pgrep works for me. I'll have to predefine which PIDs are excluded from killing, but that'll work. thanks

comment How can I sync my system time with that of a database?
On same network yes, but I don't have access to server where DB is located, just SQLPlus connection. Thinking if a batch script could do this for me..

comment what does the asterisk mean after a filename if you do ls -l
Interesting, I'll give what you suggested a shot. Only thing that confuses me is that I had this running yesterday, and since then have only restarted... :S

comment How can I get PDFs onto my iPhone?
Thanks guys, apologies should have worded question better. I was having trouble finding a way to have them show in iTunes (on my pc), but after reading the blog post I linked below (why downvote? it solved my issue) things are OK. Also an upgrade on iTunes helped as I wasnt able to add ebooks on my previous version

comment Is there anyway to access laptop HDD if it won't start up on its own?
Thanks. Yeah the warranty is long gone. I've take the HDD out, it looks like a regular IDE connection, can I whack this in a spare PC and treat it as any other drive? Cheers

comment Make gnucash to track something other than money
You should find that most CM's will allow you to create additional "data fields" on items, so you can add a "price" and "location", from there you can report on how much you are spending and who has the items. Either that or setup categories in GNUcash for DVD etc and bill items to those

comment How to check whether my PC supports PCI Express
Why are you avoiding opening the PC? Due to a warranty sticker? Could you lookup your PC from the manufacturer/supplier to see what is on the product specification?

Can you try another mouse? Maybe that one is on its way out. Also try another USB port or try that mouse on another PC

comment safely remove java, .net, visual c++, MSXML
Why remove java / .net other than the fact you don't like it? Over time I'm sure you will come across an installer or web page that requires .net/java

What kind of data are we talking about? Files like spreadsheets and such? Source control? Databases?
