Tried to redo the arch linux for my pogoplug. for some reason the batch file to do the image creation foobarred the boot of the hd on my host system. Thank god I can at least still get at my data. Have a spare drive that I may just do a clean install. then I will move the data over.One of the few times in twenty some odd years linux has ever really screwed up. Using a different machine for the time being. will not run that script on it.

Looking in the closet and can not believe how...

How to fix (possibly) wrong icon appearing for hp-systray

Posted 04-17-2014 at 05:37 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Depending on your DE configurations -- probably if you use KDE or mainly KDE/qt applications (I'm on Openbox, but I have "export DE=KDE" on my autostart for some reason), or perhaps if you use tint2, HP systray applet may show up with non-responsive "stolen" icons from neighbor applications and behave oddly in general.


It's generally set to autorun by there being a file "/etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop". All you got to do is to edit such...

Exton|OS 64 bit with Mate 1.6.2 :: build 140415 :: (Ubuntu 14.04 in advance)

Posted 04-15-2014 at 09:13 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I moved recently to the Seattle area for a job with Amazon.

I'd had Time Warner Cable in San Antonio, which was woefully under-saavy for some of the stuff I was wanting to do (mostly revolving around IPv6), so I was excited to see what opportunities there were with new ISPs in Seattle. My wife didn't want to live *in* Seattle, so we got a nice rental setup out near Renton, a little ways south of Seattle.

One of our next door neighbors is a Comcast employee, as evidenced...
