Tried Ogle? Try it if you didn't and are looking for a simple and rather painless ways to play your DVD's on your PC almost as if you plugged them in a standalone DVD player (for a TV set) without having to do alot of tweaking just to get it playing right and without anomalies and with subtitles working (if you need them).

Ogle supports DVD menu and seems to tune in to any DVD without a problem.

I have added it to my ~/.xinitrc file (by default commented) like this:

#gksudo ogle /dev/hdd

So when I want to play a DVD I just insert it in my DVD player, go out of GNOME (or whatever I may be using in X) to console (killing X in the process of course), modify my ~/.xinitrc file to comment out the mentioned command and comment the one that usually starts GNOME (exec gnome-session) and then just startx to start playing a DVD.


Tip of the Trade: Drupal - Deploying and using it may not be completely painless, but Drupal is a great content management system (CMS) framework that is lightweight, modular, and not too difficult to navigate. [GNUs]

Carla Schroder talks about Drupal at ServerWatch.com. Right on I say! Eye I didn't actually know that CafePress.com runs on Drupal too - that's quite impressive. As you well know, Nuxified.org does too. Smiling

Simple Text Editor


You can use the cat command as a simple text editor for creating or appending files.

If you want to write a small file just:

cat > file << "EOF"
> put
> your
> text
> here
> EOF

and then you'll have written your file with the text you put in.

Panic!


I really do hate my wireless network device. It really causes so many problems but at least it gives me a free net connection and sometimes a good connection. Smiling

Lately it has been giving me kernel panics on network scanning though and is really annoying me. Especially how I lose my uptime.

I had two whole days and seven hours! (it's not much, but it's a start. Sticking out tongue)

Anyhow, I'm done.

S'ya later,
