“Stay in Sync with GCal and Thunderbird” – nice and handy

October 25th, 2007 by

At last some nice integration with Thunderbird and google calendar.

This tutorial “Stay in Sync with GCal and Thunderbird.” makes it easy, and in early road testing seems to work very well – which is always nice.

man files in a browser

October 23rd, 2007 by

If reading man files off the command line is not your thing – or you might need to print it off, or you simply prefer to view things in a browser, then a handy command line option to man will open the man page you want to read in a browser of choice.

Say you want to open a man file on ls, then simply type:

$man ls --html=firefox

That will open the man file in firefox – nice and easy (and of course firefox can be replaced by browser of choice).
