    Who uses Debian on SPARC?

    No, not trying to be sarcastic. I'd assumed that (1) SPARC is almost as dead as Itanic and that (2) the few SPARC users left were contractually tied to Oracle or Fujitsu and therefore used a...
  2. Thanks for the Arch Tweaks

    I've just about entirely switched from Ubuntu/Debian to Arch. I appreciate the work to make PTS work well on Arch.
  3. Long Overdue

    I've been incredibly frustrated by the tendency of distributions/developers to not only consider Apache the default httpd; but to make it a dependency of many packages. I often want to install some...

    Absolutely. I've been working on trying to see if I can implement some sort of buffer/cache for GRASS so that is does not need to hit the datastore (fs, postgres, mysql, sqlite, whatever) to re-read...

    Should be KDE-Semantics...

    One of the things things I love about KDE/GNU/Linux is the 'nix philosophy:



    grep is a wonderful, powerful tool; but, it has intentionally limited functionality. The "composition" of find,...

    That was exactly my point! Since plain old grep can find stuff in what I called "proper" PDFs, and nepomuk cannot OCR the innumerable "bogus" PDFs created by document scanners, the value of the index...

    Multitasking in the human brain, silly.

    After all, as I tried to point out, an index or cache is rather useless if it has no content -- which is almost guaranteed to be the case for all but the...

    OCR? Really?

    For "proper" PDFs, those that are generated by document editing/creation apps from libreoffice.org Writer to Adobe FrameMaker, absolutely. Unfortunately, I have seen **way** too many "fake" PDFs that...

    for i in $(find -iregex '.*\.jpe?g'); do exiftool $i | grep 'D200'; done

    Of course, that is kind of a silly example. However, when you have maybe 100,000 images from several photographers, some...

    Quite Agree

    I would love to hear how anyone makes nepomuk and akonadi useful? One of the things that I love about Linux (and other *NIX) is the convenience and power of `grep`, `find`, `locate` and other related...
