Well, I am now hosting off my brand new server at work. Yes – it is a server, not a desktop I am working on. Here are the specs:
Dual Xeon 2.4Ghz processors
1.5 GB PC2700 RAM
72 GB SCSI RAID hard disks
Quatro FX 500 video card
and to top it off, a nice 19″ LCD monitor.
Also, I have decided to go with Ubuntu as my Linux distribution of choice. I have been impressed by it’s ease of use in all areas except multimedia support. The problem is a philosophical one – An operating system that has 100% free open-source software cannot include codecs. However, an operating system without codecs is useless (to me). What good is a music player if it can only play CD’s?
Also I would like to mention that the Regular Guys have come back to the land of FM. I can once again enjoy Larry in my left ear, and Eric in my right. They haven’t missed a beat, and are just as funny as ever. You can listen to the radio show online here:
