A while back I had used Microsoft’s Live Mesh to sync data between my Windows netbook and our server. The problem with that was the only way I could get to my synced data using my Linux PC was to use the web interface. So a few days ago I tried out SpiderOak because it does support Linux. But then my dad started using Dropbox. When I found out about that I decided I would find out which of the two services where best for me, so I got a Dropbox account and installed the client on both my Linux PC and my Windows PC. After trying out these two online storage services I decided to write a comparison of the two on this blog, so here it is.

Last night I dreamed that I built a robot that looked like a cat! In fact it looked like my cat Mittens! LOL.
And guess what OS I installed on my robocat? Linux!
I dreamed that I would SSH into my robocat to control it.
It sure would be fun to really build a Linux-powered robot like that, but I just don’t have the money or resources.
I recently installed some gadget sidebars onto both of my PCs:
For my Windows 7 netbook I installed the Windows 7 sidebar gadget: http://nes.bplaced.net/sidebar7.html
The install was very easy, just follow the instructions on the gadget’s website.
For my Fedora 14 Linux notebook I installed Google Gadgets for Linux: http://code.google.com/p/google-gadgets-for-linux/
See my earlier post about Google Gadgets for Linux here: http://blog.isaacmedia.net/2011/01/google-gadgets-for-linux/
To install get the google repository: http://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/yum.html
And run as root:
root@computer:# yum install google-gadgets-gtk
To start Google Gadgets for Linux (with sidebar) run the command:
Or click Google Gadgets (GTK) under Internet in the main menu
I also suggest running compiz, as compiz provides nice transparency for the gadgets. Otherwise you get ugly gray boxes around all the gadgets. Continue reading Gadget Sidebars
For my birthday my Dad gave me a copy of MS Windows 7 Pro.
First thing I did was to buy an extra GB of Kingston ram (KAC-MEME/1G) and install it in the netbook. (The slot is on the bottom of the mother board.)
At first I tried installing to my netbook via USB flash drive, but I kept getting an error saying:
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition.

It’s been a while since I have written in this blog.
Now my PC is running Fedora 14, I am still using the compiz window manager, and emerald decorator.
I have a small Acer Aspire one netbook with Windows. (I am going to install windows 7 on it soon.)
I am on facebook!
Cygwin is a collection of tools which provide a Linux look and feel environment for Windows. It contains a DLL wich acts as as a Linux API layer providing Linux API functionality for apps compiled with it.
I use Cygwin to host a SSH server on my Windows netbook and server.
Cygwin also has an X server, so I can forward X via SSH to Windows PCs.
You can run some of my bash scripts on Cygwin.

I wrote this little bash script that calculates the prime factors of a number.

Tested and works on Fedora 14, and MS Windows XP (with cygwin)
