Archive for the ‘Ubuntu Linux’ Category

Please update your bookmarks to http://derekhildreth.com/blogSee you there!

The reason for the move is simple: I wanted more control over my WordPress blog than what I had here at WordPress.com, so I switched to WordPress.org on a dedicated host. All of the posts you find here are also available over at my new blog address. I’m leaving this blog and its existing posts active, but any new posts, tutorials, guides, entries will be continued on http://derekhildreth.com/blog.

Thanks for understanding,

Derek Hildreth

This tutorial is intended to help guide new web masters (like myself) in getting their own totally free, self-hosted phpBB3 forum up and running. I’m using Fedora 8 to accomplish this, but your distribution of Linux is probably very similar. I try to write my tutorials so that anybody with any distribution can accomplish the task. It may not be identical, but the principles are usually the same….

This tutorial is intended to help guide new web masters (like myself) in getting their own totally free, self-hosted WordPress.org blog up and running. I’m using Fedora 8 to accomplish this, but your distribution of Linux is probably very similar. In fact, a great guide for Ubuntu is located here on their wiki. I try to write my tutorials so that anybody with any distribution can accomplish the task. It may not be identical, but the principles are usually the same. By the way, the setup instructions for Fedora 8 are located in the directory usr/share/doc/wordpress.2.3.2 after installing the wordpress package.

Let’s get started….

I got a real kick out of this program I stumbled upon called metapixel. You’ve seen these types of pictures before in art galleries and such, but some programmer out there figured out how to make it easy on the rest of us! Here are some of the results that I got from a collection of 1,880 photos. Enjoy!

Mosaics

To get the best experience, after clicking on the album link “Mosaics”, download the photos one by one so you can get the full resolution images and zoom into each of the smaller photos. If you can’t, consider settling for the online Slideshow!

If you’re interested on how to create these yourself, I’ve written a tutorial located here: How To Make Great Photo Mosaics with Metapixel.
