Much ado about Nix...

Posted 06-24-2009 at 08:39 PM by Shingoshi
Updated 06-24-2009 at 11:57 PM by Shingoshi

I want to introduce some of you to a system you may not be aware of. The system is called Nix. It has it's own package manager, which in some ways may behave/perform like Gentoo's emerge. The major difference between Nix and virtually every other Linux distribution, is that Nix has none of the directories common to Linux. Every package is essentially it's own filesystem.

I'm inviting Nix users to come and discuss this in detail, so others can get a more authoritative view of how things...

How to Install Tuxonice in Ubuntu

Posted 06-24-2009 at 01:16 AM by sridhar11

TuxOnIce is most easily described as the Linux equivalent of Windows’ hibernate functionality,but better. It saves the contents of memory to disk and powers down. When the computer is started up again, it reloads the contents and the user can continue from where they left off. No documents need to be reloaded or applications reopened and the process is much faster than a normal shutdown and start up.

Recently, I had one of those "life's getting in the way" moments. In fact, it was the whole day. It left me very disturbed with the outcome of a project I had hoped to have finished and presently running. But things didn't turn out that way, and I wrote one of my friends ranting about my current misery.

Now mind you, this is someone who has known for about 20 years now. In fact, he says he knew me longer than that. We just hadn't formed a friendship until years after our being...

Last month I wrote about the crossroads I was at in my career. Well, I decided it was time to take some action. Since I’m new to certifications, I talked to some friends in the field and did some looking around online, and decided to pick up PMP video training from PREPLOGIC.COM (here: http://www.preplogic.com/products/vi...s.aspx?eid=391). I love it. I bought the PMP practice exam from PrepLogic, too but I’ve really just started looking at that.
