Let’s move on

Hi all,

you may wonder why there has not been any news in the last week. Well … I have been busy in two fronts.

First I wasted the first half of the week with an old bad habit I got from from Microsoft Windows, even if I have been using Linux for a year now: clean re-install; I was having some slowdown with the Internet applications, especially Firefox, and World of Warcraft under Wine kept freezing my PC very often; so, instead of taking advantage of the wide configurability of Linux, that is very useful even when there are problems to fix, I decided to take the quick and dirty way to do a tabula rasa and re-install everything from scratch. So far everything is going very well (even if I did not had the time to stress-test WoW to check if it is working well as usual).

After this boring part I spent the second half of the week in a particular project: despite the promise to my self to wait and plan for this, I have impulsively opened a new site for this blog!!! It is now called “Silicon Gadget” and its address is: http://www.silicongadget.com/.

As you can see the overall look is identical to this blog, but I have indeed made some changes.

For example, and it is the aspect that took the most of the time, I re-organized a little bit the categories and the tags; this work has been necessary since I decided to change the URL format from the date-based system used here by WordPress.com to the category-based system I am using there.

The second change, that you cannot see since it is beyond the scenes, is that I activated several plugins that will help me to better manage the blog structure.

There is a very important thing you have to take in mind: if you subscribed to the RSS feed of this blog, either with a RSS reader or via e-mail, you have to unsubscribe from those and subscribe back with the similar links you find on the new site.

From tomorrow I will start to write exclusively on the new blog, but this blog will still stay open as archive and backup.

I want to thank both the WordPress.com staff and the forum’s members for all the help I received for this blog.

See you at the Silicon Gadget!!! 🙂

    If WoW on Wine is hanging your system, you have a kernel bug,
    probably a conflict between your video drivers and your kernel.
    A fresh install of the nvidia drivers you’re probably using
    usually solves the problem.

    In other words, it’s not Wine’s fault, it’s not WoW’s fault, it’s
    the poor integration of Nvidia’s proprietary driver with the Linux
    update system.
