wifiroamd, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG, and Fedora One of the things that has annoyed me about Fedora has been the decision to switch over to using NetworkManager to manage all network connections. Now, on the service this has a lot of advantages. A lot of work has gone into it, and it just works for a vast majority of the installations out there. They have made it so the move from wired to wireless and back can be done without the user doing anything.

Alerting with Remind Back in my article on Remind, I talked about the simple power of remind to power your scheduling needs. That is all fine and good, but how to you get it to tell you when you have an event? In its simplest form, when you run remind from the command line, it will not only display the current day’s reminders, but it will run in the background and wake up to tell you about other reminders on the screen while you work.
