Me n Linux

Posted 12-14-2008 at 11:45 PM by leobing

My first Linux came on 21 1.2 meg floppies.
Of course it was command line only and I liked it but only as an interesting OS.
At the time I was running IBM PC dos and OS2 2.0 .
My computer was a 286 16 mhz with 2.4 megs ram.
I added a co-processor and was quite happy with it but I was doing some circuit board designing so I had to remove the Linux and put dos and OS2 back.

Awaiting Dell Inspiron 910

The loss of an office

Posted 12-14-2008 at 05:16 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Some time ago, I made a bold request to my employer. It seemed they had two server cabinets sitting unused in a storage room, and I couldn't help but wonder what was wrong with them. I asked the IT Director, and his response was "there's nothing wrong with them...they simply have the wrong shape mounting holes for all new servers we'd be purchasing from now on".

An idea brewed. An e-mail was sent. Some paperwork was filled out. And I had to find a trailer...soon. Turns...
