Mt Gox Gadget

If anyone still uses the Mt. Gox Google Gadget, I fixed it so it’s working again. Mt. Gox changed their URL in March, and I hadn’t noticed.

Steam for Linux under Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit

Steam is made specifically for Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit. I run Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit, so after reading a few sites, I finally got things working properly. From here, I’m assuming you’ve already installed Xubuntu and the proprietary driver for your video card.

1) Snag the 32-bit version of Flash from Adobe. Mine defaults to 64-bit Linux, so I had to select the different operating system option at the top of the page. Select the 32-bit, .tar.gz package and download that.

2) Extract the tarball, and copy into the /usr/lib/browser-plugins
From a terminal window
cd ~/Downloads
tar -xvzf install_flash_player*
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/browser-plugins
sudo cp /usr/lib/browser-plugins

3) Install 32-bit libraries
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs -f
sudo apt-get -f install

4) Download and install Steam
sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb

Decentralized DNS – Namecoin

I recently registered sixy.bit. The .bit TLD was created by the Namecoin project to establish a decentralized DNS system that cannot be censored by the US or any other government.

There are several ways to enable .bit on your browser. This is what I’ve found to be the most seamless.
