Improving a workflow for importing BibTeX citations

Source: http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/79251/improving-a-workflow-for-importing-bibtex-citations

You can set up Jabref to automatically import a reference from Firefox into the current database, but it’s somewhat arcane. Here is my solution under Linux:

  • 1) Select Options -> Preferences -> Advanced — and check „Listen for remote operation …“ I don’t think it matters which port.
  • 2) Create a small bash script (text file) named „jabref-import“ that looks like this:

Replace „~/local/jabref/JabRef-2.8.1.jar“ with the path to your Jabref .jar file on your machine. Or if you have a working executable called „jabref“, you can replace everything before the „-i“ with „jabref“. Just make sure your executable accepts command-line options (mine didn’t).

In Ubuntu 13.04, the following variant of the script works:

where which jabref searches for an executable called jabref on your current $PATH.

3) Make the file executable:

4) Make sure Jabref is already open. Go to Firefox, download a citation file. It could be a .bib or .ris or .ref or whatever. Select the „Open with…“ option in the dialog, and select the jabref-import executable that you just made. The import dialog should pop up in Jabref with your citation.

Back up and migrate a Thunderbird profile and folders

The ability to migrate Mozilla Thunderbird profiles makes the email client an even more flexible tool for power email users.

Backing up a profile

You don’t need anything special to back up Thunderbird profiles; the most important thing is for you to know the location of your profile folder. The profile folder will be named a random string of characters and will be housed in a different location depending upon the platform.

  • Linux: ~/.thunderbird/
  • Windows 7: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\
  • Mac: /Users/username/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles

Importing a new profile

You might think you could just dump the contents of the new profile into the correct folder, but that method doesn’t work. You must use the Thunderbird Profile Manager to import the profiles. This way you get the mail account set up, and you also get all of the folders and email associated with those accounts.

To fire up the Thunderbird Profile Manager, you have to run Thunderbird from the command line. This will depend upon your platform, but the gist of the command is thunderbird -profilemanager. If you’re using Windows, you’ll run thunderbird.exe -profilemanager.

When the Profile Manager window opens, click the Create Profile button.

Festplatte sicher mit Guttmann Methode (DBAN) formatieren

Die Gutmann-Methode, benannt nach ihrem Erfinder Peter Gutmann, der diese erstmals im Jahr 1996 veröffentlichte, ist eine Methode zur vollständigen Löschung von Daten auf Festplatten.

Die Daten werden insgesamt bis zu 35-mal mit bestimmten Werten nach einem speziellen Muster überschrieben. Diese Methode ist sehr zeitaufwändig, gilt aber für Festplatten, die noch kein PRML oder EPRML verwenden, als die sicherste Methode der softwaregesteuerten rückstandslosen Datenlöschung. Dies sind in der Regel Festplatten bis spätestens zum Herstellungsdatum 2001 bzw. bis höchstens 15 GB Kapazität.

Neuere Festplatten werden durch die im Verfahren enthaltenen acht Durchgänge mit Zufallsdaten ebenfalls einigermaßen zuverlässig überschrieben, die anderen 27 Durchgänge sind hier allerdings wenig sinnvoll und sollten in diesen Fällen besser durch weitere Zufallsdatenschreibdurchgänge ersetzt werden
