Once again, We've fired up our gopher services, following the meltdown a few years back of our old IIS 2.0 box.

Feel free to visit our furry little rodent at gopher://gopher.NorthTech.US

We have a rather large library of free software that you prolly can't find easily, like, Ultrix, BSD2.x, Unix 7th Edition, Coherent, many emulators (So you don't have to buy a VAX or PDP-11 on eBay), etc.

Oh, it doesn't resolve for you? We can fix that. Read on...

Slackware-13.1-Hacks-Font Improvements

Posted 02-16-2011 at 04:21 PM by arniekat

Font Improvements

Dugan Chen did a very good job of creating the SlackBuilds and providing the source for rebuilding the Slackware packages to get better fonts. I use the Ubuntu Font Improvements and am very happy with them. This is a condensed run-down of the information he provided along with my own information/settings.

From Dugan Chen's Website http://www.vcn.bc.ca/~dugan/

Click Menu (Upper Left-Hand Corner) > Settings > Preferences OR CTRL+F12

General Tab > Startup "Start with a Home Page"...

Slackware-13.1-Hacks-Hosts File

Posted 02-16-2011 at 02:34 PM by arniekat

# cat /etc/HOSTNAME

A blurb for today.

Posted 02-16-2011 at 09:16 AM by peonuser

Still using my Chumby like a touchpad. It did not come with an external battery. I bought a non-working rc car at Goodwill for a couple of bucks. I can use the parts for other things, but it had an 8 AA cell battery compartment. With a little surgery and a few electronics, I can make a nice compact external battery holder that I can attach to the back of the unit. Original article:
