    Automatically update flashplayer-plugin

    Thank you for posting this, jere21. One question: why not just use cron? I understand systemd might be nice for debugging complex situations, but for something as trivial as this, cron works just as well and is much simpler, no?

    This is especially easy on a Debian system where one can simply create a shell script in /etc/cron.daily/ and know that it'll be run once a day without needing to enable any craziness.

    Code:
    echo '/usr/sbin/update-flashplugin-nonfree --install' > update-flash
    chmod 755 update-flash
    sudo mv update-flash /etc/cron.daily/
    Cut and paste the above into a terminal, and flash will be updated every night around 3am.

    funambol: Sync contacts and calendar

    I totally gave up on funambol. But anyway, looks as if you were trying to access it remotely. I'd try it locally first. Good luck!

    funambol: Sync contacts and calendar

    I'm getting to STEP 7. I verify that Funambol is running. But when I go to the web browser and enter IP:8080 I get Tomcat. But IP:8080/webdemo results in a 404 error.

    Anyway you can help me with this please?

    duckduckgo - search engine without tracking and search bubble

    I have been enjoying duckduckgo... but I find my self going back to google for their image search. Now if only there was a good replacement that did the same thing there.

    I use md5sum for comparing the pictures, so I can only tell which files are 100% identical. What you suggest would require an application that detects the contents of pictures. I assume that would need a lot computing power.

    Sorting pictures, removing duplicates

    nice tip... I never would have thought this would be a problem... but then, I treat my pictures much like my music files and put them all in one directory... If I have duplicate scenes, it's because they are cropped differently or re-sized.
