Don't you just hate it when you visit somebody's blog, see an embedded Youtube video, play it, and find that the player is missing the full screen button.
Yeah, this one: .
Well, I hate it too, so please, try not to be that guy. I realize sometimes you copy the embed code wrong or, on a larger scale, you add the wrong embed code to your generic template.
Not a problem. If your Youtube embeds are missing this button, here is how you can easily fix it.
Here's an example video that doesn't have the button (it's really good too, if you haven't seen it yet):
The fullscreen button is nowhere to be found because by default …
The Easiest (And Best?) Way To Search For Beautiful Wallpapers In Your Specific Screen Resolution And Size
There are undoubtedly a lot of wallpaper sites. Even more undoubtedly, most of them suck, both in content and filtering capabilities (by resolution, theme, etc).
My preferred way until recently was Deviant Art, because it had a lot of content and very nice filtering – I could specify my exact resolution.
However, as of some time ago, Deviant Art browsing by resolution disappeared, as evident from trying to find it on their site and from the comments on this post announcing the capability in the first place.
Sometimes the solution lies right in front of our eyes – we just have to open them to see it.
A while ago, Google Image Search expanded their support for …

Screen is awesome. Once you become comfortable navigating around it, you start using it ALL the time. No more dropped sessions, no having 10 Putty windows open at the same time, no more nohup.
However, with default screen settings I've always felt a bit lost and out of place, mostly because there was no "taskbar" with a bird's eye view of all windows. Pressing ctrl-a, " really does get annoying fast (that's the command that brings up the window selector – screenshot below).
So instead I modded my screen to have a "taskbar" which sits at the bottom of screen and adds:
- the name of each window
- a clear marking of window states, such as
- the currently active window
If you use VNC to remotely connect to your machines and are having problems with certain applications not showing changes (redrawing), this will, hopefully, solve the problem for you.
The symptoms are simple: you load a program but only the program outline and maybe the first frame would show up. After that, nothing would update, even though the user in front of the remote computer can see everything updating fine. For me, it is happening with all Java based programs (SmartSVN, Charles – amazing program btw!, etc). Here's what's happening to my Charles application – it never even sent the first frame, simply showing the desktop and not updating:
The problem may be confined to RealVNC …

I don't know about you but I've had a lot of problems making screen work nicely with YaST. Both putty and SecureCRT had major problems displaying YaST's ncurses interface. The screenshots below depict the problem quite clearly. If at this point you don't see anything like this, you are most likely not affected and can go get a beer.
If you are seeing similar problems, here's the fix. After digging around a bit, I have discovered that the problem was incorrect data encoding. My character set was set to KOI8-R while ncurses expected UTF-8. Here is how to change the corresponding setting in putty:
… and SecureCRT:
Now restart YaST and voila:
P.S. You may be wondering why my screen …
