Well, here for my first post to my blog on LQ, I am going to review (in brief) what I consider to be one of the best Linux Distros that I have tested to date. And I have tested many of them from recent history.

Aptosid "ponos"

When I first came across this distribution, I will admit it looked sharp and desktop graphics probably grabbed me subconsiciously. Upon downloading the smaller KDE mini version, I soon found myself wanting to see the XFCE and finally the...

Browsers still re-fetch pages when using back button

Posted 04-11-2012 at 11:42 AM by Skaperen

Browsers these days are still trying to re-fetch data when I press the infamous "back button". I think this was always a dumb idea.

No doubt that is the cause for many cases of web site double ordering. Someone backs up so they can print out the results of a previous page where they committed their order, and it causes the data to POST again, which places another order. Now days, for POST, you get a pop-up that says the browser needs to re-post the data.

Ah yes, must remember to press the Submit button next time.

I started this tutorial in response to a question asked on one of my other videos. Someone wanted to know what I would suggest as a PDF editor in Linux. I had every intention of showing PDFedit version 0.4.5, which is a little old now, having been released in May of 2010. However, I ended up finding totaly different application which was a bit of a surprise to me and the application did a great job editing a PDF. Better yet it's probably on your system right now, if not, it is definitely in your...
