Because my Black OS icon where a big success, I decided to extend them with some browser icon’s, because we ALL use browsers ;-)
A few weeks ago I found a way to assign the Thinkvantage key from my Thinkpad R60 to open a terminal under Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10). Because most documentation is outdated, I will place and share a little tutorial with you. I will go to all the steps, even those who might be useless for some, just to make sure that everything is correct.
About Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope): I don’t know if this works in 9.04, but I’m planning a clean install real soon (I talking about 2 – 3 days). You always can subscribe to my RSS-feed to get notification.
Almost a year ago I made a few icon’s that I used as network shortcut for my network so I could easily connect to my laptop. Today I improved them and re-release them for you under the name Black OS icon. Next to an Ubuntu and Windows Icon, I also added a Apple Icon.
After a few weeks of designing I have finally finished a blog design for wordpress and decided to use it as my default blog engine.
Why? Well because it’s popular and while I was designing I noticed it was quite easy to extend with your own code. Next to that, it’s also stable ^_^
Together with this wordpress I decided to ‘ditch’ my old domeinname (codeforpron.com) and in a few days or weeks I will redirect them to this domein (http://stijn-dhaese.be/blog).
The disadvantage of this little operation is that I will lose all my old post from my own system, however I currently moving them to wordpress and for most of the time it’s just copy and paste (lucky me).
I just started to learn C++ and finding a good compiler for windows Vista isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Even more, after I found one it didn’t really work on its own. Offcource you can find lots of information how to get it running if you google a little bit, but even then it was hard for me to get it up and running. Because I know that I’m not the only leek in the world who is learning C++, I written a small tutorial in human language. Here you can read how you install MinGW and get it up and running together with Geany under Windows Vista. I did this under the “home premium” edition of Vista, so the change is big this will work under other versions as well. (and hopefully also under VISTA SP1)
