Easily, I can use two monitors; however, I would like to configure three monitors to work on my Linux system. I have searched around and at one point I think I even figured out how to do it. But that was awhile ago and I can’t seem to remember how to setup three monitors on a Linux system. If you happen to know how or know a page that has a tutorial on setting this up please post the information. In due time I will eventually figure it out and will post the solution.

I want to setup a few Debian webcam servers on my property for surveillance. I just dug out an older Gateway E-4200 500 Pentium III desktop tower from my attic. It’s been up there baking in the heat and freezing in the cold for 477 days. I discovered this after pulling the computer down from the attic and powering it up. Debian noted during startup that it had been 477 days since the hard drives were checked. After the scan, Debian 5 Lenny loaded right up. Amazing! (more…)
I have used Google Chrome as my default web browser since the beta release on September 2008. Three features I like most about the web browser is the clean and simple look, the merged address and search bar, and the multi-process architecture. At the time, Firefox couldn’t match these features, or even come close. I have used Google Chrome ever since. After using Google Chrome since 2008, I never once tested memory usage and compared the results with Firefox.
Today I decided to download and install Firefox for the first time since 2008. Things have changed a lot. The web browser has a very clean, open and simple look –just like Google Chrome. In fact, I actually think it looks more streamlined. Unfortunately, the address bar does not also serve as a search bar. I would have enjoyed seeing that. And lastly, Firefox has not upgraded to a multi-process architecture. Aside from this, I really do like the new Firefox look and I am going to immediately start using it again as my default web browser to fully test it. (more…)
I really wish Google and Apple would partner up and get Google Chrome for the iPhone developed. I am not sure which one I like better, my iPhone or Google Chrome. I do know that having the two joined would make my world practically perfect. The biggest issue I have is that I keep up a very extensive collection of bookmarks on Chrome. My bookmarks sync with any device with Chrome installed. I am able to access them once I’m logged in. I spend so much time on my iPhone and I’m never able to get access to my bookmarks because the iPhone has Safari installed. I can only hope that Google Chrome for the iPhone will get developed soon.
Here is a simple and quick reason why Mac OS X is better than any version of Microsoft Windows, current, future, or existing. I only have to reinstall Mac OS X once per year compared to having to reinstall Windows once per month.
