And a measure of Wine to all...

Posted 06-29-2009 at 03:20 PM by Shingoshi

I'm going to raise the stakes here. What I'm about to say may rile some of you. But I really think it needs to be said, and attention given to this.

I believe it is counterproductive for the open-source community to become complacent in the imagination applied to the vision of what direction we should take with development. Given the fact that open-source software is under direct attack by proprietary systems (one in particular), I firmly believe emphasis needs to be given to counter...

Linux Netbooks: back to the facts

Posted 06-29-2009 at 06:27 AM by erlik

There has been a lot of talk about the success or failure of the Linux netbooks recently, to the point that it is now a very controversial topic. I think that it is time to go back to the facts and perform an objective analysis of the Linux netbook market. You will see that Linux netbooks have been neither a complete success nor a complete failure.

I'm going to list a few links showing two of my projects. One of them is completed. The second is just in the beginning stages.

This is the project in which I installed my first liquid-cooled system. You'll notice in this project I had special interest in reaching the coldest temperatures possible. I had been doing research into the use of hybrid systems, combining phase-change and heat-transfer fluid designs. These designs are now being reconsidered in my second project.

Another of my occasional bouts of insomnia, so what better way to waste some time than a rambling blog entry.
I know I said in a post in the forums that nothing from Microsoft was going to pollute my relatively new desktop. Well, I've gone back on that. I installed XP Pro in VirtualBox, just as an experiment, out of curiosity, not any need. I'd forgotten how tedious the Windows installation is. Anyway, while it was slowly progressing, I was watching Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band...

All About SUDO " The Hihhen things of sudo"

Posted 06-27-2009 at 12:14 AM by vap16oct1984

sudo - execute a command as another user

sudo allows a permitted user to execute a command as the superuser or another user, as specified in the sudoers file. The real and effective uid and gid are set to match those of the target user as specified in the passwd file (the group vector is also initialized when the target user is not root). By default, sudo requires that users authenticate themselves with a password (NOTE: by default this is the user's password, not...
