Ok, so after enough lawns mowing job...(heh, computer fix-it jobs) i saved up enough to get a dell 2007fp.

I got it on sale for 350$ i shall bask in it 20" goodness.
I chose it because of its s-video and composite inputs. This way i can use it as an LCD tv with my satellite TV. I currently have my gamecube hooked to it.

As its 16ms response time, i don't see any ghosting in games. It has surprised me how good it is.

Yay, free LCD

So i did some work for someone and they told me that thier LCD had caught fire, and they didn't have the receipt to take it back. I told them i would throw it away for them. Me being curiouse, i took it home and plugged it ni. i got the splash screen saying no signal detected. so i plugged it in to a video source and the screen went black, but you could tell it was still displaying trhe image. It then started to smell funny. So i called up LG, they said i could send it in without a receipt. So i did! They paid for the return and everything.

All said and done, i got a 17" LCD for free!

I gave it to my wife so should could have a PC in the living room.

Linux Commands

I am very forgetful, so i have been keeping a text file with a bunch or "useful" commands.

yes, i realize that a "manual" will give me info, but hell, who has time to decypher and test to see which switch will give you the right thing?
So, here are real world usages.

(shutup, this list is like 2 years old. i had to start somewhere)

Jump Drive:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/jump

Ether Adpter
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up

ip address
ifconfig -a

Renew (red hat or fedora)
/etc/init.d/
./network start
pump
dhcpcd

Directory Delete
rm -rf mydirectory

to check what files a package owns, use rpm -ql <packagename>

Check for available Access Points
# ifconfig ath0 up
# iwlist ath0 scan

adduser

Linux:# cd madwifi
Linux:# insmod wlan/wlan.o
Linux:# insmod ath_hal/ath_hal.o
Linux:# insmod driver/ath_pci.o

Linux:# ifconfig ath0 up
Linux:# iwconfig ath0 mode monitor

iwconfig ath0 scan

tar xzvf file
x for extract z for gzip v for verbose f for filename

make menuconfig

Assign required information to connect to your access point

# iwconfig ath0 essid ""

Jump Drive Removal
sync ; sync

Kismet color codes:
red = factory default
yellow = wep disabled
green = wep enabled
blue = uncloaked network

autorun stuff

chkconfig

ettercap -G -d -i ath0

Set card to monitor (atheros)
iwconfig ath0 mode monitor

Linux file transfer:

scp /root/dump.cap 192.168.1.103:~/

Mount remote Directory
smbmount //192.168.1.103/sharename /mnt/serve

GPS

Serial: gpsd -p /dev/ttys0 -n -s 4800
USB: gpsd -p /dev/ttyUSB0

process Id's
