Fun with File Permissions – Part 1

First, a little side story. I like messing around with my Linux computer. I have fun just seeing what the operating system can do. I like to talk about what I find, probably because learning new things excites me. I get giddy when I find out something new about something that’s familiar. Unfortunately, in my … [Read more…]

iFanatical Idiocy

A bit of a rant here. I ran across this graphic on CounterNotions (I only bother to link because this guy has Apple so far up his rectum he’d probably sue me for copyright violation if I didn’t link to him). This graphic is a perfect example of the thought process of many iFanatics I’ve run … [Read more…]

Android: Intent on Winning

Current Desktop

I just thought that I’d take this opportunity (since I’m kinda bored and couldn’t think of anything to write about) to post a screen capture of my current desktop. I don’t know if it’s the people that I hang around with, or if it’s actually more global, but it seems like there’s been kind of … [Read more…]

Open Source Linux has Nothing to Fear from Android

Android has been exploding in popularity since it’s release to the public in 2008. Recently, it’s success has bred a new collection of rumors and FUD. HP’s new CEO Meg Whitman claimed that Google’s acquisition of Motorola would lead to Android being becoming closed source. It seems ridiculous, and is probably just an effort to bring herself more … [Read more…]
