Sharing a nifty trick
The thing I miss the most about Linux is wget. That little nifty app that works as a commandline download manager. Point an URL to it, and let it go. Network went down while getting Windows XP Service Pack2? Just do wget -c <the address>.
Yeah? Well this puppy extracts the least significant bit:
I have a full directory of ported Unix tools for Windows. wget is included and so is grep, ls, etc.
I suspect you're probably thinking of these:
I just install cygwin then include "C:\cygwin\bin" in my system path.
Does anyone know the origin of the phrase "Bob's your uncle."?
"Bob's your uncle - This term may come from the Irish politician Balfour who in 1887 was unexpectedly promoted to the vital front line post of Chief Secretary for Ireland by his uncle Robert, Lord Salisbury. This stroke of nepotism is said to have inspired the term. The phrase is used as if to say "and so it is done". e.g. "You just turn on the power, hit the switch and Bob's your uncle". If anyone knows of any alternate origins I would love to hear them."
Ogami, thanks for the trick. You're an amazing magician.
Oooooh, amazing little anonymous poster at it again. I'm soooo giddy..........
Ogami, anyone can use whaterver name, it won't make him non-anonymous.
I called him anonymous because he has no name, not because he has a fake name.
Ogami, do you have a fake name?
More than one.
I think it's "loser" and not "looser".
My uncle IS Bob.
I am Jack's Uncle Bob
Ogami, do you think spelling make a difference in your case?
