Finally an outlet for my writing skills has arrived. With all the article software and spinners out there destroying the word I have decided to create real content. I have begun to publish articles to some of the article websites. Here is the main site I have found to be very good for publishing: This site looks very professional and I receive almost instant approval on my articles. While many people abuse the system and spin many articles I choose to write real articles with good content instead. Recently I have also been making big changes to my main website at : This site will be full of useful information, tutorials, and more. It will be my central web hub of activity.

Since there seems to be no netflix client for my Ubuntu Linux system and I have a valid Netflix membership that I pay for monthly I , of course, had to overcome this barrier. I mean, why should I be “forced” to boot into a Windows OS just to watch a movie on Netflix? I had played around with some Operating systems inside of virtual boxes before but they had always been a little sluggish. Since it had been a couple years and I had newer hardware and more ram now I though I would give it a shot , so I installed VirtualBox OSE within linux. Inside of this I made a new install of one of my Windows XP Pro disks. Guess what? It works fine , not sluggish at all. The only slight drawback is trying to get the right screen resolution. Sometimes I lose the bottom of the screen and I have to use the side scroll bar to get down to my taskbar and start menu but this is a minor problem. I choose instead to stay with a slightly smaller window where I can see the entire desktop. I install the web app for my Netflix watch instantly and now I can easily watch my movies (that I already pay for) inside of Linux. So if you are wondering how to do this or if it will work for you my hardware is not stellar by any means. I only have 2GB of ram and an MSI board that is a couple years old running an AMD Athlon II X2 245 (dual core) processor. I can watch movies just fine with no lag. So here is your solution and to all Linux people out there – if they won’t give us a way to do this then we make our own. Check here for my latest offers:

Ubuntu Linux

Posted: May 22, 2010 in internet, Linux, music, Uncategorized

I have posted in my various blogs of my adventures between various versions of Linux and sometimes going back to Windows OS. However, Ubuntu Linux has proven to be the best and most stable of all the operating systems I have tried. I used to download all kinds of various Linux distros and test them out. I really have no reason to do that anymore , Ubuntu does everything that I need. As I write this now I am listening to streaming music using my LastFM client. I can easily update my blog using the FireFox web browser. If I want to edit some music, I launch the Audacity program. If I need to convert a wav file to an mp3 file to upload to a music site, I launch my sound converter program. If I would like to make a multitrack recording I load up my Linux Multimedia Studio or LMMS. So, thanks to the Ubuntu team for making my pc a joy to work with.

Like many others right now several of my sites hosted on GoDaddy were recently hacked and infected with Malware. I first attempted to clean them and change all my passwords. However, the attack continued. When I contacted their support I was presented with a form letter on how I was supposed to be protecting my sites. I soon canceled my hosting plan. This proved to be a blessing in disguise. I did not realize the amount of free hosting providers out there. The majority of what I was using the sites for was various personal hobbies such as music. My main music website was such a jumbled mess anyways it deserved to be thrown out with the trash. There are many great sites out there that let you upload your mp3 files that you personally create. I’ve always tried to think also about how to always have fresh content on my home pages – trying various ideas like news feeds, etc. So, I have come up with a plan to take advantage of all the great free services out here on the internet. I do have 3 blogs that I by no means at this time update on a regular basis. Hopefully, that is about to change. By using a combination of Free Web Hosting, Free music/artist websites, and using 2 of my three blogs to feed in fresh content I should now be back in business. So, welcome to the new Mudball Records website.
