Ubuntu edge revealed – and it’s epic!

Ubuntu edge revealed – and it’s epic!

A couple of days ago I wrote an article about the leaked “Ubuntu Edge” images that were accidentally found on one of the Ubuntu web servers. In that article I wrote about how I wasn’t sure if this was a clever PR stunt by Canonical, or if this was for real. Well my fellow RefuGeeks, it turns out that this is completely legit, and very exiting! Crowd Funding So the guys over a... »

Roll Your Own Web Apps To Avoid Privacy Issues

Roll Your Own Web Apps To Avoid Privacy Issues

A few weeks ago I wrote and article over on my personal blog about how I was thinking about moving everything “in-house”. Whilst that article has more of an emphasis on email (which I’m still not sure about moving yet by the way, so I’m interested to hear your thoughts…), I’ve also been applying the same principles to other parts of my online “life”... »

Everyone knows that the Internet isn’t short on information about starting your first WordPress endeavour. When I first started with WordPress around 2 years ago, I Googled, and Googled, and Googled until I had all the information I needed to take my first steps into the wonderful world of WordPress, so to save you the trouble I thought I’d write this guide.

Fedora Day Three: Getting To Know Gnome-Shell

So I’m now on day three of my mini adventure with Fedora 18, and I have to say, the more I use Gnome-Shell (and Fedora) the more I’m really enjoying myself. Now that I’ve got the base OS installed, and it’s personalised to my liking, it’s time to start playing around with Gnome-Shell to see what it has to offer… What I like I think one of the biggest draws of G... »

Fedora Day Two: Customisation

Fedora Day Two: Customisation

So now I’ve got my Fedora 18 machine all up and running from Day One, and I’m now ready to get some work done, and oh what a busy day it’s been. As I mentioned yesterday, the default look of Fedora leaves a lot to be desired, so I’ve been busy working away to get my OS looking and running how I like it. Installing software I used a number of sources to get my software loade... »

Fedora Day One: Installation

Fedora Day One: Installation

So far my first day with Fedora 18 has been quite a pleasant experience. However, I’ve been doing nothing but installing and configuring the OS instead of actually doing any real work. So far I have all my data moved over, some applications installed, and some basic tweaks to the system. Installation Overall I found the installation of Fedorato be fairly straightforward, however I did find t... »

A week with Fedora

A week with Fedora

I’m a huge fan of trying new things and expanding my knowledge. That’s how I first got started in Linux as I was bored of Windows and wanted to learn something new. My current OS is Elementary Luna, but it occurred to me the other day that since I’ve been apart of this amazing community, I’ve only ever used Ubuntu derivatives. This is because Ubuntu is the first name that m... »
