Organizing Files

Filed under
Linux

The problem: the filesystem on my Unix workstation was a mess. I couldn't find anything without grepping all over creation. About half the time, I'd actually find something useful. Usually I'd get no hits at all, or I'd match something like a compiled binary and end up hosing my display beyond belief.

I thought now was a good time to talk about the differences I perceive in the two companies, having worked at the one and talked extensively with the other. In no particular order....

It's that time of year when those close to us are (hopefully) thinking hard about what to get us for Christmas. Unless you want a pack of DVD-Rs and a mousepad in your stocking, you'd better act quick. Here are our picks for the festive season.

I had seen this website before about Ubuntu on an Inspiron 9300 and tried the suggestions for getting suspend to work...to no avail. Recently, though, I tried it again and it worked.
