Kick off post

I've decided to start creating a log of my troubles, tribulations and successes with Linux.

In this blog I'll try to keep a history of what I've done to make something work under Linux. I'm expecting that sometimes those exercises will be simple, some other times It may take some tweaking.

I saw this link to a job ad on an IRC channel, followed by the words, Please pass this around, if you know people who (a) are junior Unixheads and (b) like cake.

Angela Byron, Women In Open Source - Ontario Linux Fest

I finally finished downloading and editing the talk given by Angela Byron on Women In Open Source at Ontario Linux Fest. The video is rather large, 928MB, but a high quality MPEG2.

Download it at archive.org:

geubuntu

Currently downloading the net geubuntu distro from http://linuxtracker.org. This distro combines Gnome and Enlightenment, their mainsite can be found at http://geubuntu.intilinux.com > There are also screenshots on their site so you can see what this distro looks like, would personally recommend the moonlite edition it has a nice dark theme to it, there is also a sunshine edition of this distro as well. I would also recommend that you use a bittorrent client to download this file!

Cheers ;-)

Notification email details

I couldn't figure out how to configure the Notification module to send out better subject headings, so I changed the module code. The file to change is in modules/notify/notify.module .

Content notifications title

This blog entry is intended to trigger a notification.

If you are one of the 11 people who signed up for notifications independently you may notice some problems. Unfortunately I am a terrible programmer, so I think the code I hacked to make the notification e-mail subject threadable has lots of bugs.
