How to extract links from XML file using Linux grep

regular expression

Reading Time: 4 minutesRecently I had offered a colleague of mine to provide her with all links to blogs I follow so she could read them, too. It was easier said than done. Needles to say, wordpress.com is very friendly in this case and provides you with an option to export all blogs you follow.

Today we fight back against mass surveilance

Reading Time: 1 minuteToday (February 11,2014) is an international day to show your protest against surveillance on internet by intelligence agencies like NSA and their acts to monitor and control our internet privacy.  As an open source enthusiast and as a professional involved in the IT area, I strongly believe, that technology should be used as an extension of human mind and free will, to help it reach further, not to restrict it.

Ten good reasons to use Linux OS

Reading Time: 6 minutesIt was 2 years ago… It was 2 years ago when I first started a Linux OS on my PC and from that moment I started to evolve as a Linux die-hard fan with every single moment. As I recall it was some version of wubi, which is a Linux installer for Windows that lets you install Linux over your Windows file system, so you don’t have to install it as a dual boot.

Quality means bugs

Scared bug

Reading Time: 4 minutesNo, not that little fellow, I mean software bugs 🙂 Introduction I’ve had a lot of conversations with co-workers on whether a bug should be logged or not, and I really enjoyed some very creative excuses on skipping the defect tracking part of the debugging process. I don’t know if it’s ego, or simply attempting to make the work less formal or fear but in my honest opinion it’s a huge mistake and it could pretty soon stab you in […]

Lubuntu 13.10 reduce brightness issue

Reading Time: 2 minutesSince the last version of Ubuntu – 13.10 – “saucy salamander”, I’ve been experiencing several issues, apps stopped working, crashes etc. This is kind of normal stuff, with each new release of an open source distribution, there’s a period in which you have to be patient to have the communities release some patches of what got broken.

Improve your lame security part 1: Browsers

Reading Time: 2 minutesI’ve had enough, I’m tired of reading people’s nonsense about how they got “hacked” so they had to switch their Facebook account or Skype or whatever.
