    using Xautomation to screen scrape
    Does anyone know of any good tutorials on using xautomation? Im wanting to be able to automatically go to the next stumble page on my StumbleUpon account after every few seconds and then be able to stop it when it lands on something i want to read. I just discovered xautomation and am completely clueless on how to use it.:S

    Are you tired of going into a channel on IRC, asking your question, and not getting any responses? Wouldnt it be nice to not have to constantly read every line in a channel just to see how you can help someone else? Please check out my blog entry on this topic.

    RE: hdd partition for dual boot
    [quote]OK Jason, Your suggestion about the log files crashing the OS (particularly on limited size) aligns with my reading. I'll likely follow your counsel. I have not read the LVM piece yet but it sounds "logical" to me as well. Probably follow that one too. I'll look a little closer at the ext4 fs format...I have read only one article to base my opinion on. And another little jewel you provided was the existence of a gparted live CD. That really helps. Many thanks, b.line [/quote] b.line, No prob. Glad that i could help. Does that mean i get the little "applaud" for that[size=2][/size]? ;)[color=#A7A7A7][/color]

    RE: hdd partition for dual boot
    I would recommend that you do use a separate partition for /var. If you keep the var directory in the / partition and your apps generate a lot of log files this could potentially run your / partition out of space and crash the OS. By having a separate partition for /var helps keep your / partition from running out of space. I would agree with Zillion on the LVM approach, however I would add the /var as a separate Logical Volume (ext3 or 4) /boot = 200MB LVM VG = 35GB ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) / = 5GB ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) /var = 5GB ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) /home =20GB Remaining 5GB in VG can be used to extend any of the LV's later swap = twice size of memory up to 1 or 2GB As long as you have what you need for the XP partition, I do not see any reason why you could not run gparted (ie. gparted live cd) to shrink your XP partition size.

    (ext3 or 4) /boot = 200MB
    LVM VG = 35GB

    ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) / = 5GB
    ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) /var = 5GB
    ( LVM LV ext3 or 4) /home =20GB

    Remaining 5GB in VG can be used to extend any of the LV's later

    swap = twice size of memory up to 1 or 2GB

    As long as you have what you need for the XP partition, I do not see any reason why you could not run gparted (ie. gparted live cd) to shrink your XP partition size.
