Chromium on Linux

July 20, 2009

I have successfully built Chromium on my Ubuntu Linux laptop. I simply followed the Linux Build Instructions and a few hours later, I was surfing the ‘net with my shiney new Chromium browser.

To prevent confusion, let me quote the following:

Chromium is an open source browser project. Google Chrome is a browser from Google, based on the Chromium project.

This is a build of Chromium. No versions of Google Chrome for Linux will exist until Google makes an official release.

Homeward Bound

July 9, 2009

Today, Crisha and I begin our trip home.  We fly out of Lilongwe, Malawi around 2:55PM (5:55AM Pacific) and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa 2.5 hrs later.  We will have a 26 hour lay over, which we plan to spend at a Bed & Breakfast.  We’re hoping to blog a bit more in Jo’burg about our internetless days.  From there, we’ll fly to Zurich, Switzerland, where we’ll have an 8 hr layover.  Then, we fly to LAX, finally landing State-side around 4:25PM on Sunday.
