Short bio: Computer Scientist, FOSS supporter (read more)
Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Just thought I'd throw an update out there. I haven't blogged here in over a year, and that trend is likely to continue into the foreseeable future.
I recently moved off-campus to a lovely little apartment. I like the privacy and the space, but I do miss having constant access to the internet.
Let's settle this once and for all...
Here's what's new in the life of Spinlock... it's been awhile since I last blogged, but a lot has happened in the past month and it's time to bring everybody up to date. More on Slack 11, look-alikes, Linux on a laptop, and why you shouldn't judge a Macbook by your imagination after the jump.
When you hear about spam in the news, they're always talking about email spam... but of late, the spammers are taking a different tack, and it seems that they're not giving up without a fight.
Ever have one of those days when you can't stand end users? I know I have.
There are several expectations end users have for people creating software, or even Linux distros. They want it to work on their hardware, they want it to be stable, and they want it right now. But, at the same time, new releases shouldn't come too often, or it messes up the feng shui of their systems.
Just thought I'd throw this out there. I registered to reply to a comment, and since I've got my own blog...
Anyway, you can check here for my adventures in Slax Linux, as well as whatever else I pick up along the way. I've got great plans for some of the old computers I have lying around, and I'll update as I learn things. I've got things to say, but I don't have so much time to say them... Oh well, that's life when you're in spinlock.
