A few hours ago a hacker posted claiming to have hacked the Plex Forums. The hack has been confirmed by Plex staff but the full extent of the hack is unknown at this time. “We’re investigating. The forums machine was definitely compromised, likely via PHP/IPB vulnerability. We have no reason to believe that any other parts …

Need better control over where your tabs open in Firefox? The Open Tabs Next to Current extension for Firefox will always open new tabs in the browsers to the right of the current one you are looking at.  It is a small tweak, but very helpful if you are…

New hard drives installed after my previous died. One drive is running my main OS, Ubuntu MATE 14.04 with a dedicated home partition. The other drive handles my scratch installs I use for software testing: Ubuntu MATE 15.04 and Antergos with MATE.

This prevents me from doing something stupid with my important installation while still being able to test stuff.

Even if you don't live in the area hit by this, dog owners should speak with their vet regarding the vaccine early. I'm calling tomorrow. Like with human flu, it might not be a big deal...or it could be a mess.
 
The dog flu spreads (canine influenza virus) has hit the Atlanta area, and may be “incubating” in Charleston. And before the summer is over, may infiltrate other areas as well since dogs do travel so much, and are so social. This Spring, the dog flu was identified in the Chicago area, ultimately a few cases... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/steve-dales-pet-world/2015/06/dog-flu-spreads-dog-flu-devil-went-down-to-georgia/" class="more-link">Re...

Anti-vaxxers won't vaccinate their dogs because they think it will make them autistic. :(

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.
