Review 02: Eclipse (no, not the movie, the IDE)

When I finally found a program better than notepad for editing my CSS and HTML from my early years in dabbling with web site design (I would link you back to my geocities page, but its gone and downloaded in all its proprietary browser glory on my computer — back when I though IE was “the $h!+” ) [...]

I really wish I had more interesting news to post, but, alas, I don’t. A lot has happened since October. I had my second child and less than a month after that we packed up and moved over a hundred miles. Hopefully the drivers for our intergrated wireless card will become availble for Linux soon [...]


I know its been months since I have even updated this site, but I am sad to say that there will be an indefinite hiatus on updates for a long while.

New Look, New Start

LinuxGurl(dot)com will be turning 2 years old next month (on the 28th of March). Its amazing to think that it has been around this long. Yes, I am human and don’t update like I should, but I am going to try to do better. I am still for testing out new OSes via a virtual system. If you think there [...]

Another Post About Conky

After switching around distros for a while, I think I shall stick with Fedora. The biggest change is using yum instead of apt. I’m tempted to created a script that says “hey she really meant yum this instead” but that requires some time. After playing around with wallpapers and configurations for [...]

‘Tis the Season
