StumbleThis Drupal module to bookmark in Stumbleupon

We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Two of these are the StumbleThis module and the DiggThis module. Drupal already had a DiggThis module available for download but there was no StumbleThis module. StumbleUpon has been a popular source of traffic for zyxware.com and we wanted users to have an option to add any of our pages to their StumbleUpon favorites.

Installing Ubuntu on Laptops with single NTFS partition with Windows XP or Vista

December 28, 2007 - 07:28

Installing Ubuntu on a fresh system is very easy. It is easy on computers that already have Microsoft Windows XP or Vista already installed provided the hard disk has multiple partitions. Laptops that come with Windows XP or Windows Vista pre-installed has a problem in that they normally have only 1 partition (with a second hidden partition storing recovery data). Windows does not allow you to resize the partition on which you have the operating system. So how do you install Ubuntu in such a situation.

Installing Ubuntu on HCL B 2302 Laptop (HCL Z 2201)

November 29, 2007 - 02:20

HCL B 2302 is one of the very few sub 37500 rupees Core 2 Duo laptops available in India. It is a bargain for the price you are paying for it. This model replaces the HCL Z 2201 laptop and the only difference(in the major components - Processor, RAM, Harddisk, Screen) being the 15" screen for the B 2302 model. Ubuntu installations on most laptops are a breeze and would be ready to use without any major custom configurations. However this laptop required some specific tweaks to make the system ready to use. This instructions are for the HCL B 2302 laptop but it is very likely that they apply for the HCL Z 2201 model also.

Zyxware Logo and Corporate Motto

November 19, 2007 - 00:22

There are some things about running a company that you never think about until you run one. Some of these might look so insignificant and irrelevant in running a company that you would want to put them in the low priority list. One simple example is the need for a logo and a corporate motto. You can start a company without either of these.

Removing startdrv.exe - trojan backdoor cutwail family virus

Recently we came across a virus in one of our customers computers. The system was brought in with the complaint that it was running very slow and internet access was too slow to be of any use. We scanned the system with AVG and as was expected found a slew of viruses which AVG removed successfully after a complete scan. All but one - a file named startdrv.exe located at C:\Windows\Temp\startdrv.exe. AVG could not delete the file, neither could we delete it manually from Windows.

Enabling mp3 support in Ubuntu 7.10

October 03, 2007 - 10:30

Ubuntu 6.10 had complete multimedia support including mp3, video cds, dvds. This was taken out in 7.10 because of license restrictions on the decoders and their incompatibility with the GNU GPL under which Ubuntu is being released. Enabling multimedia support for formats requiring non-GPL codecs in Ubuntu 7.04 was a pain. This is now child's play in Ubuntu 7.10
