Need help getting multiple monitors to work on your Ubuntu system? 

There are several ways to end up with a satisfactory experience on the desktop with Ubuntu despite their recent confusion of the user interface. We will discuss some of those another day (KDE vs. Gnome vs. Cinammon vs. Unity). Today we are going to talk about setting up your desktop environment for multiple monitors. This article assumes you are running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10, however, the process should work equally well back to version 10.04 LTS unless otherwise noted.

Assuming you have installed Ubuntu and are successfully sitting at the desktop (the window manager at this point is irrelevant), a couple of questions will now come to mind. What am I going to be using my linux desktop environment for? If you are going to be running office applications, email, basic web browsing and the occassional movie, you might be done. The default (read: Open Source) binary video drivers for both AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveaux) are perfectly acceptable for all of those things. In fact, recently, they both have picked up some compositing support (so you can run the nifty 3D window effects in Compiz or KWin) as well as support for gaming. However, that support is spotty and performance still leaves a lot to be desired.

Behind the Scenes with SpaceX Production, Testing, and Launches

Today marks the one month countdown to the SpaceX launch for the next NASA Commercial Resupply Services Mission (CRS-2). Pinehead is going get you prepped for launch by covering SpaceX from the outside, in. We are going to start with the big picture and drill down to various rocket/spacecraft components and launch preparations as we get closer to T-minus zero for CRS-2, scheduled for March 1st.

SpaceX is set up in several locations around the United States including a small Pacific island. Headquarters is located in Hawthorne, California. Their rocket testing facility is in McGregor, Texas. SpaceX has launch complexes at Cape Canaveral, Vandenberg Air Force Base in Lompoc, California, and Omelek Island about 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii. They are also considering a launch site Brownsville, Texas located at the southern tip of the state

This is my Linuxacdemy review: It's pretty evident i love the service =)


Linuxcademy will take you from a Linux noob to a Linux ninja in one week.

I started using Ubuntu Linux a year and a half ago, and as a normal Windows user who had never used Linux before it got overwhelming pretty fast. It took me a lot of googling just to get the basics. But everything that i learnt in year and a half is already available in the linuxcademy free course. If i had come across Linuxcademy before, i would have learnt the same stuff in a week without feeling like a noob. With Linuxcademy all the right answers are available in one place and i no longer have to Google every time i come across a Linux problem. The videos are just the right length and easy to understand.

The course is also good for people who want to learn how to manage Linux based VPS through the command line. I'd highly recommend Linux Academy to anyone who wants to learn and use Linux.

How do you guys feel about google+/twitter cross posting?

Linux In The Cloud: Windows Azure vs. Amazon Web Services | 

Until recently, the most viable cloud option for Linux virtual servers has been Amazon Web Services. But in mid 2012, Microsoft launched Linux Virtual Servers on Windows Azure. If you don’t know already, Windows Azure is a cloud platform for hosting back-end content for apps and traditional Windows Server, SQL Server, and now Linux and other open source database servers. Microsoft has come a long way with its support for open source and Linux. Given that, I set out on a mission to review and compare these services to Amazon. I’ll be honest up-front–when I set out on this mission I was completely biased towards Amazon, and I was surprised by what I found.
