Hackosis.com – my old tech blog

Man I wish I still had a copy around somewhere and I would bring that old site back online just for kicks and giggles. If you notice in my bio on this site I used to run a tech blog ages ago called hackosis.com. ( Please don’t go to that URL now. God knows what kind of unformidable pop up or virus might go onto your computer from visiting a URL you know nothing about. )


You may view an archive copy of my old tech blog here in all it’s glory ( minus the css styling and graphic design of the website – boo WayBack Machine!!! ):

Archive of Hackosis.com on the Internet Archive WayBack Machine – circa 2008

It was a slightly successful blog with around 750 people subscribed to the feed and active comments on a daily basis. I remember writing an article about what happened to a 32 bit Linux after it hit a certain day in the year 2038. Yes, the results were very bizarre – things started happening before the date. I recorded what happened on the screen and someone submitted it to digg.com – which at the time was more like reddit. I got over 20,000 hits in one day off that article and my web host was emailing me telling me if I kept that up that I would have to up my hosting package. Lifehacker.com also featured some of the articles, which are still viewable here:

Access the Internet When Web Browsers are Disabled

Speed Up Linux Hard Drives by Disabling Atime

Fix a Scratched LCD Monitor

Make Vista Use Multiple Cores to Speed Boot Time

Hmm, maybe one day soon sdmckinley.com will have 750 feed subscribers and active comments. I think so!
