How to synchronize your iOS notes to your Mac or iCloud?
apple-ios dept. ( 4278) () by Luis
Once upon a time you could simple plug in your Apple iOS device to your computer and it will magically sync everything up for you. Then later Apple changed things so that the only way you could do this is to "plug" to the cloud. However, what happens if you missed the boat and you still have a lot of Notes in your "On my phone" folder for your Notes.app? Well, this is a bit of a hack to get this sync done:
Get a copy of the Mac application
iExplorer or use Ubuntu Linux Plug in your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc..) to your Mac or PC
Open iExporer (click
Continue with Demo) and surf to iTunes Backups or Backups > Notes Click on
Export all notes, which will ask you to pay a license for iExplorer, or if you're on a budget you may Copy/Paste on your Mac to your Notes app If your're using Ubuntu you will be able to Browse the filesystem of the iOS and the Notes directly

Running remote applications from Linux on a Windows system using FreeRDP
windows-the-ever-present-necessity dept. ( 12369) () by Luis
As stated previously on
my FreeRDP article, the
xfreerdp command line utility is very useful as it allows you to run a full Windows desktop from your Linux system.
Sometimes you just want to run a single, i.e. arbitrary, application from your Windows server or desktop, inside Linux. For this you can use the
RemoteApp, or rail, plugin
Here is an example on how to run a terminal,
cmd.exe, from your Windows desktop using
xfreerdp on Linux:
xfreerdp -u Administrator -p Password --app --plugin rail --data "%windir%\system32\cmd.exe" -- mywindows.local
mywindows.local is the hostname or IP for your Windows desktop. Note that you may use variables substitutions as defined in your user's environment under Windows. Very neat!
Be sure to checkout the documentation on
Github for example usage and changes.

Compiling and deploying binary Ruby gems
ruby dept. ( 4533) () by Luis
If, like me, you need to deploy a set of Ruby gems to a number of servers that do not have a way to compile on its own, you will need to figure out a way to include native extensions into the gem itself. The question is, how does one properly do this? The process is a very simple if you already know how Gem works. For the rest of us, here is a simple guide to follow step by step.

Gnome Shell Dynamic Workspaces
tip-for-the-impatient dept. ( 5209) () by Luis
Say you want to turn off dynamic workspaces in Gnome 3
gnome-shell, all you need to do is:
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides dynamic-workspaces false
Type that in a terminal and you're set! The default is 4 static workspaces.
