Debian Testing

Posted 08-15-2009 at 06:33 PM by FredGSanford

About three weeks or so ago I installed Debian on a Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop and everything was going pretty smooth.

I did a netinst with LXDE desktop and plugging in my USB Dell 2 button wheel mouse worked. It has the 2.6.26 kernel.

Around Aug, 09, I did a safe-upgrade and now the mouse is not working at all. The touchpad continues to work.

When I run dmesg | tail, I see 'New USB device found' after unplugging & re plugging the mouse in the port....

I mean, I'm very sorry, but!

I shouldn't do, but I had to laugh this morning when reading some news about the Boxer ex-world super middleweight champion, Chris Eubank. He paid 31,000 for 28 porcelain crowns fitted to cure his lisp! It worked! but now he has a whistle when pronouncing "s". I mean I'm sorry but I fell off my chair laughing!!!

Piga Software on Freshmeat

Posted 08-14-2009 at 11:08 AM by Chargh
Updated 08-14-2009 at 11:13 AM by Chargh (Repeated misspelling of Freshmeat)

It has been awhile since I have posted an update here. Anyway, Piga Software now has an account on Freshmeat and two of our finished applications have already been submitted and approved to be in its database. One is for PigaVision, and the other is for a graphical adventure game I first released in May.

pdf download

It may not be news to a lot of people, you may already have it, but I added "pdf download" to firefox! I like it. For instance, in the past if I saw some info on a web page, I used to either write it down or copy and paste. Then more than likely I would lose it. Pdf download puts an icon in the top right hand of firefox and it's just a matter of clicking the icon, and the web page will be converted to pdf and downloaded for you. I find this very handy for saving my blogs in case I lose...
