- @reboot <command>
- At a command prompt, type crontab -e. You may be asked to choose your default editor; nano is probably the easiest to use. Scroll to the bottom of the file and add the line. Save the file and you are all set.

Actually, most of the open source websites are not blocked here in China, we can access debian, ubuntu, mint, redhat, fedora, centos, opensuse, etc. And most of the famous universities and websites have set up open source mirrors, everything is good here:)
The china great firewall is mainly to block contents of Adults, politics, anti-china press, etc.
Just found your podcast and enjoying it. Was a little disappointed that on your Music in the Clouds episode you didn’t mention Jamendo (or Magnatunes). Jamendo streams all kinds of music, and the best part is it is all in the creative commons, so if you find an artist you like, you can download the tracks or whole album if you like for free.
I can’t believe we left Jamendo out. That’s my fault. The podcast music we use for leadins, transitions, and exits came from Jamendo! Good on you for catching this, and bad on me for forgetting Jamendo.
When Cinnamon first came out I think I said something along the lines of “the linux community need another desktop like I need a hole in the head” and later hedged my bet with, “I may later have to eat my own words.” Well… salt, pepper… >nom, nom, nom<
Still sticking with Xfce, but obviously, people like it.
A few months back Linux Format (a magazine in the UK) got an interview with Linus Torvalds. If any of us missed it, they posted the full article here, free of charge…
Hi again guys you didn’t answer my first questions, is this not the way to ask?
Since James is gone for now could I co-host with you guys, Its my life long dream! Please contact me if possible.
And why do you guys have an exact time limit for the podcast! you should go as long as needed.
You guys are doing a great job. I would like to see a younger host added to get a young idealistic point of view about things. I wonder if it would be appropriate to add the kid from Bodhi Linux, but this is a MintCast after all.
Thanks for all you do,
First of all I want to tell you guys I really enjoy you podcast and thanks for taking the time to do this.
I have a question For Scott; did you have to enable TRIM on your mstat drive?
Thanks and keep up the good work.
Great question. I have the drive set to AHCI in the bios, so Windows 7 provides TRIM for me. I used the Intel SSD Toolbox app to verify this.
However, on the Mint 14 side, I have yet to add the “discard” flag to my FSTab file (the drive is EXT4). Thanks for reminding me to do this.
It’d be useful to have time markers in the show notes, so people can jump to specific sections of the podcast.
I’ve played with Ubuntu and other flavours of Linux in the past, but I’m new to Mint as of now (v14), so I was hoping for more objective analysis of performance requirements of MATE vs. Cinnamon. I’m running a 6-year-old laptop (2GHz Intel Duo) and have found Ubuntu a little heavy at times. I’m guessing MATE is my best bet.
Update: Cinnamon works just fine on my 6-year-old laptop. A few laggy bits (Software Manager) but these are probably not the fault of Cinnamon.
