Here we go. I don't know how much I have to offer, but I enjoy writing and tinkering with operating systems. I tend to do a lot of research when I hit problems, and having learned not to reinvent the wheel, I also write my solutions down. I try to keep them succinct and to the point, but I have fun writing them as well. Hopefully I will find the time to consistently put these solutions here, and hopefully they will actually be useful.

The 'puter has landed!

Just got Slackware 12.2 up and running on the new computer mentioned in previous entry. Everything went OK. Too busy playing with it to write any more now, and I need feeding. Tear myself away from my new toy and get some food.

This is a nice way to inspect changes and to move changes from one version to another version of the same file.

I'm not having that!

Last year my isp without my knowledge were doing a trial run for "phorm". It's basically a way to snoop on my surfing habits so they can target me with adverts that will appeal to me (nothing appeals to me, I have a brain and I decide if I want something).

Even though there is a lot of resentment to this, they are going to go ahead with it. We don't stand much chance in "Browns Britain" because that slimeball will agree with anything. The isp's doing this phorm...
