Mount Disks in Ubuntu

I’m currently working on a server migration and doing backups at the same time, all this on a remote VPS, and I just realized I keep on forgetting how to mount disks in Ubuntu and Linux in general. This Ubuntu guide on Mount/USB was very helpful. Basically, these are the commands that come handy:

sudo mkdir /media/external
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/external

Or something close to that.

iPad & iPhone Fonts

The recently released iPad and the iPhone have been revolutionary devices that change the way we access the web. As a result, web designers should be aware about the typeface options in both devices so you can properly declare them in your stylesheets without unnecessarily digging into @font–face embedding.

Font Squirrel’s @font-face Generator

Converting fonts to make them better suited for CSS @font-face use has not been exactly easy—until now. Free font library site Font Squirrel has just launched a @font-face generator! Their tool might just be good enough for web designers looking to take advantage of @font-face embedding, allowing for various tricks like subsetting to reduce a font’s file size and make it ideal for web use.

Go on, try it! Just make sure you use a font that allows for for @font-face embedding.

Linux tips

Having just done some work on a Linux webserver, here’s some articles I recently used to make tasks just a bit easier.

Links: Mobile phones & SMS Gateways

Recently, I’ve been reading on mobile phones and setting up your own SMS gateway for various uses. I think this technology has huge potential in complementing web applications, or being applications by themselves. Here’s the links I’ve recently stumbled upon:

Links of interest

I’ve been continuously keeping a list of my favorite web designer links, so here’s some I’ve found recently interesting:

Free PHP Books

Almost every web 2.0 developer has dabbled with PHP at least once in their lives, and though some praise Ruby on Rails or other framework, some live and die with PHP programming. I’m one of those PHP die–hards that would use it over anything else, as long as it is still possible.

Now if you’re one aspiring web developer or designer, or one of those special cross–breeds that excel in both, you’d love this site that lists countless free PHP books. Yes, free! Also listed on the same site are resources for other programming/computing topics that can be very useful for everyone. This one goes into my bookmarks.

WordPress Monkey

WordPress is really the “in thing” nowadays that even old school favorite webmonkey has a site building article using the popular blogging software. Theme installation and customization is pretty much covered along with a brief intro on WordPress plugins, nifty little extensions that could make or break (literally!) your site.

This new article almost coincides with the recent release of WordPress 2.0.3 which addresses several bugs and important security concerns. If you’re running the WP2 codebase on your site, be sure to get this maintenance release.

WordPress’s query_posts() function

The growth of WordPress has been overwhelming, and now almost everyone is blogging using WP as their platform of choice, or writing on WordPress.com. The upsurge in usage and interest has spawned the development of various themes and plugins, allowing for use of WP in an entirely different form.

The query_posts() function is one you’re very likely to encounter when heavily playing with the application’s themes and pages. This function is essential in your arsenal in customizing your WP install and making it behave just the way you want it to.
