Got a new programing project on github: YstSimRB Please provide positive criticism. No negative, please.

Orion’s Arm

Orion’s Arm is a massive universe created by┬ávolunteers, based on science. It has a detailed history, and has some pretty cool tech. Not many people know about this site, so I wanted to post the link here. Thats all!

the BOFH

The BOFH stands for something I am not able to print. Suffice to sa that there are 2 different swearwords in the title. It is located here. I think you need to read it. There are a lot of them though.

Switching to the zsh SHell

As you know, I have a laptop running Ubuntu 8.10. A while ago, I installed the shell, zsh. I had first heard of zsh from the live CD distro, SystemRescueCd. It used a nice installation of zsh, and I wanted to use it on my Ubuntu machine. I installed zsh, and went through the configuration. I must have done something wrong, because the zsh that started the next time I started zsh looked nothing like the zsh that I saw on the live CD. I abandoned the project for some time, until I thought of an answer. I would start SystemRescueCD, copy the zsh config files to a pendrive, copy the config files from the pendrive to the Ubuntu laptop, place them in the correct spot, and hope. It worked perfectly. I now have a working version of zsh, and it has become my shell of choice! It’s power, flexability, coloring, and command auto- correction has made me a fan of zsh. I love it!. It’s so fun! -Indigo
