workswithu.com: Last spring, the world changed forever when VirtualBox implemented support for 3D acceleration in Windows and Linux guests. I have a tendency to be behind the curve on world-changing events, so I didn’t found time to play with this new feature until a few days ago. But what I found made me really happy.
rockyhillside.net: My list of Ubuntu Karmic papercuts (okay some are big and most are application specific so they're not strictly "papercuts" - that could be easily fixed or were once working.):
limulus.wordpress: Mozilla needs to make an official repository for Ubuntu. It can support Debian and all the other DEB-based systems too (that would be awesome), but it NEEDS to be primarily aimed at Ubuntu.
This tutorial shows how to do data striping across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 9.10) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 9.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

FreeNX is an open source implementation of NoMachine's NX Server. It is a bit more akin to Microsoft's RDP protocol than the usual VNC, so while keeping bandwidth to a minimum, it maintains good visual quality and responsiveness.

doctormo.wordpress: Last week, I posted in the forums. In the week that has passed, I have gotten only a single response from someone who genuinely wants to help, but cannot because he or she is not an advanced user. Once you have advanced beyond the status of a new, inexperienced user you are truly on your own.
thelinuxblog.com: Irritated with my Desktop after an upgrade gone bad and an incident with the nvidia noveau driver that left me x less, I decided it was time to re-install. I turned to my bookshelf to find Ubuntu Unleashed 2010 Edition.
