comment In Linux count number of key presses except those in the browser
Under X11, one could use RECORD and filter out the events that occur in windows with the XID of any of the windows with WM_CLASS such as chromium-browser that denotes that it is a browser.

If you still have this problem, could you include the make and model of the mouse in question?

comment Is there a way to prevent emerge --sync from deleting files from the portage tree?
No, I just want rsync to not delete the files that rsync put in the tree the last time it was ran. Which I know I can do by removing the --delete option. But that results in a tree which emerge fails to work on due it finding some cached hashes missing.

@Flow I know they remove the files because they no longer want to maintain them. I can continue to be able to build the packages that I already installed at least until those packages are suitably replaced by newer versions where in suitably is of personal definition.

I'm not adding anything to the upstream in the portage tree. I would use an overlay for that. But what I want is that when I sync the tree I want to keep all the ebuilds that are already in it which were previously fetched in a prior sync in that tree while adding any new ones.

comment Are there additional ways to protect SSH connections besides firewall and RSA Keys?
Don't MAC addresses only appear in Ethernet frames (or 8.11x frames) and not in IP packets? And so MAC filtering is useless as no packet from the Internet has a MAC address field.

comment Life with empty about:plugins (so without flash)
Well, life without flash is easy if you don't visit or want to view any of the video hosting sites. Then again, I don't like watching video in a web browser.
