Just some picks

  1. Minix: Yet Another Operating System. I switched to Linux two years ago, still not fully comfortable with it, but yet I am thinking about new horizons. I downloaded the live CD to give it a try.
  2. The Epoch. Now that is interesting: Unix Time or POSIX time started at January 1, 1970. I read about it in Linux Format. A Unix Timestamp and Converter Tool is the Epoch Converter, I copied and pasted this link @1235593849 UET

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
