Mount Disks in Ubuntu

I’m currently working on a server migration and doing backups at the same time, all this on a remote VPS, and I just realized I keep on forgetting how to mount disks in Ubuntu and Linux in general. This Ubuntu guide on Mount/USB was very helpful. Basically, these are the commands that come handy:

sudo mkdir /media/external
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/external

Or something close to that.

Creating a Plurk Bot Using PHP

I’ve always wanted to create a bot for automated postings to Plurk just to get my karma rising, but I never got to coding it. Besides, that isn’t exactly acceptable behavior as some would see it. But here’s a complete guide to creating your own plurk bot using PHP.

YoxView

YoxView is another jQuery image viewer plugin that doesn’t look like your typical lightbox. Though there are too many lightbox options available, YoxView is among the few that have a built–in slideshow feature, which may come in handy for some sites.

iPad & iPhone Fonts

The recently released iPad and the iPhone have been revolutionary devices that change the way we access the web. As a result, web designers should be aware about the typeface options in both devices so you can properly declare them in your stylesheets without unnecessarily digging into @font–face embedding.

SublimeVideo

SublimeVideo is a javascript library you can use to serve HTML5 video to capable browsers while still retaining compatibility with older browsers, gracefully degrading to using a flash–based player. In many ways, it is similar to html5media, another library we featured a few weeks ago.

jQuery Crash

Now here’s a jQuery plugin with an evil twist: jQuery Crash. With just Javascript through jQuery, this plugin will crash anyone using IE6, a not so subtle way of telling them to start using a better browser. Sick.
