I have scripts for copying and moving to a different directory, I have scripts to open files in gedit as me or as root, a script for searching, a script to enqueue files in Audacious, a script to replace the spaces in a file name with “-” (I hate spaces in file names because they […]

I was sure I had this somewhere, but couldn’t find it, so I’ll put it here where I can find it, and if I can manage not to clutter up my Jaunty with stuff I installed “just to see what it does”, I’ll be able to use it for Karmic in October unless I decide […]

It’s not as pretty as Time Machine, but fuck pretty–I care that it does what I want it to do, and that it doesn’t cost me a fortune to do it. Back In Time does what I want, and doesn’t cost anything at all. It’s really just a GUI frontend for rsync, but since I […]

I’ll lose this if I don’t put it here, and since the first installation command returned a complaint (error) from bzr, this is the one that worked (okay, after I’d installed bzr, since I hadn’t had a need for it since I upgraded to Jaunty). The icon is über-ugly, but I can disable its showing […]

At first, I was satisified to have iPhone access without connecting via USB cable. All I had to do was fire up a terminal, type “iphone-mount” and enter the phone’s root password…twice. Unmount…type iphone-umount, enter root’s password, and that’s it. I could have changed it to passwordless when I first set it up, but I […]

I fucked it up somehow when I was transferring old /home files to new /home (none of them was actually .dmrc), and tried the chmod that had worked way back when that was an Ubuntu issue and not a Lisa-broke-it issue, but to no avail. Renaming it, then later deleting it in an attempt to […]

So far, I don’t actually hate the new notification system as some people do, but if I decide at some point in time that I do…. gconftool -s –type bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false Do not try to “fix” a wifi connection when you’re as tired as I was this afternoon. My connection dropped out of the […]

There…I can live without the weather on this one for now, so I’m uploading it here lest I ever again forget to save a copy before wiping it out. I’m told you don’t need to start it with a script anymore (in Hardy and Intrepid, it would start and quit if you didn’t delay), but […]

To disable Jaunty’s stupid warning dialog when a program started by Terminal is still running: gconf-editor, apps > gnome-terminal > global > uncheck confirm_window_close That will also disable the warning if you have multiple tabs, but I don’t give a damn–that warning is very Windows-y and annoying as hell. I already know that closing a […]

I love Stanza. It’s not only a way to combine two of my favourite things–my iPhone and books–but also a way I can lie in bed and read that requires even less energy than holding open a book. The phone is smaller, lighter even than some paperbacks, I can see the whole screen without holding […]
