khtml2png is a helpful tool for capturing an image of a webpage with ease. It's nice to use because it will get the entire length of the site, no matter whether it is fully visible in the browser. And, it sure beats shell scripting Firefox to open on a different display and capturing an image with Imagemagick

Emacs is an absolutely wonderful text editor for designers, and it can speed up development time with a series of helpful shortcuts, even for a Textmate diehard. Unfortunately, Emacs can have a steep learning curve, so I figured I would provide a basic introduction for using Emacs as a web development environment.
When you are laying out a new design for a web site, the last thing you generally want to do is create a ton of images for the layout. You might make a rounded corner or shadowed text in Photoshop, but that is wasted time if the client doesnâ€™t like it or the website doesnâ€™t turn out as expected. Therefore, hereâ€™s a list of some of the different CSS hacks you can use to get around using images.
Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux inspired from â€œflyback projectâ€ and â€œTimeVaultâ€.The backup is done by taking snapshots of a specified set of directories.Keep in mind that Back In Time is just a GUI. The real magic is done by rsync (take snapshots and restore), diff (check if somethind changed) and cp (make hardlinks).
Back In Time acts as a â€œuser modeâ€ backup system. This means that you can backup/restore only folders you have write access to (actually you can backup read-only folders, but you canâ€™t restore them).
I finally got Ubuntu 9.04 installed and all was well.
But I couldn't leave well enough alone.
I installed a video card - NVIDIA Ge Force 5200 (256MB).
Now Ubuntu hangs at the boot screen and I have to manually shut down to reboot. I tried reinstalling - didn't help.
Here's the specs:
Dell Dimension 2300
windows XP sp3
Pentium 4 - 2 Ghz
640 MB RAM
160 GB Hard Drive
Also - ubuntu is installed inside windows xp. I installed the driver that came with the card.The card works fine in windows.
I'd love to hear any suggestions.

After booting with the CD inserted I arrive at the screen with the option "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer". After selecting this option I see a bar graph on the monitor that indicates progress. Once that bar graph reaches maximum the screen goes black. The cursor is visible and responsive but otherwise the screen is blank. Waiting doesn't seem to help.

My notebook has 512mb of memory and I want to upgrade to 2GB. What brand and type is the best?
Hi, I'd be really grateful for any help that anyone can give. I successfully installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a laptop inherited from a relative, but I now want to load LinuxMint instead. I got hold of an installation CD, but the problem is that when I put it in the drive, Ubuntu just totally fails to recognise what it is. I just get a message saying I've put a blank CD in the drive, and asking what I want to do with it. I know there's nothing wrong with the CD as it works fine on my Windows XP pc, and it's not the drive as Ubuntu quite happily recognises and plays CDs and DVDs. I've been into the bios and made the optical drive the primary boot source, but to no avail. I'm really worried because if I can't use *any* OS installation CDs in the future, then I'm stuck with Ubuntu. I'd really welcome some help, preferably in really basic, step by step plain English as I'm totally new to Linux. Thanks!
TuxOnIce is most easily described as the Linux equivalent of Windowsâ€™ hibernate functionality,but better. It saves the contents of memory to disk and powers down. When the computer is started up again, it reloads the contents and the user can continue from where they left off. No documents need to be reloaded or applications reopened and the process is much faster than a normal shutdown and start up.
