Helping out a FOSS brother.

Posted 06-17-2010 at 08:31 AM by rich_c

I overheard my managers at work discussing a CV (Resume for our transatlantic friends.) that had arrived for their attention in odf format. They were clearly perplexed as to what to do with it, suggestions including opening it in notepad... Fortunately for the person who submitted it, I was able to offer to convert it for them. Naturally, I also expressed my approval for anyone who submits their CV in an open format!

Cheap Keyboards and Mice

Posted 06-16-2010 at 10:05 PM by disturbed1

The keyboards for my main PCs are quite old. Purchased sometime between 1999 and 2001. They are not the cleanest of things, some ink on the letters have worn off, and a few keys have become a little difficult to press at times. The oldest one is a Logitec multimedia keyboard, the other is a nice HP model with multimedia keys from the only OEM PC I've ever owned. They still work, they just have years of dust and dirt build up.

This got me thinking about the reason I still have these...

Life n times of banditman

Posted 06-16-2010 at 03:37 PM by banditman

After several distros (well nearly Every distro!) being tested by myself I have come to settle on Slackware Ive tried the rolling release distros sidux and Arch both excellent in their own way but in the end I had to go for a low maintenance highly reliable system that does not need regular updating. Even tried Gentoo but way too slow installing new software, so in the end it had to be Slack!

alternative to rm command

Posted 06-16-2010 at 09:00 AM by ultimate_linux

i've seen many users deleting files and reporting how to recover them.
instead of recovering i've thought of redirecting the files deleted to,that it might be helpful to recover them.
here's how i do it.

1.take a variable,for example:TRASHPATH.
2.assign the exact path of trash to that variable.
most likely,trash path will be /home/username/.Trash.'s the code just paste this into your .bashrc file.
