openSUSE was released on July 15th. I downloaded the 32-bit DVD today, because I wanted to try the new LXDE Desktop that is included with the disk (thanks to Andreas for making that effort!). It is currently being test driven on VirtualBox on openSUSE 11.2, and MAN is it ever FAST! It’s probably the 1.5GB RAM upgrade Continue reading

I have always found GNU
find to be a little bit tricky to use. It is indeed quite a powerful program. It allows you to search anywhere, for anything! With the output, you can use the -exec option to run a command on each and every file find finds.
It’s week 8 now at Uni, out of 13 weeks in all. The pressure will come in around two weeks, I think. CCNA case study, CCNA practicals, Computer Forenics Project report (80% of my mark), 20% for Computer Forensic presentation, around 30-40% for surviving group attacks from Advanced Network Management (aka GNU Linux server management). All in all, a laid-back semester.
Heading out to Cairns on Saturday. Stoked! Going scuba diving.
I can feel Brizzy getting colder now, as April begins to close. May will be stressful, with assignments and group work. Overall, this semester has been among my easiest. Reminds me of my final year as undergrad in Canada. I took French, Spanish, and Philosophy – what a breeze! Cairns coming up. Promise I’ll post up underwater pics 😉
There is a great thread about endianess, Unicode, BOM (byte order marks), and other interesting topics.
Today, the jury in the District Court of Utah trial between SCO Group and Novell issued a verdict.
Novell is very pleased with the jury’s decision confirming Novell’s ownership of the Unix copyrights, which SCO had asserted to own in its attack on Linux. Novell remains committed to promoting Linux, including by defending Linux on the intellectual property front.
This decision is good news for Novell, for Linux, and for the open source community.
I got hired at my old job. I’m very happy for that. They’re happy I came back! Saves them money and time on training, and the off-chance of hiring a ‘lemon’ that quits after 4 weeks. I’ve entered into a Digital Forensics project. I need to develop a tool that will automate some of the labourious tasks involved in digital forensic evidence acquisition. I’ll probably need to brush up on GNU Bash scripting, and PHP.
It’s been very warm here, but not too hot, which I like. Yesterday was a bitch, though, felt like 30°C. Fortunately, today was overcast, and so helped to alleviate some of the scorching.
