Ubuntu : I'm linux bound

Filed under

I finally got Ubuntu installed. I had downloaded Ubuntu three or four times from the generic site and burnt 6 CDs of the resulting stuff but each time my computer said the CDs were corrupt and aborted the installation.

So I sent away for the free CD and today I got my own version of Linux for human beings: Ubuntu -- did I say it was free!Postage, CD & handling: free. And it was so easy to install! So my old computer sitting here to my right is now Ubuntu driven. I didn't have a pay out a brass razoo.(Did I tell you it was free?)

So I thought I'd share my first impressions:

The first offer is a video interview with Nelson Mandela about the concept and ideology of ubuntu. This of course means that video is up and running from the word go and after taking in an audio sample -- so too is video already just right.

You just click on stuff -- programs -- and they automatically install -- like the extensions do on FireFox. So I got Gimp, Totem movie player, some layout programs, Open Office...etc. Nice package of tools.

Full Post.

Introducing DNS66, a host blocker for Android

I’m proud (yes, really) to announce DNS66, my host/ad blocker for Android 5.0 and newer. It’s been around since last Thursday on F-Droid, but it never really got a formal announcement. DNS66 creates a local VPN service on your Android device, and diverts all DNS traffic to it, possibly adding new DNS servers you can configure in its UI. It can use hosts files for blocking whole sets of hosts or you can just give it a domain name to block (or multiple hosts files/hosts). You can also whitelist individual hosts or entire files by adding them to the end of the list. When a host name is looked up, the query goes to the VPN which looks at the packet and responds with NXDOMAIN (non-existing domain) for hosts that are blocked. Read more
