i recently got a hp mini 1116nr from a local pawn shop. decent little machine and fun to play with.
naturally, within an hour of owning it, i was opening the case to see how much room was in it for mods. low and behold, i find the hp mobile drive bay, and an unused usb port. i took a premiertek usb wifi stick apart and cut the board down to fit in the case and ran the antenna jack out the side of the case.
here is the final result – using both my 5dbi and 10dbi antennas. i put electrical tape on the outside of the case – this is temporary until i find a similar usb wifi card that is wireless n or decide to hack something else into the case.
# install open ssh server
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
# backup the default ssh config to the home directory
sudo cp /etc/ssh/sshd_config ~
# edit the config file using vi (gedit works as well if your in a gui)
sudo vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
# change the following lines – you dont want root to be able log in, change the default port from 22 and allow users – so change the ones listed below
AllowUsers user1 user2
# restart the ssh server to commit the changes
sudo restart ssh
dont forget to setup the port forwarding on the router for external access!
i have been attempting to teach myself photoshop, illustrator and flash. this will be a bunch of the stuff i have made via tutorials i have found.
below is some design i did using photoshop and illustrator and photoshop. the one with the girl on the bench (its julianne moore) was done in photoshop and the rest were done in illustrator.
webmin is a great gui tool for a server. i have been using it in slackware and tested it in ubuntu server as well. while it does not replace the command line (nothing will) it is a handy addition and provides many tools that make configuration much easier.
add these to your
deb http://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib
deb http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository sarge contrib
now import the gpg key
sudo apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
sudo apt-get update
now install webmin
sudo apt-get install webmin
to access webmin, open a browser, and then go to https://you-server-ip:10000/
(replacing your-server-ip with the local ip of the box you installed webmin on)
you will then be prompted for username and password. you will either need to assign a password to root or log in using a user with root privileges.

configure the wine registry for windows gaming:
HK_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/ and add a new key named
Direct3D. then add the following strings and values:

you can add it manually as shown above, or, copy and paste the following to a
graphics.reg file and import it to wines registry.
"VideoDescription"="NVIDIA GeForce GT 220"
enable support for misc binaries:
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment the following line:
then add the following to
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc defaults 0 0
now add the following to
echo ':windows:M::MZ::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
echo ':windowsPE:M::PE::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register

sweet home 3d is one of the best home design programs i have used. its interface is incredibly simple, easy to use and intuitive. within minutes of installing the program i was able to input the dimensions for my basement and create an outline and 3d walkthru of what i wanted to do and show my wife. this application has made home design amazing. if you or someone you know is planning on building, remodeling, or just moving around the living room, i recommend downloading and installing this program.
its available for linux, mac and windows. i have used both the linux version and the windows version. both run flawlessly. you can download it here.
here is what i was able to put together in less than 30min. as you build the walls on the blueprint window, the program automatically generates a 3d overhead view of whatever your working on. you can change between an aerial view and a virtual walkthru.[SinglePic not found]
microsoft had the brilliant idea of sharing the system root folder by default. here is how to remove that:
start -> accessories -> admin tools -> computer management. once in computer management, expand the share folders tree and in the right window, right-click the share you want to disable and click remove.
if the above doesnt work, you can use
regedit and do the following (if the key isnt there, you need to create it):
Data Type: REG_DWORD
another option you can do is this (you can replace the c$ with the share you want to remove):
open the command prompt and type:
net share c$ /delete
