I am a professional programmer and web application tester. I'm sort of a jack of all trades because I work with almost every technology under the sun as a hobby, so most of the questions that appear on StackExchange sites are intensely interesting to me, and many of the answers that I come up with will prove useful to me in my pursuits in the future.

I have professional and serious hobby experience with system administration (client and server), desktop applications and web programming (mostly in higher level languages), audio processing and encoding, functional validation, and application security testing. My degree is in Computer Science but my interests are much broader than most of my peers.

Chances are, if you've got a question related to technology, I'm right there with you -- either I have the same question or have had it at some point in the past. I'll try my best to impart my own personal experience in the hopes that it is useful, but be wary that I sometimes jump the gun and post experiences that may not represent actual fact. I encourage everyone to verify the information they read on the internet before making important decisions based upon it, and my answers are no exception.

comment IronHide / BumbleBee with a VirtualBox VM. Will it pass through video acceleration to the physical card?
Addition: we can't do bumblebee (render on nvidia card) in virtual machines right now, since VMware and VirtualBox both require their binaries to be setuid to work.

comment What IRC servers are available for Ubuntu
"the best" is a subjective question, and such, cannot be answered directly -- so that makes it off topic. Suggest re-wording to emphasize which IRC servers are available, rather than discussing which one is best.

comment Problems with libconfig PKG_CONFIG_PATH enviroment variable
Warnings are non-fatal, which means that the application can definitely still compile, and probably still run correctly, with the warning. Errors are fatal. Do you get compile errors?

Err, gcc $(pkg-config --cflags --libs libconfig) configTest.c -o configTest

I would suggest revising your compile command as follows: gcc $(pkg-config --cflags --libs libconfig configTest.c -o configTest`

Please edit your original question indicating the exact input you get, and the output. Also be aware that the second call to pkg-config in your command line needs to be in backticks (`) or in a $() statement.

comment Problems with libconfig PKG_CONFIG_PATH enviroment variable
It is a malformed idea to think that you have to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to fix this problem. Fendrix, you do not have to do that. The error message is a bit misleading. You should read my answer.
