First we need to create dhclient.conf if it doesn't exist or edit it:
#add this line at the top add the IPs as commas they will be the highest priority nameservers and whatever your ISP gives you will be used after these one (good for DNS backup)
prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1,10.10.25.8;
After you restart your network or run dhclient again you should see the contents of........
I modified the default to the following for faster local dialing for North American area codes:
This is what I added to the above: "[2-9]xxxxxxxxxS0" so any 9 digit number is dialed instantly xxx-xxx-xxxx (the S0 at the end makes it dial right away). This makes dialing much quicker and is recommended.
Here's what SMART tells me the serial number is:

What is so special about this? It's even quicker than creating a template with OpenVZ but this is an actual OS.

It may be hard to find by Googling by it's really quite simple and quicker than reading dozens of man page entries.

Plesk 8.6 CLI backup:
/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup domains domain.com
This is a much better way of doing it and of course it can be scripted, it's a real pain to point, click and wait for Plesk to backup domains (and yes Iknow you could do all of them in a single client file but this is not desirable for my situation).........
Just install the following package "nautilus-image-converter" and you will be able to right click any image and convert the size and rotate it.
My only wish is that you could also convert the image type from say tiff to jpg etc...
This is an awesome/handy/feature and great tool to have. This is one way where GNOME/Nautilus excel, the possibilities are endless to simplify and make simple/mundane tasks quicker and more efficient than ever.........
I finally decided to look into some utils that did this, and the first one I found is "mp3burn". It is unbelievable simple and perfect. *2017-11 update and mp3burn is still available in standard repos such as Ubuntu 14/16 so this is a current and working project.
Just install the package and it gets all required libraries to convert and then burn's on the fly. And you won't believe how simple it is.
I just want to a directory that had the MP3's I wanted t........

mysqldump --all-databases -u admin -p > allmysqldatabases.sql
The "-all-databases" clause is pretty obvious isn't it? It means that it will backup all databases.
The "-u admin" means login using the user "admin", if you h........
