Ch...ch...ch...changes!

Posted 04-14-2012 at 05:04 PM by brianL

Over the past few months, I've made a few changes to my desktop hardware. Transplants really, though I might have been better off building a new computer from scratch. Boosted the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB, more scope for virtualisation. Then a new graphics card to replace the integrated graphics. This is where I slipped up a bit. I got a NVidia 560Ti, but found it was too long, the drive cage got in the way. But since I can't recall seeing the physical dimensions of it anywhere, only the tech. specs,...

Sheevaplugging Again (or trying...)

Thought it was about time I had another go at trying to restore my Sheevaplug to its original state, but with the same results as last time. Included a screenshot this time.

TODO List

Posted 01-10-2012 at 07:17 AM by brianL
Updated 01-10-2012 at 07:18 AM by brianL

Here's my todo list for 2012, in no particular order:
Learn to type, using more than two fingers of one hand.
Learn how to use vim and emacs.
Learn how to program: bash scripting, C, Python or Perl, assembly.
Learn more in general about using GNU/Linux.
But, acknowledging the fact that I'm incurably lazy, I shall be making the same todo list this time next year.

Mixed Bag

Posted 08-17-2011 at 07:14 AM by brianL

SheevaPlug
Tried again and failed. Still getting that mass/mess of letters and symbols after loading the kernel message. Looks like it's reading the kernel rather than loading it. Did find someone with the same problem, but he used Windows to solve it.

Very reluctant to go down that road. I'll try again sometime, when I'm in the right mood.

Desktop computer knackered
Hardware problems. First the DVD...

Brian's new toy

After months of dithering, I acted. Bought a Nokia N900, to use more as a mini-computer rather than a smartphone. Keeping my fingers crossed that I don't **** this up like I've (maybe) done with the SheevaPlug. I'm finding "swiping" takes a bit of getting used to. Might have to upgrade my fingers. Installed Easy Debian successfully.
