this is a problem I’ve seen twice on users using Outlook 2007. when an email gets open and they try to edit the email, the cursor does not work. normally closing and reopening Outlook fixes the problem, but if that’s not an option for you do this while the email editor is open.
One of the things that made me stick up with Ubuntu for awhile was its prettiness, but I got tired of dealing with all the bugs, so I switched to Debian Wheezy which as of today May 5th 2013 is the new stable release. so far Debian Wheezy has been pretty stable, the only thing I don’t like are the fonts, luckily porting the fonts from Ubuntu to Debian is not that hard. here is how.
Google, you are screwing us up by taking Google Reader away!
I use Google Reader every day ( more than a dozen times ) to keep up with the news and tech stuff happening every day.. how else can I control such chaos? I use it on my Android phone, and on my Ubuntu computer through LightRead and on the web. there is no competitive out of there, I know people say there is but that’s not true… as of now, there is no true replacement for Google Reader. I know Digg devs say they are building one, but who knows when that’s gonna be ready, and how is gonna be???
I like Fedora for its stability and its native Gnome3 support, but one of the reasons why I went back to Ubuntu a few times was because of Gnome3 bland look. Ubuntu is aesthetically pleasant, the fonts, colors, and icons are perfect, unfortunately Ubuntu has never perform to the same level as Fedora for me, so now I use Fedora indefinitely. I themed up Fedora a little bit to make it look a little lively. this is how Nautilus looks on Fedora now:
Are you trying to install Microsoft Office on Fedora, OpenSUSE, Mint or Ubuntu? I have tried and I have succeeded in installing Office 2010 in Ubuntu, but its unstable, especially Outlook, which was my whole motivation for running office in Ubuntu. the best option you have for running office while using Linux as your primary OS is using VirtualBox to run Windows and install office on it. you can find a free image of Windows XP on the Internet – Windows XP still kick ass.
If you need to monitor your network and don’t have the money to afford a commercial network monitoring system like SolarWinds or Big Brother then you should look into Nagios. Nagios Core is fully open source and free ( free as a beer, and free as freedom) and when implemented the right way and with the right plugins is a full blown network monitoring system perhaps even better than those mentioned above. I looked into Zenoss Core, and Cacti before I settled with Nagios. after a month or so of having Nagios running in production, I think I made the right decision.
I like quota, I think it’s a very nice looking QA site with good content, I just don’t like their marketing ( or whatever this is ) approach. whenever I type an question on my phone using Google and quora is one of the results, I get this:
