What's happening?

Posted 12-22-2016 at 09:41 AM by masinick

I have not posted to the blog here, from what the entries indicate, in over SIX years.

I tend to read and write a lot more Email, and I've also participated in news groups and forums for decades, preceding many of the collections of information, news, and collaboration, and probably before over half of the current generation of frequent social media participants were born.

I'm still very active in technology, but as you might expect, the things that occupy my time change...

Absolute Linux 13.1.2

Posted 07-17-2010 at 12:22 AM by masinick

I installed Absolute Linux 13.1.2 on Friday evening and I've been using it for a few hours now. It features a nicely customized IceWM lightweight window manager, a slimmed down set of Slackware packages. By default, in place of the usual Firefox, you see the Google Chromium Web browser, which is starting to mature nicely. You can block ads now, and you can add a lot of convenience applications.

Slackware was once very much a command line based Linux distribution, very much in the...

Three favorite distros currently in testing: SimplyMEPIS, antiX, PCLinuxOS

Posted 03-18-2010 at 02:06 PM by masinick

Two of my favorite Debian based distributions, and one RPM based distribution that uses Debian-like packaging tools are in their testing cycles right now.

SimplyMEPIS and antiX, two of the products in the MEPIS family, have been through several iterations of their Beta testing cycle, and now each of them has also released three release candidates (RC), and they are very cloe to release. Each of them has a Version 8.5 RC 3 now available for testing. These can be upgraded to final...

Here with antiX M8.2 Test 1, running live. Let me tell you why I like antiX so much as a Live CD.

1. Loads, even to RAM, in under two minutes, faster than that to run straight from CD.

2. Recognizes, even on CD, just about any wireless network card you can throw at it.

3. Has a good selection of software, and given that you can run it live, from USB, or install it to disk from the CD, it is easy to install or just use as is (as I am doing right now....

Favorites released: sidux, Debian Lenny, antiX and SimplyMEPIS

Posted 02-23-2009 at 05:55 PM by masinick

I am a Debian software fan, no doubt about it. 1995 was the first year that I used GNU/Linux software, (1982 was my UNIX software debut), so when I wanted to spread out, Debian was one of the first areas I read about that would probably satisfy my software itch, and indeed it did.

In 2001, I had a broadband network, but I was not yet burning my own CDs. In fact, I took a few years before I got to that point. My first Linux systems were ones that I bought, either in books or in...
