For those of you who like to show off your desktop or want your bash prompt to be colorful and useful at the same time.
Lets start the day with a cartoon.
There is a nifty application called bashstyle at the sourceforge. The application helps you create a new bash prompt or select from the existing ones like the below ones:
Now that I have your attention, you can build your custom prompt also. I have been using this for sometime but every time I had to build it from source and thus I built a rpm for my use. If you want you can download here.
Today I learnt two things. One is that Hotmail has changed the look of the email on the web. Quite good change. Looks good.
Second is that when loggin in to the hotmail using my Fedora box with Firefox, I was always getting the annoying, you are not on supported browser and saw the fix on this link. The solution is as simple as changing the \”general.useragent.vendor\” for firefox. The way to do this is :
In the url line type:
when asked if you Promise not to damage or some such, click OK or dismiss the box
in the \’url\’ line, type
Double click that line. Type the word:
don\’t forget the capital.
go back to Hotmail.
[Edit] I found a better solution for the above. Use a user agent switcher and copy the value of the defalut settings to a new settings and then change the vendor to Firefox.
