So finally, after repeated requests from my kids (my middle one, anyway), I decided to see why my #Slackware 64 rig was crashing more often than not over the weekend. Shown was the reason why. This machine has been going strong for a good few years now (not consistently, but more on than off). I checked the hardware monitor in the BIOS and the CPU temp was ~130°F. It was then that I realized it was time to dust off my PC building skills and fix the problem. After removing the dust from between the fan and the heatsink along with the dried up thermal pad residue, some fresh thermal paste later and the beast was purring like a kitten again with temps of ~84°F whilst running my son's Tekkit games. And all was good in MirandaLand again. :-)

The #Lubuntu update is finishing up as I head to my next destination. Gonna test it out once I get home.

Updating the Eee to the latest version of #Lubuntu.

Happy 50th, #BASIC! Thank you for giving me all those late nights of programming and typing in all those games from Family Computing rags as a kid. :-)

All of these, and I mean all of these, I have at my job. Kill me now, please?

GNOME should make this a fitting release by making it run well in the #RaspberryPi and the #BananaPi. :-p

Mark Shuttleworth tells us how the next #Ubuntu release, named “Utopic Unicorn”, will be like. :-p

Git-cloning the #netcat album. The readme file gave me a good chuckle. :-)

A band called #netcat releases an album as a #Linux kernel module. Brilliant. The sample song on the article is pretty good.

Pretty much sums up how I feel about #Ubuntu. The spinoffs, like #Xubuntu, #Lubuntu, and #Kubuntu, are likely a better experience IMO.

Hardly surprised given that #Belkin is now in charge of the #Linksys brand. #wrt54g #openwrt #fail
