This kid is six. Six years old. Clearly, there is hope for future generations as this kid shows off his finely tuned skills. I have this album on cassette somewhere....

Step 1, sell your privacy in exchange for a free operating system.
 
For my own records to check out later once I've 10 installed.

Windows 10 is spying on almost everything you do – here’s how to opt out | BGR
Windows 10 is amazing. Windows 10 is fantastic. Windows 10 is glorious. Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 i...

I only use Windows for some games.
Everything else happens on Linux.

All Righty Then...with some subtle changes to my latest blog, we've made those necessary changes and made those changes public. Here you can get the alpha release of our project to make an easy-to-use front end to MaryTTS, or Mary text to speech. MaryTTS is an amazingly versatile program, well written and well maintained. We chose  to support this program because we feel it will stand the test of time.

But there is other news as well, Some good news, some maybe not so good but necessary. But after it is all said and done, the project named "Reglue"... the project that places computers into the homes of disadvantaged kids, should bear all of your names. Without you, Reglue would not have enjoyed a sliver of the success we've had over the past 5 years. And that lays bare a testament to the power of the global Linux Community.
Well, hey there. I was emailed the other day, and asked if I still wrote the Blog of helios. Well, obviously I do. Just not as often these days. See...the actions and accomplishments of my non profit "Reglue", are mostly reported here. But you know...? There is just so many times that I can ...

My advice: lose the bloatware, promote this change, profit.
 
Samsung mobile division is running towards a cliff, can it turn in time to preserve its profit margins?
This week saw Samsung post its fifth quarterly drop in profits in a row, and the biggest drag on the company line? The mobile division, which saw profits fall by 37.6%. If Samsung's quarterly reports follow their annual cycle, Q3 is going to see another drastic fall. Will Samsung change course?

I had a Samsung Galaxy S. It was great but the bloatwear made it useless. All those apps I couldn't uninstall. Some of which eating up ram even when inactive.

They did an outstanding job. Seriously, this is by far, the best "ad" for Linux I've ever seen. Period.

I agree, the text needed to slow down in a few areas. Still, pretty decent message.

Overclocking without ample cooling, it happens.
 
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

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.
