creating NTFS partitions in ubuntu karmic

Posted 02-12-2010 at 10:13 PM by jkzfixme

Recently I have had to give up one of my thumb drives as a keychain warrior. Being as the whole point is file portability I had to format it in the bastardization that is NTFS. So for giggles I checked out the Disk Utility program rather than go command line warrior like I usually would. I found it interesting that the ntfs option was there as it immediately kicked up an error.

Upgrading Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu Studio

Posted 01-26-2010 at 06:25 PM by jkzfixme

Recently I have found myself doing more recording and other multimedia related stuff. Even though I have long ago implemented disaster recovery and do more backups than you can shake a stick at, I still did not feel like reinstalling.
Luckily you can easily install individual aspects of Ubuntu studio ie all the audio apps.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it is truly the year of the android. For the last year I have had the one reasonable choice, the glorious G1. I could have gone with the Mytouch, however without the keyboard or any specs to up my geek cred there was no reason to upgrade. To make matters worse the click was a joke. All of this changed with the release of the Droid. Android has truly become a household name and will continue to grow market share and rock the cellular market. This is not...

enable mp3 support in K3b - ubuntu 9.10

Posted 11-17-2009 at 07:35 PM by jkzfixme

I recently took the plunge and upgraded my daily driver box to the latest greatest. There is nothing ground breaking about the install other than the speed of ext 4 so I wont bother going into that aspect. However one thing that threw me was K3b. When burning a cd for my daughter it kept coming up with

Root your G1 and add cyanogenmod

Posted 10-06-2009 at 11:05 AM by jkzfixme

So last year I posted a blog about why my wife should let me spend our rent money on an android dev phone. Well as it turned out I ended up waiting a few months for my sprint contract to be up and jumped ship to Tmobile. Android is simply the best thing since sliced bread, it has everything I could need and then some. That being said there are multiple reasons why I rooted it. For one you can run full distro's, I tried out Debian and it was awesome. There are other interesting things to do such...
