Used it quite a bit 10-15 years ago.

It supports Groovy, the fastest dynamically-typed language. It also has a massive number of example to get started

Press the Delete or Escape key to access the BIOS.

There is the very brief quick guide, there is no ‘handbook’.

I have bought the AWOW AK41 but I cannot find the button to start the BIOS.
Do you know which button is the right one?

In addtion I’m looking for the handbook. Do you have an idea where I can get it?

Comment on Raspberry Pi 4: Chronicling the Desktop Experience – Reading Comics – Week 12 by selmf https://www.linuxlinks.com/raspberry-pi-4-chronicling-desktop-experience-reading-comics/#comment-1216 Thu, 03 Sep 2020 20:43:48 +0000 https://www.linuxlinks.com/?p=41248#comment-1216 YACReader dev here. Thank you for the glowing review. The main reason there are no Raspbian packages is that there are no official downstream Debian packages.
We have some semi-official[*] .deb packages though, which include Raspbian builds. You can find them at:

https://software.opensuse.org//download.html?project=home%3Aselmf&package=yacreader

For the Raspbian packages you need to choose Debian and then follow the instructions to add the Raspbian repo.

[*] Semi-official means that we use these to test building and packaging on different distros but do not actively test execution. They are also updated on a as-needed base, so if a newer distro is missing or there are other troubles you need to ping us on the YACReader forums

Comment on iftop – display bandwidth usage on an interface by Dan https://www.linuxlinks.com/iftop/#comment-1211 Tue, 01 Sep 2020 22:40:49 +0000 https://www.linuxlinks.com/?page_id=5192#comment-1211 How does the bar graph work at the top? it bounces all over the place from KB to GB and doesn’t seem to compare with total bandwidth usage.

In fact nload, nethogs, iptraf all suck. Is there no single tool that can just tell us current total network utilization on all interfaces and utilization over a period of time.

Comment on 21 Best Free Linux Financial Software (Updated 2019) by Alexander Daley https://www.linuxlinks.com/financial/#comment-1210 Tue, 01 Sep 2020 08:43:05 +0000 https://www.linuxlinks.com/?page_id=1531#comment-1210 Josh you’re right. After all, many people manage their finances with a pen, paper and calculator. If your finances can be managed with a spreadsheet, then you probably don’t even need a computer to do it. Spreadsheets are often misused in this way, often as a pseudo database.

A spreadsheet may be all you need for personal finance, but that’s definitely not sufficient for my needs. It’s a common mistake to conflate your own requirements with others.

I use LibreOffice Calc, but Gnumeric would probably work just as well.
