My Wife Has Been Converted

Posted 09-23-2010 at 07:28 PM by Larry Webb

My wife was a die hard M$ user. She likes her games but somewhere along the way she got a nasty mal-ware. I refused to clean it up this time. I did not have a recovery partition or cd so I told her if she wanted to continue to use M$ she would have to figure out how to clean it herself or start using linux. I showed her several options and she chose knoppix. I think in a couple of more weeks when she gets more comfortable she will be hooked permanent.

Updated 12-28-2010 at 09:31 PM by MrCode

This is just something I wrote a little while ago to challenge two things: the reasons behind my existential angst, and my C skills (well, pseudo-C ):

Somwehere buried deep in the source code of mankind...

Code:
int FreeWillCheck(Human* h,char* emotion)
{
	int status = 0; //assume free will exists for now

	if(FreeWillExists() == 0 && //if free will exists
	   FreeWillBelief(h) == 0)  //and you believe free will exists

A few quick reviews: Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and OpenSUSE

I've been working with QEMU-KVM for the past couple of months. I've found that it is exceptionally useful to have virtual machines -- sandboxes -- where I can experiment with stuff without affecting my configuration or installation. In other words, if I really mess up, only the virtual machine gets hurt.

My primary purpose right now for QEMU-KVM is building Linux From Scratch using Slackware 13.1 as the host in the virtual machine. I created a 60 GB blank disk image, installed Slackware...
