The heavens shined its light upon me… [dramatic pause] as I purchased my latest computing device… the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. What a sweet piece of machinery. Yes, I played with the Windows 8 a bit and then re-sized the hard drive to make way for its Linux-overlord. Of course, it didn’t go smoothly — I ran into some minor issues, but once I got through them I was off to the races.
Recently I logged into my dyndns.com account to continue my good free status to realize that their free service has been discontinued. I then performed an emergency Google Search for “free dns” and found no-ip.com. What amazed me is this group is certainly taking advantage of DynDNS’ move and asked me if I recently lost my free DynDNS account. YUP! Enough of my story, here’s how to setup the No-IP client on your Fedora machine.
Last night (…and a bit in the morning) I blissfully upgraded my desktop from Fedora 18 to Fedora 19 using a new tool called FedUp (FEDora UPgrader). Now; I’m no punk when it comes to installing a fresh copy of an operating system, but I trust Linux upgrades over any other OS upgrades any day of the week.
It’s been about 4 months now and I think it’s time to inform you that I have a new job. Yup, I’ve left the public sector to rejoin the living in the sweet, sweet private sector. In this new position my job title is “User Interface Engineer.” Sounds fancy, eh!?
