LXer: Review: The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 16, 2009
Published at LXer:
I previously reviewed the 2nd edition of this book, so I was interested in what was changed and/or added in its current incarnation. Of course, the release of Firefox 3 and IE 8 are enough to warrant an updating of "tips and tricks" relative to CSS and web design, but was there more? The back cover blurb didn't indicate such, but I looked further.
Linux Power Saving on the MBA 2011 [Tips/Tricks/Tutorial]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2012
So, although I use Arch, I figured I'd swing by and share this here.
I keep a blog, and I've been making some tweaks to my MacBook Air 2011 (4,1) in order to try and use as little battery as possible, so my past two posts have detailed these changes.
Although these tweaks were applied to a MBA, many of them can be applied to most other systems, especially those that are using the Intel chipset.
So, here's the second post that details the script and and modifications I use.
I would really appreciate some feedback, especially if you guys can suggest any more changes that would even further improve battery life!
I hope this helps any people who are looking for some extra juice

Many ppl like to have a fortune cookie displayed at console logon, which can be done by installing the 'fortune' package. But here's an alternative, displaying a random IRC quote from bash.org, with a 'funny' rating above 0.
- Internet connection
- coreutils, gawk, grep, links
- change the $workdir to your liking
Here's the script to get a list of URL's pointing to random bash.org quotes:
Advanced usage of pacman, tips, tricks & reference resources wanted?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 8, 2009
The title says it all.
$ man pacman
Brings plenty of options, it really is the intelligent usage of these options that I'm sure can do wonderful things for an Arch system.
I'm also sure that the unintelligent combination of pacman's command options can absolutely ruin an Arch install.
Seeing as I'm not intelligent enough to work out the wonders & treasures laying hidden in the pacman man pages, I'm asking for those that are to pass on their knowledge in this thread.
All tips, tricks & links to reference resources welcome.
Hardware compatibility, general tips/tricks.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2014
This is my very first post so bare with me as far as my techno-language. I have been a windows user for all of my life, and I think im finally ready to make the change to Linux. In particular Ubuntu. I have come to a general understanding that its the most popular and stable distro. I'm a gamer, I love open source and the recent changes to the gaming world and Linux are awesome! I know about the hardware compatibility post but 100% honest, im terrible with forums and dont know how to look up my own parts using that forum section.
My Specs are:
Asrock Extreme 3 Motherboard
AMD 8350 (8 Core ~4ghz [stock clocks])
EVGA Gtx 650 Ti
8g of ddr3 patriot RAM (stock clocks)
1tb mechanical hdd
Razer Deathadder Mouse
Razer Deathstalker keyboard
Soundblaster-Z sound card (from a quick google search I found that these aren't supported--is this true?)
My case is the CM Storm
I just want to make sure everything (for the most part) is compatible with the least amount of issues. I'm new to

HOWTO: Bash script for periodic check of running process (with mail warning)
- date: September 19, 2007
I wrote a small sh script for checking if particular process is running.
The script need to be started as "service" (./script &). If you want to start it as soon as Ubuntu is loaded, add line "/path/to/script/script.sh &" without quotes to /etc/rc.local.
When script is running, it periodically check if defined process name is up and running.
When checked process isn't found (crashed!), the script will send some warning e-mail to the defined address and will try to start that process again (check permissions to run process). This warning e-mail is send only once until process is again started.
If starting of the checked process is successful, e-mail with this info is send.
Save code bellow to some file and enable permissions for executing of that file.
MAILSTOP=0 # switcher for mail sending
CHECKINGPERIOD=20 # in sec

In some sense this book is the third in a trilogy published by Sitepoint on web design with The Art & Science of CSS and The Principles of Beautiful Web Design being the first two in the series. Since I wrote the reviews for the first two books for MCSEWorld.com, I thought I'd publish the review for The CSS Anthology here, too.
