Possible key mechanism to disable xscreensaver automatically when watching youtube and the like

Posted 05-29-2014 at 09:07 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I haven't even tried it yet, it just looks like a good candidate method to mess with eventually:

top p $mplayer_pid -bd 0.25 n 3 | grep $mplayer_pid | awk '{print $9}'
I saw it here:

That would give "larger than zero" numbers when mplayer is playing (I think Debian's/current "top" syntax is a little bit different and requires "b" and "d" separated,...

I decided to take the move to Seattle as an opportunity to completely rebuild my home network and harden/update/reinforce particular areas I felt needed attention in my last configuration. A fresh install of OpenBSD-5.5 ensured that nothing from the old configuration remained (partially because I upgraded to a larger CF card, and partially because I just felt like cleaning house completely).

Liquorix kernel seems more responsive than Debian's default

slow 'net connection

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:08 AM by pierre2

since, there is no *DSL availabilty, it's a 3g connection to go ..
but, boy does that thing time out, freeze and otherwise embark on a NoGo campain.

suprisingly, it will D/L stuff quite A.ok,
but it just won't stream any 'browsing the internet' ie: surf the 'net.

someting to do with the tower, - is about 8000m away - that's too far?
always thought that you could get over 20Km with mobile technology,
- but aparantly not.
