This entry explains how to launch Terminal in Linux, and have the ability to SSH into another Linux computer / server to manage.
1. Start my launching Terminal in Linux. It can be found by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. (Keep in mind that Terminal is terminal, so this will work with people that use a Mac, Raspberry Pi, Putty, etc.
2. Type in this command: ssh email@example.com or ssh you@yourIPaddress Keep in mind when doing this it is understood that you have already setup permissions for accessing the remote terminal.
3. You will then be asked for the remote machines password.
4. You will then see something like this following: The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software; the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.
Debian GBU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTLY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Last login: Thu Mar 14 5:59 2013 from LOCAL ISP INFORMATION.
5. If you did this correctly you will then have something like this: you@debian:~#
Success! If you have issues leave a comment below, and I will do my best to assist you. Keep in mind that I am relatively new to this so don't beat me up to bad.

For those of you that have used it, it will be missed. For those of you who never knew it existed you missed out.
At the bottom of Google (when signed in) was the ability to change the background image of Google.com | Unfortunatly Google will be removing this feature on November 16, 2012. Below is a quote and a screenshot as stated by Google.
Background images are going away on November 16th, 2012
Thank you for using background images. As we build a more streamlined Google Search page for everyone, we'll no longer be able to support customization with background images. So you will no longer be able to see your background pictures starting November 16th, 2012.
Click Remove to stop using a background image now. Your current background image, and Picasa web albums will still be available to you.
Well, there you have it. Sorry for not blogging in a while, but I have been so darn busy at work. I know it's not an excuse, I will do my best to get something on here every now and again.

This is a quick non related entry to those who may or may not see the Google Car coming...try your best not to 'scratch' in public.
Don't ask how I found this it was simply a Google Maps navigation discover that I found. Let's leave it as that. As you can see, that when your in public nothing is private. Above is a women scratching her booty at a corner in San Francisco.

Lately I have been recieveing a lot of emails of users stating that they are unable to open Adobe PDF files in Internet Explorer, well I have one answer...let it load.
As many of you have probably been experiencing there is currently a bug in Internet Explorer that prevent PDF displaying in the browser. Microsoft is currently well aware of the issue, and they are working to hopefully get it resolved.
Keep in mind that it's not that the Adobe PDF file is loading. It's bad UI (User Interface) in Internet Explorer 9. if you are in need of a fix, this is the only one that I can offer you based on experience.
Start by Opening Adobe Reader / Acrobat:
1. Open Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat
2. Click on edit at the very top in the toolbar
3. Click on Interent
4. Then go to Preferences Window
5. Finally uncheck Display PDF in Browser
Should you have Internet Explorer Open do the following:
1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools
3. Select Internet Options
4. Go to the Advanced Tab
5. In the Security Section you will need to uncheck Do Not Save Encrypted Pages to Disk.
6. Click Ok, and restart Internet Explorer
I hope this helps, if it does a thank you would be great, if not...leave a comment and I will respond.
