From a business perspective I often install Linux on computers for my customers. Sometimes because they cannot afford the high price of Windows, sometimes they just need a computer that will get them by for now. I most usually use Linux Mint since it is very user-friendly and provides my end users with a simple and very usable desktop. Linux Mint also requires very little post-installation configuration so I don’t need to spend too much time getting their system running.

Years ago in college I learned a very simple way to calculate subnets. I had since forgotten this method, but have recently been re-acquainted with it. This method uses the binary representation of the subnet mask to determine the number of hosts per subnet, in turn giving you the number of possible networks and host ranges.
It seems there is often a lot of confusion when it comes to getting UnrealIRCd to link with your preferred services package, so I have put together some examples on helping you get everything put together.
