#108097 Ignorance is not bliss, it's annoying...

Posted by SmartDuck on 03 February 2018 - 11:52 PM

ylee; I don't trust suits either. I never wear a tie. (joke; why managers and ceo's are make so stupid discisions, because thier ties are so tied and cutoff the blood flow to thier brains.) But you have to have a kind of standard so all team members feel comfortible. In my company we have not a suits culture, only the ceo┬┤s and upper management in official meetings or when they visit customers or partners.

Like you said not all college students are like that. I can only speak of the netherlands It goes wrong at home and school, kids are more spoiled then in the 80's or 90's for example and college these days is crap. I've one junior in my software development team, he comes from the same college (MBO application development) as the boy friend of one of my doughters. Same stories from both, no teachers available for lessons half of the time, they have to solve projects completely alone. It's a mess. Today it is the good people in the business that helps these youngsters to grow in their career.

You can politely tell him that it is better for his career, just give him some hints, good advice in a positive way. May be it helps.

#107803 Database applications for Linux

Posted by SmartDuck on 06 January 2018 - 07:20 PM

CherryTree is nice to manage all kinds of collections.

$ sudo apt-get install cherrytree

 

For web I use MySQL with phpMyAdmin to manage the databases.

Sqliteman is a small manager to create SQLite databases.

#106675 So Far harvest season has been extremely good

Posted by SmartDuck on 14 September 2017 - 07:35 PM

Great to read you had a good harvest.

We had a good harvest too, not much, we have a small garden.

This year we have beets, parsnip, turnip, spinash, vigs, raspberries, strawberries, prunes, tomatoes (3 different kinds), courgette, cucumber and herbs: sage, oregano, mint (5 kinds), thyme, lemon balm etc...

Lots of peppers jalapegnos and habaneros, we make our own sambal and pica (habanero peppers with unions in vinegar).

And prune jam: http://www.smartduck...=view&id_post=5

#104824 New Lenovo Ideapad 110S notebook, old Dell laptop dying...

Posted by SmartDuck on 09 June 2017 - 07:12 PM

Never started the Windows 10 it came with (big privacy and security leak!). Booted straight into the BIOS (FN + F2), changed the settings to boot from USB, disabled all intel settings, rebooted, pressed F12 to boot from USB, repartioned and installed Bodhi. So far everthing works out of the box. I use full hd encryption and firewall.




#104816 New Lenovo Ideapad 110S notebook, old Dell laptop dying...

Posted by SmartDuck on 08 June 2017 - 08:56 PM

My old Dell E4300 is dying. The power supply and battery are shutting down sometimes.

 

So I bought a Lenovo Ideapad 110S-11IBR. You have to adjust the BIOS settings to boot to usb drive and disable some features as secure boot etc. Bodhi runs fine, snappy... typing this item on the Ideapad. For gaming this notebook is a no go and the harddisk is just 32GB something to consider. But for programming, light design work and video editing, browsing, playing minetest or Wesnoth it is fast enough.

#104634 Bodhi Linux introduced in my company

Posted by SmartDuck on 31 May 2017 - 04:49 PM

I work for a company that builds and monitors installations for water transport and refinement.

The IT company that manages our network wanted to throw away 6 MSI systems (1GB memory, Atom 230 processor) we use to give courses in our telemetry software, to old for a update to Windows 10. I've persuade my manager and installed Bodhi! My colleages where suprised :)
