  5. !TIL: In order to use an HP LaserJet P1005 in # I need to use systemd (which I have pinned for good reasons), because I need to install hplip-gui which requires systemd. So, if I want to use this printer, I have to change to a Linux distro (or another unixoid system) that does not depend on systemd. Debian, you're just dying for me.

  8. !TIL Je découvre qu'il existe des tracés qui sont propriétaires, non pas qu'ils traversent des terres privées, mais le tracé est soumis au droit d'auteur et on ne peut pas comme ça le publier. C'est un véritable appel au piratage : marcher pour faire la trace GPS, et la mettre sur le web.

    Non mais, quelle bêtise.

  10. !TIL: Im Kreis Cham (Bayern) zahlt man für eine Sperrmüll-Abholung mindestens 35 €, je nach Gewicht auch mehr. Oder man kann das Zeug nach Wackerling anliefern, aber auch dann werden einem noch mindestens 10 € abgeknöpft, in diesem Fall nach Volumen, und die Transportkosten hat man noch dazu. Übel. Hier in Düsseldorf melde ich das bei der Awista an & zahle gar nix.

  22. !TIL: When you mark a row or some rows in a LibreOffice Calc table and move its contents, and the row gets marked by „running ants“, Xorg (!) needs lots of CPU time in order just to show these „running ants“. In this case: ~ 50 % CPU on an AMD Dual Core 4850e with 2,5 GHz. I wondered why Xorg wants so much CPU time – until I closed LibreOffice … m(

  23. !TIL: Wenn man bei der Postbank Überweisungen auf Papier abgibt, dauert es schonmal ein paar Tage, bis sie überhaupt ins System erfaßt wird.

    Ja, es gibt Leute, die kein Online-Banking machen möchten. (Nicht ich. Freund von mir.)

    Nein, das ist kein Grund, die Überweisungsfrist – zwei Bankverkehrstage – massiv zu überschreiten und das Papier erstmal vier Tage lang beiseite zu legen.

  29. !TIL: copytruncate and dateext as parameters in /etc/logrotate.d scripts. First one empties and contiues with the same file after copying it for rotation as some programs don't use the file name as handle but the inode number and then (at least sometimes) continue logging into the rotated logfile. Second extends the names of the rotated logfiles by the current date.
