Line 1: Line 1:
 +My Windows XP professional workstation.
  
 +A dell Latitude, P4 1800, 512MB Ram, 30GB HDD, 1400x1040 display.
 +
 +I'm using [[http://​www.aboutmyip.com/​AboutMyXApp/​DeltaCopy.jsp|Deltacopy]] to back it up frequently to my [[NSLU2]]
 +
 +Plan:
 +  - Maybe add an '​usb-id read and then run a program with some parameters'​-tool.
 +    * Whoo, could WMI be my friend in this?
 +
 +====== Ubuntu Linux ======
 +I've installed Ubuntu Linux on a spare harddrive in this box, works quite nice!
 +Firefox, Thunderbird.
 +
 +Using InnoTek VirtualBox for hardware virtualization and Microsoft Windows XP.
 +
 +[[https://​launchpad.net/​ubuntu/​+source/​linux-source-2.6.15/​+bug/​39315|Annoying bug]] that caused the keyboard to respond '​weird'​ under load, fix for now is to killall gnome-power-manager.
 +
 +Installing Bluetooth, gnome-bluetooth?​
 +[[http://​www.williambrownstreet.net/​wordpress/?​p=27|Bluetooth howto]]
 +
 +Installed Dutch tax support software, there is a native Linux version!
 +
 +Wifi just works(tm)
 +
 +WMV (and other nonstandard formats) playing through [[http://​ubuntuguide.org/​wiki/​Ubuntu_Edgy|ubuntuguide]].
 +
 +Installed ip forwarding to provide network for another machine using: [[http://​www.howtoforge.com/​nat_iptables|this howto]].
 +
 +Had a [[https://​bugs.launchpad.net/​ubuntu/​edgy/​+source/​xorg-server/​+bug/​61746|bug]] where Xorg crashed when closing the lid of my laptop. Solved by upgrading to 7.04.
 +
 +== Torrents ==
 +  - Azureus is a memory hog but it works for my torrent needs... Need to find a replacement like uTorrent for Windows!
 +  - Ktorrent is doing it, it's Kde and not Gnome but even with that overhead it's small compared to Azureus.
 +
 +== Sync phone, contacts etc... ==
 +  - Multisync shows promises! I like it already and it doesn'​t even work yet!
 +
 +====== Windows Wireless ======
 +Using [[http://​www.intel.com/​support/​wireless/​wlan/​sb/​cs-010623.htm|Intel]] wireless drives, not the Dell ones.
