How to Prevent RSI on Linux and Windows

Image
Hi guys :D
This post is really important for office workers. Programmers. Bloggers. Not gamers! Gamers would hate me forever for suggesting something like that!! Sitting at the computer for prolonged hours is not good for you. It's related to many back and neck pains, wrists too! And don't forget the eyes now!
There are ways to prevent these pains. You need to get up every ten minutes or so. And move a little bit. But who will remind you of that? And who has the time for that really? There are tools that remind you to get up and move! And that's where my tip comes to play! But the Internet is so tempting! I'm really focused here! I keep forgetting to get up There are softwares for that you know! These softwares will remind you to wake up, stretch and flex! So you comeback to your computer refreshed! You must visit a doctor if symptoms arise. These are prevention measures only and CANNOT subtitle a doctor's visit!! Now that we understood the whole deal. Let's look at the…

Increase Ubuntu Battery life with these easy tricks

Image
Many new Linux users are surprised by the fact that their batteries don't last as long as it did. On top of adapting to a new system, this comes along to add strain to them. At ease new Linux users and older ones a like. I have a trick up my sleeve that's guaranteed to work!!
It's called PowerTop. And what it does is pretty simple. It allows you to disable some services while unneeded to save battery. To download power Top go to the terminal and type in: “sudo apt-get install powertop” without the quotes of course!! And enter your password to continue.
It's really small. About 150KB. So it shouldn't take long to download.

How to use Powertop to save power? After it's downloaded. Type in: “sudo powertop” to display the program.
It runs within the terminal. It doesn't have a graphical interface. But it's really easy to use.
That's the main interface right there.


We move around using the TAB key on the keyboard. Until we reach Tunables. Now here thi…

التسوق الإلكتروني في ليبيا

Image
مقالتي هذا الأسبوع تدخل في موضوع أخر غير موضوع الكهرباء(الذي وجدت نفسي أبحر فيه دون حدود)، التسوق الإلكتروني. مع مراعاة أنها تمثل رأيي الخاص والشخصي المحدود بكمية المعلومات المتوفرة لدي، وهو قابل للتعديل حسب مايصلني من مستجدات!
كليبيين نحن محرومون من الكثير من التنوع التجاري بسبب عدم دعم نظامنا المصرفي لبطاقات الإئتمان، وعدم وجود وسيلة شحن ملائمة، مايعني أن السوق في ليبيا (خوذ ولا خلي). تنوع البضاعة الهائل لايعني شيئا، فهي مجرد صور! لشرائها يعني أن يكون لديك بطاقة إئتمان! وعنوان شحن! وطبعا عملة صعبة لتشتري بها D:


موقع Paypal الشهير لايدعم ليبيا، ولايفكر حتى في ذلك، من المعروف أنه طريقة للشراء منE-bay وبالتالي نحن من ذلك محرومون! 


شركات الشحن ليس عادلة! وتفرض تكاليف باهظة في الشحن وطريقة حسابها مستفزة وغير عادلة نهائياًَ !! لنفترض أنك إشتريت وصلة USB ثمنها خمس دولارات٫ سيكلفك شحنها 28 دينار ليبي!! كيف!؟
لأن وزنها نصف كيلو! هذا حسب الشركة المصون(أي وزن تحت النصف كيلو جرام يساوي نصف كيلو جرام، وأي وزن فوق النصف كيلو ولو بجرام يساوي كيلو جرام كامل!) فتضطر متحسرا لشراء أغراض لا…

3 years blogging Anniversary, One year of Dual boot

Image
Hi guys :) I'm so happy! This day marks my third blogging anniversary. I can't believe three years has passed already!!


And I know why I didn't post last year's anniversary. Because I was running like mad installing Windows 8. which made me a "dual-booter" (having Windows along side Linux), looking back having Windows 8 on board is nice, but problematic! I activated it days later and upgraded after that.
Expect the podcast later this day. I have some angles to straighten!

Have a nice day :)

إنقطاع الكهرباء، ماذا لدينا لنفعل؟

Image
سرني تفاعلكم مع مقالة الأسبوع الماضي حول مشاكل الكهرباء، لذا سأتجاهل قاعدتي الشخصية (مقالة واحدة في اليوم فقط) لأقوم بتكملة تلك المقالة. خطوط عامة حول الأزمة بعد أن فهمنا ماذا يعني طرح الأحمال، فلنفهم مالذي يحدث
الشبكة في ليبيا منهارة، وبغض النظر عما حدث أو يحدث فإن إرتفاع درجة الحرارة سيؤدي لقطع الكهرباء شئنا أم أبينا، تتفاوت ساعات القطع، فكلما إرتفعت الدرجة زادت ساعات الفصل.
يمكننا ببعض حسن التصرف المساهمة في تقليل العبء على الشعب خاصة وأن شهر رمضان على الأبواب، هل يمكننا ذلك؟ عزل المنزل حراريا
عزل المنزل يعني أن البيت يحتفظ بالدفء والبرودة، مايعني تقليل تكاليف التبريد والتدفئة، وبالتالي تقليل صرف الكهرباء والحمل على الشبكة!
حتى في أشد الأيام حرا، ساعات الصباح الأولى تكون باردة، إستفد منها بفتح النوافذ ثم أقفلها عند إشتداد الحر، وإن كنت تعاني من دخول الحشرات فضع شبكة (ريتي) على النافذة.
ليس من الضروري تشغيل فلاش 2 كيلو وات طول الليل والنهار، إن كنت كسولا ولاتستطيع إطفاؤه فالأفضل ألا تفتحه.

اللامبات البيضاء توفر 80% مقارنة بالصفراء وتعيش 8 أضعاف العمر، يك…

مشكلة الكهرباء العويصة، هل من حلول؟ ربما لدي واحد!

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته


أمل أن تكونوا بخير وصحة وعافية. وأن تكون لديكم كهرباء اليوم ولم تقطع بسب الأحمال أو الإشتباكات (أو أي كان عذر هذا الأسبوع).

Hey there you guys!
How are you today? I hope you are doing good!
As I am writing this. You will see a lot of “feel” and “felt” being thrown around. It's that much devotion I have to my writing. I haven't really used any tools to benchmark the performance. All I used was my “feeling” and of course. Loading times, shall we?
