Yet another new version of exGENT (Gentoo) with LXDE

Posted 04-15-2013 at 02:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.

Paging? Swapping? Which is it?

Posted 04-15-2013 at 12:52 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

It's a bit big to be called a "one-liner", but this "script" will give you a short overview of paging levels vs. swapping levels on your machine.

Set T=<seconds> to whatever timeframe you want to test for.

Code:
T=5; ( vmstat -s; sleep $T; vmstat -s ) | awk -v T="$T" -F'[(/)]' '/pages paged in/{ pgpio=pgpin; pgpin=$1 } /pages paged out/{ pgpoo=pgpon; pgpon=$1 } /pages swapped in/{ pgsio=pgsin; pgsin=$1 } /pages swapped out/{ pgsoo=pgson;

One of my other passions (aside from OpenBSD, Linux, philosophy, math, etc...) is Cichlids. Not just any Cichlid, though...Lake Malawi (Mbuna) Cichlids, in particular.

I currently have a 55 gallon aquarium housing quite a few species of Mbuna. One notable species is Melanochromis Auratus. I currently have four of them, all purchased before the color changes to distinguish the males and females. When one started to turn black and blue, I named him "Brutus". He happily...

On Bitcoinery

Posted 04-12-2013 at 08:20 PM by mintyninja41 (The Groovy Blog of MintyNinja41)

The trade model allows for the anonymisation of trade, which is why the Tor Network is full of shady characters who prefer to use BTCs instead of physical currency. But, although it has various advantages over the normal currencies preferred by political states, BTC is still a young monetary system. Conversion...
