My Choice of Avatar -- The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Posted 09-29-2010 at 10:45 AM by SaintDanBert

I have been asked why I use The Sorcerer's Apprentice glyph as an avatar. To answer that, you need to understand his story.

Mickey worked for a powerful sorcerer doing odd jobs around the castle. He carried wood and mopped and cleaned. All the while he watched as the sorcerer worked magic with his book of spells and magic hat. One evening, the sorcerer left his hat behind and went to bed. Mickey, tasked with sweeping and cleaning, borrowed the hat and magicked the broom to carry pales...

Feel guilty about winning an easy bet.

Posted 09-29-2010 at 04:40 AM by peonuser

Happen to be talking with an mswindows admin about disaster recovery. He was talking about how it was a challenge to do recovery. I made a bet that I could have network of computers running in no time and not even use a single hard drive. I would need one cdrom though. Of course I was told it could not be done. You can guess what happened next with the wallets.

Upgraded my private "Cloud" (aka web) server. It's faster now, but one or two apps did not make it. Was going to replace them anyway with newer versions. My own home automation software that is web controlled still works fine.

The All New Proprietary Software vs. FOSS MegaSuperEntry

Posted 09-29-2010 at 01:11 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

You could consider this the boxing ring of my blog: the place to flame away about FOSS (if you're on its side) or proprietary software (if you're on its side).

Please, however: Nothing risqué. No profanity (even if disguised), no images promoting violence against another member, and absolutely NO MALICIOUS CODE, especially if for Linux (and for Windows even, thanks to Jeremy). LQ is to remain a safe, comfortable, bully- and troll-free place for Linux users, and this blog is no exception....
