hpr1567 :: Multiboot Partitioning with Linux

Released on 2014-08-05 under a CC-BY-SA license.

I like to distro-hop some and try out new things. Sometimes, I want to have 2 or more Linux distros on my system at the same time so I can compare and contrast them. Initially I used a separate /home and mounted it to each distro on my system. This led to config file corruption and I needed a new approach. I hope this will help somebody! Thanks. ~Matt aka @sahg33kdad

hpr1359 :: Pipes

Released on 2013-10-17 under a CC-BY-SA license.

In this episode I take a look at a "low-tech" pasttime. In the spirit of the campfire episode and the bread baking episode, I give a simple episode about filling and smoking a pipe (tobacco, not 420!).


hpr1333 :: Introduction / How I Got Into Linux

Released on 2013-09-11 under a CC-BY-SA license.
