Wanna know something wierd ?

Posted 07-04-2011 at 09:53 PM by DJ Shaji

So I downloaded NetBSD 4 Live iso, and I have to say, I was truly amazed at the performance of the thing. I mean, whatever they've done, its quite commendable. For one, it has KDE, and not only did it start up quite nicely, it ran much faster than my Fedora 14 live CD with GNOME. I mean, its performance was simply incredible. Hats off to the NetBSD Live! CD team! Too bad that it can't be installed to the hard drive, though.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I simply don't...

Just a quick piece of code I wrote to start learning php. Had to do something better than "Hello, World" My odata file is quite a bit larger, but I just put the small version for sake of space. This program is beginner level, but it worked for me.

My SLiM style and my Flux keys

Posted 07-04-2011 at 02:34 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)
Tags feed, fluxbox, slim

This is my third post in the last half-hour. The best way to keep up is to get a feed reader and tell it to keep tabs on this blog's feed, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...r-450341/feed/ .

Although I have not the most creative nor artistic mind, I was able to create a good theme for SLiM, my new login manager. The configuration files for themes are very easy to modify ( plain text ) and this is what I have come up with:

Dumping the Desktop Environment

A while ago I started using a proper desktop environment ( as opposed to independent window managers ). I did this with the false beliefs that it would make my life easier and that it would encourage more of my friends to try out free operating systems when they saw me using my computer.

Slowly I realised this was not true. Then I read this, and it sealed my fate:

Back to the world of the living

Posted 07-04-2011 at 01:28 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I originally started blogging as an experiment, but soon lost the time to write regular entries. Eventually this blog decayed and died. Ever since I have been wanting to write but have never found myself at a computer at the right time.

From now on I am starting a regular blogging routine of more than two posts per week. Expect to start seeing some of my shell scripts, reviews of software and opinions on all things in the virtual world to start coming out of this blog again....
