Since I’ve switched all my Linux desktops to Ubuntu, (home, work, and laptop) I become more and more impressed with it everyday. So when I finally got tired of trying to fix the out of date Gentoo install on my Colo server, I decided to bite the bullet and switch it to Ubuntu 6.10 Server Edition. My Colo server is the server that currently hosts this website.
I decided to go with Ubuntu server edition for my Colocated server for many reasons, primarily of which was ease of maintence. I’ve had very little time as of late to devote to time consuming distrobutions such as Gentoo, it was fun, but it just took up too much of my time, and when it got too far out of date, it was just too much work to recover.

On February 2nd, the CRTC approved 6 new HD licenses to High Fidelity HDTV Inc. High Fidelity HDTV already operates Oasis HD, Rush HD, Equator HD, and Treasure HD in Canada.
The new licenses are approved for Eureka HD, a science and technology channel; Crafts and Hobbies HD, hobbies and crafts; Aqua HD, life in and around water; Centre Stage HD, dedicated to the art and culture surrounding music, concerts, etc. There are two duds in the line up of six, Seniors HD, and Womens Sports HD.
It will likely be months, to years before we see these channels, for now, the licenses are there, and that paves the way for High Fidelity to start shopping these channels around to the cable and satellite providers in Canada. I can’t say that I am excited about any of these channels, and I think it will be very unlikely that we will see any of these channels, but you never know.
You can read CRTC decision 2007-54 at their website.
