Shifting Gears (take 2)

Posted 06-13-2014 at 08:18 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 06-13-2014 at 08:28 PM by rocket357

If you follow my blog you'll know that a few months ago I said goodbye to my Linux Engineering position at Rackspace and joined Amazon Web Services as an AWS Support Engineer. It's been long enough that I feel I have my feet on the ground and I am qualified to give a status update.

Holy crap, Amazon. Go big or go home, they say. I'd love to give some cliche' about "if you work at Amazon you've already gone big", but I'm not even certain I could say that. The problems...

Bash conversion of Opera sessions to "netscape standard" bookmarks

Posted 06-11-2014 at 03:34 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

You run it on the session folder (.win files, usually on ~/.opera/sessions/), and it will generate a single html file with all the bookmarks (taken from the last visited URL for any given tab in that session, hence the file/variable "lasturl" -- the session files record some "history", but this isn't being exported/converted here), and coded "subfolders" for each session file, with the filenames as titles. Every time it runs it rewrites this generated html file....

Suggestions

Posted 06-08-2014 at 12:04 PM by rokytnji

This is my take on new Linux users migrating from Windows for what ever reasons. Usually any more when I see the word of suggestion in a thread title. I avoid it like the plague now.

The reasoning in my mind is as follows.

One looses their living abode due to some disaster that leaves them homeless.

You show up and offer living quarters for free with no strings attached.

A day or two later they show up on your doorstep and complain why...

Exton|Defender SRS (in three versions) – now about version 140607 with Mate 1.8.1

NEWS 140607 re. Exton|Defender based on Slackware 14.1

I’ve made a new version of Exton|Defender 64 bit based on Slackware 14.1. It uses Mate 1.8.1 as Desktop environment and kernel 3.14.5-x86_64-exton. The Mate Desktop environment is not included in Slackware’s official repositories. To be able to install Mate in Exton|Defender I had to add Salix‘s repositories. The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment...

Restore some of chrome/ium performance by ditching extensions

Posted 06-05-2014 at 08:42 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 06-05-2014 at 08:44 PM by the dsc

It may be obvious at hindsight but took me a while to try it.

Chrome/ium already has the advantage of being able to enable/disable extensions without restart, so it's really a good practice, compared with Firefox. You can sometimes enable an extension just while you're using it.

I think the particular extension that was causing most of the slowness was/is Tampermonkey, which is sort of a scriptish/greasemonkey for Chrome. I think that there may be some bug with it because...
