1. How to Reflash a Monitor with corrupted EDID
I do wish to share a useful program by author Mark Blakeney at GitHub.com which saved a 'faulty' monitor of mine from going to the scrap heap..
This program (edid-rw) allows you to 're-flash' the EDID chip inside a monitor to correct settings so that modern operating systems can boot it to nativ...

(ack:freedigitalphotos.net - imagerymajestic)
When you age to 40 - 50, most of us will need reading glasses or some equivalent for reading small text at a close distance.
This difficulty increases with age, slight for some but significant for others, and certainly increasing till the age of 60.
4. Linux Lubuntu - Recommend Apps
Internet - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:50:19
Being a derivative of Ubuntu/Debian, Lubuntu Apps can be installed with the same packages.
Most of these can be found by using the included Synaptic package manager.
Most users would have installed popular packages such as LibreOffice, but here are a few gems that are not so obvious. Hopefully,...
5. Linux Lubuntu - Bigger Mouse Cursor
computers-and-electronics - Sun, 24 Nov 2013 03:22:13
With bigger monitors these days, a bigger cursor is easier on the eyes.
I still can't believe Linux distros have not yet standardised an easy way to set the mouse cursor size in over 30 years. It sounds simple right ? Well, you'll be surprised how many people are Googling to find the answer for ...
6. MicroSD memory card Speed Tests
computers-and-electronics - Tue, 19 Nov 2013 00:02:01
Are Manufacturers claims true ?
Here are some speed tests results for comparison.
MicroSD cards. With so many brands out there, it's hard choose. So naturally, we scrutinise the package and advertisements. Speed Claims vary among different jargon about, classses and labels many people have never...
7. Linux - Faster Broadband Tweak
computers-and-electronics - Mon, 18 Nov 2013 20:41:40
Today, 100 Mbits/s connections are becoming more common.
Infact some countries are offering 1 Gbits/s to common households with fibre optic. Even if we're not talking about the internet, Gigabit LAN cards will soon become the norm, allowing blazing speeds beween PCs.
However, most Linux distrib...
8. Linux Lubuntu - Get Root Access
internet - Mon, 18 Nov 2013 20:26:23
One of the most annoying things about linux is not being the 'root' user all of the time meaning you have to find ways around it like having to enter passwords (fixed here ), having to use chmod, chown..etc so that you can have the privilage to do simple things when you shouldn't have to at all.
9. In Heaven as it is on Earth
computers-and-electronics - Mon, 18 Nov 2013 19:37:38
In Asia, especially China, there's an ancient tradition to pray for the dead. ..And burn stuff.
Most popular is Incense in the form of Joss Sticks.
Sometimes, dishes of food would also be displayed as a token of a meal.
They might even stick an incense on a fruit. You can think of the insense a...
10. How to cook Rice - Without a rice cooker
culture-and-society - Fri, 25 Oct 2013 03:16:55
We're talking about short grained white rice, the staple diet of many asian countries and ofcourse some others.
Being such a basic ingredient you would think you could just boil it like potatoes or pasta to complement your meals. Oh, don't fall into that trap. Rice has baffled many seasoned cook...
11. Moving to Linux - via USB Flashdrive.
food-and-cooking - Sat, 19 Oct 2013 17:35:26
As the years roll by there's been less excuse not to move to Linux as an alternative Desktop Operating System.
Compared to what it started out as, it's now more reliable, has more support and the Apps are better.
Infact the only leftover fear for non-geeks is Installation. Yes, "LINstallations"...
12. Portable Bluetooth Headphones - Has the time come ?
computers-and-electronics - Thu, 17 Oct 2013 22:58:28
I do hate to show my age, but I remember when the Sony Walkman first came out. Portable music found it's way into people's pockets big time. They were the rage, and the trend kept going, from cassettes to discs and to memory-storage players on our mobile phones.
What hasn't changed much, from th...
