MAC Mania

Today I was having mac address problems. My corp network runs a mac filtered domain so in order to avoid the hassle of contacting IT (which are stupid) I simply copied the macs from other machines and issued them to my servers (I'm a technical head for my department). Well I didn't save the MAC address and the server was shutdown when we moved it which blew away the mac. What did I do? Search the logs for every MAC address ever.

find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -iH '\([0-9a-f]\{2\}[:-]\)\{5\}[0-9a-f]\{2\}\|[0-9a-f]\{12\}'

Set User Agent String in Google Chrome

Posted 04-06-2011 at 11:59 AM by lupusarcanus (Lone Wolf)

google-chrome -user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Arch Linux x86_64; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/10.0.648.204 Safari/534.16"
Replace 'Arch' with your distro (there maybe small differences in the version numbers -- disregard this). This obviously needs to be ran from the command line somehow. Most of the big DE's support this.

First Entry

Posted 04-06-2011 at 08:50 AM by stephen.sheldon

Up until the launch of Debian 6.0 I had been a Ubuntu fan.. but as time has gone by there has been less and less for me to figure out in it. Whilst needing a Linux that does everything the family wants from the machines, I also need something to cut my teeth and sharpen my brain on (as limited as my brain is lol). So when Debian Squeeze came out I gave it a bash.
It installed without any issues, just needed the multimedia codecs, and of course the nvidia driver loaded. I have found the packages...
