Update: Server from Ubuntu to Arch

Just an update.  The server migration from Ubuntu to Arch went well. The server is running great, the heat levels are low, can’t really hear the fans running now.  There are slight problems with NFS shares but that’s just a matter of some configuration change.  I’d do it whenever I need it next.
The server has [...]

Server from Ubuntu to Arch

I had been a happy customer of Ubuntu 8.04 server edition for quite some time.  It was stable, ran without problems, and got me as far as 130 days (power failure :() without requiring a restart, and that too on my old box which can hardly handle anything else.
But 8.04 was fading out (not being [...]

Perfect Editor?

It’s been a while since I last posted here.  There’s just been too much work lately and a toddler running around the house doesn’t really help either :).
Last time when I was here I was looking for the “Perfect Editor”.  Well, I guess there is no such thing as a “Perfect Editor”.  There is probably [...]

In search for the Perfect Editor

I have been programming exclusively on linux lately.  When I was on windows, like everyone else I used to use Visual Studio for all my development work.  I used to love it, but always used to wonder if there is anything more I can do to boost my productivity.
On linux, there are a whole bunch [...]

Sound.C – Drugs of Choice

So I finally took some time out today to do some cleanup on this track and level it up so that I could upload it. I had been working intermittently on this track for a while now and wanted to just push it out.
Its more of a euro-psy-progressive style, hope you like it. [...]

Linux router as a persistent VPN Client

I couldn’t think of a good title for this post :).
I work from home and I often have to connect to my workplace network.  I work from several different machines from within my home network and hate setting up VPN on each of these machines.
I recently setup a linux server/router at home.  To solve this [...]

DLink DIR 665 as an Access Point

I am in process of setting up my home network.  I just recently got a new computer and wanted to turn my older linux box into a router/firewall/server.  I have a DLink DIR 665 router which I use to connect my notebooks to the home network.
Now that I have a dedicated server with DHCP address assignment, [...]

Mac OS X Port Forwarding with Internet Connection Sharing

I have a very peculiar network setup at my home.  
I have my router plugged into my cable modem downstairs in my basement, where it is hooked up to my PC.  Our notebooks and my Mac Mini connect to the network using WiFi.  I use Internet Network Sharing on my Mac Mini to forward my [...] – Progressive Stream

This channel has been my favorite for a while now.  The station usually plays euro-progressive.  If you listen to it long enough though, you’d find that the station does play ambient/psy progressive and ambient/progressive house and hosts several amazing artists.  Give it a listen.
The radio station is also available in iTunes under the electronic genre.

Music Projects Giveaway

Starting with my next music project I will start giving away the logic pro projects I work on through my website.  Everyone will be able to download my projects and see how I made a particular track. I am expecting it to be a learning experience for me as well as any new composers who [...]
