You guys are idiots, 1234 is way too easy.

You should use a strong one, like 12password34, like I do.

The easiest way to upgrade Firefox is with Ubuntuzilla.

I haven't had the chance to install Statler yet, but I have run the LiveCD and I can't believe it!

It's faster than CrunchBang 9.04 running on my harddrive!

I can't wait for beta, that's when it gets fun!

While I personally like to install software on my own, sometimes even self-compiling, I think this is an excellent idea and I'd likely use it to pick out some apps.

#11 Re: Devel: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" » Alpha for every day use? » 2010-03-16 02:05:28

It's tough for anyone to say whether an alpha stable or not.

The point of alphas is to release a program to the public to help find bugs in the program.

Even though its base is considered stable, and the developers may consider their alpha to be stable, it's very unlikely that any alpha released would be suitable for everyday use.

#15 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW-TO: Make a functional trash bin for the terminal » 2010-03-06 19:39:55

Just an update on this trash-bin I'm working on.

I've been pretty busy this week so I haven't been able to get much work done it the program.

Hopefully I'll have a little time next week to work on it.

Are we really about to argue about the muppets?

Does Dr. Bunsen have any sort of burner?

#20 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW-TO: Make a functional trash bin for the terminal » 2010-03-01 06:00:36

You shouldn't be allowed to move files that aren't in your directory without root permissions.

I can't imagine my program would be any different.

sudo trash your-house

You should have to sudo to work with files outside your user directory.
So isn't this a natural file permission handle that's already built into the kernel?

maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't that suffice?

#21 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW-TO: Make a functional trash bin for the terminal » 2010-03-01 01:04:17

Python is good, but I have some sort of attraction to natively compiled languages, like C or C++

#22 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW-TO: Make a functional trash bin for the terminal » 2010-02-28 21:12:30

I've been thinking about this some more and and idea came to me.

I'm fairly acquainted with C and one field I'm looking more into is the its file capabilities.

I figured that this would be a good way to learn them better.

When I write this program, I'm going to adjust how it works so that all functions of the trash bin are in one program called trash.

Here's a synopsis of how it would work.

It's just one simple command, trash, which will take one (or more) of several arguments.

For example, if you wanted to delete a file:

trash linkin-park.jpg

That's all it would take.

If you wanted to empty the trash bin:

trash -e

I'm considering making this a little more verbose by changing e to empty, or making both arguments available.

And, using the information you guys made available, restoring:

trash -r my-house.avi

Again, with r, I'm considering changing it to restore or making both avaible arguments.

So, what do you guys think?

#23 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Thanks everyone on these forums » 2010-02-28 20:49:25

I noticed that too.

That's why I love the place, we're all so friendly and welcoming.


#24 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » HOW-TO: Make a functional trash bin for the terminal » 2010-02-27 07:43:47


I think you're starting to over analyze this...

I just use PCManFM and usually do most of my file management from the terminal anyway...

I just made this in case I delete the wrong file...

However, johnraff, I'll look into your info more later, but right now I'm so tired that I'd end up deleting my file system if I tried...

Are you running Transmission BitTorrent when this happens?

I also have this problem with my wireless when Transmission is running.

Another thing, if you're on a laptop, how far away from your router are you when it cuts out?
