    Recalbox Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming

    I’ll be first to admit that I’ve been putting off setting up a Raspberry Pi for my wife to use for retro gaming. I knew there were a few games she missed but Mario Kart 64 was the big one. I’ll also be first to point out that setting up a RetroPi isn’t difficult with… Read more »

  • The Bigger Linux Metaphor

    Who was it that said that Linux was like lumber? Was that Doc Searls? I don’t think it was Mad Dog. Well, I don’t see how the metaphor fits. Linux is not lumber, it’s a tool based on a legacy of programming. But none of the tools we use now (and I’m being really general)… Read more »

    Bashing Your Shell: Shell Scripting Boot Camp

    Spend enough time on the command line and you’ll eventually want to do many tasks…that take some intricate commands…repeatedly. A good example of this, is making thumbnails of photos. Basically, our workhorse of this script is not ImageMagick (which provides convert, identify and mogrify), but the for loop in bash itself. Ready? Grab your pen-knife… Read more »

  • Using Command Line Aliases – Frequently

    Back in 1994, when I had been using SunOS for three years and Linux for almost two years, people started talking about how you could make DOS command line abbreviations. What swill.

    There are few things in life more irritating than having your Internet go out. This is often caused by your router needing a reboot.
