My programming and board game hobbies have intersected in the DAIDE project; unfortunately, my work with PowerSpeak takes most of my computer time.

comment How can I remove “Show Desktop” from the Alt-Tab (application) switcher?
unity-tweak-tool works in 13.10, too.

comment Removing files with a certain extension except one file from terminal
Instead of the subshell, it's probably better to use xargs: ls *.gif | grep -v filename | xargs -d\\n rm; that sequence handles spaces in filenames, but not newlines (which probably shouldn't be allowed anyway, but that's another argument).

comment How can I force Ubuntu to use the BIOS internal clock instead of NTP or whatever its being used?
Thank you; adjtimex seems to be working beautifully. I'm down to a few seconds per day, and am getting closer to ideal.

I've been having the same issue since I upgraded to Maverick. My software clock has been losing about ten minutes a day, both with and without ntpd running, but the hardware clock is fine. Manual adjustments with ntpdate work, but don't resolve the underlying problem.
