Since then, I have upgraded the comment Captcha to use FontForge's FreeSans. The Captcha images are a lot nicer looking now. Thanks for the feedback, Bappoy!
I want to thank Yu-Jie Lin from Taiwan, who commented on my post about installing the Flash Plugin on Fedora 10. He noted that you no longer need ndiswrapper to run the Adobe Flash Plugin in 64-bit browsers. Adobe Labs now provides a 64-bit Flash Plugin. I have updated my instructions for installing Flash on Fedora to reflect the new information.
Thanks Yu-Jie Lin!

I have posted instructions on how to install Flash on Fedora 9, but Laurent Armstrong wrote me to share his script for automating the Flash install process -- and more. Laurent's script is interesting, so you might want to check it out: http://vegasoft.ca/howto/Install_f9
Thanks for the email, Laurent!
Um. Wow. Most importantly: Thanks!

Digg users critiqued my instructions for installing Flash plugins using Fedora 9. So, I corrected my article to include Swfdec and NDISwrapper. Thanks, Digg.
I needed a way to jot down Linux notes that could accessed from any computer. Voila! HackTux.com. The posts will be in the form of notes. The idea is to keep it simple, searchable and indexable by search engines. Hopefully someone else can also make use of this information. Comments are always welcomed.
