Preplogic.com - I like it. Makes me feel smart.

Posted 04-12-2009 at 08:14 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)
Updated 02-15-2010 at 09:55 AM by jaymarting (updated for progress)

About five months ago, I decided to for my CCNA. And I decided to use Preplogic.com to train for it. Preplogic has a fantastic program for networking wannabes (and networking already bes). For those of you only interested in the technology side of things, the CCNA is a decently high level certification from Cisco: Cisco Certified Networking Associate. My career in the networking field has been short for many but lengthy for me. Most of my 4 years have been spent as a Jr Network Admin at a small...

Posted 09-17-2008 at 12:01 PM by ghostdog74

GOOD DECISIONS: PMP & PREPLOGIC

Posted 06-23-2009 at 10:06 PM by pereb
Updated 03-01-2010 at 02:14 PM by pereb (more relevant links)

Last month I wrote about the crossroads I was at in my career. Well, I decided it was time to take some action. Since I’m new to certifications, I talked to some friends in the field and did some looking around online, and decided to pick up PMP video training from PREPLOGIC.COM (here: http://www.preplogic.com/products/vi...s.aspx?eid=391). I love it. I bought the PMP practice exam from PrepLogic, too but I’ve really just started looking at that.

#howmany for grub 2

Posted 12-05-2009 at 08:46 PM by drask

I don't really like the default behavior of Grub in Ubuntu to continue to add all the kernel updates to my grub boot menu. I never go back and use old kernels (except by mistake) and it just crowds up my boot menu.

In the past, I have used the #howmany option in /boot/grub/menu.lst to limit this to only the most recent kernel. Now that I am using Karmic Koala though, this option no longer appears to be available due to the fact that the default bootloader is now Grub 2.

Posted 05-10-2011 at 10:37 PM by TobiSGD

I often read in posts on this forums things like: "If you want a more user-friendly OS then go for Ubuntu or Mint.", "Debian is less user-friendly than Ubuntu." or "Slackware is not a user-friendly distribution."

But is that true? I think not, at least not in general.

At first I have to define what user-friendliness in my eyes is. Assuming that I...
