One of the biggest complaints a Firefox evangelist encounters is "it doesn’t act or feel like browser X." Internet Explorer users complain that Firefox doesn’t look like what they’re used to. Opera, Safari, and Netscape users complain that it’s missing many of their favorite features. And the social networking gurus point to the powerful social networking features Flock boasts and Firefox lacks. However, all these users overlook one of the most powerful features of Firefox: support for third-party add-ons, which can make emulating the features of other browsers extremely simple.
How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System (Incl. GRUB Configuration) (Debian Etch)
This guide explains how to set up software RAID1 on an already
running Debian Etch system. The GRUB bootloader will be configured in
such a way that the system will still be able to boot if one of the
hard drives fails (no matter which one).
Urbis.com, written completely in Ruby using the open source framework Ruby on Rails, is yet another social networking site, but with a twist: it was created by a writer, for writers. Urbis.com founder Steve Spurgat is not a developer, but he knew right from the start he wanted his Web site to run on open source software. "I’m drawn to the community around it."
openSUSE is one of the most popular free-software-only distributions, and it’s jointly developed by Novell and members of the community. In the first week of November the openSUSE developers released installable live versions of the distro’s latest 10.3 release, one each for KDE and GNOME desktop environments. The live versions are replicas of their install-only cousins in terms of software, and apart from a few quirks, they seem set to replace the older versions soon.
Most people lock their doors and windows, use a paper shredder to protect themselves from identity theft, and install antivirus software on their computers. Yet they routinely surf the Internet without giving a second thought to whether their browser is secure and their personal information safe. Unfortunately, it’s easy for someone with nefarious intentions to use a Web site to glean data from — or introduce spyware to — your computer. Even worse, sometimes all you have to do is randomly click on a site to have your data probed in a most unwelcome way.
Enabling Compiz Fusion On An Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200)
This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion
on an Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) desktop (the system must have a
3D-capable graphics card – I’m using an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 here).

or a desktop cube on your desktop.
Setting Up A Debian Packages Proxy With apt-cacher
There are many ways to
install a Debian Linux but the most common is certainly to use the net-install 160MB CDROM. You can download it from http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/. Booting up your PC from
this CD, you will be capable of setting-up a basic Linux system;
downloading updates, extra softwares and language support directly from
the Internet. But using this method of installation on more
than one PC in your LAN results in a massive waste of your precious
bandwidth. Therefore, maybe you should consider using a
cloning utility like â€œSysimagerâ€. But, as it is most likely that every
computer will be slightly different one from another one, you should
consider setting up a Debian Package Proxy as a long term solution.
