Wobbly windows in Dapper

There were a lot of upgrades today in Dapper. And it turns out compiz is one of them. So I installed it and xserver-xgl. Here’s how I got it running. First install the xserver-xgl and compiz packages using apt-get or synaptic (Originally taken from the instructions at http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Installxgl) Then edit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom and make the empty […]

Multi-input touch screens

Multi-input touch screen demos (Flash required).  This is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.  The more I watch it the more I want to make it work.  It definitely feels like that’s going to be the next generation in computers. I want one for my Desktop, and more importantly I want to make sure […]

Planet categories

Well, mpop is back on the planet because he showed me how I can just subscribe to his technology category on his blog. I have since learned that wordpress is able to do this too. Ive been thinking about adding a Planet category that I can post everything I want to appear on the planet. […]

Turns out my friend Jose from Argentina was going clubbing that night so I was saved. I read the e-mail at […]

Test 2

I botched something up in WordPress by using the Google toolbar’s spelling function. But I think it’s fixed now… Nope

Ubuntu Dapper

The next release of Ubuntu version 06.04 is called Dapper. Because my friend Joe was upgrading Quod Libet to use version 0.10 of the Gstreamer framework and needed help testing it I decided I’d upgrade to Dapper. The upgrade went smoother than any upgrades I’ve done before. Debian’s system really puts OS X and Windows […]

Testing… Testing…

Well, looks like there’s finally been a release of the LivePress plugin for WordPress 2.0.  I can’t edit my LJ account settings in it but here’s to hoping it still works.
