When you use pulseaudio and you increase the volume, it will increase the front volume but also the PCM value leading to crackling sound when reaching value above 80%. Here is how to change this behaviour.

I use git and literally love it but I have one problem with it, I often forget how to do things meaning I always have to go look for it either on the internet or in the manual. Therefore I have decided to write this post to regroup all the commands I use/need when using git.

You normally use glxgears to check performance of your graphic card but you get the same as your monitor refresh rate (60Hz = 60fps). You simply need to override a variable to not run synchronized to the vertical refresh.

In my post about catalyst 11.9, I wrote a rant about the AMD catalyst driver which after 6 months were still not working with gnome-shell. Another month has passed and unfortunately gnome-shell is still not usable with the catalyst driver.

regexp or in other words regular expression is something you have to regularly use in your applications. I've decided to write this post as a placeholder for regexp I believe are common and useful such as regexp for email validation or some you might use to replace characters in a string. I might write some piece of java code but you can use these regular expression in many other languages.

Gnome 3.0 was released on the 6th of April 2011. At the time I write this post, Gnome 3.2 has been released, we are on the 29th of September. Guess what, they have just released catalyst 11.9. I have tried it and gnome-shell still doesn't work properly!! Are they testing their driver goddammit?!

Here is a small post with just code to do 3DES (Triple DES) and DES Encryption in Java. You can simply copy/paste it in a Class you call Encrypter and it's ready to use. The public constructor takes the key and the IV as arguments.

While I was reading the comments in my previous post about java 1.7, I realized that there is one thing that Java as which is great: VisualVM. If you don't know it, this is a must read post. You will discover it and see how to use it. I will talk about the Garbage Collector as well, only basic things to be able to understand Visual GC.
