Simple Mass File Renamer & Deleter [Python]

Posted 09-17-2008 at 01:01 PM by ghostdog74

I am so bored today, that i started creating a command line batch file renamer, tested on Linux with Python 2.4.
Some of the simple things it can do is:
1) Change upper case to lower case and vice versa
2) Change file names by pattern substitution
3) Change file names by number sequence
4) Insert pattern in front of files
5) Insert pattern at the end of files.
6) Simple sort by number.
7) Manual revert of changed files.
8) Deletion...

About five months ago, I decided to for my CCNA. And I decided to use to train for it. Preplogic has a fantastic program for networking wannabes (and networking already bes). For those of you only interested in the technology side of things, the CCNA is a decently high level certification from Cisco: Cisco Certified Networking Associate. My career in the networking field has been short for many but lengthy for me. Most of my 4 years have been spent as a Jr Network Admin at a small...

Last month I wrote about the crossroads I was at in my career. Well, I decided it was time to take some action. Since I’m new to certifications, I talked to some friends in the field and did some looking around online, and decided to pick up PMP video training from PREPLOGIC.COM (here: I love it. I bought the PMP practice exam from PrepLogic, too but I’ve really just started looking at that.

#howmany for grub 2

I don't really like the default behavior of Grub in Ubuntu to continue to add all the kernel updates to my grub boot menu. I never go back and use old kernels (except by mistake) and it just crowds up my boot menu.

In the past, I have used the #howmany option in /boot/grub/menu.lst to limit this to only the most recent kernel. Now that I am using Karmic Koala though, this option no longer appears to be available due to the fact that the default bootloader is now Grub 2.

The myth of user-friendliness.

Posted 05-10-2011 at 11:37 PM by TobiSGD

In this post I want to point out my view on the so called user-friendliness.

I often read in posts on this forums things like: "If you want a more user-friendly OS then go for Ubuntu or Mint.", "Debian is less user-friendly than Ubuntu." or "Slackware is not a user-friendly distribution."

But is that true? I think not, at least not in general.

At first I have to define what user-friendliness in my eyes is. Assuming that I...
