Restore some of chrome/ium performance by ditching extensions

Posted 06-05-2014 at 08:42 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 06-05-2014 at 08:44 PM by the dsc

It may be obvious at hindsight but took me a while to try it.

Chrome/ium already has the advantage of being able to enable/disable extensions without restart, so it's really a good practice, compared with Firefox. You can sometimes enable an extension just while you're using it.

I think the particular extension that was causing most of the slowness was/is Tampermonkey, which is sort of a scriptish/greasemonkey for Chrome. I think that there may be some bug with it because...

NEWS 140604

MeX Linux is now based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 17 – codenamed “Qiana“, released 20140531 and on Ubuntu 14.04 – codenamed “Trusty Tahr“, released 20140417). All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140604. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.14.5!

Posted 06-02-2014 at 12:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.14.5-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.14.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140531).

I just want to Thank all of you for putting up w/ me

Posted 05-31-2014 at 04:55 PM by Peter T

I have U14.04 alone on my HP. I did a fresh install and chose to let Linux set a 'logical' partitioning scheme
on it's own during the installation phase. I hope that will be okay for now, because I really am afraid to go in there and tinker.

Someone here was kind enough to mention 'transmission' as the app for torrents in the Linux realm.
I would like to hear more, or have a link posted for me to read.

again ,, thanks

Simple "at"-like script thingie to run other things at a given time

Posted 05-31-2014 at 01:00 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 05-31-2014 at 01:16 PM by the dsc (bad phrasing/grammar)
Tags lazyness

Code:
#!/bin/bash
now=$(date +%s)
then=$(date --date "$1" +%s)
sleep $((then-now))
I was just tired to try to figure the syntax and usage of "at", when I just wanted gxmessage to pop up to remind me of something.

Usage: "when 17:20 && gxmessage whatever or whatever you want to start at 17:20"

Change "when" to whatever name you wish to call it. Perhaps "by" is more grammatically...
