I just want to caution everyone about a super “leet” or is that “1337?” group of “haxors” that are totally able to mess very slightly with a WordPress site that hasn’t been updated in 2 years.
Great job! We are all very proud of you script kiddies :) Or, I guess technically that would be pig-fuckers. Yes, it is a group of super leet script kiddies that do schooper hackz when they aren’t too busy having sex with pigs. Enjoy those pig dicks, xc0d30ffx!
For example, Navigating Node Relationships on w3schools.com has a simple example describing how to loop through the childNodes of an element. This worked great with their test data. You can use their “Tryit” editor to actually run this code using their books.xml data. Read more »
Moving Dual Boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux to SSD
My experience moving dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux to SSD. My system was dual booting Windows 7 Home Premium and Ubuntu 12.04. Windows using the “C:” partition, the 100MB boot partition (useful if you are using bitlocker, which I am not), and a 13GB recovery partition. So, effectively, Windows was wasting 3 primary partitions just to run. Gotta love Windows. Here’s how I did it, I’ll try to be as detailed as possible. Read more »
What is the deal with cell phone scratching getting so much publicity? This is way off the mark for this site again. But with all the press the iPhone 5 has received about the ease with which the phone scratches and chips I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents. If you have been following “scuffgate” (seriously?) you will have seen sites like engadget apologizing for apple and letting the public know that it’s ok that apple put out a garbage phone that you have to treat more tenderly than an infant (and you should go out and buy the phone right now!). For those of us in the real world, it might be a different story.

I am in an area with rather poor WiFi reception and was looking into external WiFi antennas (outdoor type). I came across Amped Wireless. Specifically I was looking at their UA600EX directional outdoor units. Cutting past the marketing hype it seemed that it might be a decent product. The reviews were good, all from Windows users though. I wanted to find something concrete on whether or not there was a Linux driver, and whether performance was good.
Obviously, I thought, a quick way to get this information would be to talk to the manufacturer. I shot Amped Wireless a quick email and went to check the Linux HCL and it looks like there is a driver available. Meanwhile, Amped Wireless emailed me back, Read more »
If you stumbled upon this page looking for the Schlunix Arch Linux outdated package repository, I regret to inform you that it was shut down in August 2012. The cost of maintaining the package mirror and holding old packages was too much to keep up with as a hobby.
Hopefully at some point in the future I will be able to restart the outdated package repository. Donations would help. Or maybe I could win a scratch off lottery. It was fun while it lasted and I’m glad it helped people.
I believe there are still a couple sites that hold packages, either intentionally, or because they are a few days behind the tier 1 mirrors. Another option is to not clear out your old packages after doing an update.

Current state of Dreamhost Support
When I first signed up for Dreamhost years ago, they were always great about promptly replying to all support requests. Usually I would get an email back from them within 2 hours. Sometimes in less than an hour. This always gave me a good feeling that they had a fine tuned support structure in place, and the manpower to take care of each of their customers. Lately, in the past year I would say, Dreamhost Support has gone downhill dramatically. Right now, I have 3 trouble tickets open with Dreamhost support, as old as 2 months. No replies to any of them at the time of writing. Read more »
