DotBlock VPS Contest

DotBlock is giving away 1 full of access to a powerful VPS server!

If you aren’t familiar, DotBlock is a web hosting / VPS hosting company, that rents out virtual private servers for personal and professional use. I use them to power this website, and my Minecraft server.

Recently DotBlock announced a contest where you could win a full year of access to a 6-block virtual private server (a 1-block server has 3GB of RAM and a 3GHZ processor).

If you’d like a high powered Linux server to do your bidding for a year, or just need a more powerful host than GoDaddy for your website, then it’s worth a shot.

You can enter the contest here.

Ubuntu

Ambiance Modern For Cinnamon

I’ve been on a quest for the perfect Linux desktop. For a while I was using elementary OS, which boasted the smoothest and cleanest interface you could imagine on a Linux box. Sadly, it lacked the power and customization of other distros, so I switched back to the latest version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is great, but the Unity interface leaves a lot to be desired, so I switched to Cinnamon. The default Cinnamon theme didn’t fit well with the default Ubuntu theme (Ambiance), so I did a little tweaking. The end result is Ambiance Modern for Cinnamon.

Ambiance ModernAnd here’s what it looks like on my machine.

Chevy Cheyenne

So long story short, I didn’t sleep. Maybe about an hour total. I thought about going back to sleep at 6, but decided that if I just stayed up I might actually be able to break myself of my up-all-night, sleep-until-afternoon pattern that I’ve fallen into recently.

As part of an effort to stay awake, I decided to wander the back yard with my camera and take pictures. It was a good oppurtunity to take some new shots, and to get used to shooting in RAW, since I’m using Lightroom now.

Most of the pictures were boring, but a few of my Grandfather’s Chevy Cheyenne came out well enough I thought I’d post them. Enjoy.
