CDisplayEx and full screen views

Submitted by Druss on Wed, 2011-04-13 13:25

I'm a big fan of comics and when on Windows, I tend to use CDisplayEx as my preferred reader of choice for .cbr and .cbz files. When on my desktop, I enjoy reading comics in full screen glory. I like each page fitting the entire width of my screen and scroll down the page, if need be, to reach any hidden panels. This allows me to realise the full impact of the art and makes for comfortable viewing.

Recovering an accidentally closed tab in Google Chrome

I have gotten used to relying on Opera's tab recycle bin feature to reopen closed tabs. However, earlier today, I found myself accidentally closing a tab in Google Chrome, and what's more I had an unfinished forum comment which I had worked on for 20 minutes in said tab.

Earlier today, I wanted to prefix a number of image files on a server with a 0. If this was on my desktop, I would have simply used a graphical tool such as the excellent Métamorphose. However, in this case, only a command-line was available. While Google threw up a number of bash scripts, I was curious to see if this could be done in a cleaner and more concise manner. Following the excellent reference to sed and more Google magicking, I arrived at

I just finished upgrading Eclipse from Galileo to the new Helios release. I performed the upgrade by adding Helios to the software sources list and updating and all seemed to go well. However, when I restarted Eclipse, I got a splash image which indicated that the upgrade had gone through and then ran into the following error message:

When I attempted to make a commit using TortoiseSVN today, I was told that there was a problem and that I would have to run the cleanup command to sort things out. Running the command, however, resulted in the following further error message:
