A few months ago I got the idea to try out Arch Linux. I had heard so much about it, and still do. My experience was a complete nightmare. Took forever to get installed, then once installed, I had no sound, the system was unresponsive and clunky and just didn’t work.
So now I decided to give Arch a retry by proxy. Manjaro Linux, based on Arch, looked exciting and promised to take most of the headaches out of an arch install.
Manjaro delivers on its promises. Easy install, hardware worked out of the box, but just not my cup of tea. I still fail to see what is so exceptional about Arch Linux.
So I’ve taken this opportunity to download Fedora 20 Alpha and test it out. We’ll see, but either way once again I return to my beloved Fedora.
What a nightmare. After hosting with Yahoo for over 10 years it was time for a change. I transferred my domain to HostGator, they have a much better setup and Yahoo’s service had given me some problems. The worst being that Yahoo’s tech support said they were escalating and issue with their server and it would be resolved shortly – that was 2 years ago. Everything about the transfer seemed to go smoothly but 2 weeks later Yahoo still hadn’t release my domain to HostGator. What a sorry excuse for a company. No wonder Yahoo is going under.
I’m also doing some computer upgrades. I do most of my work at the office so I’ve neglected my home PC. It had a 5 year old version of Suse Linux, so old it can’t even download updates and software. So I ‘m working on updating it to an recent version of Ubuntu.
“Out with the old, in with the new” as they say.
Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans! Remember today isn’t just another day off of work. It has important meaning that should be honored and treasured.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
