Disabling Speed Dial (allows a blank page at Start-up)
  1. In the Opera address bar, type in about:config or opera:config.
  2. User Prefs → Speed Dial State and set it to 3 (disabled).
  3. Save (bottom of page).
Now can get a blank page at start-up by Preferences → General and setting Start-up to "Start with Speed Dial".

Panel at top with text instead of icons
  1. Make the panel bar visible (F4 toggles visibility).
  2. Menu → Appearance (F12) → Toolbars
  3. Click

inverse graphics objects printing (with text printing okay)

Posted 02-13-2012 at 05:15 AM by Yury_T

For those of you who's getting inverse (black in place of white and vice versa) graphics objects in your printouts in an environment similar to "out-of-the-box" slackware 13.37 on 64-bit platform (so, ghostscript 9.00):

In Linux, each file or directory name (or more generally, pathname component) is just a string of bytes. It always ends with the C end-of-string mark, ASCII NUL: a zero. Value 47, ASCII /, is also reserved for use as a separator between pathnames.

Bash can read ASCII NUL separated data using read -d "" variable. It will, however, remove leading and trailing characters that match IFS, and return false (nonzero status) if the input does not have a final NUL. This applies to...

Hero Honda Splendor fork oil change

Posted 02-11-2012 at 01:36 AM by catkin

The easiest way to do this job is to remove the drain plugs but the part that they screw into within the slider may turn. If that happens a special tool is required to hold it. The procedure described here avoids that danger; it does not need any special tools.

Note on terms: the fork tube (a.k.a. stanchion) is attached to the yokes (a.k.a. triple tree) which pivot in the frame while the slider (a.k.a tube) holds the wheel. The least ambiguous terms, "stanchion" and "slider",...
