The Unity Desktop Shell for GNOME 3 on Ubuntu Linux has created a lot of controversy in the desktop Linux world. Some users love the new forward looking vision of Unity while others long for a more traditional desktop layout. One of the criticisms of Unity has been its lack of configuration settings. While many configuration settings have been added to Unity since the initial release, most of them remain hidden from regular users. That's where the Unity Tweak Tool comes in. It provides GUI access to many of Unity's hidden settings and collects them together under one convenient application.  Read more

Review: Linux Mint 14 MATE Edition

My last review of Linux Mint was for the Cinnamon edition of Linux Mint 13 "Maya". Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" was released back on Nov. 20, 2112, but with all of the hustle and bustle of the winter holidays, I didn't have time to install it and write up a review until now.

For this review I'm using both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions of Linux Mint 14 with the MATE desktop. The 64 bit version was installed inside a VirtualBox virtual machine on my desktop computer. The 32 bit version was installed on my MSI Wind U100 netbook. I started off by downloading the 64 bit Live DVD version of Linux Mint 14.1 over bittorrent. The torrent was running fast and my download completed in a little more than 30 minutes. This was most likely limited by my modest Internet connection. Read more

Keeping Track of My IP Address

My main computer at home acts as a file and media server for the whole house, so it's pretty much turned on all the time. There are times when I'm away from home that I want to remotely access or download a file from my home computer. My home internet service uses a dynamic IP address and every once in a while we get a short interruption to our power that forces the modem to reset. Of course, when that happens, the modem pulls a new IP address. I thought it would be handy if I could come up with a script to keep track of my current IP address for me. Read more

Moving to a new host

I'm in the midst of trying out a new host for I've moved to a new provider and moved up from shared hosting to a VPS package. I think I'm posting this from the new server and the rest of the world should see it as the new nameservers propagate to the domain name system across the globe. So, if you can see this post on my site, you're seeing it from the new host. Thanks for visiting
