Web design.

Posted 03-07-2009 at 03:43 PM by nenpa8lo

Recently I have started to learn webdesign - and amount of languages that I have to gather is scarry. HTML, XML, PHP, JS next mySQL queries and also would be nice to know AJAX and.... That is enough. Why this could not be simpler? One language, one standard and lets keep moving.

Distribution confusion

Posted 03-06-2009 at 07:54 PM by Indymaynard

Recently, I had to make a tough decision. Every Linux user will face this particular decision at least once whether they know it or not. I guess that the hardest part about it was that I didn't know if my choice would be good or bad. Even more frustrating was the fact that I believe that no one should have to face this choice.

For at least four years, Fedora has been my distribution of choice. It began when I tried Red Hat 9 for the first time. Honestly, my first experience was terrible...

svn delete huge tree but leave modified files

Posted 03-06-2009 at 04:31 PM by ciotog

Posted 03-06-2009 at 11:12 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

Back when I started using Linux, I was using Madrake 8.2 as my distro (back in 2001, maybe 2002). The default DE was KDE. And it looked different from the Windows I was used to, but that didn't scare me.

The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that Slackware has disappeared from my desktop. Don't panic! I haven't abandoned my favourite distro. I'm planning on getting a new box: one with more WUMPH!, KAPOW!, and ZZZAPPP!! (More HDD capacity, RAM, and a faster/multicore processor, etc). So I'm going back to doing a bit of distrohopping on my present one, because it's about a couple of years since I indulged in that pursuit. There's newer versions of distros I've tried before, and some not yet...
