Tesla’s cheapest Model X is priced at $80,000

November 25th, 2015, posted in Uncategorized


If you don’t mind waiting on delivery, the Tesla Model X is now on sale to the public. Like the Model S before it, there’s three different versions to choose, but the 70D starts at $80,000 – before incentives like federal (and possibly state) tax credits. The 70D has an estimated range of 355 kilometers and a top speed of 225 km/h, while the 90D runs to 413 kilometers, with a 250 km/h top speed. The P90D (the first Model X that’ll arrive in early 2016), reduces the range to 400 kilometers, but will hit 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (or 3.2 if you’re feeling Ludicrous). While we don’t have the pricing on all the models, Tesla has shared some of the configuration prices. They’re all outlined after the break, but regardless if you make it your own, expect the cheaper 90D and 70D models to land mid- and late 2016.

How to mount NFS exports on Windows

March 7th, 2015, posted in Linux, Windows


UNIX and Linux users have long been accustomed to networking over NFS, or Network File System. It’s been around for a quarter of a century, was made popular by SunOS, and if you can stomach it’s myriad security flaws, it’s always been the quickest, dirtiest way to share files between disparate systems. Since Windows 7, Microsoft has deemed it necessary to provide proper NFS client support (and requisite MMC snap-in) to consumer Windows.

Don’t Want To Pay For Red Hat Linux? Try CentOS Instead

July 27th, 2013, posted in Linux

When a normal desktop user takes a look at different Linux distributions to use, they’d tend to think of various desktop-friendly distributions such as Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE. But a major reason why Linux is so popular in the computing world is because of its use on enterprise computers and servers.
In case you don’t know already, most of the web is powered by Linux — Facebook, Twitter, Google, and a vast majority of other major Internet sites use Linux for their servers. While server administrators can choose between multiple distributions for their enterprise or server setups, the primary leader of these distributions is Red Hat; however, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL for short, costs a lot of money in support fees. If RHEL interests you but money is an issue, then it’s almost a given to try CentOS.

What Is Bitrate & Why Is It Important?

March 15th, 2013, posted in Hardware, Internet


With today’s technology, we can expect high amounts of speed and quality with everything that we do on our computers, our smartphones, and any other recent gadgets.
However, while this increase in speed and quality has a number of factors, a lot of it relates to something called bitrate.
What bitrate means depends on the context in which you use it, but it’s very important to know what it is, and what benefits it could potentially bring you (or what you should instead be expecting).


Setup a Development Web Server for PHP, MySQL and Ruby on Rails

November 24th, 2012, posted in Linux

In this blog post you’ll learn how to turn that old computer you have lying around into a full-featured test bed for your websites. We’ll set up a typical LAMP server with Ubuntu Server 12.10 using Apache 2, PHP 5 and MySQL 5.5, and add in support for your Ruby on Rails 3 apps!

Get the latest version of Ubuntu Server (12.10 at time of writing) and burn it to a disk (or mount it in your VM software if you’re running a Virtual Machine).

Start up from disk, select your language then “Install Ubuntu Server“. Continue through the pages following the on-screen instructions. Enter a host name for your server when prompted. Something like web-server will do, and continue through partitioning your disk for install.

When asked, enter your full name, then a username. Make sure you enter a strong password. When asked to specify what software packages to install just press enter without selecting any packages.

We could have selected LAMP Server and OpenSSH Server which would install Apache, MySQL, PHP, OpenSSH and a few related dependencies automatically, but we’re going to do it manually to learn how it’s done.

When asked, ensure the installation disk has been ejected and restart to boot up Ubuntu.

You should be presented with a black screen and a login prompt. Enter your username and password when asked. When you type your password, you won’t see asterix’s or anything appear on screen to signify you typing, this is normal. Just enter your password and hit enter to log in.

You may have been expecting some sort of GUI interface, but as we installed the Server version of Ubuntu you get a command line instead :) A GUI just takes up unnecessary resources on a server –the shell is more than enough!
