First of All,

My machine is as follows:

Dell Inspiron notebook N5110 Core i5 with Nvidia GT 525M with optimus technology, This optimus technology is simply the device have two graphics cards, one Intel and the other is the Nvidia one.

This is used to save laptop’s battery by disabling the Nvidia card that is relying on GPUs when low graphics processing is needed and doing that on the intel one, and when high performance is needed the work is done on the Nvidia GPUs are redirected to the intel one after being done.

So it’s FCIS third year, ha?!!

5 Comments

Ok, let me see..
First, FCIS third year is not hard at all, it is very interesting and you’ll learn so much from it if you wish just try to really free yourself from anything except your studies to enjoy it.

Second, the best thing to learn from during this year in some subjects will be the projects you do, so try to start in those projects as early as possible to give each project enough time and innovate..

Third, what I am going to write next depends mostly on my knowledge and experience that might be outdated as I was in this place may be three years a go and it depends on my way of thinking and opinions.

So, lets see the subjects you do have in it

Happy 2 Ubuntu years..

2 Comments

Hello,

Nearly two years have  passed since my move to Ubuntu

gotta say, It’s an interesting BSOD-less experience 😛

Of course I won’t claim it’s perfectly stable but for me it’s way more stable than windows.

kind of I had some problems most are solved, others needed workarounds, but mostly what i need to do is done at the end thanks to ALLAH

The continues problem was that my surrounding colleagues are not Ubuntu familiar/users and I’m working on that problem right now ;D

Anyway, I’ll list now the apps I found useful during those 2 years and I use them frequently.

First, for archiving purposes, this is my current desktop screenshot

why do you want to download it and it’s already on your machine ?! 😀

Just go to YouTube or Facebook and watch the video for the first time (make sure it’s all streamed)

Full streamed video from YouTube

DO NOT refresh or close the browser (I tested it with Firefox and Chromium)

With Ubuntu [A Fresh Install]

No, the old install didn’t crash !!!

i just was very anxious about the new Ubuntu release (Karmic Koala), so i installed the RC version

and as u know i hate to install a fresh install of any OS until the currently running one crashes, hangs and cries to let it die 😀
