In the past few month I’ve been bothered by the fact that several folks have been asking for help with file sharing in the #ubuntu-nl channel on the freenode IRC network. I think it’s wrong.
New Hampshire authorities are investigating the death of Boston lead singer Bradley Delp, who was found dead in his home at the age of 55.

After the recent switch to the Ubuntu code base, Freespire announced that it has restarted its development process with the first alpha release of Freespire 2.0, Alpha1U (1.2.42). The new revision sports a 2.6.20 kernel and the KDE 3.5.6 desktop environment, according to the project team.
To write a message to users that have login, you can using the command write. But before that, you need to check who is login, and which terminal he is login to, use command who.
When I’m coding I MUST listen to music. It helps me tune out and concentrate. Tonight I was messing around on Last.fm and noticed they had a client download and was amazed to see they had a Linux version!
We just passed a quiet milestone at the beginning of the month. And while the milestone does not seem to effect Linux, it could be mark the beginning of the worst assault on desktop Linux to date. As of March 1, it seems, all televisions sold in the US are to be HDTV ready.

If you are a regular to tuxmachines, you have probably noticed the unusual amount of downtime the past 18 hours.
