Donate to Wikipedia

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم الحد لله, Allāh has granted me tawfīq to donate to Wikipedia.  I wouldn’t mention this except for the fact that I hope others, upon reading this, might give it consideration when they otherwise would not have.  A donation to Wikipedia is tax-deductible, so you can save on your taxes or get […]

Fedora 9 seeding stats

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Alhamdulillaah, I’m about to head out from work, and I’m going to have to disconnect my torrent seeds that have been running all day – at least until I get home, in shaaʾ Allaah. Here are the graphical bandwidth charts showing the stats of the seeds from all day.

Fedora 9 is gold!

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Alhamdulillaah, Fedora 9 is officially released! At least, the official torrents are available. The main site doesn’t seem to be updated yet, but then again, it’s not 10 AM, either. I’m grabbing the x86_64 DVD build on one server and the i386 on the other, so I hope to be seeding by […]

Fedora 9 – Why it’s so awesome

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Okay, I know that title is a pretty pretentious statement by itself, as much of Fedora 9’s awesomeness isn’t unique to it. So, I’ll grant that much of the coming awesomeness is related to Gnome 2.22, which is not limited to Fedora 9, nor is Pulseaudio, Upstart (props to the Ubuntuees for […]

Torrent bandwidth usage

Wow! I don’t think it helped that I posted a link to a download from my server, either…

Texas Dawah Convention 2007 Audio Project – overview

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Introduction Alhamdulillaah, a few months back, I successfully wrapped-up the audio recording & production project for the Texas Dawah Convention 2007. This was clearly one of the most ambitious projects in which I’ve been involved in my life, especially given the degree of responsibility I was given and the amount of work […]

WordPress 2.5

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Alhamdulillaah, WordPress 2.5 has been released.  I’ve upgraded my personal blog (this site), the Columbus Dawah blog, and my new family-development blog (more on that later, in shaa Allaah). WordPress 2.5 (Brecker, apparently), is chock-full of new features that I cannot hope to explain in one short post here, so I’ll invite […]

The server itch is back

Before I begin, let me say that my current hosting setup with The Planet is extremely satisfactory, alhamdulillaah.  I have two servers (referenced here & here), one (Hidayah Online) with a monthly bandwidth cap 1500GB (very high, given the 10Mbit pipe), and the other (Audio Islam) with a 20Mbit/s unmetered connection (much more expensive, but […]

Yahoogle! or Goohoo! – that is the question

I’ve really been thinking about it a lot lately, and now I’m close to the point of certainty that the near future of the Internet will include the merger of the two dot-com giants, Yahoo! & Google. All that’s left, in my eyes, other than some business paperwork and antitrust litigation, is choosing the name […]
