Installing linux, in a dual-boot environment

Ever want to try out linux, for real, not just in a vm, but you’re afraid of losing your safety net? Sure, you could use a spare machine, but what if you don’t have one? Or maybe you’ve got one decent machine and want to see what linux can do with it? Well since the beginning (for me, 1998 or so) I’ve been doing just that on my main machine. I dual-boot windows and linux. Today I decided it was time to get it done on my main PC, an Alienware gaming tower, that I use for gaming and media creation/editing. I can’t ditch windows because a lot of the creative tools I use are Windows or mac only, s ..read more

In my last post, The new Social Media (or.. it should be), I talked about activitypub, and how de-centralized social media _should be_ the future. In this post I’d like to talk a little bit about my experiences since joining Mastodon, and a few other federated services I’ve tried out. I looked at mastodon years ago, I thought it was a great idea. I’d already given Diaspora (another de-centralized social network, though not activitypub) a try, and never really saw the adoption. I was more than a little concerned that mastodon would do the same thing. At the time I didn’t know what activitypub w ..read more

I feel like there are some misunderstandings flying around. I wanted to write something to help. Part opinion and part technical. This post is meant to spread the word and maybe dispel some doubts around federated social media, commonly referred to as “The Fediverse” Ok, stop, a fedi-what? Fediverse. Check the link above. It’s a word used to describe the whole of a new-ish movement for decentralized social networks. What’s that you might ask? Well, it’s what it sounds like. A social network that doesn’t depend on one dude and his intentions to operate, because nodes or instances within that ne ..read more

Hi Folks! It’s me, Nate. It’s been several months since we put the show in moth-balls. I’ve since started a new off-road related podcast, and I’m having a ball! But it’s left me wondering what to do with The Iron Sysadmin brand. See, I still very much enjoy creating content for you all. It’s why I do what I do for a living, and why I also do it in the off-road space. I love sharing information, trying to make a dent in the industry, and doing it on my terms. The problem with the Iron Sysadmin podcast was, that it was a bit too tight of a box for the sort of content that I want to create now. T ..read more

Folks! Listeners! Bad rendition of disney tune lovers! We have some news we need to share. Over the years The Iron Sysadmin podcast has evolved. On Episode 1 Jason and I were both working in IT ops in one aspect or another, and we started this show because we thought there was a gap in the current (or, at the time anyway) podcast landscape for content BY sysadmins, FOR sysadmins. We wanted to make a show that addressed some of the challenges in a Sysadmin’s life. Not just their day job, but topicslike work/life balance, staying healthy, and working with others. We had 0 audio editing skills, a ..read more
