When I first bought my current workstation (currently running Wheezy) several years ago, I got a base station that featured two DVI ports and a VGA port. "Hot Dog" I thought, "I can plug three monitors into the back of this thing, one into the side, and with the laptop screen I can have up to 5 monitors on my workstation!" Imagine my disappointment when as soon as I plugged in the second DVI monitor, the display on the laptop screen disappeared. I was really looking forward to...

Testing a new toy

Posted 11-30-2013 at 12:24 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

First thing to do in an emergency: Nothing!

Posted 11-28-2013 at 10:33 PM by flshope

A few days ago I had a heart-stopping moment on my main linux box running Ubuntu 12.04. I had just deleted two links from my desktop when suddenly I discovered that none of the remaining links on the desktop were working.
