the itjerk is back

Nothing like heartache and a couple days off to spur on those unfinished projects… the itjerk is back, now hosted on wordpress.com. All the old content from My Opera site has been imported, and I’ve got a few fun projects lined up. Goodbye opera and welcome to my new home!

installing opera on ubuntu 9.04

Hey – what a pain in the you-know-where was this! I first installed the .deb file for Ubuntu from the Opera.com website. This was the latest version of Opera, 9.64, but it was also a "static" version. Flash didn't work, wouldn't update, etc. Sucks, right?

So to get Opera properly installed on my linux box, I had to a) edit my apt sources list, b) get a key to trust the new source, c) install opera, and finally d) reboot to see it in my application menu.

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://deb.opera.com/opera/ lenny non-free
sudo wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install opera
