#16024 Some music to ponder over

Posted by Dungeon-Dave on 31 January 2012 - 09:11 PM

My music tastes are somewhat strange - many people would find it depressing or frightening - but I like music with life, with soul. That doesn't mean I'm a big Mowtown fan, it means I like sounds that stir and inspire me.

Some of the stuff here isn't to everyone's tastes, but it's stuff I often find tranquil and relaxing.

Fields Of the Nephilim - a big fan of theirs from some early days, seen them a few times in concert. Their earlier music began quite raw and gruttal, matured into progressive rock then into Pink Floyd type sounds. After a split and reform, they moved into grunge and dark metal, much of which I find too thrashy for my tastes, but there's the one or two gems amongst their collection.

Other stuff I listen to: Linkin Park, Vangelis, Sisters Of Mercy, The Mission, ELO.... told you it was a bit of an odd mix!

The world mourns not just the loss of one but two large names in IT.


He knew what he started, and it ain't over yet.

Dennis, from one geek to another - I salute and thank you for your vision and inspiration, and what you've achieved in your uptime.

#15645 Notebook

Posted by inittux on 01 December 2011 - 04:11 PM

I've decided I'm going to wait for buying my server until the hard disk prices go down. Until after the new year.
And I might just only buy 2x500GB I never use that much data. Can always replace the hard disks if I do.
Might as well get myself a christmas present so I'll be buying a notebook. I'm thinking of buying this one


What you think?
Nice and small, easy for travelling. And I'll be able to try out installing SL from a usb drive.

#16341 wifi interface wlan0 shows about 10-15% more traffic than VPN ppp0

Posted by ubunut on 10 March 2012 - 08:27 PM

I tried doing a search for vpn but it wont let me search under four characters so i will be so bold as to start a new topic.
I've been exploring the wonderful world of linux for a while now and since lately i got myself a vpn connection from ipredator which i use at all times when connected to the internet

I've been doing some scripting to have all relevant processes killed and the network disconnect in case the vpn goes down, i guess i'm just a bit paranoid. But all that works just fine.
Now i've been monitioring traffic on both ppp0 and wlan0 interfaces with this nifty little tool called ifstat.
What i notice is that at any time i am connected and traffic goes through the ppp0 interface i get about 10-15% more through my wlan0 interface. I have no clue where to ask about this and can't find the keywords to google the relevant information.
So, if anyone can help me out here? is it normal to have that much more traffic on the wi-fi than what goes actually through the vpn connection? Is it to do with the fact that the data's being encrypted or something? Anything to make me wiser about it or point me in the direction where i can find more info about this specific situation would be greatly appreciated.

I put a small portion of the output of ifstat here on pastebin : http://pastebin.com/9NEa8Zar

Go easy on me, i know a bit or two about computers but this is completely new to me.

Also, i can't seem to find anything about firewall rules to have a single program/process blocked from using anything but the ppp0 interface, all i can find is allow ip-ranges and open-close ports, anything for dummies on that subject would be most welcome as well

#16284 Screenshots of 12.04 Beta 1 [img heavy]

Posted by hybrid on 04 March 2012 - 01:48 PM

Here's a rather disorganised and random set of screenshots from the beta of Precise Pangolin LTS (12.04), which was released on March 1st, 2012.

Attached File  ln_precise_Ubuntu_Precise_Pangolin_Beta_1,_location.png.w.png   157.69KB   0 downloads

A nice touch -- I think the installer detected my location as in the United Kingdom, and pre-filled the timezone and keyboard layout settings.

A few new Appearance settings for having a little bit of control over Unity.

Interesting new privacy preferences, which allow you some control over the information Ubuntu and applications remember about your computing session.

It is a beta OS, so it's not stable just yet!

Updated LibreOffice, RhythmBox as the default music player...

The Software Centre, still looking pretty similar to 11.10.

#14048 usb stick linux/windows

Posted by inittux on 19 April 2010 - 12:23 PM

I have the following problem. I have a usb stick which I've used in linux and at work I work with windows at work. Before ejecting my usb stick I forgot to empty my trash in Linux. Now I'm at work and it says my usb stick is full. I have searched all over with google and I can't find a way to delete my .trash from my usb stick. Formatting it doesn't help either. Does anyone know how to do this without having to boot in linux?

#1007 how to take a screenshot in linux

Posted by anyweb on 12 January 2004 - 10:17 PM

How to take a screenshot in linux.

To take a screenshot of your beautiful desktop you could either try pressing the 'Prt Scr' key (print screen) on the keyboard.... or if that fails (and it sometimes does) then try this.

Open a console and type the following:-
import -window root filename.ext
Where filename.ext is the filename you want to give to your work of art. You can then check the directory you are in, and there will be the screenshot waiting for you.

If you want to add a delay BEFORE the shot is taken (so you can move stuff out of the way) then add a sleep command as follows:-
sleep 3s; import -window root screenshot.png
The above waits 3 seconds before taking the screenshot and saves it in PNG format. That's it, have fun :)
