UrlSnooper / URL Snooper have some competition :)
« on: November 05, 2010, 01:08 AM »

And no, it's not new and definitely not the only one, just noticed it myself... in two ways it's different to URL Snooper: It's open source and it's for linux & windows. Everything else seems to be just standard snooping thing... (what else should this kind of tool do? :)

As a European (living in Finland), this tipping in restaurant is so annoying thing when I do visit US (once in a two years or so). Everything else in US is pretty much the way I like it but when I'll go to restaurant, it's kinda strange because I have no idea, what that food I'm going to eat, is gonna cost me at the end... (of course I have some estimates but...).

And service... hey, I'm there just to eat something, not to ask to wipe my ass clean. Waiters are there only to ask what I want to eat, carry my drink(s) & foods for me and when I'm finished, get money for that food. I'm not expecting much more for a typical visit to restaurant. I don't expect waiters to give me a nice show when I'm eating, for that I'll go to movies/theater/somewhere else. Just plain basic, solid good service to get job done. And smiling should be free, no matter what.

In Europe, in many countries mandatory tipping doesn't exist. So no one expects you to tip but if you feel you're getting superior service, you're free to tip and make servers happy.

Here in Finland, when I go to restaurant, I quite rarely tip. But when I tip, there are good reasons for that. (same thing in many other European countries I'll visit).

That's my 0.02e for this discussion.

Unfinished Requests / UNANSWERED: *nix crontab parser/visualizer
« on: September 10, 2010, 05:51 AM »
I think I'm not the only one who have been looking for decent tool to parse *nix crontab to more visually readable format (HTML could be right tool for output).

With that tool, it would be easier to track down potential problems in crontab timing.

So output could be somekind of a pseudo calendar of what jobs kick off at what times. Or something else if someone figures out more ideal way to do it..:)

Or does someone already have good solution for this kind of need?

Very good friend of mine, got pissed how poorly old windows games using DirectDraw worked in modern windows and decided to do something for it...
And here is the whole story as well hacked DirectDraw driver with source code.

Hope this gives some joy to people, who have old games in their desks, collecting dust...
