Dropbox is a service that allows you to keep files synchronized across multiple machines (and multiple platforms). Click through and checkout the video. It’s pretty slick! Here is some additional info from ars technica.
Wahoo! Not sure when it started, but yesterday I noticed IMAP mail was flowing immediately to my Blackberry Curve (I’m a BIS user on T-mobile). Then today, I see this post over at Blackberry Cool which confirms I’m not the only one! http://www.blackberrycool.com/2008/09/bis-customers-now-getting-instant-imap-e-mail/

nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 Should look something like this DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static BROADCAST=172.16.0.255 HWADDR=00:00:00:00:00:00 IPADDR=172.16.0.2 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 NETWORK=172.16.0.0 ONBOOT=yes Duplicate that and open the new file cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0 nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0 Change device name, set new IP, remove reference to hardware DEVICE=eth0:0 BOOTPROTO=static BROADCAST=172.16.0.255 IPADDR=172.16.0.3 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 NETWORK=172.16.0.0 ONBOOT=yes
After a few months of continuous use, I’ve found Ensim to start using too much swap space and getting sluggish. A quick restart via command line, always fixes both: /etc/init.d/epld restart
It’s easy to pause a shell script during execution. Just add: sleep 10 (where 10 is the number of seconds you want the script to pause.) Some code for testing would be… #!/bin/sh before=”$(date +%s)” echo $before sleep 3 after=”$(date +%s)” echo $after elapsed_seconds=”$(expr $after – $before)” echo Elapsed time for code block: $elapsed_seconds Have […]
#!/bin/sh before=”$(date +%s)” echo $before sleep 5 Ymd=”$(date ‘+%Y%m%d’)” echo $Ymd after=”$(date +%s)” echo $after elapsed_seconds=”$(expr $after – $before)” echo Elapsed time for code block: $elapsed_seconds
