For far too long I’ve settled with Twitter’s website when I was using my desktop computer. This is because the universal social programs for linux (e.g. Gwibber and Pidgin) always looked sloppy and cluttered to me. I put effort into maintaining a certain chi on my desktop and I wanted something that matched my theme. Eventually, I opted for Tweet Deck, which had more features and a clean look but it required me to use the Chrome web browser and to have Chrome open in order to access Twitter. I prefer to use the open-source Firefox browser. Read more…
If you don’t know what Fedora is, it’s a flavor of the Linux operating system. My preferred flavor. Why? Well, that’s a whole new conversation there, but I’ll graze over the basics. Read more…
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.

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.
Politics Are Timeless
Some liberals claim an old document like the Constitution cannot be properly applied to the problems of today. Not true. The error with that train of thought is although new problems might arise that couldn’t possibly be foreseen 250 years ago, the foundation of all these problems is always derived from one constant: mankind – and mankind as a species has not changed. The faithful attempts of government to over reach their authority are as predictable as the sun rising in the morning. It has been this way since the first primitive form of political structure. It has never changed and it never will.
An easy way to prove this is to take quotes from popular statesman from a hundred years ago. Do they still apply? Of course they do. The wisdom of our founding fathers and other patriots could just as easily have been spoken today, but they were spoken hundreds of years ago. Man’s thirst for power and corruptibility doesn’t change. Neither does the U.S. Constitution. End of story.
