Subject: The World’s Most Powerful Climate Change Supercomputer Powers Up

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

For all the political discord over climate change, one thing everyone can probably agree on is that when you’re throwing computational resources at modeling weather, the more the merrier. Think of the new computer that just came online at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming as a kind of dream come true from a meteorological standpoint, then, because it represents a mammoth increase in raw crunch-prowess, dedicated to studying everything from hurricanes and tornadoes to geomagnetic storms, tsunamis, wildfires, air pollution and the location of water beneath the earth’s surface.[Editor's Note: The NCAR Yellowstone supercomputer runs on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS.]

This process will add a nice visual representation of the hardrive usage on your Ubuntu server which you can acces over your local network. It's based on "philesight" which is a nice clone of philelight.

Subject: Iceweasel 10.0.09 ESR update for Debian Wheezy

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

The "fast" pace of Iceweasel/Firefox and Icedove/Thunderbird releases over the past couple of years has really thrown longer-term Linux distributions for a loop. Enter the Extended Support Release version of Firefox and Thunderbird. After seeing its Mozilla applications get really old really fast in Squeeze, Debian picked up on the ESR releases of Iceweasel and Icedove for Wheezy. That's what I see in CentOS, Scientific Linux and Stella as well, so it appears even Red Hat Enterprise Linux has opted for ESR.

Subject: Freeplane: Solid Mind Mapping but You May Need a Map

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

Freeplane is an application for creating mind maps. A mind map is the doodling you draw with shapes and other symbols around words connected with lines to make charts representing your thoughts and ideas on a particular topic or project. I rarely find tasks that seem easier to do the old fashioned way with paper and pencil than on a computer screen. But creating a mind map with Freeplane comes close.

Subject: After five years, - dancing baby - YouTube takedown lawsuit nears a climax

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

Arguing against the takedown of a 29-second home video portraying a toddler dancing might have been a slam dunk from a PR perspective; legally speaking, it's been anything but. EFF was looking for a case that was so obviously an example of "fair use" that the content owner who initiated the takedown could actually be forced to pay damages, under a little-used section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, section 512(f). But the bar is very high to get that type of relief. That became crystal clear at the most important hearing in the case thus far, held today in San Jose.

Subject: Manage planned tasks on Linux with the command at

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

In a former article I’ve talked about the commands cron and crontab that are the standard way to schedule recurring things on a Gnu/Linux system.But sometimes you need to do one thing at a specific date and time for just one time, and for these tasks the best option is to use at, another way to use at is to run a command later when the computer won’t be busy.Or another reason could be that you want to run a command that requires a lot of time to end and you have to disconnect from that server, at could be used in this situation, but for these task i suggest to take a look at the articles on how to run commands on background and the utility screen
