Since I have a blog on here, it makes sense to make some use of it. Never having a blog before this is going to be very experimental. I plan on structuring this blog as a journal of my Linux experience. Hopefully people will find this blog helpful and/or entertaining reading about my struggles and triumphs.

David Tangye's Linux blogs

Posted 08-13-2008 at 07:17 AM by DavidTangye

OK, so LQ has automatically set me up with a blogsite here. That's nice, thanks LQ. I have various other blogsites running already, mainly using Blogger, and for Linux I also have a blog on my 'Google Sites' site, which are really nice and easy to write and attach links and pictures into (See

This LQ blog seems a bit simplistic at present: eg, where can I easily add a link from within the editor of this post? However I shall keep...

Telnet to Windows from *nix

Posted 08-12-2008 at 03:47 PM by grepmasterd

I've had varying results, but in some setups I've noticed that I cannot
invoke a usable telnet session to a windows telnet server (running
Microsoft's native telnet server). The return key doesn't work and the
characters I type are sent in chunks. I've mainly run into this behavior
when I've configured the windows telnet server to run on a non-standard
port, like port 923.

Crash and Partial Recovery

Posted 08-12-2008 at 10:35 AM by MooseMagnet

The laptop crashed yesterday. Said it didn't have enough disk space to log on. Don't know what happened.
Used the Ubuntu 7.4 disk to rebuild. Then used the rsync to retrieve stuff from the USB drive. That device saved my butt.
Got hung up on the rsync command, until I remembered that the OPTION is NOT optional. This is still confusing to me.
