My Wife Has Been Converted

Posted 09-23-2010 at 06:28 PM by Larry Webb

My wife was a die hard M$ user. She likes her games but somewhere along the way she got a nasty mal-ware. I refused to clean it up this time. I did not have a recovery partition or cd so I told her if she wanted to continue to use M$ she would have to figure out how to clean it herself or start using linux. I showed her several options and she chose knoppix. I think in a couple of more weeks when she gets more comfortable she will be hooked permanent.

An amusing take on my whole "free will or not" problem

Posted 09-21-2010 at 08:37 PM by MrCode

This is just something I wrote a little while ago to challenge two things: the reasons behind my existential angst, and my C skills (well, pseudo-C ):

Somwehere buried deep in the source code of mankind...

Code:
int FreeWillCheck(Human* h,char* emotion)
{
	int status = 0; //assume free will exists for now

	if(FreeWillExists() == 0 && //if free will exists
	   FreeWillBelief(h) == 0)  //and you believe free will exists

A few quick reviews: Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and OpenSUSE

I've been working with QEMU-KVM for the past couple of months. I've found that it is exceptionally useful to have virtual machines -- sandboxes -- where I can experiment with stuff without affecting my configuration or installation. In other words, if I really mess up, only the virtual machine gets hurt.

My primary purpose right now for QEMU-KVM is building Linux From Scratch using Slackware 13.1 as the host in the virtual machine. I created a 60 GB blank disk image, installed Slackware...

ISCSI no new device in /dev

Posted 09-21-2010 at 11:46 AM by Felicia1326

Well, here it is kiddies, the answer to the no device in /dev. One hasn't been created and presented to the server yet. I know it sounds crazy, but this was my answer and I honestly hope it is yours as well.
If you're using a NetApp device my my my are you in luck. The description that follows will outline setting up iSCSI in RHEL 5.5 and then hooking up with NetApp all the way through to adding the entry to /etc/fstab...yay.
So buckle up and remember, without sunshine, all is?...
