I am a Linux User

There are some things you just are. Painters are painters because they paint.  Writers are writers because they write.  Whatever you identify with being (writer, painter, et. al) you are that because of what you DO…what you produce.  I am Linux user because of what I produce with Linux…what I do with it.  I don’t simply use it…I create with it.  I make it do what I want. People give me a screwdriver and I pry things open with it…I … Continue Reading →


Do Package Managers Spoil Us?

I thought of this interesting question the other day while messing around with Slackware 9.0 which was one of the last versions of Slackware to come on a single disk. The goal was to try to take a Slackware 9.0 install to the most recent stable and it was almost accomplished. Glibc was the largest hassle…and I made it to Slackware 11.0 before something caused things to not boot at all. All things considered, I spent 3 days on trying … Continue Reading →

Some Random Linux Observations

Ubuntu is the only Linux distro I know of that has its alpha releases slashdotted and dugg…which is a real shame; I think there are more that deserve this treatment from linux media sites. Different Linux distros and desktop camps should recognize their differences as providing choice instead of being something that makes them different. They all have the same goals…to get people using open source software and to provide a great experience for the user.  Differences are always looked … Continue Reading →


Is the iPhone killing the Playstation?

What? The Playstation and iPhone? You bet. First, some background and reference material for that background. Now using the same information linked above, I can logically say that the iPhone may be killing the Playstation. After all, this comparison can be drawn…both have browsers right? Both are on platforms that aren’t PC’s. I draw this conclusion of course to show the fallacy represented in the article above. I love market share studies. They’re ultimately inaccurate. Yet many websites quote them … Continue Reading →


Are You Secure?

When I was little, I was afraid of heights (to a degree, I still am). Therefore, you hardly ever caught me climbing trees or swinging high…anytime anyone wanted to elevate past my head level in any shape and form I was grounded..literally. The feeling of security given when my feet touched the ground was comforting. I knew from experience that the ground would be there…it wasn’t going to swallow me up whole (didn’t know much about earthquakes at this time). … Continue Reading →
