Ubuntu is composed of many software packages, the vast majority of which are distributed under a free software license. The only exceptions are some proprietary hardware drivers.The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declares that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. On the other hand, there is also proprietary software available that can run on Ubuntu. Ubuntu focuses on usability, security and stability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible.

KNode/KNode for mailing lists.

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Mailing lists are widely used for communication among Free Software projects and interest groups.

 

By sending an email to a special email address, tens, hundreds or thousands of people will receive the message for discussion.

 

It can be useful to separate this mailing-list email traffic you receive from regular email really meant for you. This way, you can casually read a mailing list without worrying about receiving too much mail you might not be interested in.

How to send SMS using Kontact.

Create an account at smsjoker (or something similar). Prices are ok and writing SMS at your PC just rocks.

 

Load script “smsjoker-script” from kde-apps.org. Open Konsole and with root permissions. Copy script to /usr/local/bin and make it executable:

 

# cp smsjoker-script /usr/local/bin/
# chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/smsjoker-script

 

Call up program as the regular user once.

 

$ smsjoker-script

 

Now you will find a hidden file called “.smsjoker-script” in your home directory. Open this file with e.g. Kate and change the parameters OWN_NUMBER and PASSWORD. Use values you have used when creating your account.

1. Start with Your WordPress Username.
When installing a new version of WordPress, one of the first steps is to select your username. Because it comes up with the default of "admin" many users overlook changing this and continue on with a very lame, hacker-attack-waiting-to-happen username. I know - I did it too way back when.

I'm willing to bet that your name is not "admin", only guessing here but I'd wager that your first name may be more difficult for a hacking robot to come up with than "admin". So my advice is to use your first name or a name associated with your site.

In addition, this also makes your site appear more personable as your name will appear next to your post heading and date unless you turn off those features. It also shows up in the comments and that definitely is friendlier.

Rawdog is an RSS Aggregator Without Delusions Of Grandeur.

Rawdog is an RSS Aggregator Without Delusions Of Grandeur. It is a "river of news"-style aggregator: it uses feedparser to download feeds in RSS, Atom and a variety of other formats, and (by default) produces static HTML pages containing the newest articles in date order.

 

Rawdog is designed to be invoked periodically by cron (or a similar task-scheduling mechanism). It stores data in flat files, so no database is required. It can use threads to download multiple feeds in parallel, and uses ETags, Last-Modified, and gzip compression to minimise network bandwidth usage.

rApache Web Application Development with R and Apache: Handler Return Values and HTTP Response Codes (Chapter V).

It is a list of lists, with the nested list giving you the "name" of the file and the "tmp_name", the location of the temporary file. For instance, to reference the uploaded file from the input tag named "FirstFile" you would use FILES$FirstFile$tmp_name.

rApache Web Application Development with R and Apache: Handler Return Values and HTTP Response Codes (Chapter V).

It is a list of lists, with the nested list giving you the "name" of the file and the "tmp_name", the location of the temporary file. For instance, to reference the uploaded file from the input tag named "FirstFile" you would use FILES$FirstFile$tmp_name. Here's a code snippet to copy the file to the '/usr/local/uploaded_files' directory:

 

destination <- file.path('/usr/local/uploaded_files',FILES$FirstFile$name)
file.copy(FILES$FirstFile$tmp_name,destination,overwrite=TRUE)

 

NOTE: the temporary files are deleted after the R handler completes handling the request. Thus, it is imperative that you copy/move this file to your desired location before the R handler returns.

rApache Web Application Development with R and Apache: Difference in r-handler and r-script (Chapter IV).

The latest Apache2 debian packages cause the web server to run in a very reduced environment, thus one is unable to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH before calling /etc/init.d/apache2. One option is to actually edit that file and add the LD_LIBRARY_PATH explicitly. Another is to use the apache2ctl scripts which are also bundled with the debian packages. Or you can add it to /etc/ld.so.conf.

4.6 sendBin.

Sends binary data to the browser. This function is equivalent to R's writeBin() function, but the connection argument is ignored. See the documentation to writeBin() in your R distribution for more information.

 

sendBin(object=readBin(t,'raw',n=file.info(t)$size))

rApache Web Application Development with R and Apache: Difference in r-handler and r-script (Chapter III).

Rapache is a simple tool for remotely managing and configuring an apache2 server.

If you need a simpler software just to start/stop apache2 and mysql, check localhost-indicator.

 

3.6.2 Difference in r-handler and r-script.

r-handler, r-script, and r-info are valid arguments to Apache's SetHandler directive ("r-info" is already described in section 2.3). Calling SetHandler forces url's to be parsed through the named handler.

 

r-handler is used when you want to call an R function without arguments. You can also specify a particular file as well (see below). It is generally used within Location directives.

 

Currently we don't have a dedicated website.
