Moving Out

Posted 04-25-2008 at 05:24 PM by mowestusa

For better or for worse I'm moving my blog to http://mowestusa.wordpress.com/.

Check out the first post on the new site for the reasons. I will no longer maintain the blog in two locations, since the new site has an RSS feed. I will keep this page up for an archive.

Speakers Do Make a Difference

Posted 01-22-2008 at 08:39 PM by mowestusa

I would consider myself an audiophile. I have not spent hundreds of dollars on my sound set up at home. I don't spend hours even listening to music. Podcasts have become my audio entertainment in the car, washing dishes, and when exercising. Yet, I have learned that speakers do make a difference. For years I have used the original speakers that come with desktops or the built in speakers in laptops.

I understand email. I understand forums. I understand static HTML sites. IRC or chat in general is not something I know or understand. Today proved how frustrated a newbie can become when exposed to technologies which they have never used or been taught.

I just got back from the Ohio Linux Fest which...

Krita for Non Graphic Artists

Posted 09-17-2007 at 03:36 PM by mowestusa

Okay, I'm not next Michelangelo, nor should anyone confuse me with an artist. Yet, every once in a while I get the urge to do something with graphics. If you are visiting my site Free and Open Under the Steeple then you know that I'm more into text than graphics. In fact, besides the little validation button at the bottom of my pages this post has the only graphics on the site at the moment.

I tried Krita by accident. I decided to install Quanta+ to help me sort out some of the validation...

SSH Saves the Day

Posted 09-13-2007 at 09:49 PM by mowestusa

I'm sure many a Unix Sys-Admin has used ssh to save the day, but in my case it has kept me from going insane. I admit that I use Free and Open Source Software not as my day job, but to get things done that I want to get done. Since getting into Linux and other Unix like operating systems, I have been able to do things that I never would have attempted just a few years ago. For example, I keep old computers running and useful. I have built a whole network of computers that offer me windows to the...
