That’s not one of the promised posts but anyway I’d like to share a few thought after reading a series of articules about the internet and discovering what some people may think about the network. I am aware that the articles I’ve read are biased sample but nonetheless I belive that they still worth to read to find out what people may think about the internet.
I am sorry for lack of the exact quotes or references but I was unable to find them. They were spread over several weeks and I found only paid archives so I am not able to pinpoint exact newspapers.
Since some time I try to follow gnome 3.0 development and gnome-shell in particular. However I started to be growingly sceptical about 3.0 release (well – possibly again) and fear repeat of KDE 4.0. I hope I am wrong and I have hevily biased view.
I’m finishing migration of blog to the WordPress from Jogger.pl. Jogger was a good platform but I used a few benefits and it was hard to handle interface with two blogs. WordPress at this moment have larger number of advantages and have numerous plugins. Additionally it is open source.
Hopefully everything will work out-of-the-box, although I have my doubts about the rss/atom – I hope they will work/be updated. I also expects that DNS change have fully propagate by now.
I hope that my blog will be updated more often however I cannot promise anything. So far I have 2 drafts of posts.
I had from some time SixXS account and I was happy user. Until I tried to change e-mail
Since the down of time mankind seek the solution to the circular dependencies in C++. Well – may be ot exactly since the “down of time” and definitly not the whole of the mankind – but it have been “always” a problem.
Traditionally if one want to use a hard drive (s)he has to partition it. “Since the dawn of time” the problem was – how. Partition cannot be easily moved around (moving 40 GiB chunk of data takes a long time), and it cannot be done while FS is mounted. What is worst repartitioning the disk while any of the partition is mounted prevents Linux from rereading the partition table – which basicly means that I have to do it from Live CD. While it is inconvenient for desktop user it is impossible for servers.
However I thought I do not need it. Well – what are my needs? 10 GiB for /usr for sure is enough, /var etc. on separate partitions with appropriate size. Rest for /home. As many times before live proved me wrong. Recently I started running of the space on /usr – and have plenty of space on /home – which was not only not-optimal but started stopping my system from working.
Recently I started using Paludis as my packed manager on my ‘desktop’ Gentoo installation.
