"convert source code into bin file"

To find out what a cray-pointer is in Fortran compilers I suggest you consult the Fortran documentation.

Have fun,

Highlight Domain & Subdomain for SSL websites in Firefox

Posted 05-27-2009 at 05:22 PM by rbkumaran

When you visit a Secure website in Firefox chances are that the FavIcon for the website is replaced with a Green bar with the details of the company. This is because of the default properties in Firefox to display detailed information of the website from the Extended Validation Certificate on the website. However, if the website doesn’t host a Extended Validation certificate then the website URL (link) in the address bar is not highlighted or in otherwords shows as a normal website URL.Read more

Is there a pattern?

Posted 05-27-2009 at 05:11 PM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

I have just looked through another Windows vs. Linux discussion and got the same strange feeling that something is wrong with it. Next I thought I have got the pattern.

Long ago one of such discussions contained a parable like this: "Linux is like a car you can examine under the hood and tweak, Microsoft is like a car with the hood you cannot open". Each and every Microsoft vs. Linux discussion seams to be based on that. This parable is wrong.

How to get ath5k working on Jaunty with Compat-wireless and a self-compiled kernel

Posted 05-27-2009 at 02:22 AM by sridhar11

I used to have some trouble while setting up my Atheros PCI card on Ubuntu Linux 9.04. It worked natively on Ubuntu 8.04, where it was detected as ath0. I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 whereby I noticed my wireless PCI card didn’t work natively anymore. Someone suggested me to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 Jaunty, and I did that immediately. After the system upgrade I noticed again that my wireless device was gone in Ubuntu 9.04. When I ran iwconfig I didn’t see wlan0 or ath0 anymore.

German university to equip students with netbooks

Posted 05-27-2009 at 01:48 AM by bitpicker (Bitpicker's Blog: Random musings and rants)

The university of Paderborn in Germany has announced that they will equip all new students beginning their studies in the upcoming winter term with free netbooks. These netbooks will be purchased with money collected from outside sponsors. Students will get to decide whether they want their netbook equipped with Windows XP or Linux.

I am going to keep my eyes peeled for further news on this, especially how it is going to work out, how many students choose Linux and so on.
