I tried GNOME again for a few days, and after two crashes and progressively slower performance, I’m switching back to MATE on Fedora.
Fedora 16 “Verne” has been released!
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِي الْحَمْدُ لِلَّه, Fedora 16 has been released! You can read the full release notes or just go straight to the torrents for downloading. See the release announcement after the fold…
Fedora 13 released!
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.
Testing out Lekhonee WordPress client
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem 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.
Fedora 11 released!
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Alhamdulillaah, the Fedora Project has released Fedora 11! You can get the torrents and/or check out the new features! (Sorry for the rather uninspired & lazy post…I usually like to share more details, but I’ve got work to do…;) )

High Dynamic Range photography

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…
screen is my new best friend
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem 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…
