Browsers still re-fetch pages when using back button

Posted 04-11-2012 at 12:42 PM by Skaperen

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.

A surprising opensource PDF editor.

Posted 04-10-2012 at 12:38 AM by stretchedthin

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.

Old laptops love Linux - new ones as well

Posted 04-09-2012 at 11:46 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on more than a dozen (previously 2) own laptops and have installations running on 6 (previously 3) others.

One is a 7 year old siemens-nixdorf laptop used by a retired person for internet e-mail and a bit of card games. He loves it for the speed and ease of use. Especially the order of the programs in the very simple groups such as "Internet" "Multimedia" etc.
