Fun With Time Lapse
Call me silly but I like to see work being done.  There are many times when I've stood back at the end of a large project with visible results and said "man, I wish I had a recording of that".  I keep saying that I wanted to setup a webcam to take pictures for a time lapse and today I finally did. The What: Logitech Pro 9000 Old laptop running Linux Tripod The How: Hook up the webcam to your laptop and point it where you want to take the shots.…
Modern Linux distributions typically have LVM resting between physical storage devices and the file system.  This is great for your OS and other data drives that are installed in your system or otherwise "permanently" attached.  The ext file system is designed to allow resizing as the underlying block devices are grow (or even shrunk in the right scenario).  But this does require that the file system reserve space to allow what's called the "block group descriptor table" to grow.…

My WIndows 7 desktop has a 75G SSD for a boot drive and a 1TB RAID1 array for a data drive.  That's a lot of stuff to lose if your computer goes tango uniform.  I've been hobbling along with a 1.5TB external drive for backups, but as my data drive fills up my backup drive is having difficulty keeping up.  About once a month Windows will tell me that the backup drive is full (which is funny considering that I have the "Let Windows Manage The Space On The Backup Drive" option selected).…
