How to remove selected messages left on the POP3 server.

Posted 10-13-2008 at 04:46 PM by dr_agon

applies to: KMail, Evolution, Perl, POP3, mail client

Unfortunatelly my favourite mail client (Kmail) cannot leave messages on the POP3 server while retrieving them and delete them later, eg. when they are moved to 'Trash" folder (like Thunderbird). The same applies to Evolution. Of course I know there are IMAP servers, but that's not the solution I like most. I also did not want to periodically erase all messages left on POP3 server.

CVS diff default behavior

Posted 10-13-2008 at 03:55 PM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, cvs, diff

For example to compare with newest revisions:
cvs diff --brief -D now

Xubuntu is a complete GNU/Linux based operating system with an Ubuntu base. It is lighter on system requirements and tends to be more efficient than Ubuntu with GNOME or KDE, since it uses the Xfce Desktop environment, which makes it ideal for old or low-end machines, thin-client networks, or for those who would like to get more performance out of their hardware.

Posted 10-11-2008 at 05:18 PM by rbkumaran

Byzanz is a free opensource GNOME based Command-Line utility to capture desktop recording software for linux. This should probably be the coolest command-line utility that I have seen in recent days. Byzanz records your desktop session to an animated GIF. You can record your entire screen, a single window, an arbitrary region or even follow the cursor.
