Hi all, I am an up and coming Linux/AIX/HP-UX server admin. I have the basic knowledge I need to handle day to day activities, but I want more knowledge. I also have an hour drive each day in which I have been listening to music, but I want to make the most of this time and listen to audiobooks that may help build my professional career. Any ideas?

Reddit: Why don't the people who hate systemd use BSD instead?

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual.
