1. Debian Etch released, layla upgraded

    Etch has finally been released. I have upgraded layla (the server running this blog) from Sarge to Etch, and the upgrade process was pretty smooth. Only a few things needed manual attention.

    Quite surprisingly, there weren't any problems upgrading the kernel to 2.6.18, even though this required ...

  6. Apple shy of Linux?

    You've all seen the ads.

    "Hi, I'm a Mac." "And I'm a PC."

    Terminology aside, (it's "Windows PC" -- there are lots of PC OSes) Apple is ignoring ...

  7. Tursiops: Universal trainer for Linux

    One of the things I do miss about Windows is the abundance of universal trainers for it. If you don't know what a trainer is, it's a program that writes over the memory of another process, typically a game, to confuse the program into doing something it wouldn ...
