ipvee.com your system info in style

ipvee.com - find your real ip address, hostname, web browser, flash, java, operating system, screen resolution information_1246868715424

I first read about ipvee.com on wingloon.com.

ipvee.com is a simple service that returns your system infomation but with a twist. Eye candy, the guys behind ipvee.com decided to go with a web 2.0 visual appeal with bold large text on bright colors and cool sliding tabs. See the screen shots, they speak for themselves.

So what system info you can pull off ipvee.com you ask?

1. find your real ip address

2. show hostname

3. show ip address

4. identify your browser

5. identify your operating

6. identify you screen resolution

All you need to use ipvee.com is either macromedia flash or java script. ipvee.com works with either one.

O ya, before I forget. HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY wingloon.com !!

Installing ps3mediaserver on Fedora 11

Most of my movie and audio files are on my Linux box.  Currently, I use ps3mediaserver to get all my media across to my PS3 which is my media center. Aaaaa… the simplicity is just amazing.

PS3mediaserver is Java based and getting it set-up is a breeze. Here’s how,

1. Download the tar package. Remember to download the most recent version. Look here

[danesh@jackal ~]$ wget http://ps3mediaserver.googlecode.com/files/pms-linux-1.10.5.tgz

2. Extract the download tar package.

[danesh@jackal ~]$ tar -zxvf pms-linux-1.10.5.tgz

3. Go in to the new extracted foder and start the server by executing the “PMS.sh” script. Also, remember to give execute rights to the “PMS.sh” script by running chmod +x.

[danesh@jackal ~]$ chmod +x PMS.sh

[danesh@jackal ~]$ cd pms-linux-1.10.5

[danesh@jackal ~]$ ./PMS.sh

That’s it, turn on your ps3 and start enjoying your new media server.

Linux Tip #9: Create multiple folder or files

Sometime it’s necessary for you to create multiple folders or files. This is normally the case for me when I’m working with the clusters at my work place. Fortunately, In Linux this is easy.

Using the “for loop”, one could easily put together a one-liner to see results. See sample below.

The initial “ls” shows that the directory is empty.

[root@abubu test]# ls -l
total 0

Now, make the magic happens. Run “for ((i=1;i<=10;i++)); do mkdir ./folder-$i; done”

[root@abubu test]# for ((i=1;i<=10;i++)); do mkdir ./folder-$i; done

Now, “ls” will give you 10 folders. 😉

[root@abubu test]# ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-1
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-10
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-2
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-3
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-4
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-5
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-6
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-7
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-8
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 30 15:49 folder-9
total 40
[root@abubu test]#

This is just one way to do this. Please feel free to comment if you know a better way.

Yin Yang by downrodeo on TEEFury


Alan’s got a new shirt out on TeeFury titled Yin Yang.

The design’s a Ying and Yang depicting a dragon and a tiger on it with vibrant colors. O ya, the design’s hand drawn and finished with water colors.

If my sources are right, Alan’s the first Malaysian to have his design sold on TEEFury. Awesome!!

It’s goes on sale today and will be for only 24 hours. The TEE will only run you USD 9 + USD 5+- for shipping which I find to be super duper cheap.

Grab one!! I am!!
