Thunderbird "hyperlinks don't open" fix

Posted 12-31-2012 at 05:45 AM by catkin
Updated 01-04-2013 at 01:27 AM by catkin

A new installation of Thunderbird did not open hyperlinks in incoming mails. After ~3 days of looking for a fix, I found it in AndrzejL's Re: Fixing Skype / Thunderbird / Google Earth connection with Firefox on PCLinuxOS-Forums. This is to publicise AndrzejL's technique because I had found it early in the search for a solution and dismissed it as similar to others and/or not closely related to the problem.

AIUI AndrzejL's technique applies when there are no entries for HTTP and...

Email disaster with Opera, Plan B: Thunderbird

Posted 12-30-2012 at 09:38 AM by flshope

After loosing my email history to some failure associated with the Opera email client, I have not yet decided to attempt a recovery using Opera. If it happened once, it will happen again. I prefer Opera as a browser, but I have soured on its email client.

So, as I mentioned previously, I decided to implement Thunderbird as my primary email client. Thunderbird has some official status with Ubuntu in the sense that it is a part of the standard Ubuntu installation and they provide reliable...

New-Make ready for hyperjump and KDE Menu's How-To

This is somewhat advanced stuff but.. maybe not. It might also appeal to anyone who has a little talent for tinkering who needs to set up a KDE menu for an application that doesn't have one. See warning below, however.

Today's features
  • Last of the first generation new-make installer/uninstallers (probably).
  • Usage example that installs and uninstalls a dummy application and icons into the KDE menus.

Book Collection: Other

Posted 12-29-2012 at 03:59 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 09-03-2014 at 03:55 PM by rocket357

I have a standard Book Collection of Computer/Programming/Network/etc... stuff, but today it occurred to me that I don't have such a list for my other main interests: philosophy and mathematics (with a bias towards any book that combines these topics with computers =). So here it is, the list of books I want (don't own *all* of them, yet, but I'm working on that bit) (the list isn't complete yet...far from it. Suggestions are more than welcome!):
  • Philosophy
    1. Introduction to Mathematical

File conversion script

Posted 12-29-2012 at 10:04 AM by Snark1994
Updated 12-29-2012 at 10:10 AM by Snark1994

A handy script I put together to automatically convert between file formats based on file extension, in an easily extensible manner:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash

#Conversion rules:
# commands["extension_from extension_to"]="convert_command"
# INFILE and OUTFILE in the conversion command are replaced
# with the appropriate filenames

declare -A commands
commands["wav mp3"]="ffmpeg -i INFILE OUTFILE"
