Today in Geek History: The first episode of Star Trek: The Original Series airs in 1966. The show only lasts 3 years on TV, but lives forever on in our hearts.

Bryan has an ambitious goal to crowdsource a fully open low cost Ubuntu laptop. Even if it doesn't succeed the survey in the link will provide some interesting results!
With Jolla have success with crowdfunding a tablet, it's a good time to see if we can't get some mid-range Ubuntu laptops for sale to consumers in the US. I'd like to get some idea if there is enough demand for a very open $500 Ubuntu laptop.

This.
 
Today I received my +Das Keyboard which is sadly branded with Microsoft Windows logos. Unfortunately, there is no option at checkout time for the consumer to select a different logo for the "superkey", but the Company will gladly allow the consumer to purchase replacement keys. #microsofttax

Today is a good day. I just had a call from a telemarketer. Did I yell and scream at them, you ask? Certainly not. Like a good IT administrator I put my skills to use for their benefit. Here's how the conversation went:

Computer: "Press 9 to not be contacted in the future. Press 4 to speak to someone about your mortgage issues"
<presses 4>
TM: "Hello, are you having problems paying your mortgage?"
Me: "Hi, this is the IT department. We intercepted your call as we detected a problem with you phone and need to fix it."
TM: "Oh... ok, well what do we need to do?"
Me: "We're going to need to fix the settings by pressing 4-6-8 and * at the same time"
TM: "Ok, nothing happened."
<alright, so he's not using a Polycom>
Me: "Are you using the new Polycom phones that we deployed?"
TM: "No, it's a Yealink"
Me: "Ok, I see. You haven't had the new Polycom phone deployed to your desk yet. Let me check our technical documentations for the Yealink."
<did a quick Google search, "yealink phone factory reset">
Me: "Alright, do you see an "OK" button on your phone?"
TM: "Yes I do"
Me: "Alright, you're going to press and hold that button for 10 seconds."
TM: "OK, pressing it now"
Me: "Perfect, let me know if you get a password request"
TM: "OK, nothing has popped up ye----"
<click>

That's right. I made a telemarketer unwittingly factory reset his phone which means he will be unable to make anymore calls until someone is able to reconfigure his phone and that will take at least an hour or longer if they can't do it right away!

Use Linux. Life will be better
Introduction
Musician and Opensource enthusiast!  I hope to become a professional musician and pick up some programming on the way. I like to write about Linux and opensource on my blog (you should check it out) specifically I write about the community how it helps Linux, how it hinders Linux and how it can be made better.
