The Linux Project
I am currently in the process of learning how to setup a linux box to do everything from hosting to playing games to hosting files, DHCP, DNS and SAMBA. I am currently documenting everything I am doing within our forums. While this is not related to gaming directly I think those of you who game and are in the IT field will enjoy this. For those of you who have been looking for a good tutorial on a simple linux box this should be an interesting read for you. In this project I am going to be attempting the following things: build a dns server (bind or named) build a sql/apache server build a gateway/router server (iptables) compile a kernel to include all drivers into the kernel compile a kernel to exclude drivers (build and use kernel modules instead) buildRead more…

Moving your WordPress Domain on Godaddy
After having to migrate my domain from .net to .com I wanted to say something about the process. Having never done this before it was a lot harder then it had to be. That being said I’m going to show you how to do this the easy way. First off lets start with a couple of assumptions. I am assuming that both your domains are both hosted on the SAME account. Second assumption that I am making is that your domains are hosted on Godaddy. If both these are true please continue. One other thing to note is that you DO NOT need to get Deluxe hosting on both domains you only need it on one. In my case I had Deluxe hosting on www.thegamersblog.net but not on www.thegamersblog.com. 1. First thing you should do, if you haven’t already, makeRead more…

Fake Facebook Ad
“A malicious advertisement has been found within an application for Facebook that redirects users to fake antivirus software, according to a security researcher. The banner advertisement for greeting cards is intermittently displayed with an application called Farm Town, which has more than 9 million monthly users according to information published on Facebook. If the bad Shockwave Flash advertisement is displayed, the user is redirected from Facebook through several domains and ends up on a Web site selling fake antivirus software, said Sandi Hardmeier, who studies malicious advertisements and blogged about the issue.(See also “How to Remove Fake AV Software.”)” Says PC World. You can read the full artcile here. The Ad itself is said to be harmless but it is highly recommended that users NOT click on any of the ads claiming to clean their system. It’s sort of funnyRead more…
