…latest stable 2.4 release and i'm using a 64-bit instance - (you can find the URL to download the ISO from the Elastix download page ) wget <Elastix-2.4.0-Stable-x86_64-bin-04feb2013.iso>

Mount the ISO locally mkdir /mnt/iso mount -o loop Elastix-2.4.0-Stable-x86_64-bin-04feb2013.iso /mnt/iso cd /mnt/iso

Create a Yum repository file for the mounted ISO - gist here - and place into /etc/yum.repos.d/elastix-cd.repo wget https://gist.github.com/chris-at-thewebfellas/8086953/raw/dacd4440e110ec0dab6ad65495f0fb9a5ee302e1/elastix-cd.repo …

…of the D7000 's sensor size. I like the D7000 's high ISO and how optically faithful the 35-50mm range is.

I bring it with me on trips and to major events, but I still find myself leaving it in the bag because I don't like having it around my neck or in my hand on all time. I inevitably take some photos with my iPhone.

I'm usually disappointed with my iPhone photos when I load them on the computer. The colors and res are sharp, but the wide angle distorts close-up …

…gave you remote access to the machine - even when things had gone badly wrong. You could even mount ISO files over the network - meaning you could install Operating Systems over it - great for when things had all gone a bit wrong, or even for upgrading with some peace of mind that you could access the machine regardless of what happened. When working with XenServer it was a pretty useful way of upgrading between major releases (for some reason it didn't allow remote upgrades).

…second and quicker, so given the aforementioned crappy lighting conditions you need to stay upwards of ISO 3200 most of the time.

This is one rare occasion where the camera and lens combination just needs be situated in the pricier segment, just because it's pretty much impossible to get a decent exposure in these lighting conditions if your equipment doesn't let in enough light or starts spitting noisy images at you as soon as you cross the boundaries of ISO 800.

…mistakes we do. I don't believe they got all the settings on the camera, ie aperture, shutter speed, ISO, so many other minute details and finally the composition perfect on the first shot. They learned by trial and error.

And the issue of having a Facebook photography page. I only look upon it as a learning tool. It is a place I will get maximum exposure for my pictures. I have around 600+ friends on facebook, if I could get atleast 10 of them to like my page I get 20 eyeballs to scrutinize …

…operating system. The Zotac ZBOX has no CD drive, so I downloaded the Ubuntu ISO from the website, and I used UNetbootin to make a bootable USB drive.

I plugged an HDMI cable from the Zotac into my TV, and I plugged a wired USB keyboard and mouse in the Zotac. I inserted the USB drive and booted it up. It automatically booted from the drive, and I selected Install.

Once the installation was finished, I had to go to Settings -> Sound and choose the HDMI …

For a few years, a group of Japanese academics have been working on formalizing the Ruby programming language into a specification they hoped would be accepted by ISO. From time to time, I have read through it, and I had one major concern.

Because Ruby 1.9 was still in a lot of flux when they were drafting the specification, the authors left a lot of details out. Unfortunately, some of these details are extremely important. Here's one example, from the specification of String#[] :
