Filed under
Linux

Over the years, I've had a number of people asking me what I believe the problem was with further migration over to Linux by the public at large.

Take note: Xournal

Filed under
HowTos

For intensive word-only writing, most of us can type on a keyboard far faster than we can scrawl with a pen, but the speed advantage is reversed for anything that requires diagramming or mathematical formulas. The open source application Xournal, which is designed to provide keyboard-less text entry and drawing features, is one solution.

Creating a replica of a router in case of catastrophic failure is simply a matter of physically plugging in a cold standby and copying the configuration from some backup medium onto the new device.
