Busy with Kent LUG

The posts have been slow at the moment as I have been spending a lot of time learning Linux and working on the Kent Linux User Group website. I now have Ubuntu running prefectly on my Sony SRX77 laptop and Fedora Core 4 at home on my secondary desktop. I am thoroughly enjoying learning about and using Linux and apart for a few needed applications on Windows I am using it most of the time. Hopefully at some stage my knowledge will be enough to produce some Linux how-to content here.

Welcolme to BinarySignal.org

I have now re-branded this site under the name BinarySignal.org as I feel it better portrays the site content and the direction I want to take it. As I produce more tech video’s we will be providing a broadcast, in it’s most basic terms, of ones and zeros, so the name fits perfectly. Also from September I start instructing students on the CCNA course and will use this site to host information and resources for them.

syndicateONE.net was initially my company name and content on BinarySignal.org will be made under that name. You can still access the site via either URL, and now email us at binarysignal@gmail.com or Skype me at BinarySignal.

Site update news - good and bad

I will start with the bad so I can end on a happy note. I have had to disable the 'Live Feed' links that were being provided by BigBold.com as the service was timing out and stopping the site from loading. Hopefully this disruption did not stop any new visitors to the site. Which brings me to the good news. Yesterday my site received it’s first ‘trackback ping’ from Michael Ridley’s blog. Michael wrote some very interesting thoughts on Data Protection Manager and backup solutions in general which is well worth reading. I hope that we continue to receive trackback pings and comments to help build this site. If anyone is interested in helping edit this site please contact me.

Website updates and video tutorials

I have added links on the left menu to some of the sites creating tech videos. I have been so impressed with some that it has encouraged me to start making my own. At the moment I am just collected the tools needed like CamStudio and practicing with Windows Movie Maker. I have created a 'practice test video' and you can download it as either High WMV (640x480 10.7MB) or Low WMV (320x280 2.9MB).
If you have any ideas for content you would like to see or be involved please email me at Support@SyndicateONE.net

syndicateONE Version 2.0

With the excellent guides at http://www.elise.com/mt/ I have been able to make some big style changes to the site as you can see. The changes are so big I think this should signal the offical release of syndicateONE version 2.0. I am still interested in having other authors conbritute to the site, so if you are interested in helping please email me. I am still also waiting patiently for the first comment to be posted.

Live Message Alerts

As you can see by the orange button on the right hand side I have added 'Live Message Alerts' to the site. Please take the time to go through the short signup process. This will allow you to get Message Alerts through MSN Messenger when the site is updated. I first saw it on JKontherun.com.

Learning Movable Type

I have found a good tutorial site, http://www.elise.com/mt/, for Movable Type that I am reading through and doing my best to understand. I hope to solve my missing graphics problems soon and add more features. Please email me if you have any suggestions or are interesting in helping adding posts to the site.

Learning about MT templates

As you may notice we are currently learning how to change the standard MovableType templates so we can customise the site. We have no knowledge of PHP so it is a trial and error process making slight changes and looking at the results. I have yet to find any good resources online about how to edit the templates, so if you know of any please let us know in the comments section.

Also comments are open to all, so please give us some feedback.

Welcome to our new site

I have just installed Movable Type on to my server in the hopes it will make maintaining this site easier. I hope to create a resource site for technical people like myself who often need good IT information but then lose it or forget how to find it. I will create categories for all the areas of computers and networking that I think we will need, and then post the information I find in those areas. At my work people often ask me how do I do this and it would be good to beable to direct them to this site.

I have another site with WordPress on so I am very interesting as to which blogging softwarw will be easier to use and configure to my liking.
