So I discovered a cool little trick with konsole. Using dcop, you can open new terminals as a new session (tab) in an existing konsole window and then send commands to said sessions (and even rename the sessions to match what commands you sent to it).

But, there's only one problem. I'm running...

Root your G1 and add cyanogenmod

So last year I posted a blog about why my wife should let me spend our rent money on an android dev phone. Well as it turned out I ended up waiting a few months for my sprint contract to be up and jumped ship to Tmobile. Android is simply the best thing since sliced bread, it has everything I could need and then some. That being said there are multiple reasons why I rooted it. For one you can run full distro's, I tried out Debian and it was awesome. There are other interesting things to do such...

What's wrong with the terminal?

Posted 10-04-2009 at 09:59 AM by DragonSlayer48DX

[RANT] I get a little tired sometimes of hearing people complain about using the terminal, so here's my story:

I had to open the [B]Run[/B] dialog box, and [I]type a lengthy string of commands and parameters[/I] to fix the problem! Imagine that! So for all of you who think Windows is 'CLI-free', guess...
