2 Operating Systems, 1 user folder.

Posted 07-16-2009 at 11:36 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I normally have 2 User Folders. 1 for Windows and 1 for Linux.

Usually this is because I have a nicely sized partition for Linux (50GB - 100GB on a 200GB drive for instance). But due to circumstances earlier mentioned in my previous blogs, and partly to do with my laziness, and also due to my inquisitive nature, I've decided to give my Linux partition a small piece of the pie on this drive.

MS, EU & IE

Posted 07-16-2009 at 07:41 AM by rich_c

As you may be aware ,Microsoft responded to EU concerns about competing fairly in the web browser market by shipping Windows 7 with no browser in Europe. Call me cynical, but this would seem to be a case of not entering into the spirit of what was required.

Back In Time – A Simple backup tool for ubuntu

Posted 07-15-2009 at 04:40 PM by sridhar11

Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux inspired from “flyback project” and “TimeVault”.The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories.Keep in mind that Back In Time is just a GUI. The real magic is done by rsync (take snapshots and restore), diff (check if somethind changed) and cp (make hardlinks).

Back In Time acts as a “user mode” backup system. This means that you can backup/restore only folders you have write access to (actually you can backup...
