Since joining I have not posted anything. But wanted to now share that I am starting on a special project named project: "Cody". Currently still in preproduction and concept, the story is about a dog going on an adventure.

Exporting / importing Chrome/Chromium's search engines through command line + sqlite3

Posted 04-08-2017 at 04:01 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I don't know anything about it, except that it seems to have worked without problem:

OK . . . you can do this on a Mac (or a Linux box, I presume) by manipulating a SQLite database. Presumably you could do the same thing on a PC with a command line tool euqivalent to sqlite3 that's available in a *nix environment.

Here's the steps (with Chrome quit in each case):

(1) Open a terminal; get to the Chrome application data "Default" directory.

NEWS 20170407 about exGENT
I’ve made yet a new version (20170407) of exGENT based on Gentoo Linux. It uses Xfce 4.12.1 and LXQt 0.11.0 Desktop environments and kernel 4.10.4. It is for the 64 bit architecture. I call it exGENT 2017 Xfce4/LXQt Live DVD. It replaces version 20170331. The ISO file is of 2620 MB due to the fact that this version has a lot of packages pre-installed. Despite this exGENT version 170407 runs surprisingly fast from DVD or USB. Even in VirtualBox and VMware. Faster...

wifi is now really working.

Posted 04-04-2017 at 09:13 AM by peonuser

After doing some research, I was able to make my original rpi work as an access point. Perfect match for my old nexus 7 2012.Had to go to jessie and change the wifi driver. Adafruit had a good tutorial on how to set it up. Went on to set up a simple lamp with linux apache2 php and mariadb. Installed the gui and then installed xrdp and it works great too.

Now to do the same for an rpi zero so I can carry it around in my pocket or thereabouts. Another "InTRAnet of things"...
