The Rule of Law and Immigration

Yeni Recently, a bi-partisan group is attempting to create a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants. Many in our community (and country) support such a plan — I do not. Of course I’m biased. I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on fees, wiped away more tears than one can count, and have had my motives questions all to follow the rule of law and have Yeni and I keep within the bounds of legal immigration. ...

RIP Macbook Pro

I should have knocked on wood. Just the other day, literally, I posted high praises about my laptop — how long I’ve used it, the amazing quality of the hardware, and even how it’s amazing life had made me start to dislike Apple. This afternoon, I used my Macbook in a Dentist’s waiting room. This evening, she left us with the unacceptable blank screen of death. ...

Ride Until You See Blue

[][1]Daytona Beach, FL It’s the first Sunday I can remember that Yeni and I didn’t have to work. How’d we celebrate? With a ride to Daytona Beach, FL. Yeni had never been to Daytona Beach and we had a few hours to kill. We hopped on the Harley and rode…. until we saw blue. =) ...

Lexmark Printer with Ubuntu 12.10

This is another one of those tech articles. Recently, I started using Ubuntu 12.10 as my primary system. I didn’t want to… but that’s another story. Everything installed very well, with the exception of my cheap Lexmark Pro715 printer. I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but printers today are pure crap. When they stopped making the HP 4L, printers as a whole took a steep dive. Anyway…...

Using NFS on Mac OS

Disclaimer: This is one of those tech articles. It’s not that I hate windows, I mean I did get an MCSE and everything… its just that I find linux and mac vastly better. It’s a religious war, and I choose not to preach my choices to you. Mine works for me… whatever works for you is A-OK by me. Anyway… this post is about NFS. What is NFS? NFS is the acronym for Network File System — brought to you by the friendly folks at Sun Mircosystems....
