Reset your Settings for any Program

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Desktop Views: 3794 Comments
Tutorial quote: Ever messed with settings and majorly screwed something up? I have.

Yesterday I was trying to pull a stunt by trying to embed Konsole in my KDE desktop and when I restarted the X server I had no desktop icons and couldn’t even get back to my settings to change it back! I was thinking OMG, RRR (Repartition, Reformat, Reinstall) time.

But wait, what if I just clear out my settings? Kind of a crude way of doing it, but it worked.

Video Surveillance With ZoneMinder On Ubuntu

Post date: September 9, 2007, 00:09 Category: Desktop Views: 9132 Comments
Tutorial quote: ZoneMinder is the top Linux video camera security and surveillance solution. In this document I will cover how to get ZoneMinder up and running on Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS or Dapper Drake with the recent updates included. The surveillance system I am covering here utilizes 4 Dome CCTV cameras hooked up to a single Kodicom kmc-8800 capture card, in addition I also used infra red LEDs so my cameras could see in the dark (honestly I am abit scared to look). ZoneMinder also does a good job with IP Cameras, unfortunately they are considerably expensive in my part of the world, hence 4 cameras would blow my budget.

Benchmarking BSD and Linux

Post date: June 18, 2005, 22:06 Category: Benchmarks Views: 4581 Comments
Tutorial quote: These benchmarks are the result of my scalable network programming research. My interest in this area is to see how scalable and fast network applications can be on standard PC hardware.

I have done most of my research on Linux 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6 kernels using a home-grown distribution I affectionately call "Leanux". I have experimented with several APIs and methods to try and get the most scalability and performance out of a web server. The ultimate goal, however, is to demonstrate scalability by surviving a Slashdotting.
