User of Ubuntu since 11.04. Currently running 14.10. Amateur CLI geek. Interested in Javascript and, to a lesser extent, Python and Java.

You should support the Vi/Vim proposal!

Random quotes...

Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Okay, so it seems like the problem is a great library for generating PDF files with PHP.
So almost true...

comment Keyboard does not respond when in BIOS menu
This is a hardware specific problem. Most likely the USB devices aren't being loaded until the operating system boots.

comment Greasy water in laptop's DIMM slot
It's not really easy to take a laptop's motherboard out, and not recommended if you don't know what you are doing. Might also void your warranty.

comment How can I move a huge directory with MILLIONS of files?
Wait, is this on a Linux machine or a Windows machine? Are you trying to open the folder where the files are located or are you trying to move the them to a new location?

comment Is it really possible for most enthusiasts to crack people's Wi-Fi networks?
How hard is it to spoof a MAC address, since you'd have to get one that's on the whitelist. I know anything that is transmitted can be picked up manually, but isn't that a lot of work?

comment Rename files by md5 checksum
I'm sorry, but what do you mean by "rename files with their calculated checksums"? You want to rename them to the value of their checksums or you want to change their name based on the value of the sums?

comment How do I extract a background from a Windows 7 Theme file?
This no longer works either. All I see at that location are .theme files which can't be extracted.

Depends on how you installed it. Linux Mint is off-topic here however. Try on Unix & Linux.

I'm not sure this is possible in Gnome Shell. I think the best you can do is Alt+Tab.

Cut out the middle parts? I don't think that will make the file smaller..
