Make Windows Search a Million Times More Useful with These Simple Tweaks. Refactor. Enable multiuser logins with VNC. VNC and X server architectures Linux® uses the X Window System (X for short) as its graphical user interface (GUI).

Enable multiuser logins with VNC

X is an unusual GUI in several ways, one way being that it's inherently network enabled. An X server is literally a network server program. Network server programs give client programs access to local resources, and this is true of an X server, as well. Apache OpenOffice 4 is here. Apache OpenOffice 4.0 has been released.

Apache OpenOffice 4 is here

This is the first major milestone release since the Free and Open Source software Office suite was donated to the Apache Software Foundation by Oracle. It is also the first Apache OpenOffice version that includes code and features merged from IBM’s Symphony. So this is not just a cleanup of the old OpenOffice code that you used to use before LibreOffice was forked from it. It’s much more than that. The list of new and improved features extends to all aspects of OpenOffice’s components – Writer, Impress, Base, Calc, Draw, and the list is a long one. VirtualHost Examples. This document attempts to answer the commonly-asked questions about setting up virtual hosts.

VirtualHost Examples

These scenarios are those involving multiple web sites running on a single server, via name-based or IP-based virtual hosts. Running several name-based web sites on a single IP address. Your server has a single IP address, and multiple aliases (CNAMES) point to this machine in DNS. You want to run a web server for and on this machine. Note Creating virtual host configurations on your Apache server does not magically cause DNS entries to be created for those host names. Server configuration # Ensure that Apache listens on port 80 Listen 80 # Listen for virtual host requests on all IP addresses NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /www/example1 ServerName

An electronic mailing list or e-mail list is a special use of e-mail that allows for widespread distribution of information to many Internet users.

Electronic mailing list

It is similar to a traditional mailing list — a list of names and addresses — as might be kept by an organization for sending publications to its members or customers, but typically refers to four things: a list of e-mail addresses,the people ("subscribers") receiving mail at those addresses,the publications (e-mail messages) sent to those addresses, anda reflector, which is a single e-mail address that, when designated as the recipient of a message, will send a copy of that message to all of the subscribers.

Unlocking the Dark Mysteries of Acme

It's only 13 lines of code. But that's 13 lines of Conway's code. I have also looked at similiar modules, such as Acme::Buffy, Acme::Buckaroo, and others, but I want to stick with Acme::Bleach. There's just something about Conway's coding style. Basically, Conway has 4 subroutines (whiten, brighten, dirty, dress) in lines 4 - 7. In lines 8 and 9, the current script is opened and everything up to and including "use Acme::Bleach" line is omitted from the $shirt variable.

Line 11 seems crucial: the content of $shirt is evaluated (i.e, executed) if the source code is not dirty (bleached or whitened). I guess most of my confusion stems from my lack of knowledge concerning the pack, unpack, local, pop, translate functions. At first, the final lines seem pretty transparent. The flow of this program escapes me. Bleach. Welcome home. VMware. Store: Recovery Media Purchase Program. Can i reuse the Windows product key under my laptop after a reformat.

We’ve all been there, we have a machine that has Windows installed on it and for some reason that machine is on the way out or we want to do something else with it, and we ask ourselves “Why can’t I just install it on another machine?”

Transferring Windows to Another Computer - Super User Blog

In the early years you bought your operating system, installed it wherever you needed it and as far as you were concerned you owned that software. Volume licensing was something big companies did, a home user with two machines bought one copy of the software, installed it on both and that was the end of it. The problem is that companies didn’t like you doing that, big companies want you to buy as many copies of the software as computers you own.

Two computers, two copies to buy. It’s only recently with the advent of the internet and almost everyone having at least some access to phone lines that companies have been able to come up with enforceable ways to prevent people from installing the companies software on every computer in sight.
