Journal: A possible new column

Journal by thephotoman

Okay, so I've had a wild hair up my butt, and as such, I've come up with a real use for this space.

What I'm going to do is turn this area into a joint column with The Daily Cougar, in which I recommend free software for ordinary people. Basically, it's got to be free as in speech and free as in beer as well as be something that the average person not only can use, but has a use for. Most of them are going to be drop-in replacements for proprietary solutions that actually work better, but a few will do unique things.

Furthermore, I'm also going to use this space for discussion about the software I discuss.

Journal: Some changes since last time

Journal by thephotoman
Well, I've changed my system specs. I now run Ubuntu on my desktop and Winsucks on my laptop. I needed something that could use iTunes, as I have a lot of music purchased through there. I know, I shouldn't be using DRM, but this was before I knew any better, when I was simply a consumer whore.

Journal: First Post!

Journal by thephotoman
Well, this is my first post in this journal. I've got a LiveJournal account, but you probably wouldn't be interested in that. I'll try to keep some of my techie stuff here, such as my Linux modifications/discoveries/whatnot. As a relative n00b to the world of *ix, I've got a lot to learn. Currently, I'm running FC1 on my desktop and Knoppix 3.6 on my laptop, but I'm planning on switching to Debian Sarge on the desktop soon, as I've got a broken RPM database on here, so I can't use apt-get for RPM or Yum. So unless anybody knows how to fix that, I'll be making that change around Thanksgiving or Christmas, whichever is more convienent.

(null cookie; hope that's ok)
