Compiz Memories of the Way Windows Were

Hack and / – Memories of the Way Windows Were November 1st, 2008 by Kyle Rankin Still arranging windows by hand? Learn how to take advantage of Compiz’s window memory, so it can do the work for you. I’m a half-organized person. On one hand, if something of mine has a place, I can be pretty anal about making sure I put it back every time I use it. On the other hand, if something doesn’t have a place, it inevitably ends up in a pile or a junk drawer. I’ve learned that if I want to be organized, I must give everything a home.

Customizing the Gnome menus with Gnome 2.0 in Solaris 9.

Customizing the Gnome menus with Gnome 2.0 in Solaris 9. – or – Corrections to Solaris document 817-3851 “Gnome 2.0 Desktop for the Solaris Operating Environment Systems Administration Guide” chapter 2, “Customizing Menus”. So you have installed Solaris 9 with Gnome 2.0 on some 150 machines and now you would like to customize the Applications menu to list your specific applications. Every single pathname in that chapter is wrong and is pretty useless in actually attempting this task, though I do make the assumption through the rest of this post that you have read it.

UTF-8 PHP MYSQL (histoire d’encodage)

UTF-8 PHP MYSQL (histoire d’encodage) Accueil UTF-8 PHP MySql Barre de progression d’upload en PHP Encodage et programmation Les caractères qui s’affichent sur les écrans d’ordinateur, comme toute donnée informatique, ne sont qu’une sucession de 0 et de 1 du point de vue de la machine. C’est le nombre et l’ordonnance de ces bits qui définissent la norme d’un encodage. Plus le nombre de bit sera élevé, plus l’encodage supportera de caractères. Les problèmes que l’on peut rencontrer lors du passage à l’UTF-8 viennent de cette différence de norme avec l’encodage européen ISO. Entre ces deux normes les problèmes vont se situer au niveau des caractères “spéciaux” comme les caractères accentués. A côté des problèmes que cela peut impliquer, l’UTF-8 permet de gérer un plus grand nombre de caractères, donc de gérer des langues aux glyphes exotiques, ce que ne permet pas l’iso avec ses 256 possibilités. Mais si l’UTF-8 permet de telles choses c’est qu’il est codé sur plus de bits que l’ISO, et si cela influe sur l’affichage, cela influe forcément sur le traitement des chaînes au niveau de la programmation et du stockage en base de données. Imaginons que l’on veuille connaître la longueur de cette chaîne…

Merging Unionfs on Eeepc

Merging changes from partition 2 into partition 1 samo on jan-2008: it is possible to do the above even after heavy changes are done to the original filesystem – i.e. lots of work, package additions/removals etc (not at all virgin state) – and still get everything right (and keep the original partition/filesystem instead of making all new). Roughly the steps are as follows (requires some unix skills. Read this entire section before starting and ensure you know what you’re doing):

SSD About … MustHave ;-)

No SWAP Partition, Journaling Filesystems, … on a SSD? December 7, 2008 I’m going to get an Asus Eee PC 901go, which has a Solid State Disk (SSD) instead of a normal hard disk (HD). As you know me I’ll remove the installed Linux and install my own Kubuntu. I soon started to look at the best way to install my Kubuntu and I found following recommendations copy and pasted on various sites:
