podcast updates

Posted 05-25-2020 at 12:19 AM by zaivala

The current team at mintCast podcast, which includes me, took over in October 2018. Since then, there have been over 201,000 total downloads of our podcast. That's cool. When we took over, the podcast averaged around 2,650 downloads per episode. By the end of 2019, we are averaging over 3,300 downloads per episode.

On top of that, my other podcast, Distrohoppers' Digest, has released its 13th episode, about one per month since Tony Hughes and I started it in April 2019, and we're...

Old New Box

Posted 05-11-2020 at 12:53 AM by zaivala

I spent some time today successfully setting up a box I inherited when a friend died a few years ago. It is in surprisingly good condition with great specs except for the i3 CPU in it, and is easily upgraded to an i5 or i7 or even Xeon. I cloned my M.2 SSD in the Galago Pro 2, but made some errors getting it installed; I had to reinstall Mint twice, but then got it completely updated and almost completely back to what I had in the Galago. I also did not lose anything in my OpenMandriva Lx 4.1 partition....

Finally learned something

Posted 05-09-2020 at 11:44 PM by zaivala

About 3-4 years ago I bought a Humble Bundle of StackSkills classes, Linux Power Bundle. Last night I finally finished 3 of them and have a good start on a 4th (about 68%). I can no longer consider myself exactly a n00b, although I'm sure I didn't learn everything the instructor thought he taught me.

Distrohop updates

Posted 04-26-2020 at 10:50 PM by zaivala

I accidentally installed Kubuntu 20.04 over KDE neon. No biggie, same thing, but I was expecting to be replacing my installation of Ubuntu Studio 20.04 Beta. So then I had to find something else to go on that partition. I tried Fedora but could not get confirmation that it would install correctly or would get the EFI in the right place. So I just installed Sabayon. It took less than 2.5 hours, an extremely quick installation for Gentoo, especially considering I was using an old USB2 stick and installing...

Ouch

I got in a really bad car accident Wednesday morning. From the look of the video, it should have killed me, but it didn't even break anything. I've been in tons of pain and whatnot but that is receding, at a rate which amazes me. As I was driving a company car, and as they have a point system which this accident puts me over, I have been separated from my employment, as they euphemistically put it. I'm hoping I use the time off healing to find a job in computers, which I've been wanting but think...
