Since last week, I have continued using synergy between my desktop and my laptop. I did get tired of running it manually from the command line every time I wanted to load it up. Because of this, I wrote some bash scripts. To start the server and client wasn't rocket science.
To start the synergy server, this is my bash script:
An object database like db4o simply has more to offer to object-oriented developers, in today's object-oriented world, than its relational cousins.
Many so-called podcatchers have shown up to help users download podcasts on request. Most of them are great applications, but what do you do when you want all of your podcasts downloaded automatically and synced to your MP3 player?
Konqueror is one of my favourite file managers on any platform (add OS X’s Finder column view and it would be the best). Why? Well, amongs many other features, it has a view called File Size View, that allows you to see how much space folders and files are taking up visually, and makes it really easy to see what files need cleaning up and deleting.
By default, most pre-packaged apache installations come with full information leakage, so if you telnet to port 80 on your webserver you can check, just type in the GET / HTTP/1.1 line, then hit enter twice
Since our good friend liquidat is taking a vacation, on a business trip, or having a kidney removed, I thought I'd try to brief folks on the latest KDE commit digest.
When Linux first made its way onto the radar in the mid-1990s, one of its most touted advantages was its ability to give ageing computers a new lease on life.
At the time many people found the newest versions of Microsoft Windows and Office demanded more power than their systems could deliver. Linux, on the other hand, could run on the smell of an oily rag.
This month's Linux Gazette is up and ready to read.

Scanning a network remotely is not always an easy task. It is even more difficult when different operating systems are involved. Here's how you can scan an entire tcp/ip range of Windows computers from a Kubuntu Linux box. This is very basic and serves as an example but it is usefull for learning which computers have mp3's or pr0n when they shouldn't have.
One of the first converts to Oracle's support for Linux has revealed the public backlash it has endured since their decision to drop Red Hat.
Melbourne company Opes Prime Stockbroking told ZDNet Australia that in the weeks following its announcement to adopt Oracle Linux, upset Linux enthusiasts phoned, e-mailed and wrote about the company online to complain at the decision.
I have been keeping up with most of the reviews for the new beta release of Ubuntu Feisty with great interest. As a full-time user of Ubuntu Dapper and Edgy, I’m, to say the least, "comfortable" in all aspects of getting the most from my Linux experience.
If, like me, you find that the majority of applications outside of the fuzzy, feel good realm of Windows do not inherently recognize .wma file format, then this script help you out.
Open up a file named wma2mp3 in your favorite editor, copy and paste the following code, then save. Don't forget to 'chmod +x wma2mp3' when you're finished so you can execute the script.
The American Dental Association announced Friday that they are suing both the Free Software Foundation and the Linux Foundation over the use of the acronym FLOSS.

This Filipino-based Linux distribution, initiated by the Open Source Group in the Philippines’ Advanced Science and Technology Institute in October 2001, hasn’t received a lot of press (in the US, at least). I just first heard of it via DistroWatch announcing their latest release. Curious, I checked out the distribution’s website, which looked very nice.
Oracle is yet to provide evidence Australian customers are switching to its Red Hat Linux support program despite announcing new business deals for the last quarter.
You like packaged apps because they're standard, but is standard performance what your company is gunning for?
Mandriva 2007.1 RC3 is out since this weekend, so we are really near the final release now. After all the Gnome testing I did for Mandriva 2007.1, I thought it was time to do some ultimate testing with KDE. Actually, I'm very deceived: where Mandriva 2007.1 is very polished, the default KDE install is terrible. Really, not just bad, but plain terrible. Here's an overview.
This post is one part memo to self, one part demonstration of how I put together a very lightweight Feisty system using Openbox on a Dell Inspiron 1Ghz Pentium III laptop with 512Mb of PC133, two 60Gb 7200rpm hard drives and an Intel 2200BG wireless card.
