What a sweet thing it is to sleep in your own bed. :)

Since I wasn’t able to be at school today for the festivities surrounding Software Freedom Day 2007, I thought I’d post an article for everyone who’s heard of Linux but never given it a try.

Software Freedom Day is a day devoted to spreading the good news of the free and open source software alternatives that exist to replace many of the more popular (and often much more expensive) applications we all use on a daily basis. The Linux kernel, combined with a wealth of awesome open source software packages, provides many computer users with a completely free alternative for their everyday computing. The article I linked to above is a step by step guide to installing one of the most popular Linux distributions, Ubuntu, on a computer that already runs Windows. When you’re finished, you have one system that is capable of booting Windows or Ubuntu… giving you the ability to try out Linux, without completely wiping Windows.

14 September 2007 - 8:39amA Second Attempt

, ,

Alright. I finally broke down and purchased web hosting services and got a real website with a legitimate domain name up and running. My last attempt included running a web server off of my laptop and using Dynamic DNS to provide a domain name for my dynamic IP.

So. I hope to update this thing at least a few times a week with new things happening with technology, Linux, amateur radio and who knows what else. Over the course of the next week or two, I’ll be setting up pages for each of my major interests and activities, finding a theme I can live with until I have time to make my own and hopefully starting to document some of the things I’ll be working on this semester.

Check back often and let me know how you like it!
