Ubuntu Linux (Gusty Gibbon) Follow Up

Yesterday, I wrote this entry about Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon which is currently in Alpha testing. I went out to dinner after I wrote it to come back to a bunch of comments on that blog entry. These comments have continued to come in throughout today too. I'm very glad to see the responses and that people have took time to … [Read more...]

Ubuntu Linux (Gusty Gibbon) Disappointment

Yesterday evening, I was in need of something to do and every now and then I get these urges to try out Linux as a desktop OS again. I saw that they had released a new beta version of Ubuntu (the Gusty Gibbon release - which is scheduled for final release sometime in October) and decided I'd try it out in a dual boot with … [Read more...]

Logitech MX Revolution and diNovo Edge Review

First off, I'd like to thank Pierce again for these recommendations. Okay, so I had one of those Microsoft media keyboard/mouse packages for the longest time. It was decent for the most part, until recently they started to really act up even after I had changed the batteries. I was getting pretty upset with them … [Read more...]

iTunes Eats RAM

So you add more RAM to your machine which now has a total of 3GB of RAM, sounds great right? Well, it is. However, now my applications or should I say at least one of them has decided it can now use 640MB of RAM. By the way, I had 2GB of RAM previously before I added another 1GB stick and I never exceeded 1.7GB being … [Read more...]

Black Apple Macbook (2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB Ram, 160GB HDD)

So I just got a brand new Macbook this week. So far I'm loving it. It's excellent. I was a bit worried when I ordered it to be honest as I've never really used a Mac before except for the crappy ones on at school. However, when I turned it on for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. Setting up my user account was … [Read more...]

Safari On Windows – We Now Ask Ourselves Why?

Alright, another browser to add to the list. Now lets see - we have the ever popular Firefox, the scrutinized Internet Explorer, the known-but-not-so-well-known Opera, and now the elegant Safari. Of course, those are not the only ones out there but they are the most used I would say. In this post I'm going to try and … [Read more...]

Windows vs Linux (The Security Wars)

Here's a good article that goes pretty in depth on the whole Windows vs Linux security topic. What I especially like about this article is that it's not biased to any one group, it's completely independent. So you'll get both sides of the story instead of just one or a side of the story that's a not completely unbiased. … [Read more...]

Dual Monitors In Vista (Extend Your Desktop)

Recently I bought a second 19" wide screen monitor to go along with my current 19" wide screen monitor. They're both Acer Monitors. However, one is black and one is silver. I originally had the silver and when I went to buy the second one I couldn't find the silver one anywhere so I ended up having to get a black one. … [Read more...]

UStream.tv – The Next Big Thing?

In the realm of the whole Web 2.0 thing, many new web sites have emerged. We have YouTube, Digg.com, Twitter.com, and oh so many more. Now we have UStream.tv to add to the list. First off, what is UStream.tv? Well, I've been playing with it for a bit and it's basically a "Live YouTube" - What I mean by that is instead … [Read more...]

The RIAA Collecting Royalties From Non-RIAA Artists?

Ok, I read this article. After I read it, I thought for a second or two - that's all it took. I then continued to say to myself "What the...". What exactly are they doing? And better yet, how can they get away with that? I'm all for supporting the artists. Hence why I have such a problem with this; I mean, how does … [Read more...]
