EDIT 2012-02-03:
In Debian I just discovered "duff". A tool to find duplicate files
---


All files with their md5sum
Code:
find . -type f -exec md5sum '{}' ';' > pics_complete.txt
Lists with only md5sum, once with duplicates removed
Code:
cat pics_complete.txt | sed -r "s|^(.*) .*|\1|"| sort > pics_sorted.txt
cat pics_complete.txt | sed -r "s|^(.*) .*|\1|"| sort -u > pics_sorted-uniq.txt
md5sum...

Hello, I am Dr. Eliza.

I was thinking about the old game Eliza the therapist, that has been around forever. Might be interesting to update the code with a bit more sophisticated code that used AI. Then of course you have to install sphinx and festival or epeak. If you do all that then you could make a paper mache head using servos to control the mouth and other parts for some interesting fun. Ten times better than the toy on the Craig Fergy show.

Start 18.11.2010
Hello there,
I have an old computer and try to install a quick operating system on it (run today with Win98 and some patches from Win98SE for making runnning the USB WLAN adapter).
I installed PuppyLinux, but the net access was too long (ndiswrapper with the AVM Fritz WLAN usb adapter worked fine).
Now I installed Damnsmalllinux as frugal version on the HDD.

Thunar custom actions including "root terminal here" without gksudo

Posted 11-18-2010 at 10:54 AM by catkin
Updated 11-20-2010 at 01:36 AM by catkin (Changed title to mention gksudo)

Here's a way to implement Thunar custom actions using rxvt unicode (urxvt) but could be adapted to other terminal emulators. It has been used to provide:
  • Terminal here
  • root terminal here
  • vi
  • vi as root
Optionally it allows the custom action to set background colour and a fullscreen window.

So last night i installed CentOS 5.5.
Installed fine, booted up, spent a few hours trying to set up my dual monitor display to no avail.
With CentOS each time you make a change to the display you have to restart X window system. Which is a pain is the a$$ by the way.
So after a few hours of fiddling with Xorg files, and seeing that CentOS looks a lot like wi98 as far as graphics, i booted back to my fedora and erased what i had just install.

Afterwards, i tried install...
