systemd transfer… Done!

Well, after being throughly put off, I dived into systemd and have done a complete (pure) systemd installation; and I can tell you, I think its pretty nice. I had no plans to change Arch’s initialization system, but I needed to switch to systemd because parts of GNOME 3 require it. Its been a long […]

Disk and Memory Usage Scripts

At times I like to check my levels of disk and memory usage and it’s more convenient for me to do it from the command line. So, I created a couple scripts for them: devtop Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 9.8G 6.4G 2.9G 69% / /dev/sda6 166G 38G 121G 24% /home memtop […]

Pandoc-flavored markdown: Perfect!

I’d been looking for a way to convert my notes to webpages. Typically I wrote my notes in .txt form and then went through them and added links, formatting… when I was ready to blog them. Recently, I had asked StackOverflow if I could convert MediaWiki format to HTML. I’m an Administrator for the Arch […]

Gmail Icons

Warning: I got the base design from a Google+ website. I’m not sure if these are tradmarked logos and if Google in that case if they will have a problem with them. If they do, they will be removed. I was hoping to use this for a Gmail notification icon but it didn’t turn out […]
