same-gnome game

Posted 09-08-2012 at 08:00 PM by sundry_50
Tags same-gnome

The only game I play is same-gnome which is a strategy game. It was on my Ubuntu 10.04 but I had to dig around for a method to install it there. When I upgraded to 12.04 same-gnome was gone. Several hours later I decided there was no good way to put it in 12.04 even though I had the .deb. Desperation took over and I decided to download an 8.10 iso where I found same-gnome in the default games. Thank you VirtualBox! It requires running a virtual machine with Ubuntu 8.10 installed but I have...

bash sort using a tab delimiter

Posted 09-07-2012 at 01:49 PM by NullTerminator

Tags bash, sort, tab

There are several ways to sort things when fields are tab separated. The simplest I have found is
TAB=`echo -e "\t"`
sort -t"$TAB" -k 5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sorted.tsv
syntax may vary for dos shells, possibly as
set tab=echo "\t"
sort -t"%tab%" -k5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sortedFile.tsv
As of this posting, both variations are subject to verification of the syntax.

Log4j Message Filtering

Some Notes on built in filtering facility
org.apache.log4j.varia.StringMatchFilter - this is a "contains" match paradigm.
Followup: This actually uses the indexOf method for matching, so it acts like a "contains" match, and IS CaseSensitive.

I have not been blogging for a good portion of time this is just a small update. Since my last blog I have moved to Kubuntu 12.04 LTS and enjoy it very much. I'll try to maybe post a screenshot of my desktop. Nothing special but a powerful desktop that I enjoy to use. Best of all is that I was able to use my home directoy with kubuntu as if it was Debian 6.Sadly my dvi video simply does not work on debian nor kubuntu. :-)

The picture that has been converted to compressed jpeg file...

Western Digital replaces bricked drive, OK to buy.

Posted 09-06-2012 at 09:20 AM by Skaperen

Buying Western digital drives is back ON. WD has come through, finally, and replaced the bricked drive mentioned in my previous x 2 post here.

I hope the tech support people at WD get an update about how to handle firmware upgrade issues so they can avoid things like this in the future. New firmware, at least if they recommend it, should be supported for at least as...
