Hopefully these online test results are credible enough to say something about me....

One small question: are online tests credible enough to show whether somebody is competent or not in his/her field?

Google sense "something" about this online store :)

 Does Google smell something "fishy" with this online notebook store? Could you tell? :D

Contributing to laptop mode tools

As confirmed by laptop mode tools' changelog, my patch is finally merged into their core code. I simply contribute few line to show statistics regarding write and read frequency of every programs recorded during lm-profiler's runtime.

So, how the code looks like?

—- lm-profiler.old2009-06-03 21:12:52.000000000 +0700

+++ lm-profiler2009-06-26 21:08:54.000000000 +0700

@ -209,6 +209,11 @

printf ’\r \r’


+echo “Write frequency : ”; cat $WORKDIR/write_accesses_* | sed -e ’s/[ \t]*//;s/[ \t]*$//’ -e ’/$/ d’ | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

+echo “Read frequency : ”; cat $WORKDIR/read_accesses_* | sed -e ’s/[ \t]*//;s/[ \t]*$//’ -e ’/$/ d’ | sort | uniq -c | sort -n


echo “Profiling run completed.”

Looks awful? I admit it. In short, it grabs files created by lm-profiler during its run time, trims out the blanks and then sort them, while at the same time showing their frequencies ascendingly.

NB: Actually it's for my own reminder, but to share with you all. To easily convert text to HTML (and dealing with all those escape characters etc), you could use Simply paste your text there and click the button, get the HTML-ized text!
