Subject: Top 3 applications menu extensions for GNOME 3

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In going through the list of available extensions, I came across three that are good candidates to either replace or complement the Activities button. Like all extensions, they are free and easy to install.

Subject: Making Linux Work

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The fear of failure factor is one reason why potential newcomers to the Linux operating system never complete the switch. After all, when was the last time you saw a sign in a big-box computer store identifying the aisle labeled "Linux Loaded?" Most desktops and laptops come out of the box with Microsoft Windows preinstalled.

Subject: Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

When I started using computers, you could still find the schematic at the back of a computer reference manual. Back then, the intro to computer programming looked like this:10 PRINT “COMMODORE 64”20 GOTO 10Literally, look it up! While I was learning how to write simple programs, I picked up a key piece of information that has served me very well over the years:If you take the extra time to understand how a computer works you will understand how to program it.

In 2006, the family computer on which our digital photographs were storedhad a hard drive failure. Because I'm obsessed with backups, it shouldn'thave been a big deal, except that my backups had been silently failingfor months. Although I certainly learned a lesson about verifying my backups,I also realized it would be nice to have an off-site storage locationfor our photos.

Subject: Have you seen Anaconda’s new UI?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The official rationale for the new design is that the current “graphical UI is really starting to show its age, both to the users and to the developers. Adding new features (especially for new storage technologies) is difficult, and there’s no apparent overall design to the user experience.” From a purely end-user perspective, I disagree with the “there’s no apparent overall design to the user experience,” because the current UI offers a far more coherent user-experience than this new one.
