Comment Everywhere in every weather everyday (Score 1) 304

I ride to work on my bike everyday in every weather. I have several bikes and different clothing choices for different weather conditions. For me it is quicker than taking public transport (for which I'm refusing to buy tickets) and since I don't own a car I don't really have any other choice. It's just a matter of getting used to it and it provides some exercise, especially if you sit in front of a computer all day.

This is indeed a real pain. We are using it to load balance our LMS at the university I work at and also offer WebDAV access to files in the system. Files are delivered via HTTP 1.1 chunked transfer encoding which is not supported in the backend. Apparently the nginx guys are working on a proxy plus module with limited HTTP 1.1 support (like chunked transfer encoding). Right now we are using a dedicated machine which is not behind the load balancer for the WebDAV traffic, which of course isn't an ideal solution.

Othewise nginx is really a fantastic little EngineX. ;-)

Comment apt-egt install xubuntu-desktop (Score 1) 685

I just recently got a netbook and installed Ubuntu 11.10 on it - because the hardware support really isn't all that bad. Normally I'm a conservative Debian guy. After trying to convince Unity to look the way I want it to look and failing miserably I just did an 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop' and now I'm set. Really love it.
