Create Windows 8.1 accessible samba shares with user level authentication

Posted by on Dec 6, 2013 in Computers, Linux | Comments Off

I have had the hardest time getting Windows to access user level protected Samaba shares until today. I found out how to properly add a samba user (webmin does not seem to do it properly on it’s own). I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

(replace SAMBAUSERNAME with the name you want to use)

sudo useradd -s /bin/true SAMBAUSERNAME
sudo smbpasswd -L -a SAMBAUSERNAME
sudo smbpasswd -L -e SAMBAUSERNAME

Cool Windows 8 Logo and settings for Classic Shell Start Button

Posted by on Apr 16, 2013 in Computers | Comments Off


This is what your taskbar can look like with Windows 8, Classic Shell, and my custom windows 8 logo image.

If you can’t stand the Windows 8 metro interface or just want to have the option of the old start menu too, You want to pay attention.

This is how you can have the best of both worlds by getting the faster Windows 8 system but skip all the “Metro” interface and make it work similar to Windows 7.

First, you want to install Classic Shell from Then  you want to download the image to the left here to use as your start button image. Place it in the classic shell skins folder in your program files folder. If you want some easy to use good looking settings, download my XML of classic shell settings and import those settings as well.

A Field Trip to Fantastic Caverns

Posted by on Feb 24, 2013 in Field Trips, Headlines, Homeschool, Life | 0 comments

Spending the afternoon exploring God’s creation underground, the whole family took a field trip to Fantastic Caverns! The cave is just north of Springfield, so not too far of a trip and the kids loved exploring this cave for the first time, being the second cave tour of their lives. (Actually, this way Ryan’s second time in this cave, but he was still “in the tummy” as we say around here, so that didn’t count :p )
