I’ve used find extensively and always wanted to writeup a nice post on this, but the linked post trumps my effort! Copy pasted from his blog, as the person’s allowed to do so. Also, as a general note - before using exec with the actual command, do preview it! ` —————————————————————————————— remove empty directories —————————————————————————————— find . -depth -type d -empty -exec rmdir ` —————————————————————————————— change various file attributes ——————————————————————————————

Videos of Richard M Stallman’s Lecture in IIT-Bombay
· ☕ 1 min read · ✍️ Sathya

Richard M Stallman was in Bombay recently{#aptureLink_ezdj5ZajHB}, as I found when Aditya Sengupta{#aptureLink_G3xUyHaQjg} tweeted if anyone had questions{#aptureLink_ISHBjxViqn} for him. I asked Sengupta if there any plans to record the sessions and upload them, Sengupta said he’d have to check and come back. Few days after the event, Sengupta sent me an @reply saying that the videos had been uploaded, so thought I’ll post it here for easy reference.


Mission: Get Bluetooth Stereo Headset Working in Linux. Current Status: EPIC FAIL
· ☕ 2 min read · ✍️ Sathya

I’ve owned a Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 for nearly 2 years now{#aptureLink_GW9kUit5Kx}, and I use it pretty often with my previous phone ( the Sony Ericsson P1i{#aptureLink_Szc3RZREO3} ), and my current iPhone 3G. I also use it occasionally on my laptop. It has worked fine in Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7. Getting it to work with Linux, however has been an EPIC FAIL. The last time I tried it was probably a year ago, and I just gave up in frustration and continued to use my EP-630 as the earphone.
