Rumors of new Gnash functionality exaggerated

This really sucks. When I use Debin I have to install the flash player for FireFox from a different source you get all your other applications within Debian. This is done by modifying the apt-get configuration file. Other Distribution’s you have to download the linux plugin from Adobe and install it manually. Rumors of new Gnash functionality exaggerated – A free Flash viewer is one of the last major gaps in GNU/Linux desktop functionality, so last week’s news that Gnash, the free Flash player, had reached the stage where it could play YouTube and Lulu.tv videos seemed too good to be true.

Read/WriteWeb has created a list of their top web applications for students - but honestly, anyone who wants to be more organized could benefit from this list.

Do you see anything missing from this list? Let's hear it in the comments.

Super “strace” perl script to assist with debugging programs that spawn child processes.

If you have ever ran into a problem with trying to strace apache or other processes that spawn children, then this script will help you out greatly. This small perl script will grab all of the PID's of the current process and its children and then run an strace command on all of them to provide strace output from all of apache. You can modify the strace line to your liking as well as the log names, by default it logs to a file based on date and time to the /tmp directory. Code included, click 'Read More'.
