Change to Wordpress

Thursday, January 05, 2006

I am in the process of changing this blog over to a wordpress based install. I have used a free hosting provided Zeeblo and currently using a free .be domain name.
You can view the current blog at http://www.fslog.be and am planning to buy a .com domain.
Please support me in buying a domain name by paypal to srinivasanr@gmail.com.
Update: I have bought a new domain name http://www.fslog.com and this is the new home. I have to change the template to automatically redirect the page.

Krusader - File Manager for GNU/Linux

Monday, January 02, 2006

Krusader is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager for KDE and other desktops in the *nix world, similar to Midnight Commanger or Total Commander. It provides all the file management features you could possibly want along with extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support with a built-in mount manager, search module. It also has an internal viewer/editor. You can also rename whole batches of files.
It also has FTP/SAMBA accessing with SFTP/SCP support. So you can safely send your files accross the network. It is a nice tool and I must thank Iain for pointing out this one.

Baobab - Analyze disk space graphically

Sunday, January 01, 2006

Baobab is cool little tool to analyze disk space usage graphically. It displays the space used by directories on your hard drive, so you know what’s eating up all your space. It is sort of the like the application called “tree” that’s available for windows. Baobabs are large trees, usually found in Africa - so that’s a real nice name for the tool.
