  1. Never knew setting up an ftp server is that easy and now I can backup and access my data from anywhere in the world :)

      Was about to have a security panic with 'FTP' and 'access my data from anywhere', but then I read your thread that you had set it up with SSL. Panic over! :P

      I think I actually overlooked something so don't have it setup fully on ssl. I use https://feedmebits.nl to connect to and I use sftp/ssh in my ftp client to connect. But wouldn't I need a seperate certificate? ah I think not right? cuz I remember dave saying, ssl is setup on ip. so if I have https://feedmebits.nl setup as ssl that would also go for my ftp? right?

      looking into that now...

      Got an idea though. Can't you make it that new members statusses have to get approved by a mod or that you can't update your status until you have at least 10 posts? Most spammers don't post more then 3 times. And usually before They are caught before being able to make a second post.

      Something is being considered. Stand by!

      I haven't come across Fortune App yet. I'm running Mint 12.

    3. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      edit the menu with "alacarte". It's installed by default with 10, but seems to be missing from 12.

      The fortune can be removed from /etc/bash.bashrc - I've disabled it!

      btw Dave. Do NOT install and activate compiz on mint 12. gnome3 is not compatible with compiz. I found it in a post somewhere, but it was too late. Been search all over for a way to undo it.But had no luck.

  4. Help me think of ideas for server names

    1. hybrid

      I like to have a theme -- I've had a space theme, a Greek mythology theme. With a theme you can have cool names, but have a sense of 'family' when you have multiple hostnames.

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Yeah I've been trying to think of a theme but haven't been able to think of one that I like and have lots of options with.

    3. inittux

      inittux

      Thanks. Have my theme :)

  5. Thinking of maybe cancelling my BF3 pre-order and not game at all anymore cuz it distracts me from learning

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      There are quite a number of games freely included with most distros - feel free to use those for a welcome distraction!

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Yeah I know :) but I'm actually still dualbooting cuz bc2 and bf3 only run under windows. Just thinking of maybe quitting with gaming. And just play simple games every now and then under linux to relax when needing a break from learning.

  6. I really appreciate this forum and it makes me want to learn more. You guys are awesome!! :)

  7. Apologies that I've been kind of inactief lately. The winter has kind of been getting to me and I haven't had as much energy lately.

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      It can take it out of you. Try a stroll out into the daylight - sometimes that perks you up a bit.

    2. inittux

      Actually good idea for the weekends. During the week I don't have much of a choice.

  8. Thinking of ditching my google account. I don't like their new privacy policy

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      Do spill (preferably in General Chat) - in case it affects others. May be useful to those that have some Google accounts linked to Linux desktop apps.

  9. Linux is getting more addictive the more I work/play with it. My file server is running. so far so good. May decide to buy some new hardware to have a bit more power and speed.

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      The first one's free....

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Aye :) Putting together my new server this evening :)

  10. Planned out my whole webserver, FTP server is next :)

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      Planning makes perfect...

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Planning also makes you understand things better cuz you think it makes you think it over and over again.

  11. Recovered my root password and my user admin rights. That's a mistake I'll never make again, but I did learn something useful :)

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      Trust me, you'll do it a few more times yet! At least then you'll know what to do.

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Yeah I take your word on that one. The more I do it the easier it'll be for me to remember how to reset the root password.

  12. wow wordpress is pretty nice, now have to figure out how to work with it

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      I've got Hybrid's notes if it helps. I ought to write them up really!

    2. inittux

      Nah it's ok. I decided to stick to stick Joomla for now. I just feel more comfortable working with joomla. I may try again another time with WP.

       

  13. Still learning to look at Linux as a project rather than just something to quickly do. Without planning your project you are destined to fail :P

    1. Dungeon-Dave

      Dungeon-Dave

      Wise words, indeed. Much you learn, young administrator!

    2. inittux

      inittux

      Thanks mate :) I still got a lot to learn though, but my excitement for Linux hasn't changed :)

  14. Had a great birthday. Lots of cake and lots of food and lots wine :) Looking foward to this coming year :)

  15. Got another service installed/configured/running on my server. Now up to the next one
