Hey people, back after a year of absence -.-‘ …. sorry about that…. Uni started….. visa problems…… exam issues blah blah blah blah blah….

Anyways……. Lets get started!  Sharing files between Windows and Linux! This for the amateur IT guy/girl can seem a daunting task, specially given the fact of about different partitioning methods, different file systems etc..

Trust me, there’s no shame in admitting that you just couldn’t find a way to make Windows and Linux play nice with each other over the network.. BUT! when you seriously look at it, it’s no that big of a problem..The main cause behind all this mayhem is rather simple…  We’ll call it the “language”. You see, windows computers talk to each other in a different language for file sharing and linux computer’s talk in a different language.  Dont worry though, all is not lost, you see, linux box’s have a secret trick up their sleeves, if you ask a linux box really nicely, they’ll learn how to speak in WINDOWS!

Ok ok, all the crappy synonyms aside, all you really need for file sharing between linux boxes and window’s boxes is a software called “samba”, and no, it’s not something like VLC where you have to install programs on both ends. Samba is actually a “daemon”, daemons are like windows background services, what it does is, it acts kinda like a interpreter in between the 2 machines ( i think lol ! ).

Ok , lets get to work!

Are you a sadist when it comes to gaming? Want to beat, chew up and spit out games like they were chewing gum? Well you can now do just that!  With the New Nvidia GTX 295! 🙂

Payback Time

After Nvidia’s GT200 based cards were kicked out of it’s throne at the top spot of Graphics Cards Kingdom, by ATI’s Radeon HD 4870 X2 Nvidia couldn’t just stand around! I mean the GT 200 was Nvidia’s pride and joy!

Squashed Up Goo

The Normal rout that most Graphics card makers take these days to take a great existing card and make it awesome was to take two of them  and paste them together for SLi (Nvidia) or CrossFire (ATI) configuration.

The Main problem that Nvidia faced till now was that their GT200 processors were so powerful, that putting two of them together would cause a total melt down.

New Ways to “DIE”

So Nvidia’s answer to this dilemma was new Die-process that reduced their processors from 65mm to 55mm. This helped to greatly reduce heat and power consumption.

So the GTX 295 was born! Pasting together, 2 X GT200 cards in one. So when in SLi mode, it’ll be a quad.

Ok Sabayon Linux? Never Heard of it? If so you probably havent been On-Line and updated recently enough. Sabayon Linux a New Gentoo variation ( I think), is a new kid on the block making quite a stirr in the Linux World. While Ubuntu and Other Distro are made to be used by Everybody, I see that Sabayon is mainly marketing on Younger Users ho are Hardcore Graphics enthusiast.  Also this Distro Is also geat for recent Windows migrants because alot of the coolest new fetures and what i like to call Vista-Killing Apps are Pre – Loaded in this Distro.
