I didn't know I had one 'till I got an email this morning telling me I did. Cool!

So, I'm an XP refugee, having left the windows pain when they dropped support in May 2014. I got myself a new Linux machine from System 76 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed on it and haven't looked back since.

Yes, there was/is a learning curve for me but I'm very happy with my computer now. I'm learning stuff! I like that. I'm starting to write scripts in the BASH shell. I really...

AndEX (Android-x86) 5.1.1 Lollipop with GAPPS and kernel 4.0.8 – Build 151010

NEWS 151010: Build 150916 has been replaced by Build 151010, which is totally error-free and has some extra features.

COMPARISON with my previous Build from 150916
News in Build 151010: Most important is that Build 151010 can run and be installed in VirtualBox and VMware. Also that OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for Intel/AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveau) chipsets is enabled. Ive also added the Twitter and Viber apps. Very useful apps (I think).

I just want to share that I have “discovered” that Skype and Viber can be installed and used without problems in “my” Android x86 system KitKat Build 7 from 150721. These are pretty awesome apps, wouldn’t you agree?

Terminal with similar keybindings to kwrite / kate / gedit / html text fields?

Posted 10-06-2015 at 10:04 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Not tremendously important, so I'll not post on the forums.

On text editors I'm frequently using things like shift/control+shift to select text and overwrite it. But besides holding control and using the keys to jump between words, terminals usually don't do selection the same way. You can try to select with the mouse, but it just works to copy to the clipboard, it won't be replaced by the text you type next. And regarding the mouse aspects, I think pasting will often/always...

CLI to get Oracle Supply Network email attachments

Updated 11-12-2015 at 09:05 AM by MensaWater

I'm writing this up because I've often seen the question "How do I extract email attachments at command line?". I had to figure out how to use various tools to do this recently and figured I'd share what I did.

EDIT 11-Nov-2015:
While what is written below certainly works for extracting email attachments including those sent by OSN it turns out Oracle does NOT include all fields in the email they send so we ultimately abandoned this setup for OSN and are instead...
