In this story, “Roblimo” takes us back to 2002, to an open source conference in a country where the common belief was that “nobody knew anything about Linux.” Boy, were they in for a surprise.
In December, 2002, I gave the keynote speech at an open source conference in Amman, Jordan. It was a tense time in that part of the world. Not long before I was there, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAISD) chief in Amman was assassinated. Anti-U.S. demonstrations had been shut down by Jordan’s armed forces earlier in the year. King Abdullah II was still new in the job and did not yet have as certain a hand on the helm as his father, Hussein (amateur radio call JY1) did during previous decades. To make things even more fun, the country was flooded with refugees from Iraq, and rumors were rife that the U.S. would soon go to war with Saddam Hussein over 9/11. Or something. Of course, the war rumors turned out to be true.
ZDnet: Fedora used to be just for cutting-edge desktop users and programmers.
Esto lo tenía en el tintero hace tiempo, pero como siempre, te quería mostrar un procedimiento simple y que funcione, así que llego la hora de instalar Google Drive en nuestro Debian o derivada, por medio de repositorios y con una mínima configuración, totalmente probado y 100% funcional.
Todo será gracias a una herramienta llamada Google-drive-ocamlfuse que nos permitirá tener Google Drive como en windows, con una carpeta sincronizada en la nube de la cuenta gmail o google apps./u/nksistemas
Industrial, rather than home, applications will likely dominate the Internet of Things (IoT) market in the years to come. Yet, in the early going, the home automation market has had the greatest visibility. And it hasn’t always been pretty.
Animation isn't easy, but the good news is that open source supplies plenty of high-quality animation tools.
Hey, in my script I'm using a lot of commands and a certain piece of info I need gets lost in a wall of text. I've been using:
echo -e "\e[30;48;5;82mTEST TEST\e[0m"
as a "title" before each command runs but now I need to use this colour system as well as "service whatever status | grep active".
I want to make the output from "service whatever status | grep active" standout.
Snippet of the script in question:
echo -e "\e[30;48;5;82mStarting service...\e[0m"
sudo service whatever start
service whatever status | grep activesubmitted by /u/Trazoku
From time to time, everyone needs to convert a file from one format to another.
Although the Chromebook is advertised as a minimalist computer, it is also a thin client that relies entirely on a cloud server for computing power. On the one hand, it has a CPU and an operating system, but it is not programmable (at least as far as I understand); it has applications that are simply interfaces to Google cloud services. It essentially serves the same function as a terminal on a time-sharing network (cloud computing is basically just time-sharing on a larger scale). What do you think?submitted by /u/Erentigionation
