Since I am using fglrx and I also installed it through module-assistant, I have to manage it myself to rebuild after updating kernel. However, last week I saw something more terrible.

Goodbye Siemens CX65, Welcome Sony Ericsson W810i

I have been used Siemens CX65 since 3 years ago. The last mention is about accessing to the inside data on Ubuntu Edgy.

As a result, I missed so many calls. That's why I have to find a new mobile phone. Today is the day. I bought a Sony Ericsson W810i.
