Arrival in this reflection after happened on the Adobe website, to sales page Photoshop CC. I take the guise of the slogan of a commercial software to get to talk to the school system. No less than.

In the page footer sales photoshop found a box that reads "We love students & teachers"... and for some reason.

Google Webfont: dentro la talpa WordPress

Google-Fonts-Logo

Today (after more than five months) I get to write on the blog. And back at breakneck speed with an article to 007 that will make your hair stand on end users WordPress.

I discovered today that the version in WordPress 3.8 (Today we are 4.0) has been enabled by default in the backend the Open Sans font. In fact I had already noticed little slow in loading the backend, but I thought it was due to the new "engine" ie WordPress, instead is due to direct inclusion of a branded Google webfont.

5 GNOME Shell extensions that will make your life easier

GNOME

After all hiding from the blog, a mouthful broad appeal is just what we want. I did not want to shoot too high, so I opted for "facilitate" rather than "change". Also because there is little change, not?

Today we see how to speed up some operations using extensions Gnome Shell. But first, a clarification for those who do not know what is Gnome or Gnome Shell.

Unlike other operating systems, in GNU/Linux the back-end and the GUI are two separate things. A computer that mounts Linux can and should work even without interface

Bcache: the advantage of having a layer between SSD and HDD in terms of speed

hd_crash

Ok, the truth is that these days are not very inspired with titles, unfortunately you will have to settle. Today we talk about speed and SSD / HDD. We will not make the usual benchmark to demonstrate the superiority in speed of solid state disk (it is a fact that it is faster), Instead we understand that it can be useful and economical to add a layer to take care of to communicate the two disks to speed up the process of burning the old HDD.

Terminal: clear the command history

shell

Cencellare command history from the history of the terminal is a simple operation. Default, the last 500 commands type in termilane are stored in the hidden file ".bash_history". The previously typed commands can be read quickly by using the arrow keys ("freccia its" and "down arrow"). This makes it easy to invoke a command recently typed, but it could be a security issue if that session was used by more people. So how does one delete the command history?

Start a program with GUI remotely via SSH

shell

I do not often have to start an application on a remote machine that requires the use of the GUI, more widely in applications to launch and "turn" in background, but it can always happen. I'm thinking for example to those who use a computer as a multimedia station (with XBMC setup is very simple) or even just to experience.

Suffice it to say that you can do, but it is necessary to direct the GUI application to a screen in particular.

WordPress: warn the reader that the post is old

clocky

Often (writing software and technology) that the article is now present, tomorrow has already passed. There is at least un plugin per WordPress to notify the reader that the post you're reading was written long ago, that is a perfect solution and ready for use, groped but I also wanted to change the code of my theme to add this simple function automatically.

I state that the following steps create a box (in this case yellow) before the title of the article.

Social Icons based on font… but intelligent

bubble

Today we talk about are and web, indeed ... talk about an easy way to use a font in our pages graph which correspond social icons (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and so on), thus integrating the article about six months ago on the set of icons in the form of font.

The font of today has as particularity the fact of being simple to include, even more than the set of icons that I mentioned six months ago. It's called "Mono Social Icon Font", and a example live (worth a thousand words) we can see the project page. In fillable field (opening the site the focus is already on the) we try to write any of the names next to the icons below ("circleaboutme", "circlebebo", etc.).
