Every US politician should set this website to thier homepage.

This post isn’t really ArchLinux related, but every once in awhile, I do read things OTHER than Linux and Arch :)
I had a friend send me this link, and to be honest the first time I visited it, I sort of dismissed it. I ventured across it again
while browsing my bookmarks and clicked it. The webpage is worth a thousand emails from constituents, it speaks volumes about
the world we live in now.

So, Mr/Ms Politician — Bookmark this link and make it your homepage !
US DEBT CLOCK

Do your country a favor and don’t forget who has to pay this back when your wasting money you don’t really have.
bookmark this page while your at it ! http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/

Making diff easier to read.

slapped this in my .bashrc file, thought i’d share

comp ()
{
diff -y -W 90 $1 $2
}

and if you use solaris

compare ()
{
gdiff -y -W 90 $1 $2
}

My current machines.

Veronica – Arch Linux 64-bit — Kernel 2.6.31.6-1
Archie/Jughead – Arch Linux 32-bit — Kernel 2.6.31.6-1
Betty/Reggie – Arch Linux (VBox) 32-bit — Kernel 2.6.31.6-1

Thought I’d share my current Arch machines.
I have several :)

Archie is the remote server at SevenL that runs this website.
2.80GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive.

Jughead is the counterpart to Archie that sits in my basement and runs several sites from my home connection.
Qty=2 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.60GHz, 4GB RAM, 640GB Hard Drive.

Veronica is my 64 bit system at home.
Qty=2 x86_64 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.60GHz, 3GB RAM, 640GB Hard Drive.

Betty is a virtualbox system on my work laptop. IT says I have to run windows on the laptop, but allows me to use Virtualbox… so, Arch in Vbox it is.
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9400 @ 2.53GHz,1.5GB RAM, 60GB Hard Drive.

Reggie my work desktop system. Same as above, can’t install it as the primary OS, but can install it via Vbox.
