R.I.P. "What Are You Doing Now"

Posted 06-28-2010 at 07:27 PM by damgar

I think the title says it all. Today my favorite brain dump died. But in all honesty she'd gotten a little slow in her old age and I'm not one to cry over closed threads, so cheers to the mods for doing what had to be done.

Irssi the irc client that rocks

Posted 06-26-2010 at 05:42 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC, XMPP and ICB protocols via plugins.

Even the dpkg bot in #debian agrees irssi rocks:
<dpkg> i guess irssi is the best <IRC> client ever. "aptitude install irssi" and read . See also

Gigabyte MD800 3G/gsm/CDMA MODEM

Posted 06-26-2010 at 03:57 AM by qlue (My Ubuntu)

I bought a modem for my netbook a while back and battled to get it to work.
What I learnt was;
just ejecting the fake cd switches it to modem mode
if it's connected when I switch on my netbook, it automatically defaults to modem mode.
it needs the usbserial module to be loaded.

The last bit can be done in two ways. first, from the terminal shell, type:
qlue@AcerAspireOne:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

The Hives

Posted 06-25-2010 at 02:58 AM by lupusarcanus (Lone Wolf)

A really awesome band y'all should listen too NOW. Much better than the mainstream stuff floating around and reminiscent of the 80's era of spectacular music. Much awesomeness this band has. Just putting out the word: The Hives. Worst you could do is Google up a few of their songs and lend them an ear...

AntiX 8.5 i486 and i686 Core Iso

Posted 06-24-2010 at 05:37 PM by rokytnji

A Cli installer is now available for AntiX 8.5. This is for the hardware challenged computer users or if you want to start with nothing and build your Applications and Desktop from Scratch using Debian Squeeze Repositories or even Sidux ones . The related thread is in this forum below. I have installed i686 core iso and have had a enjoyable experience installing what I want. From Desktop (Fluxbox) to File Managers. Pretty cool.
