New Image of Ghostbusters Female Cast Released

If you are like me, you are anxiously awaiting the release of the next generation of Ghostbusters. Thirty years after the original film, the reboot offers your kids the same excitement it offered you at that age. The new version looks to pass the Bechdel test and show that Geeks are more than the stereotypical males such as found in Big Bang Theory. Produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Paul Feig and Katie Dippold. Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the paranormal fighting quartet. Ghostbusters release is planned July of 2016.

Shaq on Twitter, Beam Personal Assistant – SXSW 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt’s the last day of my SXSW coverage. I started the day with breakfast tacos 16 floors above Austin. We learned about an analytics took that included Tumblr. From there I stopped by the blogger lounge where I found my friend Calvin won a Samsung camera. What was really funny was the fact he took a few pictures with it, someone from Samsung saw it and awarded him a Galaxy Tab 2. Congrats, Calvin! I stopped in another session – this one asking if Podcasting needed a reboot. The show had Colin Anderson, Roman Mars, Jesse Thorn and Helen Zaltzman. The group talked monitization, if Listeners are plateauing, Challenges and opportunities and What a podcast reboot looks like. Then it was back to the Blogger lounge as Shaquille O’Neil stopped by. He talked about how he got on Twitter and how he remembers when SXSW was music only....

Installing CentOS on Virtual Box, Part 3:  Finishing the Install 1

Installing CentOS on Virtual Box, Part 3: Finishing the Install

This is the third part of a series. Part One – Installing CentOS goes through the initial installation and settings of the Virtual box. Part Two – Installing CentOS talks about how you should configure the Hard drive. Now that the hard drive configuration is set, CentOS asked about networking. I accepted the defaults through the three dialogs. First, to configure the adapter. Second, to choose between DHCP or static ip address. Third, to select the computer name. I felt lazy, so I left it blank; had I named it, I likely would have named it mackerel or flounder or blowfish, since I name my computers for sea creatures. Next, CentOS asked me for my timezone. As is common in Linux distributions, time zones are identified by major cities, not by GMT +/- questions. After that, it asked me to establish a password for the root (administrator) user:...

Installing Fedora in Virtual Box #3:  Completing the Installation and Starting the New System.

Installing Fedora in Virtual Box #3: Completing the Installation and Starting the New System.

Part one is here; part two is here. After formatting the hard drive, Fedora begins the base install. Once that’s done, it asks what type of installation you want: Any one or all of these items can be installed later: Graphical Desktop installs GUI along with a standard package of software, including an office suite (whoops!), browsers, file managers, media players, and the like. Software Development installs programming and testing tools and libraries. Webserver installs Apache, PHP, PERL, MySQL, and server utilties pre-configured to work together. Minimal is just that, mimimal: a command line environment with no GUI. I selected “Graphical Desktop.” The “Repositories” list at the bottom of the screen points to where on the internet Fedora will go to get additional software. The “Installation Repo” will be sufficient for almost everyone. Once I made my selections, I wandered away and did something else until Fedora prompted...
