Sometimes mouse cursor can be very annoying, when you are reading some articles, writing blog post. Especially when you are using a low quality optical mouse that always have jitter motion on mouse cursor, it will disturbs your reading and writing as well.

When you download mail merge template or create your own, you lose a feature that's built into the OpenOffice.org mail merges and reports: printing more than one record on a sheet of paper. However, it's easy to add that ability yourself.
If you're responsible for creating the Debian packages of a piece of software which isn't in the Debian archives, or if you're a Debian-developer keen on keeping your package up to date you will need to be aware of any new software releases which should be packaged.

One of the most annoying things about Linux is mime types for files. In KDE, when you right-click a file, and then select Open With, a little fly-out menu appears. You will see a couple of options in this menu. If none of them are the right one, you can click on Other.

I have too used to alarm clock, to wake me up every early morning. I set my alarm on my cellphone every night before I going to sleep. But recently, a simple stupid idea of creating an alarm clock in Linux comes to my mind.
Today, I’m going to introduce the concept of mount points. Mount points are, in essence, folders in which external filesystems are mounted (their contents are dropped into that folder).
For many years, Windows has enjoyed a number of free software tools for making backup copies of DVDs. The most popular among these offerings is DVD Shrink.
Now it's possible to get the same backup abilities plus the ability to rip DVD titles to XVID, MPEG4 or Matroska x264 AVI files under Linux using K9Copy.
Debian having released the latest stable version of its GNU/Linux distribution, there is obviously a rush by Debian users to upgrade their distro.
