For Debian Jessie, the version of apt-offline available is: 1.5.1. This version has had some issues.

My very 1st backports is available in the form of apt-offline 1.7 for Debian Jessie Backports. For Debian Jessie users, this should fix most of the issues.

Having moved to a new place, now at times, I also have to deal with power outages. As heat increases, the power outages will be much longer and more frequent. So much, that UPS and Power Inverters run out. Such are ideal times to measure idle power consumption for my laptop.

I very recently met someone, and we had a good productive discussion on the features and (long standing) bugs of the Linux kernel. No doubt, Linux is the most featureful kernel in the market. Is also a lot appealing given its breadth of platform support.

Unbricking my Linksys

Compulsory:

In trying to improve the WiFi service in my house, I recently dug out my old Linksys WRT54G Router. It is a 802.11 bg router, which can do 54 MBPS.  Currently, I use a TPLink based router, with a DD-WRT community firmware, which claims is 802.11 bgn and can do 300 MBPS.  The overall wifi signal isn't adequate, so I thought of using the old router as a repeater.
