1 day downtime

Just got online after 1-day downtime.
It's all because of me.
About a week ago my router(PI 200mhz PC) started making a noise, I got it open to see what's causing it. It was old 4x4 fan. I "fixed" it(in fact stroke it several times) and forgot about it. I was wrong. I needed to buy a new fan once it happened.
Yesterday it started making a noise again and I reacted slowly. While I was listening to music I didn't hear that, so, after some time it just hanged. Because...

PostgreSQL reconfigure script

Posted 02-10-2010 at 09:54 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Newbies As Guinea Pigs?

Posted 02-10-2010 at 05:58 AM by dixiedancer (A Simple Kid's Opinion)

There is no excuse, in my opinion, for putting unstable, experimental beta software as a default in a ready release of a Linux distro that claims to be "beginner-friendly," as Ubuntu has done with Karmic Koala! Both Grub-2 and PulseAudio are still Beta, still unstable. Yet tried-and-proven ALSA is set aside in favor of PulseAudio. At least in Ubuntu and Kubuntu.

Victims of Their Own Success?

Posted 02-08-2010 at 06:32 PM by dixiedancer (A Simple Kid's Opinion)

I have a new saying...

I prefer to run applications rather than operating systems.
There are so many wonderful super-geeks who have worked very long and very hard to produce a desktop Linux that is simple enough for even a non-geeky kid like me to use. But not uncommonly, I hear them complaining that too many Linux users rely on the graphical interface and don't bother to learn the command line. It's kind of ironic, dontchya think? You wanted to make Linux easy enough for the non-geeky...
