Ubuntu'd, you're getting a Dell

The perfect high school graduation gift – a new computer. It'll be a God-send for my daughter when her college starts up in the fall. But what to buy? Seeing that I've been running Linux systems for over a decade, I really wanted to introduce my daughter (a non-geek, I guess she didn't get the gene) to Linux as well.

Simple script restores your system settings after OS reinstall

Reinstalling your operating system is never a fun or welcome task, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Restoring settings and downloaded applications after installing an operating system can take quite a bit of time, so I've come up with a shell script to make things a bit easier.

Linux inner circle thumbs nose at Microsoft’s patent bravado

The Linux faithful might be staring down the barrel of another round of Microsoft’s legal taunts, but at last week’s Linux Foundation Summit, the reaction was more ho-hum than oh-no.

Do you think you are safe with Firefox? In general, I would agree with you. But at the same time, I would also point out that there is a fairly sizable security concern that may be addressed, as effectively as some security experts might like. It's called the Firefox extension.

I was almost sure that there would be no way to synchronize my Windows Mobile Outlook information (contacts, tasks, schedule, etc.) with Ubuntu. But after a bit of tinkering this morning I'm amazed to report that I am able to synchronize with Ubuntu! [I've been wanting to do this myself, to date I have been doing file transfers via ftp with my pocketPC. Cant wait to try]

Setting Up A Subversion Repository Using Apache, With Auto Updatable Working Copy

  • HowtoForge; By Fahd Aziz (Posted by falko on Jun 20, 2007 9:26 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories over time. A tree of files is placed into a central repository. The repository is much like an ordinary file server, except that it remembers every change ever made to your files and directories. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of time machine.

Review: Devices of the Soul

I'll let you in on a little secret. Reviewing technical books is relatively easy for me. A lot of it has to do with discovering the basic premise of the book, the intended audience, and what it's supposed to accomplish. From there, it's a matter of seeing whether or not the book actually hits its goals. Ok, ok, it's a little more involved than that, but that's the nuts and bolts of it. Reviewing Devices of the Soul was more like slowly climbing a mountain trail, trying to notice and record the subtle nuances of the journey and communicating the flavor and color of the experience. Talbott's effort made me want to write an essay, not a review.

The day Dell refused to sell a computer

I had a surreal experience with Dell today. Wanting to support Dell in their decision to sell computers with Ubuntu installed, I decided to order one for our small, non-profit business. Stargely, they REFUSED MY MONEY because I was buying it to use for a business. What business model does that fall under?

RT and email

I use RT as a problem-ticketing system (or at least, I encourage people to use it). Since I don’t manage my own mail server, I’ve been putting off the mail gateway part of this for a while, but finally got it working yesterday.
