Thanks, Sonny Bono

Interestingly,the Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998 (also termed the "Mickey Mouse Protection Act") which extended copyright by 20 years, was named after Sonny Bono:

Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act

He didn't actually get the bill passed, but it was named in memory of him. Reportedly, it was his opinion that copyright should last forever. But the CTEA bill compromised with a "mere" twenty year extension.

Sigh... just imagine...

Graphics mode

Posted 02-06-2012 at 06:14 AM by mail2vivek1

Dear All,

This question may look foolish. Still i want to ask why Linux does not start in graphical mode while accessing it through putty?

I googled and found xmanager is an option if we are accessing linux using putty. It can be kind of workaround to access the linux in GUI

Please give your thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

Keep a "secret" file open

Posted 02-05-2012 at 11:13 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

There is an interesting thing about the way file deletion works in POSIX systems like Linux: When you call a command like "rm" on a file, ultimately you are calling the unlink() function on that file. the unlink() function does indeed remove the file name from the file system; however, the actual file itself is not removed from the file system until the last open file descriptor to that file is closed. (see UNLINK(2))

This means that, effectively, you can keep any file you...

Late xmas

Friend of mine she gave me an all in one printer, but it needs major repair. Found the scanner driver for it, but I did not want to install that mess. She alo gave me a fax/scanner/low duty printer. It was low on ink, but it makes a superb color scanner. Remembered that I had some scanners that at one time did not work with linux. Two were usb. Tested one and it worked fine with B/W. Could not find the power block for the other one. I will look around. parallel port scanners are going into a robot...
