Well, if you have your computer I could give you a few things to try. After all, sometimes, watching a tv series could get boring. Or it could be that you’ve seen your videos over and over and over again. You need to do something new. In that case, you might want to try doing these things that I do. It might not be the most adventurous thing at first but who knows what you might be learning along the way
Search for a new application to try.
For me, this never gets old. I love …read more
Those with bluetooth or wifi on their machines will most likely enjoy using Remuco, an application to let you use your mobile phone as a remote control. Right now, Remuco can be used with the following media players:
ou may use any of the above mentioned applications on your Linux box but features with regards to control, information displayed, and browsing depend on which one of them you use. If you’re using Banshee, there are no browsing features available. But you could control the volume, skip to the next track (or go to the previous one), toggle …read more
We must learn to research further when someone writes something like 3 reasons why we should not use Linux. Many people already responded to the post and have told the blogger the things that debunk his/her arguments. The blogger was too general about his/her comments about Linux.
No blogger is perfect. But really, for those who are looking for a Linux distro or an application to use, other people’s opinions need not to be the final and deciding factor. I personally think that we should try out these distros and applications despite opposition from whoever. …read more
I recently blogged about two guides on installing Chromium for Ubuntu and I included links to articles that talked about the proper way of installing it as well as enabling the support for Flash. (Because watching videos online and playing those Flash-based games on Facebook and everywhere else could get so addicting.) This recent experience with Chromium seems so much better compared to my first attempt at installing it. (Well, they did say that it’s for development purposes, and I took that chance. Not inherently a bad thing.)
So now I have no envy towards people using …read more
I commonly write about Ubuntu-based distros for the netbook but it looks like the Fedora team’s doing something about the growing netbook community as well. As I have said before, Moblin looks like an awesome project that showcases a user interface that lets netbook users maximize its features and screen space. Check out which hardware Fedora Moblin will support. This project could lead to Fedora on many different devices, targetting netbooks and mobile internet devices and the like. Popular netbooks like Acer’s Aspire One, Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 and Asus’ EEE PC are currently the devices involved …read more
The first time I installed Chromium, it was terribly slow. Ugh. I couldn’t wait for it to load a website. It was just too painfully slow to wait for it. Just now I read a write-up about it having Flash support in Ubuntu. Hrmm. If people are talking about that now, then it must be better, right?
So… apparently there’s a better way to install Chromium on Ubuntu, the right way. Don’t worry. Even if there are command line instructions, they are straightforward. You basically need to add the Chromium PPA …read more
Because your netbook doesn’t need to feel sucky! And it could work better for you too!
Sounds like an infomercial, doesn’t it? ; ) But thinking about what defaults you might possibly have, there’s gotta be something better. And I might be biased but there really are other things better on netbooks compared to Windows. Whether you believe it or not, that’s what I personally think. Windows looks too cluttered for me even though it’s not as sluggish as I thought it would be.
Anyway, no need to freak out that your netbook isn’t quite as fantastic as you thought it should …read more
When migrating to Linux, some users find it easier if the desktop environment looked close enough to Windows. Why? Because the familiarity gives them enough comfort to click around and do something. It also gives them the feeling that it’s not going to be too different, at least when it comes to them using their computers. My mom and sister will kill me if I make them use Openbox or Ratpoison as their window managers, same thing goes if I installed Enlightenment or Windowmaker. They will end up feeling too weirded out by the …read more
I’ve been trying to regularly post on this blog and so far, there’s one idea I’ve been keeping up with more or less and that’s Funny Friday. The alliteration is enough to keep me interested in looking for funny stuff, whether it’s about Linux items or quotes, and make sure I post them on a Friday. Those funny stuff I’ve looked for have helped me think of potential gifts for friends and co-workers who use Linux are very proud of it. Also, some of the humorous stuff I find get me more interested in other …read more
I was looking for something funny to share with you when I chanced upon a comment on a blog that says that Humorix has stories which are funny. I couldn’t resist so I checked it out. The commenter was right! It is funny. It’s like Slashdot but with lots of fake stories and other such funny stuff.
I was laughing at the thought of a disgruntled Satan/Lucifer complaining that he shouldn’t be compared to Bill Gates. After all, he is the Prince of Darkness and whatever evil he can do is infinitely greater than the one …read more
