Little Miss Sunshine

Submitted by Druss on Tue, 2007-02-13 04:06
Little Miss Sunshine is a compact and cute li'l flick about a slightly dysfunctional family who take a road trip from New Mexico to California, so that the (pudgy li'l) daughter of the family can take part in a beauty pageant for six and seven year olds. Each member of the family has their own quirks:
  • Dad: Annoying overoptimistic overbearing stereotypical salesman type who is on the verge of being broke and a failure.

Azureus: LAN peer finder

Submitted by Druss on Sun, 2007-01-28 05:35

Azureus is definitely one of the more popular torrent clients out there, and it just became a lot cooler in my eyes: I finally explored the LAN peering plug-in that it is packaged with. This is way beyond cool and accomplishes the equivalent of link bonding using torrents. So, essentially, consider the following scenario:

  • You have two PCs on your local network.
  • You have two Internet connections (both 1Mbps, for e.g.), one for each PC.

Windows XP : command vs. cmd

Submitted by Druss on Sun, 2007-01-14 02:15

I was asked by some dude online today as to what the difference was between typing command and cmd in the Start -> Run menu. To repeat my answer to him:

  • Typing command runs COMMAND.COM. Typing cmd runs cmd.exe.
  • command is basically the 16-bit command-line interface. It is essentially a legacy application. cmd, on the other hand is the 32-bit CLI, and is comparatively modern and more user friendly.

Mounting a Windows samba share in Linux a.k.a. how to avoid having to download a shared file in order to access it

Submitted by Druss on Wed, 2007-01-10 01:59

Problem: I've set up Samba on my Linux box and can access my Windows shares fine. However, every time I want to access a file from my Windows share, Linux, difficult motherfucker that it is, downloads the file, stores it in a temp directory and then plays it.. So, if I want to play .. say a 1.4 GB movie, I have to download the entire damn thing across my network to see it.. Not Good Enough.
