Boxee Beta — A New Face to Home Theater

For those of you who keep up with the home the­ater world “Box­ee” is most like­ly a con­cept that you have heard about before.  Box­ee is a for­mal media cen­ter appli­ca­tion that was built based on the xbmc open-source project.  Box­ee is a soft­ware front end that dis­plays media from your com­put­er and oth­er net­work con­nect­ed devices.  Box­ee also has the abil­i­ty to con­nect to var­i­ous inter­net sources, and stream media direct­ly from the net. Around 6 months ago Box­ee final­ly moved into the Beta phase and has a down­load that is avail­able for major Oper­at­ing Sys­tems (Win­dows, Lin­ux and Apple).  Cre­ate a new account on boxee.tv and reap the many fea­tures that Box­ee has to offer. User Inter­face:  8 out of 10 The user inter­face on Box­ee beta is unbeat­able.  It is clear and con­cise with­out too much eyeRead more…

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…
