How To Completely Disable Tracker, GNOME’s File Indexing And Search Tool – Linux Uprising Blog

Tracker. *ugh* don’t even get me started on a rant about Tracker… The GNome team forgot all about Linux philosophies somewhere along the way. So how to completely disable Tracker, so it no longer indexes any files, and stop having any Tracker process running in the background? You can mask the Tracker systemd services to completely disable it Source: How To Completely Disable Tracker, GNOME’s File Indexing And Search Tool – Linux Uprising Blog

Recover deleted files from terminal

When you need a not-as-common tool, sometimes you really need its functionality. I needed to recover a couple of mp3 files from a USB thumb drive. Fortunately, a quick Google search showed how to do this, quite easily, using TestDisk: Step 10 Again, bear in mind that Testdisk is a multi-function tool. Most of these options deal with groups of files; we only want our damn resume back! So hit “c”. — via How ToLearn More

Add SD-Card as internal storage in Android Marshmallow and above

Are you like me, and just got a new Android device whose manufacturer has the device configured to not allow adoptable storage for SD-Cards? Some manufacturers have a bad habit of doing this on all their devices (looking at you, LG, for doing this on both the LG G-Pad X and the LG G6). It is possible to work around this, by turning on Developer mode, enabling USB debugging, and then using adb to doLearn More

Fix middle-button click on Dell Inspiron Clickpads

I seriously cannot believe that it took me as long as it did to find a fix to this issue. New-ish Dell Inspiron laptops have moved from touchpads to Clickpads – the biggest change is that Clickpads have no physical buttons on them at all. Everything is done by a combination of taps and clicks and gestures. Blame Apple for screwing around with something that should be straight-forward.  😛 Anyway, after a few hours ofLearn More

Meltdown on Steam

I’ve had this game sitting around in my Steam list for a long time (another Humble Bundle purchase), but just now got around to firing it up. And Oh! My! Gracious!!!  This is such a fun game! The weapons are fun, enemies are goofy but deadly, and the visual style is both gorgeous and cartoonish. This has become my new favorite game! Meltdown is a tactical arcade shooter featuring both singleplayer and intense online multiplayer.Learn More

Possible Pyramids Discovered From Space : NPR

Yet another of the many reasons I <3 science: By studying infrared images taken by NASA satellites, Sarah Parcak and her team from the University of Alabama at Birmingham identified the suspected pyramids in Tanis, Egypt. The ancient city, abandoned centuries ago, is famous as the fictional home of the Lost Ark from the Indiana Jones movies. Satellite images also showed other lost structures, like tombstones and houses, buried for thousands of years. via PossibleLearn More

Neil Gaiman’s Introduction To Doctor Who

There’s a big blue box.  It’s bigger on the inside than the outside. It can go anywhere in space and time, sometimes where it is supposed to go.  Something will go wrong, and there’s some bloke called The Doctor who’ll make it all right because he’s awesome.  Now sit down, shut up and watch Blink. via Neil Gaiman’s Perfect Introduction To Doctor Who For New Viewers – Bleeding Cool.

All good things must come to an end… NTiR

I started this project in April 2010. I finished in December of that same year. Eight full months dedicated to reading the New Testament and then writing down my thoughts for the world to see. I have to admit that I have come away with a slightly different view of Christianity. It was very enlightening to read through the entire story of Christ starting from Jesus’s birth. It was illuminating to see how the storiesLearn More

The end is here! (New Testament in Review)

Those of you who read my last entry will realize that we have reached the end of the New Testament. For better or worse, this project is just about finished.  I started reading and reviewing the New Testament in April 7th of this year (2010) and I will put a capstone on this project this coming Tuesday, December 28th, 2010. Just in time to ring in the new year! I am going to take aLearn More

One resurrection, two deaths and a thousand years – Revelation 20-22

We have arrived at the end of the universe, at the end of all things, and the creation of the new Heaven. At the end of Chapter 19, Christ led heaven to a final, climactic battle with the armies of evil. The White Rider trampled all enemies, and banished both the Beast and the Anti-Christ to the lake of fire. One might wonder what is there left to do? Evil is vanquished. Doesn’t that meanLearn More
