Subject: World Backup Day – Let’s see some strategy for Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I just discovered that today it’s the world backup day, and with the slogan on the webpage: “DON’T BE AN APRIL FOOL. BACKUP YOUR FILES. CHECK YOUR RESTORES.” they remember that is always a good habit to have 1 (or more) backup of our important data.But in the days of social network, cloud computing and emails always left on remote servers, where are all our information and how we can save them securely ?

Subject: Don’t issue Direct Shutdown or Halt in Unix and Linux – Examples

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Multiuser systems such as Unix should never be just “shut off”. Active users connected to the system are rightfully miffed if their terminals die without warning. Even if the users have all logged out and gone home, there may be background jobs and daemons ticking away. Daemons get mad if their processes are suddenly curtailed.A less obvious danger lays in the way the Unix file system works.

Subject: Special Report: First Look at GNOME 4 - the Future of Portability

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Almost exactly one year ago, GNOME 3 was released with much fanfare. But to the surprise of many, it was not warmly welcomed. Indeed, it has polarized the Linux community, mainly because it was such a radical departure from the familiar and popular GNOME 2. Although some praised the new interface, it seemed that many more geeks were not impressed, leading to a rather bitter war of words on various online community forums.

There are plenty of things that you can do when you have plenty of money. Mark Shuttleworth, for example, spent some of his fortune for the privilege of being one of the first space tourists. Another part of his capital is involved in the company named Canonical, which works on the famous Linux distribution, Ubuntu.

Subject: 2do’s todos are a doozie

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Having recently converted to Android from my iPhone 4, I have been very happy with the range of apps to replace what I had on iOS. In many cases, I’m finding the apps better. The Android ethos seems to be more about function, rather than design and aesthetics. However, one area where I’ve found the Android to be lacking is in respect of the “todo” category.

Subject: Learning Linux Commands: nice & renice

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Subject: how to determine the runtime and start time of a Linux process

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Yesterday, I needed to determine the runtime of a Linux process for a monitoring script. Cos the format for start_time of the ps command may change if the process was not started in the same year, I decided to take the neccessary informations from the /proc/[he]lt[/he]PID[he]gt[/he]/stat file.

It’s not just teenage girls who are swept away by ‘bieber fever’, apparently Linux, the open-source operating system is the newest entrant to the overflowing list of beliebers. Just two days since its launch, Justin Bieber Linux, more popularly known as Biebian, has taken the open-source community by storm.
