Finally have an otg cable for the Nexus 7. Time for some productivity.

Using the Nexus 7 as a monitor for the Raspberry Pi.

Want to take a linux distribution for the handicapped and see if I can install it without a monitor.

Definition of Insanity

Posted 02-20-2013 at 05:09 PM by flshope

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, what do you call doing the same thing over and over and GETTING a different result? A computer operating system! Linux, Windows, ..., whatever.

Automating Slackware's Package Management

In my previous blog, I explained how even if you are only installing a couple of files on the system, there were advantages to creating a Slackware package to do so. The example I gave was the files I needed to disable nouveau and use nvidia instead.

This policy paid dividends when I upgraded to Slackware 14.0. The nvidia drivers wouldn't work and I faced the task of upgrading them for 14.0 (which meant remembering stuff I had done 18 months ago). Before doing that, it seemed prudent...

sync folder script

Posted 02-18-2013 at 09:19 PM by ted_chou12

Hi, not posting for quite a while. I was thinking of synchronizing my portable music mplayers directory with the music directory on the server. But I dont want all the music files, if all the files were synchronized then I would have no space on the player. So I was trying to come up with how I want it to be.
1) I want to synchronize by modify date of the LATEST, that means latest files come first in priority.
2) I want to limit a total file size on the files. NOT the number of files...
