It's in the Air.

Posted 12-23-2008 at 06:42 PM by Hitboxx

Bonjour,

I just tried Adobe's put-the-web-on-your-desktop thing called Air and it's pretty neat. It is similar to those widgets, gadgets,..etc but on a grandeur scale. Though still in the infancy as far as application availability is concerned, nonetheless it is a neat platform and it works.

Virtual machines

Posted 12-23-2008 at 02:17 PM by jozik

Well, that was easy: installed Virtualbox (using synaptic) and made a couple of virtual machines: Debian and WindowsXP. It's really simple, just don't forget to make a virtual disk and to mount de CD/DVD-drive or ISO-image with the installation disk(-image).

I'll use the virtual Debian machine for my LPI training,...

Is KDE 4 supposed to be such a dis-organised pile of shite ???

Ok, so over the last weekend, I was doing my regular updates - a habit I picked up when I was using sidux, but it made sense to try and update regularly.

Anyway, I reload the Kubuntu 8.04 sources and it tells me that there's a dist-upgrade available i.e. to 8.10 (whatever they've called it).

Ok thinks me, I might as well, so I fire it up........

It gets all the way through and then says I have to reboot the system - well it had installed a newer kernel...
