First 15 minutes on F15!!!

Well.. I wanted to share my feel when I went live on F15. yeah!

Here goes how I was literally lovelocked with Gnome 3.0 and F15 on the day I installed it.

Phenomenal GUI. Am pretty sure M$ will leech its glossy touch. F15 with G3.0 is gonna lure lotta gui-freaks to Linux.

Though the GUI looked so gr8 with oh-is-this-really-linux kinda transitions, I felt a lil hard to figure out how to configure static IP for my WiFi adapter. Well. Perhaps FC15/G3 could

How To Send & Receive Files on Blackberry [BB<->Phone; BB<->PC]

Hi,

I know you might wonder why I'm posting this here. But I have been trying to do this for some hours and finally got it. But before then, I searched the web and could not find an easier way to send all kinds of files (texts, media, even unknown files). I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, using Blueman 1.21-4 bluetooth manager and I did this with a BB Curve 8520 (but this method will surely work for any bluetooth software, device, phone or PC).

In Linux, after setting up &...

Gaming in Linux; slackware 13.37

Posted 08-17-2011 at 10:23 AM by linuxpokernut

Back in 2008, I started playing Eve Online. Its one hell of a game, some call it "spreadsheets online" because you wind up needing a spreadsheet to play. It's the worlds largest single shard game server. And back in December of '08, it had a linux client.

It was not a true stand alone client, but it was a Cedega crossover. When you installed it it installed the Cedega engine with just what you need to play. Back then the game had 2 graphics options, "classic" and...

gtsh: how to use Google Translate without touching a web browser

Posted 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode
Updated 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode ("Transhlate"? WTF? :p)

I present "gtsh" (Google Translate for the SHell), a tiny(!) shell script that acts as a frontend to Google Translate:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
if test -z $3; then
	echo "Usage: $0 \"<str>\" <lang1> <lang2>"
	echo "Translates string \"<str>\" from <lang1> to <lang2>"
	echo "(CLI frontend to Google Translate)"
else
	wget -qO- "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/language/translate?v=1.0&q=$1&langpair=$2|${3:-$3}"

Linux 0.01 reminiscence

Posted 07-31-2011 at 07:46 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags hacking, linux

Yesterday, just like always I was slacking around the net and decided to look into Linux development history. So, I took 0.01 sources and started looking through it. Even without good knowledge of i386 and C, this code looks just really good. I'm happy Linus actually made it to this state. Well, he was born a real hardcore hacker, there's no way he couldn't make it
Just looking at these sources is a pleasure.
I also found this thread, to help you building/running Linux 0.01 easier:...
