On my Fedora 17 Linux box the other day I reverted my 64bit Nvidia Graphics Card Drivers back to the default Nouveau Drivers for testing. After I did the testing I reinstalled the Nvidia Graphics Card Drivers. Unfortunately, the removal of the 64bit Nvidia Drivers also removed the 32bit Nvidia Graphics Card Drivers. It took me a few google searches to find the correct library to install to rectify this issue.

The other night I was chatting with a friend and I just randomly typed ‘g<3gle’, as to say ‘google love’. It was very catchy, no idea if it has been used before. I decided to make a wallpaper, just for fun.
I ended up making 4 versions to start with. Using a vector version of the google logo I proceeded to move both of the o’s in google to a new layer, to help with alignment later on. Ten just using the text tool I added in the ‘<3’ as the heart, using the same colours as the original google logo. Very, very simple.
I just recently found this nifty little Linux package called ‘Conky’. It’s a great way to monitor all sorts of things in Fedora 17 Linux. Most of the install guides and downloadable configurations are aimed at Ubuntu Linux, so I decided to write up this post to help anyone that stumbles along the same path as myself.
When I reformatted and installed Fedora 17 Linux, I needed a way to randomly change my background wallpaper. After about 30 minutes of google’ing, I could not locate any simple fedora 17 packages or pre-made extensions for GNOME 3. With the help from pender and kolo from this forum post I was able to get a stable script running. Below you can find the script and how to implement it into a working GNOME 3 desktop.
Last week I was having a nightmare with StarCraft II v1.5.2: Network DEsync Issues. To try and fix this I did a lot of drastic file removals. After this many windows programs were slightly disabled (If they weren’t already that way to begin with). I decided to do a complete reformat of my C drive and start from scratch again. It had been almost 3 years since I last reformatted so it was well overdue.
One of my mates has been urging me to migrate across to Fedora Linux. Being a hardcore gamer I was very sceptical at first, as I still needed to be able to play almost all windows games as they are released. He later informed about PlayOnLinux which makes the entire Wine configuration a breeze. With that knowledge I decided to give Fedora 17 a try.
Oh, BTW, after installing Fedora 17 Linux and PlayOnLinux. I then installed StarCraft II, 8GB download later I could login and attempt a Co-Operative game. You know what? It worked perfectly. So that fixed all my preivous DEsync issues. lol.
The other week my girlfriend showed me this rather cool Doctor Who Wallpaper. The Tardis is sitting on the default Windows XP Wallpaper, the rolling green hill. When I went hunting around for a copy of the Windows Hills Dr Who Wallpaper I was very shocked to find the resolution way to low and the quality was quite poor. This calls for a complete remake of the wallpaper. So here it is, I hope you enjoy it.
After the latest StarCraft II patch (v1.5.2), I have been having a major issue with Blizzard’s StarCraft II. Every time I attempt to create a new network cooperative or network versus game, after the loading screen, I return to the StarCraft II main menu screen. Which is getting more and more frustrating as days go by.

While working at Litho Art Pty Ltd, I was given a brand new website to develop. This Code Igniter written website is a basic cover page for an online print to eBook/eMagazine service. The basic idea was to have a jQuery gallery with images rolling over to enhance the appeal. All the back-end is controlled by a simple PHP variable page.
