Fedora 17 with Gnome 3.4 is incredibly stable in comparison with Fedora 16 with Gnome 3.2. I have to admit I had a really hard time finding any bugs in the system, which is a lot more than I could say for Fedora 16. The bugs I did find weren't even really bugs but just minor annoyances.
The installation was quick, and it only took me a maximum of 15 minutes to get the system installed and booted up. The boot time is quick as well, although I don't know the exact number of seconds. It certainly does boot faster than Sabayon or Ubuntu on my laptop, however.
A while back my blog got hacked. I fixed it, but not before I got blacklisted. Because I got blacklisted I lost my domain name.
Around the same time I was losing my hosting. I had backups of my posts but they wouldn't import in to Blogger, even with the use of a converter.

I read this article today by someone called Hoo-Ann and I was very disappointed by how short the article was. I have been using Ubuntu off and on since it was Breezy Badger and I can come up with a lot more to say about the advantages and disadvantages of using Ubuntu. So, as someone that believes if someone else can't do it "right" then you should it yourself, I'm going to list the (much longer) advantages and disadvantages I've personally found with using Ubuntu.
9:59 AMMost people already know about the Incognito mode in Google's Chrome/Chromium browser. It allows you to browse the internet without leaving behind any footprints - no temporary internet files, no history, no cookies, etc. However did you know you can use this handy tool from the command line without ever having to open up Google Chrome/Chromium?
2:31 PMHi & welcome to the new website! Unfortunately my hosting bill came due at a time I was not prepared to pay it, so I had to let my hosting account go. I will probably be sticking with Blogger from here on out because I really do not like having to lose anything and with the economy the way it is now finances are uncertain. I have migrated some of the posts from the old website here, and I will be adding more content soon. So sit back & relax! Enjoy the new website. :)
Linux a few months ago but coming back it seems like it's been a year since I left. One of the many changes that has taken place on the Linux playing field is Google no longer supports Picasa for Linux. I kind of feel like Google is shooting themselves in the foot - after all they use Linux for practically everything, including their Android operating system. Why wouldn't they support the operating system they themselves show a preference for? But whatever. The fact is you can still run Picasa on Linux. It just takes A LOT more steps to do so.
