DOSBox, a x86 emulator with DOS

Ok, it’s not specifically Linux related, as this DOS emulator has been ported to Windows, BeOS, MacOS X as well as Linux, but I’m excited about it because I may be able to play Syndicate again! I couldn’t even get that DOS game to work in Windows 98 AFAIR. I had more luck running it in Dosemu, but without sound support unfortunately.
Dosbox is available on apt-rpm too, which is where I stumbled across it.

Sore hands? Take a break..

Simon discovered Work Rave recently. It’s a program similar to Xwrits which I have running on my X desktop. It forces you to take a break every so often and hopefully let your hands rest. I’ve used Xwrits for a long time now, and it’s one of those apps I wouldn’t be without.

Roches Point at Night

I travelled down to Church Bay yesterday as night fell. I was hoping to get some nice long-exposure shots of the lapping water. Long exposures cause the water to take on a ghost-like quality I’ve seen in other photographs. Unfortunately, I need more practise!

Ss Peter and Paul’s Church, Off Patrick’s Street.

Every Sunday morning at 10am mass is said as Gaeilge here. It’s a beautiful building and these photos are part of an assignment for a leaflet on the church.

IPTables Firewall Tutorial

Ronan Kirby posted a lengthy, but excellent tutorial on Linux IPTables to the CLUG this morning.
He goes through the commands needed to create a simple firewall for a gateway or client machine and explains each stage well.

2006-10-11 – Ronan’s post has moved here somehow.
