How do I learn?

Posted 09-06-2011 at 04:11 AM by m3rl1n

In my last (b)log I mentioned how fast my family adapted from Windows to Linux, and how time consuming it is to catch-up on Linux command-line jargon, GUI stuff, gizmo's, distro's and what is there not....

I finally discovered a nice website and educational program that will gradually teach me Linux. Nostalgia creeps upon me for what I have read so far. I am talking about Ian Shields LPI exam preperations: Junior Level Linux Administration, found at: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/li...101/index.html...

Jean-Luc Picard: captain of star ship Enterprise. His log entries always intriged me. I guess I will be using 'my blog' as a log just like he does. It is not coincidental that I use his name. In 1985 I had an awkward experience as I was expectingly staring at my newly purhased Tandy 1000ex. I remember waiting for something bad to happen to the A:> (a-prompt) on my amber monochrome screen.

There were no programs available other than a dull calendar, at the time supplied on a 5.25"...

First 15 minutes on F15!!!

Well.. I wanted to share my feel when I went live on F15. yeah!

Here goes how I was literally lovelocked with Gnome 3.0 and F15 on the day I installed it.

Phenomenal GUI. Am pretty sure M$ will leech its glossy touch. F15 with G3.0 is gonna lure lotta gui-freaks to Linux.

Though the GUI looked so gr8 with oh-is-this-really-linux kinda transitions, I felt a lil hard to figure out how to configure static IP for my WiFi adapter. Well. Perhaps FC15/G3 could

Hi,

I know you might wonder why I'm posting this here. But I have been trying to do this for some hours and finally got it. But before then, I searched the web and could not find an easier way to send all kinds of files (texts, media, even unknown files). I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, using Blueman 1.21-4 bluetooth manager and I did this with a BB Curve 8520 (but this method will surely work for any bluetooth software, device, phone or PC).

Gaming in Linux; slackware 13.37

Posted 08-17-2011 at 10:23 AM by linuxpokernut

Back in 2008, I started playing Eve Online. Its one hell of a game, some call it "spreadsheets online" because you wind up needing a spreadsheet to play. It's the worlds largest single shard game server. And back in December of '08, it had a linux client.

It was not a true stand alone client, but it was a Cedega crossover. When you installed it it installed the Cedega engine with just what you need to play. Back then the game had 2 graphics options, "classic" and...
