Quit quitting on quitting google

Yes, that’s right.  Quit trying to quit Google.

I’ve been reading a few articles lately that are suggesting that you should quit Google, some that don’t give a good reason and others that give no reason at all.

Before I continue on there are a few things we must clear the air with.  I’m not trying to convince you to stay with Google.  If you want to leave, so be it!  I’m not against other options but some of these options just aren’t that great and you are probably worse off using them.  If you are wanting to quit Google because they are becoming “too large”, please put your tin foil hat on now and walk away.  You use the Internet for fsck sakes, it’s like spreading your seed where ever you go.

Search

I’ve seen lots of recommendations to Bing and Yahoo.  I haven’t used those sites for years, there’s a reason for that.  Google rocks their tubsocks off.

Happy New Year!

Why So Serious!?

Here’s to putting up more of my work so I can keep track of it!

Things to look forward to:

  • Bacula SBo
  • Citrix XenServer Instructions and xe-guest-utilities SBo
  • Windows scripts for AD, some how to’s and just plain old documentation of what i’ve done at work and apps I use.
  • Site theme change… completely custom!

Extra dep’s to go along with Farsight2

***UPDATE*** 1/15/2010
It’s been a while since I’ve tested the whole V&V with pidgin but I remember that installing these packages did not fix my problem.  Still had issues with V&V working on one end and not the other, the suddenly stopping.  It has a was to go.  Maybe these have become more part of farsight2 now though who knows.

A few of us in the ##slackware channel have been working on getting voice and video to work with the latest pidgin release.  However, so far most of our efforts have been in vain.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.  I can never send the request and get it to work however others can send to me just fine.  I’ve tried all sorts of things on my end, including opening up the whole “world” to the inside of my network… Still nada.

Saw that farsight2 required gupnp-igd.  Here are all the packages I’ve build to SBo standards.
They must be built in this order.

This is how I spent my Saturday

So me and Jon worked yesterday from 10am to like 1:30am I think.  We had like a two hour dinner though, we needed a break and some beer.  Here’s some before and after pictures of what we did.

Welcome.  There’s not much posted yet, but everything is still in a working progress.  Just figured I’d make my second “first post”.

Yey!
