how to wake on lan?

Posted 10-06-2012 at 03:16 PM by ted_chou12

Shutdown is easy but wake up is hard, well, in terms of both ppl and machines. Shutdown goes from system to bios, which makes life so much easier, but to initiate the machine, it just needs that physical "touch" to push the system. In fact, there is a built-in capability in your motherboard bios called "wakeonlan" or wol for short. First, you need to go into your bios to turn it on, since the menu may differ from company to company, you have to sort this out on your own. Make...

Story: Justice Dept. to defend warrantless cell phone tracking

Posted 10-03-2012 at 04:34 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Hmmm... Giving the U.S. Justice department legal permission to track our movements, via our cellphone signal, 24 hours a day without even mentioning it to a judge... I'm not too sure about that one. Anyone else have doubts?

Tags epub, pdf, sed, truncated

Sometimes I want to quote some PDF on pure text, luckily enough it would have actual text rather than being an non-OCRed image, but often there's still the problem that the text on the PDF is truncated/formatted in a fake/dumb way, with actual "new lines" to break the page, which may not make the text completely unreadable when pasted in a text editor, but it's reasonably annoying, and may require quite some time to fix manually.
