Birthday email

Posted 04-15-2012 at 04:41 PM by fred roellig

I want the person or persons who decided to send birthday emails to members ontheir birthdays to stand in front of a mirror and repeat the following: "People don't choose linux because they want the usual microsoft stupidity. People choose linux to get away from that crap." Now, slap yourself in the head hard enough to leave a red mark. This increases the likelihood of you actually getting a fucking clue. You douchebags have all this crap about "don't waste our time with stupid questions"...

Rethinking network configuration

Posted 04-15-2012 at 02:43 AM by Skaperen

Previously I wrote about configuring interfaces with static IPs based on matching them with what actual network (subnet) the interface is connected to. Now I'm thinking about it in even more different terms. But this concept will need some changes in the kernel itself.

To start with, the kernel already (by default) will "leak" an IP address to other interfaces. Specifically, if an ARP query comes in on one interface for an IP address only configured on another interface,...

Tiling window management the easy way.

Posted 04-14-2012 at 07:07 PM by stretchedthin

Been a couple days but here's a new one. As a bonus you get to see what I look like. (Well maybe bonus is the wrong word.)
The floating desktop metaphor has dominated the modern desktop. It has it's strengths, but it's weakness make it more time consuming to resize, and work in multiple windows. Tiling window management addresses these issues.

Tiling Window management, the easy way.

Ch...ch...ch...changes!

Posted 04-14-2012 at 04:04 PM by brianL

Over the past few months, I've made a few changes to my desktop hardware. Transplants really, though I might have been better off building a new computer from scratch. Boosted the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB, more scope for virtualisation. Then a new graphics card to replace the integrated graphics. This is where I slipped up a bit. I got a NVidia 560Ti, but found it was too long, the drive cage got in the way. But since I can't recall seeing the physical dimensions of it anywhere, only the tech. specs,...
