    Is there any hidden advantage to prefer "-p" over "-e"?

    What an interesting box you have there... ;-)
  9. Re: HOWTO: Set maximum CPU consumption in percentage by any process

    Whitelisting cpulimit should be good, but IMHO setting everything to be limited at 3% is kind of low, don't you start to notice everything going slower?
    I tend to think the other way round, and i...

    Thanks for the details on that, but still no joy, got a few cpu "surges" this morning...

    Is the security improvement that small that we can afford to disable those checks?

    Re: Firefox 7 & Beyond Mega Thread

    I am still thinking it's random, only clue I may have is:

    On Ubuntu, it's firefox who eats up the cpu, no signs of plugin-container climbing in htop. Still some responsiveness in FF though.

    Re: Firefox 7 & Beyond Mega Thread

    Anyone else noticing FF7 (7.0.1 to be exact) sometimes eating up a whole core to a 100% for a while, before dropping again?

    It's still somewhat responsive, but kind of annoying.

    Thanks

    I'll look into sync, this won't happen to me twice...

    You can add the line at the end of the file too:

    With username replaced accordingly of course... If you want to add more commands, use [,]'s between them.

    Two things to keep in mind:
    - Is your interface wlan0?
    - What is the output when you just run the command:
