Sheesh dude, that's a buttload O storage. How much of it's actually already filled? Speakin of porn empires, a software engineer buddy of mine was in between gigs a few yrs back, and bored, so he wrote a spider program and used it to rip everything from a porn site as fast as his connection could stream it all back to his server. He'd set up one of their 2-3 day $1.99 trial subscription de

I haven't been able to reconcile VM ware in my mind yet, kinda like with women, so ... My best understanding always comes from mentally being able to grok a thing though this has been elusive with VM ware. If it's caching everything into RAM isn't that also depleting the RAM as a resource in a real time sense or is that inconsequential in the grand scheme of things? Any idea what would lea

I was seeing some really disheartening signs with 11.04 64 bit and loaded up the 32 bit and watched 'em melt away. I found the 64 bit was hittin 2 of my 8 CPU cores really hard and not handin off core to core which eventually would lead to a CPU failure, or at least give better odds on that happenin. With the older OS I had been runnin most of the time all 8 cores would hover around 15-25% and

The definition of "broke" in this instance is subjective quasi. If somethin isn't workin the way you know it can or want it to, isn't it broke even if it is otherwise functional? There's a total shift in how many Linux users see things compared to how many Windows/Mac users look at things. Windows/Mac folks seem to look at functional programs that consume huge amounts of system

I guess if I didn like to fiddle and tweak everything the way I do it would be a lot easier. But, having gotten so used to Ubuntus total customization like I have, I always like to add in lotsa personal fave touches here and there, which can lead to some serious pitfalls along the way. One of my missteps was in trying to remove the user/shutdown icon off the taskbar which is now lumped togethe

The Wisdom of an Old Marine The Commandant of the Marine Corps was General Al Gray, a crusty old 'Field Marine.' He loved his Marines and often slipped into the mess hall wearing a faded old field jacket without any rank or insignia on it. He would go through the chow line just like a private. In this way, he was assured of being given the same rations that the lowest enlisted man received. W

This time of year the steady droning of the A/C unit definitely takes a toll on my listening pleasure. It's 10:30pm and still a solid 86 degrees here now so "Rolling in the Deep" is gettin some serious competition from the localized "climate control" unit. Yeah GAK, some of those lists are fun to wind your way through though with my penchant for some of the more eclectic s

Why I'm divorced . . .. Last week 02/15 was my birthday and I didn't feel very well waking up on that morning.. I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say, 'Happy Birthday!', and possibly have a small present for me. As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone ' Happy Birthday.' I thought.... Well,

Hey 'berto .... gun lust, in Texas As is pretty typical, reality is far from what's portrayed in the press. Don't get me wrong, as a culture, yeah there's a lot of gun owners here, but the idea there's also a high concentration of assault rifles is far from true. Thankfully, I've never had a gun pulled on me, nor have I ever had to pull mine on anyone either and hope that same luck conti
