Clonezilla

Friday, September 28th, 2007

For quite a while I’ve used ghost4linux (g4l) for my disc cloning needs. What I REALLY like are the ability to do a network copy of the image to an ftp server and the built in dd_rescue to rescue data from a failing hard drive. Unfrotunately g4l does a bit by bit copy of a [...]

Custom livecd’s, virtualbox, seamlessrdp and sata dvd burners…

Monday, September 24th, 2007

I thought this writeup was interesting on the idea of using a web interface to customize a livecd. I’ve built a couple livecd’s (that I still use) for tech support, but I’m always thinking of one more tool that I’d like to have. After looking through their wizard it seems a bit limited in the [...]

Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon coming

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

The release date for the 7.10 Ubuntu release is coming soon. I’ve installed a beta into a virtual machine to see what’s what and so far haven’t had much time to play around. I seem to recall the localization question being new in the installer, but then it’s been a while since I used the [...]

lulu.com

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I’ve mentioned lulu.com before (I have several products up there – a couple cds – music downloads – pictures – calendars – etc.) They’ve recently had a nice revision that ups the possibilities nicely. If you have anything you want to get published and don’t want to go in and buy a large amount of [...]

Windows web editor

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I’ve been looking for a simple windows based web editor to recommend for someone. I use quanta plus on linux and would really have a hard time LEAVING it, but… there’s of course dreamweaver and frontpage… but I’ve also found kompozer which is based on nvu – although I still REALLY wish quanta plus were [...]

Torbutton – firefox anonymity browser extension

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I don’t know if anonymity is exactly acheived, but…. anyway not too long ago I explored/setup tor on my system to play around with, no real reason I suppose, but doing what I do it pays to be aware of many different kinds of software. Tor proxies web requests from your machine through a tunnel [...]

Miro – rss/videocast aggregator/player

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I’ve just been using miro the last few days and I ought to mention it here. It’s a multiplatform program (windows/ mac/ linux) that let’s you subscribe to video feeds (much like a podcast catcher does for audio.) It also plays video within the player (you can organize your local video clips through it as [...]

Web translation

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I found this link of plugins for wordpress to aid in multilingual site building. I’ve been experimenting with English/Spanish designs of one site I maintain using plain html (index.html.en index.html.es and the server gives the correct page depending on the browser localization. It seems as though there was an .htaccess change that I had to [...]

Stopping email hoaxes and chain emails…

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

How many times have I seen the same chain email about who knows what… it always ends in something along the lines of “I don’t know if this is true, but I figure I don’t have anything to lose, so pass it along and let’s see what happens.” Computers were supposed to improve productivity, sometimes [...]
