Building a local DNS cache will speed up your internet connection since the time for the translation job (converting domain names into IP addresses) will become negligible with the assumption that the DNS cache gets the information from the parent DNS.
Devnet: First...get yourself a blog and get it running. To get maximum exposure in the past, you had to use keywords. Now is no different. The keyword we’ll focus the most on is one that can get you thousands of hits in a few minutes if submitted to the right news outlet.
tech.blorge: Dell has seen fit to equip some of its laptop and desktop offerings with one of the most popular versions (also called distros) of Linux being Ubuntu. I have said many times before one of the biggest challenges for Linux is to make things easy to install and configure. I know plenty of people that think doing so is hard in Windows and for them it would be impossible in Linux.
Linux-Watch: The rumor was that Novell and Dell were going to partner up to deliver SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop). While nothing has come of that rumor -- yet -- Linux-Watch has learned from sources close to the companies involved that Novell, Dell, and Microsoft will be joining together in what seems to be an expansion of last November's Microsoft/Novell partnership.
Peer to peer communications provider Skype has released a tentative upgrade to the Linux version of its softphone client software, but users are not particularly happy with the progress.
Feedback on the page the company has announced Skype for Linux is not very positive and the early reports on Linux Devices are not particularly flattering about the progress made toward the next version.
Geared for the Linux pro or UNIX administrator, Linux System Administration was written to provide advice to manage a complete range of systems and servers.
This short howto will show how to record the soundcard output on Linux with Audacity while running in KDE.
The given task was in this case: record the output of a flash streaming online radio. In principle this shouldn’t be difficult because the data are on your computer - you just have to route them through a recording tool.
This isn't a tutorial for making your own distro- that requires time, money, and m4d-1337 technical 5k!11z. This is how to make a Live CD for an application of your choice.
==Why have a Live CD?==
Portability. A program would normally have to be installed several times in order for it to be able to be used wherever you go, so why not put it on a CD?
There are many articles on the Interwobble telling you how to set the process title on Linux; they all concentrate on the problem of placing an arbitrarily long string in argv to report status information in the process list.
To find the 22 innovators, instigators, and inventors to honor with a Rave Award this year, we started by looking for the most intriguing breakthroughs in the world today — then tracked down the individuals who made them happen.
I recently decided to try out Ubuntu to see what all the fuss was about. My notes here apply to Virtual PC 2007.
Downloading Ubuntu and Setting up the VPC
To start, download the iso image from the Ubuntu download site. I downloaded the 7.04 version first since I assumed the bigger the version number, the better, right? We’ll see this isn’t always the case as we’ll see.
Security, speed, compliance, and flexibility--all of these describe LightTPD which is rapidly redefining efficiency of a webserver; as it is designed and optimized for high performance environments.
Ever wanted to type in text terminal somehow funnier? This article describes two programs that can be used to generate a little less standard output in Linux console: cowsay and figlet.
In a recent post I asked why Apache is losing market share for several months in a row now. Several readers responded with insightful comments and possible answers like better configuration tools or today’s high quality of IIS.
A typical Linux desktop user is a guy in his twenties who's computer savvy but may very well not be an IT professional. Those are some of the conclusions you can draw from the just-released openSUSE survey results.
Sam Linux 2007 is another one of those distros that clearly has a lot going for it because numerous people have told me to look in it's direction. On further investigation it seems odd that I've not heard of this release before.
Interface, aesthetics and general feel
It’s about time for another FOSSwire game post and this time I’m going to be looking at Planet Penguin Racer.
PP Racer is actually a fork of a now-abandoned game, Tux Racer. You can still download the old Tux Racer, but the last news for it was back in 2001. For the newer levels and features, you’ll probably want to play PP Racer.
Having heard that Vista's CD/DVD burn utility by default uses a nonstandard format, possibly as a result of yet another one of Microsoft's lock-in schemes, I decided to check things out for myself. That would also give me a nice chance to see what Vista was all about.
The plan was simple:
1. Locate a Vista box,
2. Bring empty CD's plus some arbitrary files on a USB stick, and
A great solution for finding and installing software in openSUSE.
Benjamin Weber's solution provides a meta-repository of packages from repositories around the web, and a meta-package format makes it very easy to install new software, without having to find and register new repositories, or even start the dreaded YaST...
Yesterday, after arriving at the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Sevilla, I had three people in a row claiming one of the following: "You're a KDE guy, I'm GNOME guy, so we should be fighting (rather than drinking beer together)", "KDE? Sorry, I'm a GNOME user." or "... (silence)".
