Alhamdulillaah, Fedora 13 has been released! Torrents (on a newly redesigned torrent page) are also available. Not a bad way to get back into blogging, either. Look for more updates soon, in shaaʾ Allaah.
Alhamdulillaah, I’ve discovered a new WordPress blogging client packaged with Fedora – namely, Lekhonee. There aren’t a lot of formatting options, but it appears you can post using HTML, so that’s a plus, I think. Let’s see how it goes.
Alhamdulillaah, I am quite pleased with the following HDR image I was able to assemble. While not as good as the best that are out there, it is definitely a step-up from my other attempt I shared here.
Alhamdulillaah, to my pleasant surprise, I discovered that I started using Fedora personally with Fedora Core 4, and not 5 like I had previously thought. This makes me feel better as I’m glad I started using Fedora earlier, because I like to think I recognized the importance of a completely (or as close as possible) free operating system (free here means freedom, not just free of cost).
Note: This is for future reference as I try to make some progress on an old project. I do not think the last value is a default for Fedora, but rather, something added later. If someone knows otherwise, please correct me!
Update: I’m starting to dislike fixed-width templates…corrected the last $PATH value so it will fit on my blog without overflowing into CSS “Elsewhere”.
Update 2: Ahhh! WordPress! WYSIWYG, not WIWIWYG (What I Want is Why You Get)!
Note: This is a post I started writing back in November, but only got around to updating now.
Alhamdulillaah, I cannot believe I’ve lived for so long without knowing about screen (Wikipedia article). To put it as simple as possible, think of screen as a “tabbed” interface for terminals/shells. This is a weak analogy, however, because it enables so much more than tabs do for browsers, for example. Onwards for more details. Continue reading “screen is my new best friend”
