The All New Proprietary Software vs. FOSS MegaSuperEntry

Posted 09-29-2010 at 01:11 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

You could consider this the boxing ring of my blog: the place to flame away about FOSS (if you're on its side) or proprietary software (if you're on its side).

Please, however: Nothing risqué. No profanity (even if disguised), no images promoting violence against another member, and absolutely NO MALICIOUS CODE, especially if for Linux (and for Windows even, thanks to Jeremy). LQ is to remain a safe, comfortable, bully- and troll-free place for Linux users, and this blog is no exception....

You know you are a complete Linux nutter when... ( & Google/Wikipedia elinks search scripts )

You have one computer on the left. A second older computer sits to your right, sshed into the first.

You play a game fullscreen on the first, while running scanmem on the other. Who ever needed multiple monitor outputs?

I only realised what I was doing when I took a few steps back. Anyone passing by would probably think I'm cracking into someone's computer whilst playing some MineCraft.

+1 multitasking

While I'm here, here are two useful scripts...

Kate indentation

Posted 09-27-2010 at 06:36 AM by robertvi

One of the most annoying things for a programmer is a text editor which is trying to automatically
indent the source code in a different way than the coder wants. I use an editor called kate from the KDE project, and I'm currently trying to figured out what the heck is going on with automatic indentation, and thought I would document the process in the hope of helping someone else avoid this problem. I'm using Kate version 3.4.2. [Jump to the summary at the end if you're in a hurry]

Hi everybody,

Long time! .... Hope you've all been good. :P

Just want to share a new Linux Bash commands wallpaper with all you Linux fans out there. It's a good way to keep your codes close without flipping through the books or searching the web or something.
