It has the absolute cheesiest lyrics but if you can overlook that, the background track is AMAZING.

Adding to the list of geek stuff I love: Readability. In a nutshell, this service scrapes the text off of web sites and presents it in a -wait for it- much more readable fashion.
Why I like it:
Full disclosure - I don’t know if this game is good or not but free is free. :-)
Humble Bundle is giving away free copies of Warlock: Master of the Arcane.
Gift codes are available below (first come, first serve):
Happy gaming folks!
Well, gee. Those burned through quickly. Here are another set of codes. Grab ‘em quick folks!
In case I’m not the only person who gets confused when remotely connecting to a workstation with a different native keyboard layout… here’s a breakdown of American vs British default keyboard configurations.
British (BS 4822):
Continuing my series of posts about geek stuff I like… I wanted to mention Greenshot, a free and open-source windows utility for grabbing screenshots.
At first, I’m sure it sounds unnecessary. After all, Windows already offers a native screenshot feature… right? Well, yeah… sorta. You’d probably be surprised how much a well-managed utility like Greenshot can help though. That’s especially true in a career like mine where screenshots are needed for everything from customer training to documentation and case notes.
So why do I like it?
So there you have it. A free alternative option to snagit. I’m digging it. You should give it a try.
This probably borders on common knowledge but as I didn’t know until recently, I thought I’d write it down in case someone else comes across the same issue.
The Problem: You want cron jobs to notify completely different email recipients depending on which job is triggered.
The Solution: You can use the
MAILTO= parameter multiple times throughout the
crontab list. Do that. :-)
MAILTO="email@example.com" 0 0 * * * /foo/foo.sh MAILTO="firstname.lastname@example.org" 0 2 * * * /foo/foo2.sh MAILTO="email@example.com" 0 4 * * * /foo/foo3.sh MAILTO="firstname.lastname@example.org" 0 6 * * * /foo/foo4.sh 0 8 * * * /foo/foo5.sh 0 10 * * * /foo/foo6.sh
I had no idea that
MAILTO= could be used multiple times. Many thanks to my Linux brothers at the unix/linux stackexchange site for sharing this bit of wisdom.
In case I’m NOT the last person on the planet to learn this…
-f switch for RPM shows what package a given file belongs to (assuming of course that RPM was used at all).
[foo@foobox ~]$ rpm -qf /bin/df coreutils-8.4-31.el6_5.2.i686
Thanks to my colleague Boris for passing this along!
I’ve been meaning to write a series of posts about geek technology, services, and gadgets I like. Why? Because when I enjoy something I can turn into a freakin’ fanboy. Sorry folks, I just can’t help it. First up on the list: Panasonic RPTCM125K Headphones.
Thanks to @zainy for pointing me to The Wirecutter where these were topping their list.
So why do I like them?
Final Verdict: A-
