I finally looked into this idea and definitely find this useful for backing up important files in a place I wont lose 'em.

I also realized the potential of making MULTIPLE gmail accounts and what I could do with this...


YOU CAN ONLY DO THIS WITH THE FIREFOX WEB BROWSER!

im using version 2.0



GO HERE AND INSTALL THE ADD-ON FOR THE BROWSER, AND LET FIREFOX RESTART:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1593 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1593)


now observe my screen shots, its pretty simple to use..

once your browser is restarted go to the tools menu and click Gspace..

*its basically like using an FTP client, and please REMEMBER uploads go slower than downloads*

* i guarantee you will probably have to click this button in most cases to see your larger files on your hard drive

We have people here on this forum who have trouble finding MSPAINT..

Your right, gotta crawl before you get invited to the swingers party.

I remember an instructor made us research online storage alternatives. Gmail was on top of my list.

Did you ever find out how to do that port forwarding for Slackware?

Ive been too focused on AJAX type stuff and graphic design lately that I havent really had time to mess with anything else

I was looking in that thread (tech Q and A) today and seen that. I was just curious if that command line I gave you (today) would work but didn't know if you saw it.

Oh, I remember now...

it was as simple as going into the rc.d directory and un-remming a line in a file, I just forget the file name.

also you had to set something as ALLOW or DENY in the bash script where all of the DNS chain commands are made

I should dig up my iptables reference out of my storage tomorrow

I figured it would be something simple. Last semesters we set up our own web servers, I opted for a windows machine using iss 6.0 as opposed to apache on a linux box because I thought it would be easier. I regret that. But I did get apache working on a windows box. Ha Ha!

well i was gonna install open suse or the new slackware on this fairly new laptop, but then i read into the partitioning problems of installing a linux distro after Vista has already been installed, and came to the conclusion that the only way to get it to dual boot properly is wipe out vista and do the linux install


by that point in time i had already installed multiple python and json modules + mySQL and close to 50 other files so i could do a live build of my companies site on my local machine. That took 7-8 hours to get working properly with the DBA and engineer at work so I said fuck it and just stuck with Vista

I have a spare laptop and desktop sitting in the basement that im gonna start fucking around with though on a rainy day

I honestly have fewer crashes with it than XP. I understand what they were trying to accomplish with the release, but the fact Microsoft is notorious for taking a piece of the GUI and revising it to a hole different look in feel after people have become comfortable with something over the years bothers me. I find it time consuming if Im trying to quickly find a file that is 5+ sub directories deep, and being forced to use those little drop down arrows and all the other crap they implemented.

It would be nice if they had an optional GUI geared more towards developers and so forth. I'd like to have easy access to a terminal window (not the shitty command console) and other important tools at my disposal like maybe "Putty" being built in to the OS. I dont need mom and pop widgets, I'd rather see widgets or tools for debugging, killing processes, validators, encryption, better wifi management, etc..


But its been pretty stable up until this point so I cant bitch too much

It's a discussion on technology.

All the technology people I know hate Vista, but they hate windows in general. Asking Micro$oft for a built in Linux interface is like asking Bill Gates to donate one of his kidneys to someone who needs it, I don't see it happening.

I have the suspicion that google may be developing an OS of its own. I read an article in eWeek last night where the author made an accurate comparison of how google in our present looks like Microsoft in the 90's when they had a stranglehold of market with anything related to hard ware and enterprise software.

Except the difference is that google has that dominance search, online advertising and cloud computing services. It would be interesting to see what kind of OS google could put together, because they do have it in their budget + the talent and interest for it to make some headway..

Even their so called "failed projects" have succeeded in some way. Their different than most companies for the reason that when something fails it wont negatively impact their quarterly revenue.

I don't doubt it. Google is sneaky. Did you try out their new browser? They have an Incognito mode, I forget what it's called, but its basically just browsing without saving cookies and keeping a history- the same options you can set in any browser, but they make it look like it's some new shit.

Right now I run XP and Fedora 8 on my home PC and XP and Fedora 2 at my work computers. I'm probably going to change the one at work to Ubuntu or somthing else. I haven't really had a chance to play with any other distros. I was gonna slap yellow dog on my PS3 but one of my teachers talked me out of it when he told me the risks of fucking up my PS3.
