New Server – New Fun!

This is the amazing “new” server that this blog is hosted on. Using a dynamic DNS service and Ubuntu on a 9 year-old MacBook, I have taken control of my blog again, trying to revive it from the untouched archive it has been for the last few years.
[Oh, and if you have arrived here from a Newest Industry link, don’t panic. Just search for the article you want – they’re all here.]

I’ve just recently changed companies (through an acquisition), so I will have new web performance items to hook into as I get a chance to work with new customers.
All raise your glass – PerformanceZen is back.

Coming to you from Ubuntu

Ok, this is the first post from the new Ubuntu-powered work laptop. I partitioned the drive and installed the OS and the only hiccups have been with Evolution, which I think I have beaten into the ground.

Even the ndiswrapper hack worked perfectly for my wireless card. Nice! This has come a long way since the last time I had an installed linux as my desktop.

I like the Gnome interface (I know that will get me flamed), but it is good to be back on the old standby. I am still in dual-boot land, as there is at least one app that I absolutely cannot use from Linux.

Now, if this wasn’t a work laptop, I would be really happy…but no one has volunteered a GrabPERF development laptop for me to use, so Dell Hell it is.

I will continue to post my experiences as I use this more.
