This geeks got guns

Posted 09-15-2009 at 02:56 PM by jkzfixme

As an IT professional you often run into mind boggling problems, just weird stuff which can throw you for a loop and leaving you scratching your head for days. Ask anybody who does it for a living and there will be at least one memorable horror story withing the last few months. Well I am no exception , however what I did with the erroneous hard drives was exceptionally fun ! I just found these pics laying around on an old external and figured I would share.

One of my few vices happens...

Automated MySQL backups

Posted 09-15-2009 at 12:50 PM by jkzfixme
Updated 09-15-2009 at 03:00 PM by jkzfixme

Lately I had two SQL servers crash and thankfully have implemented a pretty good backup solution using a script called AutoMySQLBackup, which uses mysqldump to create SQL dumps of your databases. Here is the play by play so you to can get back up and running with expedience. I am assuming the use of ubuntu in this tutorial as that is what I typically use, although the only real difference here is in the sudo command. If you are using a different distro just disregard any sudo's and login as root....

Ubuntu 9.10: Karmic Koala

Top applications to help you ditch windows permanently

Posted 01-26-2009 at 02:25 PM by jkzfixme

One of the most common occurrences I have seen in people trying to migrate over is to get a distro installed and stare at it blankly saying what now ? So what Im trying to do here is hopefully answer some of these questions and inform you of the programs and applications...

Moving sucks ...... but with a new crib comes mythtv !

Posted 01-01-2009 at 05:19 PM by jkzfixme

So the good news is I had the last week off work. The bad news , as you can guess by the title, is that I spent it lugging god awful heavy books and furniture to the new crib.
