First blog, First Linux, 32 years of computing!

Posted 12-02-2008 at 11:30 PM by DarkFlame

Being that I've done about 32 yrs of computing, & I'm delving into Linux for the 1st time (& using OpenSuSE), & that this website has been so helpful to me, I thought I'd blog to post my thoughts about this journey.

1st, I'll say I've always thought Blogs were trivial & Bloggers had inflated egos. Me thinking my thoughts are important to someone else is a prime example of my own over-inflated ego. So, it is doubtful I'll allow any comments on my Blog, tho I'll read...

Script to require password change at next login

Posted 12-02-2008 at 05:11 PM by camh

Hi all,

Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [ "$(whoami)" != 'root' ]; then
   echo "This program must be run as root"
   exit 1;
 elif [ -z $1 ]; then

Differencies between OpenOffice.org under Windows and Linux

Posted 12-02-2008 at 03:53 PM by dr_agon

applies to OpenOffice.org, Linux, Windows, Python, XML

Recently I try to develop modules for already existing, big project using Python and OpenOffice.org. The application is meant to work both under Linux and Windows. Unfortunately, it is not easy.
  1. Python-UNO bridge to OpenOffice, which is part of OO suite, is different. Under Linux it works flawlessly with the fairly new Python v. 2.5. Under Windows it works only with supplied Python v. 2.3.4. It wouldn't be so bad if recent wxWidgets
