It’s too long to type everything again, so I’ll just copypasta the email I sent to Dad. Also, while I do know the file is really “fs tab” for “file systems table”, I still read it the way I did the first time I saw it, which is f-stab. That was a long time ago, […]

The primary purpose of this is so that I remember that the really fast image viewer I discovered in Puppy is called Viewnior. I didn’t like the Eye of Mate that came with my desktop OS, and whatever I used to use in Gnome (and liked) starts slowly in Mate, so I found a package […]

How many GNU/Linux users are needed to change a light bulb? 1 to post a thread in a mailing list telling the bulb has burnt. 1 to suggest to try to turn the lamp on through command lines. 1 to complain that the user broke the thread. 1 to ask what new bulb will he […]

It’s Monday morning, and I did this on Friday, but it was such an adventure that it needs acknowledgement. I have more catching up to do, so I’ll fill in details later…possibly. Oh, my…between my forgetting stupid stuff (like making the gateway IP when it…wasn’t), and Debian being Debian, and Hylafax being highly configurable, […]

I have had gFTP installed for…for practically as long as I’ve used Linux, which is about 10 years. Different distros, different computers, but I’ve always just copied the contents of my /home, or simply put it on a separate partition in the first place. I have passwords saved in gFTP, but I have absolutely no […]

Technically more Windows stuff than Linux stuff, but it bollocksed up Linux, so I guess it counts. Anyway, for some reason, a week or two ago, I needed to boot to Windows (Plex gives me fits, updating new content), and I forgot that Windows had been trying to check the HDD for…forever, I guess. I […]

I tried everything but the combination that does work, and I can never remember the goddamned thing, so…Alt + Super, right click. Jesus, why won’t that stay in my head!?

sudo hddtemp /dev/sd?  So I won’t forget (again). Still don’t know WTF is wrong with the Sensors ACPI temperature display; it’s apparently not using lm-sensors or even sensors, which (AFAIK) is specified by the script, so I have no idea where it’s getting the information, but it doesn’t make any sense for it to show […]

I’d be able to retain this information for more than the time it takes to actually process the video, and wouldn’t have to look it up every goddamned time. ffmpeg -i <filename.mpg> -deinterlace -ar 44100 -r 25 -qmin 3 -qmax 6 <filename.flv>

If I forget one more time… When I upgrade one computer and not the other, or the phone, and get a denied connection with SSH, it’s because I forgot (again) to delete the known_hosts in ~/.ssh. So I can find this: hosts SSH sftp connection denied connect upgrade known_hosts
