Watched Knock, Knock yesterday. Two lessons to be learned from this movie. I'll let you all figure what those lessons might be. In the meantime, I'll be hiding under my bed.

#Linux  
I probably could have done this in perl and it would have been much faster…but I could say that about a lot of things. My problem is that Perl is not my command-line. Perl can be a REPL, but bash always is a REPL. Ever look at a patch file? diff -u -r -N httpd-2.0.48/include/ap_listen.h+ Read More

Introduction

Matt Hartley was a co-founder of the ever popular and once iTunes front page featured podcast, Weezy and The Swish. These days, Matt works diligently as a consultant for Earth Networks (WeatherBug), proprietor of the largest privately owned weather station network on the planet. In between his duties at WeatherBug, Matt writes on Linux and Open Source projects for QuinStreet. For those looking to connect with Matt, he can be found on TwitterYouTube and Friend​​​​​​​​​​feed.

In addition to everything above, Matt works on a joint project with his wife called The Home Makeover Diva and provides volunteer services as an assisting project ​​​​​​​​​​coordinator for the WebcamStudio project. Matt also maintains this Website and everything that goes with it.

Previous to his online career, Matt maintained a successful computer repair business. Most of his clients were high-end, big spending home users that were tired of half-baked solutions from his competition. Matt retired from his computer repair business a few years ago as to pursue new interests on the Web.

Ubuntu/Linux

My experience with various desktop Linux distributions dates back to early releases of Red Hat, but really took off with early versions of Knoppix. From there, I traveled to Linspire 4.0-5.0, SimplyMepis 3.1, Debian and then finally settled on Ubuntu. Most recently I made the permanent switch to Linux Mint.

My problem solving and troubleshooting dates back to solving a Flash/Audio issue on Linspire 4.5 with a minor piece of code. Since then, I’ve offered up scripts, work-a-rounds and other ways to make the Linux experience as painless for new users as possible.

These days, I spend my time answering questions, writing articles and providing common sense solutions to problems that crop up for the casual Linux enthusiast. I’ve shared tips on selecting software, peripherals among other items of interest to ease the transition for newer Linux users.
