Posted by abhiitechie on May 17, 2009

The Getting Started with OpenSOlaris 2008.11 mini-books were recentlyOpenSolaris released. They are available in English, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

You might notice that there is a difference between the content of these books. They are composed by three different documents, and only the ones in English, Simplified Chinese and Japanese have them all. All other languages have only one document.

The books have a pretty basic approach, so they are aimed at people who doesn’t have much experience with the OS. This makes them perfect to be indicated during basic courses and presentations.

It seems that the 2008.11 version of these mini-books will be available only in the digital format.

Download YouTube or Similar using Copy Paste

We watch videos on YouTube, Google videos, and all those FLV powered video sharing portals. We all want to download it and save it for our later pleasure. Ofcourse, lots of desktop applications and command line utilities are available. But if we are on Linux we can have youtube videos with simple copy paste.

The video that you are currently viewing is on /tmp/Flashfoo (the foo can be any random string. After the video is completely buffered, we just have to copy the file to our local disk for persistent storage. That is it.

We can watch as many you want and copy them too. Each of the Flash* files have a unique random character string.
