Deadbeat Guitarist Mugcast #11 – Testing Debian and the pain of a windows box lessened.

 

LINUX:
Debian Stable vs Debian Testing Blog post

WordPress – and the Jetpack Plugin pack – is the special goodness.

Getting comfortable on Windows by bringing the Gnu/Linux feel

  1. Gnuwin32 tools (tar, diff, ls, du, df, grep etc).
  2. A proper terminal – brings the coolness of transparency , tabs etc… checkout the console project.  ctrl-f1 creates a tab, ctrl-1,ctrl-2 switches to it.
  3. Multiple Desktop – I really miss this under Windows and you can get them by installing VirtuaWin – ctrl-alt-left arrow or right arrow or up or down switches to that virtual desktop,  alt-windowkey left arrow or right arrow or up or down arrow moves a window from 1 virtual desktop to the one you specifcy with arrow key.

MUSIC:

Check out – Andy Rehfeldt on his personal site or his youtube channel:  Andy takes popular songs, builds around the original vocal only and re-tracks all the instruments either jazz, metal or funk and hilarity ensues.

BEER:
Dougie Dog Butterscotch Rootbeer – Tasty indeed.
