I'm a geek who loves Linux. I do my best to help other Linux users, but oftentimes, I'm the one who needs help.

My personal favorite software:

  • Chromium
  • VLC
  • TrueCrypt
  • 7-Zip (or p7zip)

I've recently switched from Ubuntu to Arch Linux, and I'm absolutely loving it. I really appreciate the control it offers over your system - instead of trying to stop a user from installing software just because it doesn't have the "correct" license, it lets you decide what software you do or don't want on your system. (It's yours, after all.)

revised Why can't Ubuntu access my Raspberry Pi across LAN?
HTTP(S) connections are also not available locally, BUT I noticed that Ubuntu can connect to my external IP.

There's really nothing interesting, just a "connection refused" message: pastebin.com/Nc1W8Mja

comment ubuntu 12.10 not updating
Hey... another good DNS provider is Google's DNS - they don't screw up nxdomain like OpenDNS does. Primary server is 8.8.8.8 secondary 8.8.4.4.

@ændrük It would still be nice to know how to forcibly install extensions in Chrome, let's go ahead and leave this open.

Please don't say "newest", as this can change over time. The newest LTS release is 12.04 Precise Pangolin(which I use.) The latest Public release is 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. The latest latest release (as of time of writing) is the 13.04 Raring Ringtal beta. So please edit the proper version into your question. (there is an edit link right above this comment, just to the right of "share".)

@mikewhatever Actually, they're Linux-based, once you figure out how to access the Shell, you have access to fdisk, dd, and the whole crew! (yes, even sudo. :)

comment Another question about Netflix on Ubuntu
Ehh, I've tried that, it didn't work very well. Thanks for mentioning that, though. P.S., spoofing DRM isn't illegal if you don't get caught! ;) (JK)

comment Will `sudo reboot` on KVM host gracefully poweroff guest VMs?
Something to think about: a shutdown script that would send some sort of "shutdown all VMs" signal to KVM. The idea needs some fleshing out, but if KVM supports command-line control, it wouldn't be too hard to create a simple shutdown script to do that.
