Allow me to describe my 'computer cave' .... (-;

Posted 04-13-2011 at 05:39 PM by DethB4DCaf (Random Musings and [generally Linux-related] observations...)

Greetin's y'all!

My 'nym' is DethB4DCaf and THE most important thing you need to know about me is that I am born and bred to be a southpaw [left-handed]. Once you understand THAT, why, everything else about me will eventually make sense... (-; (-;

So, for my FIRST BLOG (sounds of clapping and cheering can be heard in the distance) please allow me to tell you about the computers, laptops, servers, handheld devices and other computer-related pieces and parts that...

Nokia N900

The Maemo community now have the Community SSU. In my view, that more than makes up for all the corporate politics & Microsoft BS! The N900 is back to being arguably the best uber-geek phone you can get!

Disk Utility (Gnome Disk Utility) (palimpsest)

Posted 04-13-2011 at 03:44 AM by spazticclown

palimpsest or Gnome Disk Utility
This utility is great, it can not only check SMART status on your local disk but connect up to a server and check status there.
File -> Connect to server...
Enter the server address and password, your remote drives will be lined up down the left side and you can view SMART status, easy.

The second benefit is the the green circle for SMART status ok, this helps my tired eyes from scanning the console print out from smartctl.

I've been linked to this site many times is the past but I have just recently signed up as a member. Its a great place to learn. Not having any personal, "conventional" friends that are into Linux, this is a great place to ask questions and pick brains.

Thanks to all the knowledgeable people who spend some of their time asking/answering questions.
