I don’t write about emusic enough. I signed up a few months ago on a 50 songs a month package, and have downloaded countless really good songs that I would never have bought otherwise. This month I’ve concentrated on new releases, and have downloaded the new albums from Super Furry Animals, The Thermals, and Camera […]
I’ve been doing a bit of work on Mandriva recently, and I always forget that there are two places you need to change the host name before it “takes”. in /etc/sysconfig/network add the following line: HOSTNAME=hostname Where hostname is whatever you want the computer to be called. Then in /etc/hosts just add the hostname after […]
This should work on any recent version of Mandriva, but specifically on 2009 (current) and 2009.1 (cooker). So far so good, but as always, your mileage may vary. It’s the first one I’ve built on a VM (my physical build machine died), but it installed fine on my EeePC, so hopefully all will be well.

According to last.fm, the list goes like so: Frank Turner – Love Ire & Song + The First Three Years And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – The Century of Self The Hold Steady – Separation Sunday The Decemberists – The Hazards of Love The Hold Steady – Stay […]
As of 4pm tomorrow I’m on holiday for 10 days. It’s the first break of any length I’ve had for a few weeks, and I am very much looking forward to it. Last time I was off I ended up spending most of the week working on various projects, but I do intend to make […]
This week I’ve been installing various things on the collection of SD cards and USB sticks I have lying around. Fedora 11 is looking very good, and runs like a dream on my EeePC. TinyCore looks interesting, and boots in about 10 seconds, but I don’t think it’s what I’m looking for other than as […]
