Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Shouldn't that be 0x00101010 in that case?

Isn't that a prefix telling the compiler that the integer is written in hexadecimal?

Wouldn't know, I rarely talk to compilers, something niggled at me from Windows Autoscript.. and of course those BSODs I'm so familiar with..

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

42 = Decimal
101010 = Binary
52 = Octal
2A = Hexadecimal

It's all the same ... but Deep Thought just didn't realize that the ANSWER is really:

42 with Linux
101010 with Linux
52 with Linux
2A with Linux

Seven and a half million years to get it WRONG!  What a shame!!

Start here and go on for 7.5 million years!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

A couple of years ago, I had the lenses of both eyes replaced. In the meantime, my right eye developed some sort of clouding. The doctor said it was behind the lens. So, yesterday, she used a carefully aimed laser beam to zap out the clouding material. She shot it about 50 times. Immediately afterwards, I was just about completely blind in my right eye, but now it is much better. I can see better, too.

Also, congratulations, vrkalak!

Cataracts Tim?  My MIL had that done about 8 month ago.  Now she doesn't need glasses.

Since the replacement lenses are of a fixed focal length, I now don't need glasses for far sight - 20/20 vision as checked by my surgeon's staff prior to my recent laser surgery. However, I do need reading glasses (+2.5) and computer glasses (+1.25) for near vision. Luckily, cheap reading glasses do just fine for this.

Glad to see that you "old" F**ts are still here. I passed the 69 mark this year and am gearing up for the big 7-0 next year. Aside the from the typical age-related aches and pains. I can't complain.

Before I forget (which seems more frequent these days), do any of you geezers have a link to good info about troubleshooting a crashed OS in TTY?  glasses

If it is a systemd OS, you can use journalctl to see what happened.

Yup, I did that but wasn't sure exactly what happened. Whatever it was, it seemed to be Apple related and that the HDD (the third in 6 years) had bit the dust. The good news is it gave me an excuse to buy a System76 desktop pc. lol

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Reference 'systemd' ... being a coffee lover I like this site: HighOn.coffee: systemd cheat sheet  or the ARCH wiki

And then there is cheatography.com for all your cheat sheet needs.  smile

However, saying that, unklar's .svg image (link to) prints out beautifully!  Danke unklar!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Hey Sector11, thanks to you as well for sharing the systemd cheatsheet info. I need it. Sometimes I break my setup and get tired of reinstalling, so I'm hoping that I can "fix" what I break.

A case in point, I decided to get "creative" with LightDM on my arch-based distro and added a line in the config file. The problem was that I after I did that I couldn't log in. I tried to reboot via TTY and that didn't work. I tried to use the install disk and chroot whwd, but couldn't access the config file. So I had to reinstall. Luckily, I saved everything before I played with the config.

More recently, I performed a system update before I read that certain things could break it. Guess what? It broke and I tried all the cli combinations that various people recommended, but nothing worked. But then I discovered that my desktop pc also decided to give up the ghost at the same time....  sad

Then, my arch-based distro on my laptop also crashed, not because of the distro upgrade, but because I broke it by messing with another config file. Aaaarrrggg!  yikes

Meanwhile back at the ranch, the Mrs., whom I recently converted to Linux after a long struggle, wasn't happy with the situation. I installed Mint on the laptop and restored her and my home folders. She's happy now, so I'm happy. I also had to promise not to mess with config files, but ...  you never know....  devil
