Functions

Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Change attributes of files so you can edit them

I had problems in Ubuntu while trying to edit /etc/resolv.conf, even with sudo I couldn't make any change. After a 2 minutes search on google I found this command.

Hope someone finds it useful.

It works like chmod, with + and - to denote which attributes are being added and which are being removed.

See other attributes on man pages or on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chattr

What others think

Another classic sports watch that was never originally intended to be http://www.firstreplicarolex.co.uk/ produced in gold when it was for military pilots is the Breguet Type XX. A more modern and http://www.watchrex.co.uk/ slightly larger version is the Type XXI, as well as the Type XXII, which look particularly handsome with a chocolate brown http://www.rolexnicesale.co.uk/ face matched to an 18k rose gold case. Breguet includes a highly sophisticated 10Hz operating http://www.rolexreplicastoreuk.org.uk/ chronograph movement in the Type XXII, which happens to be among the rare modern models available with both a gold case and http://www.replicasrolex.me.uk/ matching bracelet. Elegant, sporty, timeless, and masculine. The irony of an 18k gold Royal Oak is that when the Royal Oak was first http://www.rolexreplica.me.uk/ introduced by Audemars Piguet in the early 1970s, its goal was to be a high-end sports http://www.ukswisswatcheshop.co.uk/ in steel... priced like a gold watch. Having a gold version is slightly ironic, given the original theme of the Royal Oak, but we can't blame Audemars Piguet for deciding to produce 18k gold models of the famous timepiece.
