Debian 5.0 Lenny released … [updated]

February 18, 2009 – 3:22 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Debian 5.0 Lenny was released on 14th this month. 22 months of development, I knew the exact release date long time upfront, but I didn't plan that right on that day FoolControl will go through some downtime :/ Nevertheless, Lenny is out, and out of sudden I don't have much stuff left to talk about on this very topic now :) I find Lenny to be one of the best releases Debian releases yet, I too contributed to this release as much as I could. Didin't make into package maintainers, but it's all matter of free time, and dedication really. I've been with Lenny, well pretty much since Etch was released, I moved to Lenny. Since Lenny is stable now, and new testing is Squeeze, don't jump on Squeeze right about now, since there aren't security updates at the moment, since security team for Squeeze isn't formed yet. However, Lenny has been great ...

Downtime?

February 16, 2009 – 11:06 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Foolcontrol has been down, that is ... you'd actually see "Hello World" post and that's about it, for last ~3 days. I was actually making switching from one server to another, and I really thought there won't be any disturbances (why oh why did I think that) and ended up with ~3 days downtime. Oh well, now it's all fine, and if for anything I must apologize to all the people that are hosted under FoolControl :) Nevertheless, what bothers me the most is that Debian 5 (lenny) was released in the meantime after 22 months of development, but I'll make sure I blog all about it :)

Windows 7 is identical to KDE4?

February 7, 2009 – 5:37 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Since everybody and everything keeps talking about Windows 7, here's what I've got to say :) I said it tons of times, that new Windows looks is identical to one if KDE4 (posts: Gnome vs KDE … after release of KDE 4 and KDE 4) Nevethless, these guys went a step further with this same thought, Is it Windows 7 or KDE 4? Source: ZDNet Australia: Is it Windows 7 or KDE4?

Zeitgeist Addendum

February 4, 2009 – 2:39 pm by Adnan Hodzic


I've been using this day to chill, go over some movies and such, neverthless Zeitgeiest Addendum, for all the fans, I just thought you might want to know something: From: Adnan Hodzic <adnan@foolcontrol.org> Date: Wed, Feb 4, 2009 at 11:06 AM Subject: Few technology questions from a "fan" To: comments@zeitgeistmovie.com Hello, I've been watching and been enjoying it. But, now in Zeitgeist Addendum I've come across a thing I cannot simple pass by. If I haven't made it clear so far, I'm not a "standard" critic, I'm more of a guy who pretty much diggs your stories, since I myself have come to pretty much same conclusion on most of the things you're talking about in Zeitgeist. But without further ado, here's my question, in Addendum at the end of the movie (1:55:39) where you're saying what we (the people) should do to prevent what's going on, you mention from quitting our job to what to watch and what not to watch, and it's all ...

Live Linux today

February 2, 2009 – 9:42 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Since, from time to time I use FoolControl as my best hate catalyst ... well I'm gonna go ahead and hate one of the things I love the most. Couple of years ago, I did one pretty unusual thing, my hdd died and I didn't swap "my computers", instead I actually powered it on without hdd using live linux distributions and used my usb stick to imitate my hard drive. Since it took awhile to get my new hdd, I went through many live linux distros and what I did is I tested their uptime :) Now I thought I had these results recorded/stored somewhere, but sadly couldn't find them. All I can remember is that among many I think Knoppix scored the best results and managed to stay up for 8 days. I disliked Knoppix back then and I still dislike it today, but I remember at the time I was ...
