About The Journeyman Geek

I’m a computer geek, and somewhat of a hardware enthusiast. While I don’t go to the level of overclocking my system to over 9000 ghz and accidentally melting my table, I do tend to be massively passionate about setting up systems that work well and are a joy to use for myself and those around me.

I also tend to be somewhat of a generalist, playing around with computer audio related stuff, both in terms of recording and music listening, linux (I’m running this on a VPS I set up myself) and desktop hardware and software. I love technology, both in terms of the new shiny stuff, as well as old school technology.

I also believe its ok to be a snob and that the *experience* of computing isn’t just about basic input output, but about having an enjoyable experience where you don’t feel like you’re running a machine thrown together by the lowest bidder. Computing needs to be fun!

      Unfortunately no. Its on my list of things to learn I suppose, and I’ve been working at it. I’ve done a little python, but I wouldn’t consider myself to be anything beyond a toddler level programmer.

      I’m slightly disappointment that neither of these domains exist 😉 Hello Root Access!

    Hey friend! I am trying to make network scanning work on an Epson Artisan 725 under Ubuntu 12.04 and am unable to find the esci-interpreter-gt-f720_0.0.0-1_amd64.deb file which seems to be all I am missing (based upon reading multiple post including yours.) You mentioned (albeit quite a long time ago) that you had this file. Is there any way I could secure a copy?

    Thanks.

    Its kinda curious you’d think I have that specific file. I’ve never actually set up a printer on linux, and most of my linux systems at the moment run as web/application servers, running entirely stock repos. I’d guess this would be on SU or AU, and would help so much if you could jog my memory on what *exactly* I was talking about, since I’m completely confused to what this is.

      Done that. There’s a load of spam in my comments, so in future, try getting me on chat.

    Zup, geek. I clicked over from S.E. where I answer the moderately-challenging GIS and Graphics pipeline questions (mostly.) I aimed to PM you, but a blog comment will do:

    I think you should caption your terrier pix; we have a Cairn and love their mentality/temperament. Obviously they’re always up to something, the trick is catching them in the act so they look suspicious…then meme a quote in jest.

    What’s your Cairn called — curious followers want 2 know!

      He’s not actually a cairn. He’s a white schnauzer crossed with something sneaky – we think silky or aussie westie, cause his coat’s not as rough as most cairns we’ve seen.

        Oh, and he’s called Ash.
