Debian, Leopard and AFP

Debian 5.0.0 was released this past weekend and I thought, what better time to sit down for a few minutes and re-install my basement Debian server. As usual, everything went swimmingly and I was mostly done the install rather quickly (as opposed to the WinXP install I’m doing now, but that’s another story). I did […]

ReadyNAS NV+, Seagate Firmware Update Take 1

If you have ever heard of Seagate (the hard drive manufacturer), then you surely know that last month they had a flurry of hard drive failures in their popular 7200.11 line of hard drives.

Suffice to say I was none too impress with Apple. Turns out, not their fault. I stumbled upon this thread which indicates tha Logitech Control Center […]


Blogging seems to have fallen down on the list of things I need to do, so as a result it has been a while since I’ve posted anything. One of the things I’ve been working on instead of keeping the interweb buzzing with my keen insight and immaculate prose is working on a new website. […]

Vista a Spectacular Failure?

I haven’t even run Vista. Even though I’m a developer and make my living off Windows application development, I am frankly just not an OS tire kicker. I didn’t buy a Mac until Tiger came out, I still run the stable (_sometimes_ the testing) release of Debian and I haven’t tried Ubuntu as a possible […]

Shuffle Kafuffle
