I’ve been doing a bit of development and one of my latest requirements was ImageMagick. I’m a compile from source kinda guy. I feel that rather than using pre-built RPMs, it’s best to have something built for your needs. It’s the difference between walking into Macy’s and buying a suit off the rack versus going [...]

You can integrate Postgre versions 8.1 (default), 8.4, [...]
This might seem like a really simple concept, but please make backups of your content. In the past 2 weeks I’ve been encountered with issues regarding lack of backups. The first was due to hardware failure; not much you can do to avoid this. Even RAID arrays fail sometimes so don’t rely on the hardware. [...]

I bought a MacBook Air. The specs are as follows:
1.7GHz Intel Core i5
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
I paid ~950 for a Apple refurb.
I am not a Apple fanboy and have always sworn against them, primarily out of ignorance. So how did I get here? My trusty Lenovo [...]
After having hosted with HostMantis for some time (6 months), it’s about time for a review.
At this point I’ve utilized their Expert plan which I caught for a deal some time ago. It was such a good deal that while I was hunting for a domain name, I decided to [...]
