Happy Mothers' Day

Posted 05-09-2010 at 12:55 PM by Mr-Bisquit

I haven't seen my mother in a long time. She's an immigrant that still doesn't have her citizenship yet. God knows how long it will be before she won't be needing that ugly pink "green card" she has in her wallet. Even though she's not pure Spanish- and not Mexican Spanish- she did wish me Cinco de Mayo- and sent me an e-card.
Mental problems run in every generation of her family and a few of us- me, my brothers and sisters- have them also. I can't hate her for this, it wouldn't...

Endurance

Posted 05-08-2010 at 06:43 PM by Mr-Bisquit

I live on the Chesapeake Peninsula about 1 mile from the Chesapeake bay.
My goal is to make to the Atlantic Ocean at Ocean City, Maryland and back in a day.
I know that I can go sixty miles in five hours. Using this and the amount I tire plus water loss and energy requirements I probably will hit a "wall" at seventy-five to eighty miles. My current best travel rates are twenty miles in eighty minutes and twenty-five miles in one hundred minutes.

Lost in KDE

Posted 05-08-2010 at 03:29 AM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

I am a Slackware current user. I prefer XFCE, but whenever there is a KDE update I visit KDE. Normally, thanks to the nature of glitches I run over, I do not stay long; this time I just looked at where the notification icons appear.

That is called System Tray, but in order to verify the name I had to go to Add Widgets in Panel Options. That displays a band with widgets and scrolling buttons on each end of it. If I move the mouse directly to the triangle in a scrolling button, it is...

Strange Behaviour.

Posted 05-07-2010 at 05:55 AM by __raHulk

Hi Friends,

Recently I came upon a new discovery in bash shell that commands which expect input <paths> as parameters like ls, rm works even if you type multiple front slashes
eg.
rm /foo/bar/file.txt
works even if we type it as
rm /foo//bar/file.txt
or even
ls /foo/////bar///file or to my surprise
even ///foo/bar/file.txt works. Its a strange behaviour to me as I wonder why it happened. Could anyone explain it more deeply??...

Boot from Network via PXE (Eng. Version)

--THE IDEA--


1. using root_fs for i386 we have made before to be able booted from network.
2. root_fs can be booted from Network with Boot From Network facility in BIOS.
3. We will use PXE Technology.

--UNDERSTANDING PXE--

PXE is ... you can read it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preboot...on_Environment.

There are several BIOS that have been supported by PXE,...
