Server Migration

Due to a whole range of problems and issues surrounding updating from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS, I’m in the process of migrating to a new Linode that I’ve set up.  This site will be going up and down over the next few hours, and will also probably be throwing out some SSL certificate errors as I get everything moved over and troubleshoot.

Fedora 25 Post-Install Guide: Thinkpad X1 Carbon (2015)

I know I’ve been laid up for a little while, and I know that Fedora 25 has been out for a few weeks, but here’s my updated guide for installing and configuring Fedora 25 on the Thinkpad X1 Carbon (2015).  Not much has changed, in fact it becomes a little easier every release…more and more of the hardware is supported by the kernel by default, and Gnome is getting better with every release at dealing with HIDPI displays.  (Of course, you can ignore the HIDPI stuff if you got the model with the 1080p display.)  I still have the same issue with the fingerprint sensor – but it’s a minor issue.  It lights up any time the computer asks for a password (including in the terminal) and doesn’t turn off – even after you type in your password – until you run your finger across it.  Again, minor issue.

Not much has changed since I wrote the last one, so a lot of this is largely copied and pasted from my last guide. Continue reading Fedora 25 Post-Install Guide: Thinkpad X1 Carbon (2015)


Well, it’s been a long time…almost 6 months…since I’ve posted.  That’s quite a hiatus.  A lot has gone on.  Fedora 25 is out, I have a new job, I’ve cooked a lot, and I’ve been in a car accident.

My old job involved my having a ton of spare time – plus my website wasn’t blocked at work.  That means I could cook something or mess with a computer at home, and I could just go to work the next day and write up an article.  Not so anymore.

But, now I’m working from home for a while – since I got in the accident – so I have some time where I can update.  I plan to add more later, I have some frozen meal reviews to write, for instance.

But for now, I’ll just leave you with a picture of my knee.
