  • Fixing my Macbook pro’s Sound

    I’m running OpenSUSE 10.3 on my macbook pro that I picked up last semester. I had some problems getting my audio working for one reason or another, but finally got it. The easiest way I found was to grab the next release of alsa. By default opensuse 10.3 ships with version 1.0.14. Updating it to […]

  • A Great Loss

    I’ll leave the details to the link I’ll provide, but The President, Gordon B. Hinckley of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints passed away this evening at the age of 97.  He was a remarkable person.  Here is the link.

  • Linux Journal 2008 Readers’ Choice Survey

    It’s that time of the year when you need to get over to Linux Journal’s 2008 Readers’ Choice survey.  So if your favorite distro isn’t opensuse, well just leave that question blank. 😛

  • OpenSuSE 11 Alpha 1 Screen Shots

    Well another alpha release is out and I’m behind on getting my screen shots out.  This time I’m ahead of last time.  There have already been a few articles out there already about this release with plenty of screen shots and will include links to them.  This way you get twice as much.  For those […]

  • Indonesia and Small world

    I can honestly say that I would have never guessed that a website in Indonesia would have ever linked to one of my posts.  I have google analytics running on my website and noticed a hugh spike in hits for Indonesia (watch out german, your about to bumped to third if the hits keep coming).  […]

  • OpenSuSE 11 Alpha 0 Screenshots

    Ok.  Sorry it took so long to get these out.  Hopefully it won’t take this long for alpha 1.  I really only have screenshots for the install of the gnome cd since for one reason or another the display stuff wasn’t working very well with vmware.  So, without too much talking here are the screenshots. […]

  • Bandwidth Upgrade

    The other day I had my bandwidth upgraded.  I started out with 15/15 mbit speeds and well they handled everything I needed it to.  But the nerd/geek in me didn’t feel this way.  My awesome and amazing ISP Xmission started offering highly speeds as if 15/15 mb wasn’t enough.  As is I’m paying $50 a […]
