MOC Audio Player — advanced tricks

Filed under
Software

polishlinux: The program MOC was reviewed in recent article called MOC — Console Audio Player for Linux. It was written by Roman Tworkowski. Even though we live in the times of cute graphical interfaces e.g. Compiz, KDE, etc. I consider the MOC player to be a better solution for some users (including myself) than the very popular applications Xmms or Amarok, and the other visually appealing players. Why do I think so?

Filed under
HowTos

Linux Evangelist: It’s annoying to read so much about partitioning under GNU/Linux being hard.

Your Choices with Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

Daniel Robbins: There is a large interest among the Gentoo and larger Linux user community for me to come back as Chief Architect. However, there's lots of reasons why trying to jump back into the Chief Architect role this isn't the right thing to do. The solution, I think, is to look for positive ways to improve the Gentoo community.

Export your Kopete History to text or HTML

Filed under
KDE

/dev/bram: The Kopete History plugin stores its data in some custom XML format. Not really pleasant to read some conversation afterwards or to look up a piece of information from it. Of course you can load Kopete and view the history, but wouldn't it be nicer to view it in a more pleasant format like plain text or HTML?

But in an age of global warming and increasing costs per KWh, saving power on workstations by putting them to sleep when not in active use is a good idea, too.
