Me and IT

Posted 08-08-2008 at 08:20 AM by brianL

What better time to start a blog than after a sleepless night? It shuts down the rational left hemisphere, and gives the creative right hemisphere full rein. That's my excuse, anyway. I think blogs should be about anything and everything of interest to the blogger. And this one will be. Naturally, I'll start with:

Me and IT
=========
I'm a late starter. Before 2002, I didn't own a computer, knew next to nothing about them, and didn't care about them. I was 57, unemployed,...

Ubuntu, a virtual and a real Windows XP

Posted 08-08-2008 at 03:26 AM by bitpicker (Bitpicker's Blog: Random musings and rants)

Here's something I just noted while working with Ubuntu 7.10 and a Win XP I still need for three programs I use frequently at work, namely Corel Draw, Dreamweaver and our ERP software.

Ubuntu by itself will run within 150 MB on my machine, which is equipped with 1.5 GB of RAM. The remaining RAM is marked as 'free' by gkrellm, though I realize that this doesn't mean it's not used as cache or buffer; but it is available for programs as they get started. Swap space is completely unused....

Answers to weblog entries

Posted 08-07-2008 at 04:04 AM by donax

I am not sure I can use LQ Weblog for information on projects such as the use of GAPipeline-0.3.0

I could not find a way to publish edited dialogues, not even a way to comment on a weblog entry. So far I leave out LinuxQuestions which anyway seem to be more desktop-related.

A nice place for some questions, but not for my needs.

Genome Analysis Pipeline

Posted 08-07-2008 at 03:50 AM by donax

I started searching for some information regarding compilation of a genetics analysis program, source GAPipeline-0.3.0.tar.gz

The source is specific for a sequencing machine called Solexa.

I will try to keep information about using and working with the system side of the Solexa software on this weblog besides our internal site.
