the rain

in my heart, in my heart...

the hope

on the cloud, on the cloud...

the dream

far away, far away...

the tomorrow

sing the same, sing the same...

the date you installed system

There is no specific log for the date you installed system. But two way to know it from other log. The one is find out the system installer log record what happened when the system be installed. in Debian, sudo head /var/log/installer/syslog could show the date. The second is find out the time the root partition be created. Suppose root partition is /dev/hda1, sudo tune2fs -l /dev/hda1 | grep create could show the date.

sample yafc

yafc is very like lftp, but some different. yafc support Kerberos4, and it own better command interface more near unix command. for example, get -r could get a directory form remote, rm -r could remove directory from remote. But lftp support script input for using lftp -f script. The ability doesn't exist in yafc. Another ability more easy to use in yafc is customizing interface. It also work like unix shell. Use yafc --dump-rc > ~/.yafc/yafcrc to create a rc file, and modify the setting become your favorite type, so friendly.

sample cftp

cftp is a full-screen console based ftp/sftp client, very easy to use for new user shift from windows need window based ftp client. But it is still need user understand some vi short key. Anyway, It still very helpful for new shift user. Just type in cftp -u username hostname to connect destination server. and use H, J, K, L could move within every directory. It is not famous in my friends maybe causing by its interface is not friendly with geek who work more effective in using ls, put, get :p.

tip for using space

It is very boring that using F8 to show all space partition and drag the window into another partition. Tonight the little discovery make me so happy. I just need to drag the window to the edge of desktop and double click the space key, and the window shift into the other partition beside the edge. Mac OS X is always make me amazing everyday. :D
