Upgrade Pogo2003 from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 LTS

Posted 09-15-2012 at 05:21 PM by flshope

My AT&T DSL was running at its peak data rate today -- 80 KB/s (yeah, I know that's slow and I'm not bragging about it, but it's cheap) -- so I decided it would be a good time to upgrade my older linux box Pogo2003 to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The complete upgrade took about 5 hours but was uneventful. So far, the installation appears to be successful.

My new desktop under 12.04 appears to be the full 2D matrix of workspaces with both right/left and up/down workspace changes. However,...

Have router will network.

Posted 09-13-2012 at 12:28 PM by peonuser

Set up pfsense on a 2 g compact flash (with ide interface) and installed it in an old "AT" based p1 box. Need to compare the throughput compared to the plastic router being used now.

Bought a pogoplug for twenty bucks on the recommendation of SourceTrunk. Have not tried to install linux yet. Arch should be an interesting new distro to play with. It has a crappy warranty.

Do not have a machine that can run w8, but I have a client machine that could probably...

Major setback

Posted 09-11-2012 at 10:14 PM by ReaperX7

Due to my eyes not being what they used to after years of straining them in dark rooms with poor lighting and trying to work effectively, I've developed a lot of floaters (random bits floating in the eye's vitreous fluid) and have trouble focusing sharply.

Today I royally fucked up by LFS-7.2 install and I had just gotten to the actual installation of the system and was at the part where you install glibc the first time and reconfigure the tools for the temp system. I entered the...

Weird Cell Phone Scare Bill

The idea is to protect people from scary cell phone radiation by establishing, not just required cell phone labeling, but a host of associated regulations, and government research spending. The bill is 16 pages long and requires carriers to record and provide a host of detailed cell phone usage...
