Stand up for Freedom – Join The New Zealand Internet Blackout

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bigbrovar @ 8:00 am

Join The New Zealand Internet Blackout to protest against the Guilt Upon Accusation law ‘Section 92A’ that calls for Internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny. This is due to come into effect on February 28th unless immediate action is taken by the National Party


Right May be you don’t live in New Zealand, but remember

First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the communists
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out –
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Already This evil practise is been allegedly  used by   Starcomms in Nigeria to arbitraryly disconnect the Internet lines of many of their customers for downloading pirated media, without giving the customers a chance to defend themselves.

Elisa : A Nice Media Center for Ubuntu

Tags: , ,

When i started using Linux some 2 years ago, one application i really wanted to have was a media center. I liked having all my multimedia controlled by one software, like a one stop media shop (more or less)

On windows i used the windows media center which is a very cool tool for my needs. Unfortuntely when i migrated to Linux i was unable to find a program that does what i wanted. i tried MyTV but it was too TV centric i don’t have a TV Card- beside was a witch to configure. I just wanted something that was easy to install, easy to use, and just works.

Fix Xubuntu Rhymbox error: Unable to activate plugin Jamendo and Unable to activate plugin Magnatune Store

Filed under: Guides,Ubuntu,Uncategorized — Bigbrovar @ 4:44 pm

I usually get this error when i install Rhythmbox from an xfce environment.It comes up whenever i start it. although the program would still run. i always find it very annoying. however searching the problem reveals that installing libgnomevfs2-extra from synaptic fixes it. so i guess one less thing to worry about.
