around and then they tend to swim about freely even when there’s not.

I’ve also aquired the last piece of hardware required to set up the server for now. I was delayed by the fact that it was a Matrox PCI graphics card in it when I got it but not the corresponding cable for connecting DVI or VGA screens to it. Usually I’d just slap in another graphics card, but the motherboard was modern enough to only have a PCI-E slot, and as the only PCI-E card that I have available is currently in my gaming rig I made a pass on putting it in the server. This was however rectified after a trip yesterday to my father’s who’ve graciously donated the computer to begin with after he had no further use of it. So now I’m looking forward to setting it up with Ubuntu Server and slapping making it a LAMP server once I get the time for it later on. I’m hoping it’ll be today.

Soon it’ll be December.
