Online Linux Live CD/DVD/USB Building Systems and Online Storage

As usual and also typical me, I am kind of a late adopter of new technology. Any kind of it, you just name it. Sometimes I feel myself old-fashioned and people see me as an old person. I don’t mind with that as long as I am happy in using the technology I am familiar with. I have my own assumption though, the newer is not always the better. 🙂 But, recently new development in Linux world has teased me to try something new. In this case I would like to let you know the existence of SUSE Studio. By … Continue reading Online Linux Live CD/DVD/USB Building Systems and Online Storage

It is due to some changes I made during the last days regarding which packages should be included on SLAMPP.

You may disagree with this, but I hope it is not going to discourage you trying out SLAMPP when it is released. Some … Continue reading Progress on SLAMPP 2.0

Open Source and Drilling Activities?

Yesterday I was triggered by a friend’s question whether it is possible to use or adopt open source application in drilling activities. In spite of the fact that most (perhaps all) of drilling softwares are Windows based and proprietary ones, but I see the potential possibilities. Do you agree with that? This question is surely kind of waking me up and making my eyes wide open to explore more. In conjunction with this, I would like to ask your favor. Is there someone out there who has working case studies or experience and minds to sharing those with me? Hopefully … Continue reading Open Source and Drilling Activities?
