Earth and Mankind

Random thoughts.

I wonder how people will react when theres a politician or philosopher create this statement

Racism will always exist as long as race exist regardless where you are in the world.

Nationalism will always exist as long as nations exists.

Racism and Nationalism are not much different in essence. Races fights to maintain superiority among other races or for their race survival. Nations/Countries fight to maintain superiority among other nations/countries or for the survival of the nation/country. Races/Nations/Countries also fights because their differing opinions.

Nations, countries, races should be destroyed altogether. Everyone should be prescribed to only one Way of Life.

We don't need Malaysia, Singapore, China, India, Arab, Israel, Palestine, United States, etc. We only need Earth.

We don't need Malay, Chinese, Indian, Arabs, Jews, Anglo-Saxon, or whatever race. We only need Mankind, Children of Adam.

Disagree on the statement nations and countries shouldn't exist, it means you are supporting nationalism.

Disagree on the statement races shouldn't exist, it means you are supporting racism.

Perhaps after some intelligent lifeform from other planets or worlds come to attack earth then will mankind start ignoring their differences. Does we really need another intelligent species that is on all ways different than us before mankind start realizing that they are one species?. Hope for such event to occur is way too farfetched, but perhaps, thats the only way.

There was once a time in the earth, where an Empire existed, and was growing with such value, but nationalism destroyed the empire by breaking it apart to several small, weak countries that fight each other. I wonder if mankind will able to recreate such Empire again, now that nationalism is a common trait in almost everyone on Earth.

Something to think about.

Adding simple popup to Plone frontpage

Here is a little guide for those who want to add a simple popup to the Plone frontpage for some purpose (eg: announcements, advertisements, etc).

Create a basic html file containing the content you want to appear in the popup. Upload it into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template) and for the sake of this example, name it popup.html

Afterward, create a Javascript file with your Pop-Up loader script. For example , this script:

function popup(mylink, windowname)
if (! window.focus)return true;
var href;
if (typeof(mylink) == 'string')
href=mylink.href;, windowname, 'width=220,height=400,scrollbars=no');
return false;

popup('popup.html', 'My Popup');

Also upload this file into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template too). For this example, name it as popup.js

Afterward, in $PLONE_SITE/portal_javascripts , add popup.js as a new script into portal_javascripts…

HOWTO: Mirroring Yum repositories using Yum-Utils

As promised before in one of my previous post, a Howto on how to mirror and manage yum repositories using some of the utilities in yum-utils.

The first step is, well, of course, is to get yum-utils from fedora repository
yum install yum-utils

Reposync is a utility for mirroring and synchronizing local copy of a yum/rpmmetadata repository.

This utility is very useful if you wanted to make a yum repository mirror. Before this, I used "wget -R -np -N" but this method is a little bit tedious and it doesnt work with repos that didn't use directory listing. Plus, it also download together additional site stuff that I don't need/want and it doesn't verify checksum of the downloaded packages.

Mirroring a repo using this utility is easy, just execute this command
reposync -r <repoid> -a <arch> -n
and the repo will be mirrored in a folder with the same name of the repoid in the directory you executed the command. Eg: you executed the command in /mnt/storage/mi…

Tee'ing Python subprocess.Popen output

A little hack for python coders out there who wanted to have a functionality similar to the unix's tee command for redirecting output to multiple places.

import sys
from subprocess import Popen,PIPE
p = Popen(['put','command','and','arguments','here'],stdout=PIPE)

while True:
o = p.stdout.readline()
if o == '' and p.poll() != None: break
# the 'o' variable stores a line from the command's stdout
# do anything u wish with the 'o' variable here
# this loop will break once theres a blank output
# from stdout and the subprocess have ended
