I'm a software developer and inveterate geek (like many here, I suspect). For work I use so many tools I usually can't remember them all, but C, Java/J2EE, scripting (unix shell + others) and release engineering tools figure heavily in the list.

comment Organize my bittorrent downloads?
Is there a remote UI for it? Because right now it's pretty convenient to be able to check the status of my torrents in Transmission's web UI. The lack thereof is not a dealbreaker -- given that it's a command line app, of course -- but it's a downside.

It's a possibility, but I used to run it that way and it caused some sluggishness on the machine.

comment Why is my HP printer often 'Busy'?
I'm going to do that, if it keeps working til then. It's been so erratic over the months I can't believe it's working. Do you know what this app does to the CUPS config? I couldn't suss out what it was up to.

This seems to be working; I'll try it in a few days and see if it's still holding out. The problem is so erratic that it's hard to be sure that it's solved.

According to Software Update, yes.

This has occurred with several generations of the driver, starting with the one that came with the printer, all the way to the current incarnation. It's got to be software, because the Windows netbook my wife uses can print to it, when it can see the printer (which is another issue entirely)
