I’ve had this problem with Hamachi for a while: because client management is pretty lacking (in part due to the new management’s desire to up-sell you to paid tiers), people fill their networks with people that have multiple Hamachi installations on different partitions, or separate laptops, etc.
When Hamachi went to version 2 with the [...]
On Linux, all manner of automation is available. I run my own minecraft server process on my virtual private server, and have been occasionally faced with random crashes. (Truth be told, the machine needs just a tad more RAM, so perhaps the process is killed by the OS for this reason.)
To keep my Minecraft [...]
There are a good number of ways to mess up complex systems. Hopefully you, like me, screw up development systems, and not production ones, guarding and carrying with you the knowledge you gain along the way. You’re not a complete idiot, you just make mistakes sometimes.
Here are 3 things you’ll punch your computer over, [...]
There is no doubt in my mind that nearly every advancement in the last 4 years in web browser UI and interaction model has been spurred by Google Chrome.
Chrome—the Google-branded version of the open source project Chromium—has shaken things up just when browsers were getting boring again. From UI changes (such [...]
Can someone tell me why we feel the need to harass Microsoft for bundling IE on their own flipping OS?
Without IE, I wouldnt’ be able to get online very easily, to go download Chrome or FF or Opera or whatever.

So, this isn’t tough stuff, but any gui-loving user will find themselves in shambles when put in front of a l?[ui]n[iu]x (pardon the regex) terminal. That is to say that it’s OKAY if you’re good “at computers”, yet you can’t fumble your way around a unix-style terminal.
I recently set up my own headless (no [...]
Amateur at everything, coder, UI designer, musician, and writer. I break things apart and re-program them from scratch to learn exactly which problems people have solved in the past. I write for NaNoWriMo, and I'm nearing the self publication of a short story called Highway.
Python is my passion. Alastair Reynolds writes great science fiction, but has a really ugly website. My Mac is my Linux without all the driver failures. I hate working directly for salesmen. Huge scented candles are surprisingly nice when you work from home all day. I play AP Mid lane for my League of Legends team, but love a good run at Top.
