Emacs goto line

I was reading through this post and thought I can share my recipe for the same problem. In the past (3 years back) I had the same difficulty of instructing emacs to goto a line. Each time I want to do that I need to "M-x" and type "goto-line" (tab completion is there). But this is annoying since I may need to do this 'n' number of times while writing code.

If you see Java Runtime Environement (JRE) plugin not available in your Iceweasel or Firefox system and auto installation fail, asking you to do a manual install, then install the following package which will automatically put the JRE plugin in place in Debian/Ubuntu based systems.

# aptitude install icedtea6-plugin

The above loads JRE plugin in the web browser. I really wanted this in order to attend webex sessions from my Debian/Ubuntu boxes. Check your browser's Tools->Add-ons->Plugins which will have "IcedTea Java Web Browser Plugin" loaded after installing the above package.

Happy new year 2010

I ve started this new year 2010 with lots of energy, thats what my friends have described so far. I have a lot of plans queued to accomplish this new year. Those may be due to the side effects of the books I ve read in the past few days.

I started the new year in office with a new operating system Debian squeeze in my laptop, Cleared all my email queue in multiple accounts. I admire my desktop (in my laptop) with its new wallpaper, thanks to cmpilato

What next? Working...

Its been more than 3 years since I got my own domain name to host my website ie., www.stylesen.org Since I started my website it was hosted by one of my ex-colleague in his shared server (CentOS?). Today I moved www.stylesen.org to a new server (Debian Lenny) which has lots of space and unlimited bandwidth for me. Lets see how it goes! should closely watch the differences on this move.

Recently I moved stylesen.org to a different server and had the problem of logging in which resulted in a "access denied" error. After searching in drupal forums I came to know about this - http://drupal.org/node/93945

Recently Yahoo changed the way in which we connect to the IM, which broke Pidgin clients in Debian Lenny and Ubuntu systems, specifically pidgin client version 2.5.7 and below. We can correct it by doing the following if you don't want to upgrade your clients to something latest, Go to your yahoo account settings in Pidgin. You'll see two tabs at the top. Go to the second tab(advance). There you'll find, "scs.msg.yahoo.com" and a few other web addresses change it to *cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com*. Thanks to Vipin M of AU-KBC who gave this piece of info via ILUGC mailing list.

On last Friday ie., 05-06-2009, http://dev.tce.edu/ went live with "Redmine". The previous "trac" based site was replaced with Redmine, considering the ease of administering projects with a web interface. The alpha run (April 25th, 2009) of Redmine site was served using FCGI over apache which was very slow and the performance was not up to the mark. But now we run the production site using mod_rails over apache2 which is faster! Also the subversion repository creation is automated
