I want to get some of the basic MCSE certs this year. I have been working in IT for a while now, but never got the time or the energy or maybe the talent to get certified. So this summer I want to change all that. I tend to make notes when I read, but this time I’ll do this online, on this page. DCpromo: – promotion -> converts member servers to DC’s – demotion -> converts DC’s to member…

Graphics in Latex

I use Debian Squeeze (testing at time of writing) and for Latex work my setup is: Kile – for the main coding LatexDraw – for graphs. Once I am happy with the drawing in LatexDraw, I take the code and paste it in Kile. Then: Alt+2 (latex to dvi) , Alt+4 (dvi to ps), Alt+8 (ps to pdf) and Alt+7 to view the pdf.

the install with lxde is much more of a breeze for the less technical amongst us. Just start the net-install cd, select advanced options and the choose alternative options.

My eyecandy adventures took me into OpenSuse land. I’ve installed OpenSuse11. I run for a couple of weeks, missed the debian apt-get too much. I just couldn’t get used to the mess that OpenSuse seems to present as package installation process. So I am back on Debian Lenny, with good old xfce and a nice little dock, called cairo-dock.

I am upgrading the desktop in the house and looked for “eye candy”… is 2008 after all. Although I didn’t fancy the big fat desktops (kde, gnome) and wanted to go for slightly slimmer I have tried Gnome in the process and found it a bit too slow for my machine (pentium4 2G ram). Over a weekend of looking at various eye candy packages (OpenBox, fvwm-crystal) I saw some nice examples of Openbox implementations, but I haven’t got the time…
