MIT OpenCourseWare

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

I stumbled upon this website today: http://ocw.mit.edu/ It’s too good to be true – Courseware freely downloadable by anyone! I wish my uni can have something like this. 😉

APC UPS

Thursday, June 23rd, 2005

For the last few months, our office building has been doing a lot of generator testing and sometimes these tests went out of schedule. We began to worry about the office servers, as constant power failures may cause data corruptions although we use reiserfs for all of the disks. My colleague and I look for […]

Local APT Repository: Part 2

Thursday, June 23rd, 2005

Final Steps on Server What we did in part 1 was to sync the repository. Now we need to make sure that our APT Server can serve the files for use by client machines. For this purpose, you can either choose to export the filesystem using NFS, or using Samba. I chose NFS. In the […]

New Monitor

Friday, June 10th, 2005

Although I rarely go for used products, this time I can’t let go of the deal. I just acquired a 19″ monitor – Samsung SyncMaster 955DF from a colleague leaving for the Philippines. How much? RM150.00 This model is not the best out there, but it’s really worth the price. 🙂

Viewsonic 91f+

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

I bought a Viewsonic 91f+ 19″ monitor for my office a few months ago for almost RM1,000.00. Today we found it dead! Nothing is displayed on the screen except for a bright line in the middle. Don’t buy this monitor!!! 🙁

Local APT Repository: Part 1

Wednesday, June 8th, 2005

If you have a bunch of Debian machines to be taken care of, you must have been using APT a lot. APT is incredible, but if you use it to update multiple machines, you’ll be bored to death waiting each and individual machine to download packages. What if I tell you there’s a way we […]
