I'm a web developer and I love to work with open source technology stacks. So far I have been involved in projects that let me gain experience with the following:

  • Web layout: GIMP and Photoshop;
  • Front end: Javascript with Prototype, jQuery, Backbone and RequireJS, XHTML with plain CSS and LESS, Bootstrap;
  • Back end: PHP and perl with mostly MVC-type paradigm, Smarty and Template Toolkit templating engines;
  • Databases: PostgreSQL with stored procedures and triggers in PL/pgSQL;
  • Unit testing: Test::Class for perl and Jasmine, JsTestDriver for JavaScript, pgTAP for PostgreSQL.

I am very excited about Python, Ruby and also willing to give Node.js a try in the near future. I am eagerly waiting for a project that will allow me to dive into any of those technologies to gain first-hand experience.

@soulsource Can you post that in an answer? The nomodeset actually did the trick.

Try installing the ia32-libs package and then running apt-get with the -f switch.

comment How to get Nexus Mod Manager working on Wine?
Yes, it is rated garbage, but it has gotten a lot better with a couple of latest releases. It actually starts and lets you choose game folders, but it still doesn't run. It looks like the prefix requires just a little bit more tweaking to achieve the bronze rating.

comment How do I permanently change owner and group of a system device?
This solution has occurred to me, but what confused me initially was the device's permissions. They are set to brw-rw---, doesn't that mean that only root can boot from this device?

@psusi, no, you need to create a vmdk in both cases, check out the docs I have linked to.

comment What's the difference between “purge” and “remove --purge”?
If I might add, the --purge switch comes in handy when you use the autoremove command. There is no other way that I know to make apt-get delete configuration files of packages that are being automatically removed.
