Flash cookies are a way to identify you even if you disabled your browsers identification and even all your cookies. Here's a guide how to disable flash cookies. Basically it deletes ~/.macromedia and creates a symlink to /dev/null instead. :) I suggest to delete .macromedia/Flash_Player and symlink that to /dev/null. That way it won't interfere with other macromedia software.

You can see what cookies are already installed with e.g.
find ~/.macromedia -iname '*.sol'
strings .macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/#skype.com/settings.sol# helps to see what's inside the cookies.
You probably also want to disable or restrict google's cookies. And you might want to opt out of Google Analytics. A quick overview and opt-out page for the other large advertising group's cookies

Also check how to disable Facebook tracking you on other websites. And you may just want to install the Chrome AdThwart extension.

The just released Flash 10.1 supports a mode without flash cookies if your browser supports a private surfing mode and Flash is compatible with your browser's setting. I think that's mostly Firefox.

Rotes Fleisch

Rotes Fleisch erhöht Ihr Sterberisiko
von S. Schneider

Schon lange wird die Frage heiß diskutiert: Ist weißes Fleisch gesünder als rotes? Eine große Studie der National Institutes of Health (NIH) an 545.000 Amerikanern zwischen 50 und 71 Jahren belegt nun, dass der Genuss von rotem Fleisch lebensverkürzend wirkt. Wer viel rotes Fleisch vertilgt, stirbt folglich früher. In den zehn Forschungsjahren starben 71.000 Studienteilnehmer. Etwa 11 Prozent der Männer und 16 Prozent der Frauen hätten länger leben können, wenn sie weniger rotes Fleisch gegessen hätten, so die Forscher. Bei den Männern, die täglich knapp 250 g rotes Fleisch aßen, erhöhte sich das Krebstodrisiko um 22 Prozent, das Herztodrisiko um 27 Prozent. Bei Frauen wuchs das Krebstodrisiko um 20 Prozent, das Herztodrisiko sogar um 50 Prozent.

Zum roten Fleisch zählen Rind- Schweine- und Lammfleisch. Die Empfehlung lautet, nicht mehr als 300 g in der Woche davon zu vertilgen.

Bleiben Sie natürlich gesund!

Der dumme Vegetarier!

Linux Kernels 2.6.24 - 2.6.29 Benchmarked (Phoronix)

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Tuesday, March 24, 2009

I've read the newest Phoronix benchmark of all kernels 2.6.24 through 2.6.29 and if you don't follow the link now, I'll spoil it for you in the next paragraph...



Okay, so besides some normal fluctuations there is a significant speed gain for OpenSSL (+99%) and the OpenCL-backed Graphicsmagick (up to +73% and +80%) and a regression in 7-zip compression (-27%).

Wow - fascinating stuff. I wonder how much potential kernel code optimization has. I still remember the extreme difference between 2.4.x and 2.6.x. I had just bought a new computer because my old one was... getting old. And I felt completely cheated. The new kernel had brought me much more increase in responsiveness and "felt performance" than the new computer (AMD Duron 700 Mhz -> Athlon XP 2500+). If I could I probably would've brought it right back to the store. Well, they don't take returns on self-build computers here.

I really wonder how much difference the intel compiler compiled kernel makes in comparison to gcc. Maybe Phoronix could compare that one, too? Oh yeah "... boost up to 40% for certain kernel parts and an average boost of 8-9% possible" quotes LJ.

Automatic Backups on Linux (IBM)

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Monday, March 23, 2009

Darn them. They just wrote the article I was planning to write and get famous with: Automatic backups over SSH with Keychain and Scp... well, I suggest to use rsync instead. That way it's fast enough to regularly run over internet without even using a lot of bandwidth. (See "Tiny Backup Script with Rsync" under "You might also like".)

By the way, look at their crontab:
34 3 * * * /home/backups/remote_db_backup.sh
34 20 * * * /home/backups/remote_db_backup.sh

Could've simply written:

"Never use the second pass encoding again" - Using 'Constant Ratefactor' Instead of Average Bitrate in x264

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Sunday, March 22, 2009

Okay, I may not be able to completely fulfill that promise, but you will most likely be saved from the second pass and thus a lot of encoding time quite often with this tip. If you don't need the resulting file to e.g. fit on a CD, Constant Ratefactor aka Constant Quality is probably perfect for you. Let me supply you with a quick overview and my quick mencoder script that does the job.

Did you know you can use a roughly vorbis-like quality selection, constant quality crf even in x264? This will save you a lot of encoding time with more or less the same quality. Or maybe not? Well it will look different, but it should be fine. For x264 a range of 18-26 is recommended. The higher the number the lower the bitrate and thus the file size will be.

Nice! Finally I don't need to adjust and calculate bitrates myself anymore! The algorithms really seem to work, because when I now change the codec settings to more efficient ones (e.g. increase the frameref, subq or enable mixed_refs) the quality (SSIM) remained pretty similar, while the bitrate sank.

Some experience with the parameters: The mixed_refs parameter did regularly increase the SSIM for me, but also took a lot more time to encode. Frameref=2 increases the efficiency with little performance impact in my experience. I wonder why it's not the default. Bframes decrease the quality slightly but shave a lot off the bitrate and even increase performance a bit for me.

Let me show you my "quick" example script for mencoder.
#!/bin/bash

CRF=23.5 # 21-26 recommended, the higher the smaller the resulting file, see http://mewiki.project357.com/wiki/X264_Settings#crf

INPUT="$1"; shift
X264OPTS="$1"; shift
OUT=`basename "$INPUT"`"-x264.avi"
echo Encoding $INPUT to $OUT

mencoder="time nice /usr/bin/mencoder -quiet -cache 16384"
enc="$mencoder -ovc x264 -oac copy -x264encopts crf=$CRF:trellis=1:frameref=2:bframes=2:8x8dct:psnr:ssim:$X264OPTS"
# I suggest nr= of no more than 2 or 3 with current x264 from svn.
# something along the lines of -vf
# eq=contrast=20:brightness=2,hue=saturation=1.25 for bleak videos
# denoise3d for noisy and unsharp=l:3x3:1.045 for blurry videos.
# I recommend to try out the result with mplayer first.
# A combination of all may work well, too.

echo $enc -o "$OUT" "$INPUT" $*

[ -f "$OUT" ] && echo File exists && exit 1;

$enc -o "$OUT" "$INPUT" $*

# You can call the script like this:
# script.sh input [x264encopts] [mencoder parameters]
# $ sh menc.sh somefile.mpg "interlaced" "-vf crop=..." or
# $ sh menc.sh somefile.mpg "" "-vf crop=..." or simply
# $ sh menc.sh somefile.mpg
# to get the right crop settings try $ mplayer -vf cropdetect


Feel free to get out the flame thrower - or just make some productive comments.

How To: Comfortably Make your own WINE Bottles

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Saturday, March 21, 2009

If you're installing a few programs in WINE, you may notice that they tend to influence each other negatively. The fix is to install them in completely different operating system environments, also known as WINE bottles. This way it's easy to completely remove applications by just deleting their "bottle". Let me show you how to make this effortless with standard WINE and a simple shell script.

The script is the key part. You tell it a directory where you want your bottles installed and then it will create a new folder each time you install a program. Of course you may also install several programs into one bottle. Let's call the script wine-bottle, which I suggest to put into your $PATH:

!/bin/bash
# wine-bottle v. 0.2
# (c) 2009 Linux-Tipps.blogspot.com, (c) 2009 Joost @ http://home.student.utwente.nl/j.vanderhof
# newest version at http://linux-tipps.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-make-your-own-wine-bottles.html
# published under the GPL v. 3.0 http://gplv3.fsf.org/
INSTALLDIR="$HOME/.wine/bottles"; #Set this to where you want to put your Wine bottles
[ $# -lt 1 ] && #if you gave no parameters
echo "Please give me parameters! Usage:" &&
echo "Execute a program : $0 \"BottleName\" \"Program\"" &&
echo "Configure a bottle : $0 --conf \"BottleName\"" &&
echo "List bottles : $0 --list" &&
exit 1;
[ $# -lt 2 -a $1 != "--list" ] && #if you didn't give the right parameters
echo "Please give me at least two parameters or a --list parameter! Usage:" &&
echo "Execute a program : $0 \"BottleName\" \"Program\"" &&
echo "Configure a bottle : $0 --conf \"BottleName\"" &&
echo "List bottles : $0 --list" &&
exit 1;
[ $1 == "--list" ] && #if you want to list the bottles
echo "Wine bottles in $INSTALLDIR:" &&
ls -1 $INSTALLDIR &&
exit 1;
[ -d "$INSTALLDIR" ] || ( #if installdir is not existing
echo "Root of Wine bottles not existing: $INSTALLDIR" &&
mkdir "$INSTALLDIR"
) || ( #if installdir creation failed
echo "Could not create installation Directory: \"$INSTALLDIR\"." &&
exit 1);
which wine || ( #if wine is not found
echo "Wine not found, please install it first" &&
exit 1);
[ $1 == "--conf" ] && #if you wish to configure a bottle
WINEPREFIX="$INSTALLDIR/$2/" winecfg &&
exit 1;
#finally, the only remaining possibility is you want to run an application
PREF="$1";
shift; #drop first parameter to leave the command with its parameters
WINEPREFIX="$INSTALLDIR/$PREF/" wine "${@}";

You can now use this script almost like wine. The only difference is that you first need to tell it the bottle's name. E.g. wine-bottle lingopad setup.exe installs the program inside setup.exe into the bottle lingopad. I suggest using the "create Desktop short cut" option of installers, as it lets you easily start them later, without the need to use this script.

If you want to create a backup of your bottle, simpy put the bottle directory inside $INSTALLDIR together with the related .desktop file into an archive. If you want to manually start a program, you can of course still use wine-bottle from the shell: e.g. wine-bottle lingopad "$HOME/Wine/lingopad/drive_c/Program Files/Lingopad/Lingopad.exe".

You may also want to install a current wine via the wine ubuntu repository.

Let me know if you liked this howto!

Update: Updated to Joost's version, thanks!

Update2: It seems my script has inspired "Joost". He's created a version including a simple GUI. Check out his website.

Fixing XRANDR Caused High Latency with KDE4 - Display Flickering - Freezing Videos

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Friday, March 20, 2009

If you're using KDE4 you might be disappointed by a bug that causes high latencies and or a flickering (second) display. Here's a really easy explanation how to permanently fix that right now.

Go to System Settings, Advanced, System Services.


Then in the bottom uncheck "Detecting RANDR (monitor) changes", then press Stop on the bottom right. The problem disappears immediately now.

You may read more about the bug here and here. Thanks to Electricroo for the fix. By the way, you know you have this bug, if DDC EDID probes ("(II) intel(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines, (II) intel(0): EDID vendor") keep showing up in tail -f /var/log/Xorg.0.log and you know it's fixed once they disappear. If you don't have that message in your X log, your most likely don't have this issue.

Note that this will stop KDE from automatically detecting when you plug in an external monitor. But as the configuration doesn't yet work well anyway I think there's no detriment. And of course there will be other causes for latency, but this one was the only real problem for me.

Update:
Unfortunately it seems like the fix does not (currently) work for KDE 4.2. If you don't find the service in the list in KDE 4.1.x, this might be a good sign and show that it's already disabled. If you still find the messages in Xorg.0.log, the please post a comment and let's try to find a way around it. If there's no way to disable it, all you can do is file a bug for your distribution and refer to the here mentioned information.

The bug has already been reported for KDE 4.1 at the kde bugzilla. Please participate there if you see this problem in KDE 4.2. You might also help to get a fix by voting for it. Until that time you can probably use my previously posted dirty hack that works around the kde session management service (ksmserver) by starting the KDE4 environment manually - please let me know if this works for KDE 4.2 as well.

You can also try to manually disable all outputs you don't need in Xorg, but the instructions vary significantly between different graphics cards, setups, distributions etc. And of course that won't help you if you're using a dual screen setup. If you find instructions on how to do that, please let me know in the comments.

Update2:
For KDE 4.2, check your config file:
grep polling ~/.local/screen-configurations.xml
If it says polling false and after upgrading KDE to 4.2 you suddenly get the messages described above in Xorg.log, especially if the fix above worked for you before, then there's a bug somewhere in KDE. If you get polling true, you can try to reconfigure KDE to make it stop polling. (You can just edit the file and change true to false.)

Related: Automatically switch to connected External Display on Boot with XRandR shows you how to automatically set up your displays without just a single screen, so that you can disable xrandr.

Weight Gain is as Dangerous as Smoking | My City Link

Weight Gain is as Dangerous as Smoking | My City Link

unless you are having a baby weight gain can be dangerousA new study by Oxford University claims obesity is as dangerous to health as smoking.

Epidemiologist Dr Gary Whitlock of Oxford University, who led the analysis, said: ''Excess weight shortens human lifespan.

"In countries like Britain and America, weighing a third more than the optimum shortens lifespan by about three years.

"For most people, a third more than the optimum means carrying 20 to 30kg of excess weight. If you are becoming overweight or obese, avoiding further weight gain could well add years to your life.''

Sara Hiom of Cancer Research UK said: "Moderate obesity is becoming worryingly common in the UK and these factors combined are great cause for concern.

London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston says "It's not just the reduction in years of life that people should worry about it's the quality of life that is causing so many problems. Science has come so far forward that increasingly Doctors are keeping us alive but at what cost?"

"Elder generations are suffering from modern non life threatening plagues that can make life truly miserable . Arthritis, osteoporosis, altzhiemers, stroke, diabetes can make life distressing not just for the sufferers but for those around them too."

Much of the suffering is preventable, early detection is vital to avoid the worst and most painful symptoms of these diseases.

A good nutritionist can not only optimise your body to boost your immune system and reduce the risk of disease but also test for very early signs and risk.

ddrecue is better than dd, dd_rescue or dd_rhelp if you want to (try to) backup what's possible from a broken (hard or compact) disc. It creates a log file and which lets you continue interrupted backups. If you try to backup a broken cd or dvd it might help to use different dvd drives to try to read the disc.

Don't let it run over night or you might end up with an exhausted dvd drive that doesn't really want to read anything any longer.

Install Daily Fresh Ubuntu Directly over the Web

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim

If you're doing a fresh installation and you don't have a CD downloaded yet, I can recommend the netboot installer. It let's you download and install the freshest packages from a mirror near you. All you need as preparation is e.g. a USB-Stick that boots into grub. Checkout this howto.

Basically all you need to do is copy the kernel "linux" and the initrd "initrd.gz" to your stick. Then boot them from Grub and you can start your installation.

The great thing about it: During the installation you can chose whether to install Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu, etc. And you will automatically get the newest available packages right away. There's no need to fetch and install updates after the installation.

And getting the newest packages right away might save you a lot of trouble because of bad packages in the installation cd. And the network installer itself also gets updated regularly.

Aspirin birgt Risiken

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim on Saturday, March 14, 2009

Forscher warnen: Aspirin birgt Risiken

Aspirin wird oft Patienten verschrieben, die einen Herzinfarkt hatten.

Tödliche Nebenwirkungen von Aspirin

http://www.cbgnetwork.org/Ubersicht/Zeitschrift_SWB/SWB_1999/SWB03_99/Aspirin__Nebenwirkung/aspirin__nebenwirkung.html

Forscher aus dem englischen Sheffield hatten kürzlich sogar vorgeschlagen, das Mittel täglich einzunehmen, um einem Infarkt vorzubeugen.

Jetzt hat eine Studie diese Forscher widerlegt: Das British Medical Journal (BMJ) hat eine Studie veröffentlicht, die zeigt, dass Menschen trotz regelmäßiger Einnahme von Aspirin keinen besseren Schutz vor dem Infarkt hatten.

Die Ärzte warnen sogar vor schweren Nebenwirkungen: Es drohen Magen- und Darmblutungen und auch die Nieren können Schaden nehmen.

Acht Jahre lang Patienten untersucht: Für die Studie haben Wissenschaftler des Cardiovascular Research Institute der Dundee University (Schottland) 1276 Diabetiker mit Arterienerkrankungen untersucht. Diabetiker haben ein höheres Risiko für Herzprobleme als der Rest der Bevölkerung und bekommen auch oft Aspirin verschrieben. Eine Gruppe der Patienten erhielt von den Forschern regelmäßig Aspirin, eine andere Gruppe ein Scheinmedikament (Placebo).

Acht Jahre wurden die Patienten beobachtet: Hohe Dosis kann Magen und Nieren schädigen. Vor Beginn der Studie hatte keiner der Probanden einen Herzinfarkt. Anders danach: Von den Patienten in der Aspirin-Gruppe bekamen 116 einen Infarkt, in der Placebo-Gruppe waren es 117.

Eine erhöhte Schutzwirkung durch Aspirin ließ sich nicht feststellen. Die Forscher warnen sogar vor den schweren Nebenwirkungen einer regelmäßigen Einnahme des Medikaments: Es könne zu Blutungen im Magen kommen und zu Schäden an der Niere. Die Ärzte raten gesunden Menschen davon ab, täglich Aspirin einzunehmen. Autor: Gerd Schaller

Chemische Stoffe haben im Körper nix zu suchen.

Chemikalien in der Masse sind gefährlich, das summiert sich gefährlich.

Chemische Stoffe bekämpfen das Symptom, nicht die Ursachen!

Stoffe die fehlen, müssen Heilprozesse in Gang setzen!

Bei Kopfschmerzen fehlt kein Asparin! Sollen die Auswirkungen oder/und die Ursachen behandelt werden?!

OPC verbessert 5-fach mehr die Fließfähigkeit des Blutes, stabilisiert Kollagen und Elastin der Gefäßwände, neutralisiert Freie Radikale und vieles mehr und das alles OHNE Nebenwirkungen.

Und bei Mikräne fehlt Histamin. Das hat die Aloe Vera.

Von Hippokrates, dem berühmten Arzt der Antike, stammt der kluge Satz: “Der Arzt hilft die Natur heilt.

„Harmlose" Schmerzmittel gibt es nicht, auch wenn Ihnen die Werbung das gerne suggeriert. Jede eingenommene Schmerztablette hinterlässt Spuren in Ihrem Körper. Viele Menschen denken, dass ein rezeptfreies Schmerzmittel nicht viel Schaden anrichten kann - ein gefährlicher Irrtum!

So ist Acetylsalicylsäure (Aspirin, ASS) alles andere als ein Lutschbonbon, denn es kann tödliche Magen-Darm-Blutungen verursachen. In den USA sterben jährlich über 16.000 Menschen an durch Acetylsalicylsäure verursachten inneren Blutungen.Eine Einnahme von wöchentlich zwei oder mehr Tabletten ASS über Jahre hinweg erhöht Studien zufolge bei Frauen das Risiko für Bauchspeicheldrüsenkrebs um glatte 58 Prozent!

Das weitverbreitete Schmerzmittel Paracetamol wird seit 1. Juli 2009 ab einer bestimmten Dosierung rezeptpflichtig. Der Grund: die Gefahr schwerwiegender Leberschädigungen durch den Wirkstoff!

Auch Ibuprofen wird häufig gegen Kopfschmerzen eingenommen. Als häufigste Nebenwirkung treten Magen-Darm-Beschwerden auf; die regelmäßige Einnahme kann Leber und Nieren irreversibel schädigen.

"Es gibt nur zwei Krankheitsursachen: Mangel und Gift" Adelle Davis
Chemische Stoffe bekämpfen das Symptom, nicht die Ursachen!
(Bsp.: bei Kopfschmerzen fehlt kein Aspirin, Gehirnwäsche! Sollen die Auswirkungen oder/und die Ursachen behandelt werden?!)
Stoffe die fehlen, müssen Heilprozesse in Gang setzen!

Neue Forschungsergebnisse: Ingwer kann selbst schwere Muskelschmerzen wirksam lindern

S. L. Baker

Vergessen Sie Aspirin und die Pharmakonzerne, wenn es um Ihre Muskelschmerzen geht. Nach einer neuen Untersuchung, über die erst kürzlich in der Zeitschrift der Amerikanischen Schmerz-Gesellschaft Journal of Pain berichtet wurde, kann der tägliche Verzehr von rohem oder wärmebehandeltem Ingwer starke Muskelschmerzen und –beschwerden wirksam lindern; das gilt selbst für starke Schmerzen nach anstrengendem Training.

What packages are installed in Debian/Ubuntu

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim

Howtoforge has a nice article on how to install the packages you've installed on another computer. It's written for debian and ubuntu systems, including step by step screen shots for doing it in Ubuntu with Synaptic. Here's how you can do the same thing in CLI(also in that article):

sudo dpkg --get-selections "*" > package_list
and
sudo dpkg --set-selections < package_list && sudo apt-get -u dselect-upgrade

Oh and from the article's comments: The method only works well if you use the exact same version of Ubuntu on both computers. Let me add that it only works at all if you have the same /etc/apt/sources.list and sources.list.d/* files on both computers.

Flashing your BIOS with a bootable CD

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim

Here's a quick howto. I think it would probably be much easier if you'd just use a 2.88 MB floppy image which I think is supported as well. Also be aware that flashing your BIOS from a CD is not supported by most vendors and thus might even void your warranty. But hey, at least you won't need to install Windows.

Here you can change your google ad tracking settings and chose to prevent Google from tracking your preferences. There's also a plugin that ensures that the tracking remains deactivated even if you delete your cookies.

Automatically switch to connected External Display on Boot with XRandR

Diposkan oleh Muhammad Tsani Abdul Hakim

I bought a notebook to be flexible, but when at home I use it with external monitor, keyboard and mouse to be comfortable. Now the problem was that I couldn't tell Ubuntu I want to only use the external monitor - if it's available.

Well, I've written a one-liner that fixes that problem. If the external display is attached, it will automatically switch over to it and display the internal display. Otherwise it boots normally (leaving the internal display enabled).

I put the script into the Xsession.d directory so it gets started for every user on boot: /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98vgaonly and made it executable.

The actual script line is this:
xrandr -q | grep 'VGA connected' && xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA --auto
It checks if the line 'VGA connected' was found in xrandr's query and then asks your X server to turn off the internal output and use the external one with automatic resolution detection.

So to automatically switch to a connected VGA during boot just execute:
echo 'xrandr -q | grep \'VGA connected\' && xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA --auto' | sudo tee /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98vgaonly && sudo chmod a+x /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98vgaonly


You may have to change the name of the outputs for your setup. xrandr -q will let you know what's available. It would probably be possible to somehow call this script automatically when plugging in a monitor, but I've not figured out how. xrandr only works when called from inside the running X session in my experience.


If you want to know more about XRandR, check this recent article.

Any comments are welcome!
