I’m back!

Good thing is over, I’m here again 🙁

Honestly … it has been one of the best holidays of my life, now to study, prepare jobs, the scholarship … and everything that touches.

As soon as I have the pictures of the trip I’ll hang them with a small chronicle 😉

Finish with gates

That people are bored a lot in front of a computer ?, That’s well known, to such extremes have developed things like Xbill. The game is about ending Bill Gates, before he installs windows on computers

Speaking of linux

I am one of those who has decided not to continue with Windows Vista, for my XP it is great, simple and effective but it will not be like this forever, so I have decided to take the final step to linux.

At the moment at home I have installed both operating systems on all computers, except the server, where I only have linux and for now will continue so while XP has support 😉

When I take my first step towards Linux … I must admit that I have stumbled and fallen. xD

I had installed kernel version 2.6.9, (it had been a long time since my ubuntu) after a tour of kernel.org I saw that there was a lot of news, but to avoid problems due to my “little” experience in linux I decided to install a new one image from the official repositories, well, I have been unable to run any new kernel, if I do not start from 2.6.9 I am stopped in “booting kernel”.

I have looked on the internet and it may be because of the graphics card (ATI) or because the hard drive is SATA and maybe the new kernels do not support it. Although I have tried to remedy these failures I have not been able to 🙁 So for the moment I’m left with my kernel, until I see one that suits me or someone can help me with the problem.

After entering, I realized that I can not use the pendrive (before if I could) or the SD card reader (will I have touched something in the file system?) For the moment that does not bother me much, if there is no other I will format a drive to make it work.

The sound card does not recognize me either, so I can not hear anything xDD (this I’ve never seen)

Finally, yesterday I mounted on the server, the FTP server vsftpd, I was passing files from other computers to this and everything went great, even could be accessed perfectly from outside the local network (Eva probo :-P). I also decided to install the web server 🙂 and everything worked great.

But when today I went to use the ftp server to transfer some practices from the laptop to the fixed (since the pen drive did not work :-P) I have not been able to access it, xD and not even from outside the network appear as active services (web and ftp).

I have not had much time to look because, and we already know that with linux as you do not have patience and time .. hehe

The same when I have a little hole … I’ll count.

Memories of an era, Rush, Ireland

On Friday night he called me Kali, Rodrigo had come to Salamanca, and he wanted to see me.

The three of us agreed that wonderful summer in Rush, Ireland. The truth is that that night with Rodrigo and Kali brought me good memories about that time .. about 6 years ago (if I remember correctly it was about 2001). It would have been great to have been able to meet all together sometime after that …

We are many who were in that English camp in Ireland (organized by kellscollege) and very few with whom I still maintain contact, and it is a pity, because there were wonderful people.

I remember those afternoons with Guille, by the way I saw him recently in Sexyono, that you know I voted you with a 10 :-D, kali, Carlos and Rodrigo, Javi “the long” who also studied computer science 😛 (the last time I saw him), the Galicians, Maria, Julia, Sonia, Hugo, Pedro, Uxia, Natalia, also Maria the one with the massages, Sara, Gerard, we had a mishap with her clavicle … to the canaries … Mariona etc etc

And also to the Yugoslavs, Igor and Cia … who invited us to a bottle to Guille and to me, my mother as we finish xD I do not even remember how I got home 😛

And to the French, Remi (I still have him in the msn), Marion Boccacio or Boccaccio I do not remember well 😛 (I lost track makes it sooooo, the last thing I had was a mail @ laposte.net …) and some more but that I no longer remember their names .. 🙁

And what about the truchoteist wedding we celebrate? and of the cochinorras? (only for connoisseurs) 😛

Surely I forgot one more, since I’m remembering this from memory 🙂 Anyway, for all of us who were there, a big hug very strong wherever you are 😉

If someone wants to contact someone, you already know my mail, ta hanging there 😉

Ireland, Rush 2001 summer camp

Speed study ADSL and Cable

A study on ADSL speed and cable has been carried out, where we can know the results globally or by communities.

Interesting percentages of efficiency, something that I found very curious is that the ADSL 20 Megas is unable to offer better service than the 10 🙂 Despite how well they paint it …

They also let us know that Madrid, Catalonia, and Comunidad Valenciana are the sites where better Internet services are offered (price and result)

Another thing that I liked is that for 4 MB the best services offered in my community is ONO (In spite of how much people complain, it works for me quite well), which is who I have contracted with my connection.

If you want to see all the results of the study, you have it on the ADSL Zone page.

Ultimate Ubuntu is based on Edgy Eft, the stable version of Ubuntu Linux, with all the extras of series: p2p, multimedia, web design, programming … few are the things that we need to download and install after completing the installation process of this option .

There are approximately 1.7 GB of data in ISO format, which after burning it to a DVD with our favorite burner, will provide us with a complete GNU / Linux system.
