Linux Quotes

2008-01-28 Comments off

10. “What happens when you read some doc and either it doesn’t answer your question or is demonstrably wrong? In Linux, you say “Linux sucks” and go read the code. In Windows/Oracle/etc you say “Windows sucks” and start banging your head against the wall.”— Denis Vlasenko on lkml

That pretty much sums up how I feel about things as well. The quotes in the comments are pretty good as well.

Firefox extension for taking screen shots

Screengrab!People keep sending me “screen shots” that turn out to be Microsoft Word documents with web pages pasted in them. Last time I checked screen shots were images not text documents. When I asked them why they didn’t send me an image instead they said $40 was to much to spend on an application just to take pictures once a month with it. Thankfully, there’s a Firefox extension that does this job quite well, works on all platforms, and its free!

Screengrab! is an extension for Firefox that makes it easy to save a web-page as an image. With it, you can save anything that you can see in a browser window – from a small selection, to a complete page.
Basically Screengrab! let’s you take what you want from a web-page: the entire scrollable document, just the visible bit, or a draggable selection. Screengrab will even save just the contents of an individual frame. — Screengrab! website

I use it to grab all my web page screen shots these days. It couldn’t be easier to use. Just click on the Screengrab icon in the bar at the bottom of Firefox, select save and you’re done. Go get it from the Firefox Add-ons site right now! You won’t regret it.

FUDCon Raleigh 2008I went ahead and made a public flickr group for the Fedora User and Developer Conference (FUDCon). I took a few pictures at FUDCon Raleigh 2008 (still going on now) and I’m uploading them now. Anyone who has pictures related to any of the FUDCons (past and present) feel free to post your pictures there.
