Conversation with AT&T and a guy who wants to cancel his service. 

Caller: Hi I'd like to cancel my service. 
ATT: OK sir, we can have the service canceled for a small 99$ Cancellation fee and that could be done the next billing cycle. 
Caller: Wait why a 99$ why a fee and exactly 99$?! it sounds like an excuse to just make up charges. 
ATT: Well I don't make them, so sorry about that. May I ask why you are canceling your internet, and if you are, will you be switching to another provider?
Caller: Well, I wouldn't have a problem if I actually had internet. My line's been down for over 3 days and I a refuse to pay for nothing. 
ATT: Are you going to Comcast?
Caller: What? Maybe, I don't know...
ATT: Comcast hires ugly people and they will steal your cable. 
Caller: WHAT?!!!! Are you talking smack about Comcast just so I could stay on ATT?
ATT: No! Well not really I’m just telling you what could happen..... Would 20$ credit help you to stay with us?
Caller: No!!!!
ATT: Well what do you want?
Caller: Internet!! Can you do that for me?
ATT: I’m sorry Sir, I'm afraid I can't do that. 
Caller:.....(Hung up) .Click...(beep beep beep beep)

Our new team Linux Server, Runs Debian Wheezy and doubles as a footrest. 80MB second transfer speeds thanks to Raid0 WD Black drives and a 240GB SSD. It may not look like much but it puts the thousand dollar Windows lab server to shame. it also hosts counter strike 1.6 for the gamers in the LAB. The duct tape is to prevent me from opening the drives with my feet and yes I unplugged the power button.

OUYA Hacks/Cracks  - 
 
OK I guess it's time I showed off my Custom OUYA case I made for the Console. The original one felt too big and heavy, plus the air-flow made the things too warm all the time so I redesigned it into a rectangular square with direct access to the fan  and some space for air flow below the board. I also used Sugru for the edges to make it grip and give it a cleaner look. ( I can't cut things well with a table saw made for wood.) I used leftover plastic and paint so this was technically free for me. It just the time it took to make.

+Mark Blankenship I've never 3D printed, But I assume really well! It's literally a box with cuts in it. The top holes may need to be made by hand since i don't know if 3D printers can do holes atop a hollow box.

Can't wait to try it, it's been almost 2 years since i've used gnome, maybe it's time to try again. 
 
We are excited to have a special video tour of the latest GNOME release. Check it out to see all the great features in the latest version.

No CD drive, No Floppy. and can't boot to USB. How in the world am I to re-install the OS on this machine? Easy. Attach a USB floppy drive that contains a special USB bootloader(Plop) to boot CrunchBang11 on a USB. Easy right? My next challenge is to install Windows XP. Yay!

Reinstalling Linux is rather easy. Grab a netinst files for your favorite distribution. Grab NetBoot (http://brokestream.com/netboot.html). It's a small all in one PXE boot environment. Just place everything on some other computer on the same network and you can install through powers of internet. :)

If you need more help with this, I'd be happy to provide it.
