Almost but not quite qbasic.

Posted 11-14-2011 at 11:41 PM by peonuser

Gosh I wrote so many programs in Quickbasic, I just hated to give them up. I looked around for a clone of Quickbasic and found Freebasic. I write a lot of my home automation routines in Freebasic now. So easy to control the parallel port compared to everything else and you do not have to have any special libraries other than the original libs to install the program. I have come up with at least on Debian a routine to install Freebasic. Tried it on Ubuntu 10.05 and Debian squeeze.

In my last blog I mentioned being proud of having closed that platinum plated Microsoft door (maintenance and updates became too much of an investment - with no impressive return), and I promissed myself to regulary update this blog - oops!

I have been cramming C++, MySQL, and recently I developed my first X-Window application using QT4. Now that I got a fair idea about the basics, it is time to jump into deep waters, and start programming like I used to in VB. I think that is the...

Merging two log files

Posted 11-14-2011 at 04:52 AM by zhjim

Today I needed to merge two log files in cronological together. Heres my way about.

copy the two files to one host. (scp file name@server:~userhome
get the hostname infront of each line. (sed -i s/^/hostname/g first_file; ...)
cat ./first_file ./second_file | sort -k 3 > ./new_log

-k in sort stands for key. In my turn the datetime was the third field.

Improvements:
Get some color into the diffrence hostsnames.

Kind of neat.

Beginning to like gpxe more and more. So far we have it for setting up to install linux distros via the net. Now we have it to load clonezilla. There were no instructions for setting it up with clonezilla except for pxe usage. That information was enough to make adjustments to get clonezilla to load and run via gpxe. No more messing around with tftp except when needed.

Tried to upgrade the proms to gpxe on some 3com cards, but no luck. they might be locked. Have some 3com cards...

High CPU usage + underclock vs. low CPU + normal/high clock

Posted 11-13-2011 at 02:02 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 11-13-2011 at 02:05 PM by the dsc

This is just a question rather than a typical blog post. I know blogs aren't really supposed to be used for that, but I think it's justifiable since it's not that important or urgent, even though it has some practical applications. So I'm not "stealing" attention from other users with more pressing matters over there.

The question is basically "what gets more work done":

a) higher CPU usage per process (limiting less or not limiting the usage at...
