I have recently been reading a book called Ubuntu Hacks by Jonathan Oxer, Kyle Rankin & Bill Childers, published by O'Reilly and Associates. I didn't expect to become a Grand Ubuntu Master by reading a single book, but I was hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks. If you want to really get to know Ubuntu, then you should grab a copy of this book and follow the bouncing dot.
Webilder is a handy little program that allows you to download photos from flickr and import photos from webshots to display as backgrounds on your Linux desktop.
A week or so ago I went along to the Ubuntu Developer Summit at Google HQ. This sort of conversation makes me very cynical about the relevance of the OSDL and LSB. It was a shame that Mark Shuttleworth didn’t show up - his blog entry is the only reason I went along.
In this article I describe how to install and setup the Cacti in a ISPConfig Server. There aren't many differences from installing in other ISP Managers or standalone Apache installations. I tried many others solutions, but Cacti is very simple and fast to implement.
For some, their Web browser of choice is just as emotionally charged as their choice in operating systems. For the rest of us, there are several quality Web browsers to choose from, and Firefox 2 certainly holds its own.
Want to run Linux on the PlayStation 3 but can't be bothered with the hassle of installing it? Then head over to online auction site eBay where one of Sony's next-generation consoles is on offer pre-loaded with Fedora Core 5 Linux.
Ubuntu will run fine after the installation. Windows XP will run too but not for long. And the useful Dell Utility Partition is gone (because the MBR has changed). You think you can fix it by FIXMBR and get the Windows NT Bootloader back. Great. You just mess up your harddisk further.

In 1982, I attended computer camp. I know, this sounds like a "One time, at band camp. . ." story, but it's not. This was computer camp. It took place at the little-known Eastern Oregon State College, and it was the first year EOSC offered computer camp.
Although its name sounds like that of a bacterium, Coccinella is a nice cross-platform open source Jabber client. While Jabber, and IM clients in general, are a dime a dozen, Coccinella sports a few nifty features that make it worth considering.
Open source databases can save enterprises up to 60 per cent over proprietary products, according to data collected by Forrester Research.
Software maker Adobe may sue Microsoft if it is not satisfied with the European Union's steps to ensure Microsoft's new operating system does not shut out rivals, Adobe's chief executive said.
Stop the presses! Google extended its advertising model to that most mobile of media, the newspaper. It sounds crazy, especially in light of the reaction to certain advertising moves the search engine made earlier this year. But this latest maneuver just might be more successful.
Open source licences... much of a muchness? Indeed. Let me start by saying, if you happen to think that all open source software is created equal, you are very, very wrong.
The 126.96.36.199 stable kernel update has been released. This update is a bit smaller than its predecessors, but there's still a fair number of fixes here, including at least one which is security-related.
ASSP stands for Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy. The ASSP server project is an Open Source platform-independent transparent SMTP proxy server that leverages numerous methodologies and technologies to both rigidly and adaptively identify spam. In short ASSP is the most kickass solution that is both free and works great. It reduced spam to an absolute minimum for me.
ifconfig - the ubiquitous command bundled with any Unix/Linux OS is used to setup any/all the network interfaces such as ethernet, wireless, modem and so on that are connected to your computer. ifconfig command provides a wealth of knowledge to any person who takes the time to look at its output.
The Jokosher team are proud to announce the second pre-release of their simple yet powerful audio studio for the GNOME desktop. The new 0.2 version of the software has been in active development since July, and has packed Jokosher with the core features to perform full audio recording and production on the Linux desktop.
Spreadsheets are primarily used online. For this reason, printing them can be challenging even to experienced users. However, OpenOffice.org offers more help than most spreadsheets with printing, starting with the introduction of page styles. In this entry, I'll explain how Calc page styles can help with printing spreadsheets.
Well, my new book will be published any time now. A sample copy was here when I got back from San Francisco, and it looks schaweeeet.
