    Nested RAID contraption idea for home Linux file server

    I've recently been making upgrades to an old PC, so I could have my own little linux file server at home. My thought was to use a few big disks in a software raid5. Nothing too fancy, and I'll probably just use Ubuntu for simplicity. While looking at the pile of disks of data I intend to...

    Is there such as thing as...?

    This might sound like an odd thing, but I'm feeling inventive, and I wondered if maybe one existed already. Basically I want a flashlight mount that could hook into the threaded tripod spot on the bottom of my camera. It doesn't have to be especially bright, just bright enough that I could see...

    Remote a single app

    Suppose I have system A and system B, both running Windows XP Pro. Is there a way I can run an app such that I use the processor and RAM of system A, but see and control it on system B? I don't want the full desktop, just a single lonely app. If so, how about with taking advantage of system B's...

    Reverse Xming?

    I've been contemplating a future new system, and I want to run Linux because I like it best. For ease I'll probably stick with Ubuntu. In the interest of getting rid of an old Windows XP system, I figured I'd put XP in a virtual machine so I can still get to my old games that Wine won't run. 64...

    Conditional visibility with just css

    This isn't up on any server at the moment, so sadly I don't have anything to show anyone right now. Anyhow, just for fun for some friends and some kids, I've been tinkering with a single page layout involving a segmented map. Basically it uses bookmarks (<a href="#example">) in the page to...

    "fake" a higher resoution?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite R10 tablet PC, and It's been happily running Ubuntu for several versions. :) My only real complaint is that the screen resolution cannot exceed 1024x786. It is the bare minimum resolution I could possible be content with on an Ubuntu system. The main app I like to use...

    Lens in a river

    While wandering through the wilderness, I fell in a river. My camera, fell in with me. The camera survived unharmed. Unfortunately the attached lens took in water, and now that it's dry, it is spotty on the inside. I'd rather not have to replace the lens, but after some inspection, I've decided...

    Lens Doubler?

    I recently acquired a new camera. Attached to it I have a 300mm auto focusing lens. I really enjoy it and have been having lots of fun filling up memory cards. Unfortunately, I can never let myself just enjoy something, I always want more. Given my love of autofocus and a limited budget that...

    Hoax - Sonic in SSBB

    http://abxy.org/a/sakurai:_sonic_will_be_in_brawl_if_sega_approves/ Saw the headline on Digg, was confused for a moment, got my hopes up momentarily, then they squashed them. OK, apparently someone thought they were being funny by making up a tall tail of Sonic the Hedgehog possible being...

    Mapping Hyrule for fun (Zelda)

    Just for fun, I thought I would attempt to align some maps from different versions of Zelda. While in truth meaningful alignments between the games maps are probably coincidental, they oddly enough made sense in a lot of places. Making them line up required that Hyrule pretty much rotate...

    Wii Virtual Console

    Has anyone picked up any rumors on whether any of the old GB, GBC, or GBA games will be making it onto the Wii virtual console? I'm not a fan of portable tiny screen gaming, but can think of a few I would like to have via Wii. I'd like to fill in some nice little collections in my list of Wii...

    Debug view

    I'm in the early stages of designing a site, and have been attempting to get some scripts and styles balanced between different browsers. The trouble I have is in IE6. All the copies of IE6 within walking distance at the moment are stand-alone versions, and they don't behave normally, so I can't...

    Hypothetical RAID Questions.

    These questions may seem odd, but there is reasoning to the madness. I would like to know a little more regarding the software RAID functionality that is commonly available with Linux. Specifically I'd like to know this: 1. In a mirrored raid configuration in which the two drives are...

    32-64 bit batch file

    I need just a little help, with something that seems like it should be easy. I am creating a simple Windows command line batch file as part of an automated software installation, but I want the script to avoid installing if the script is run on one of the 64 bit versions of windows...

    "Trusted Sites" detection

    Here is the situation; I am looking for a way to detect whether a server is in Internet Explorer's trusted sites list. The university I work at recently deployed a n new CMS, and the new system gives many many messages when students attempt to download files an view various content linked...

    GTA4 (What would you like to see in it, or change about it?)

    Well more than a year away, they are supposedly working on a new Grand Theft Auto game. It will probably have a new graphics, physics, the works. They are supposed to be making it for Xbox360 and the PS3. I have not heard anything confirming it will be released on the PC, but it's probably a...

    Cannot own PS3 games?

    I saw something linked on Digg about Sony. http://www.gamesradar.com/gb/ps3/game/news/article.jsp?articleId=20060524153157765035&sectionId=1006 The article claims that Sony may be attempting to switch to licensing games instead of selling them. Hopefully this is just a rumor. even though I...

    Sun to back Ubuntu

    I saw an article linked from Digg this morning, and if true could be interesting. http://www.digg.com/linux_unix/Sun_puts_its_weight_behind_Ubuntu_Linux When reading it, I couldn't help but think of a Sun related article from yesterday...
