Who doesn’t know this:
“If I only had an old version of my bookmarks, my curriculum or another important office document”
This is the point to think about version control like developers use for Code.
One version control tool usable for this is git.
Git was developed by Linus Torvalds and others for the Linux Kernel but it also exist a windows version.
Lets make our first repository

cd mydir
git init
git add .
git commit

How track down Changes ?
git status
git diff

Commit History
git log
Howto revert the last commit

Numlock Madness with my ubuntu netbook

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netbook

Last weekend my netbook had a very strange behaviour. When pressed “O” a “6 “appeared instead .; instead of a “.” a “,” appeared and so one.
It was the behaviour of a constantly pressed FN Key.
After an hour of debugging I found the solution. I used an external keyboard some days before ( with NUM Lock ) and my system saved this setting. releasing NUM Lock and the strange behaviour was gone.
