Total upload and download on any interface.

Something that I have been searching for a long time, finally some look inside the /proc got me what I wanted. Hope this will save someone’s day. So far, the only option I could think of was to run conky which becomes a little heave on some of the very old laptops I have to use sometimes 🙁

CR Post to Ping.fm not working – resolved.

Last couple of months I was having a tough time getting the plugins in my wordpress to work with the ping.fm service.  This is the only service that I rely on to post my blogs. So, basically I was left with no mechanism to publish my new posts 🙁

Now thanks to this post I am able to use the plugin again and thus update my status at multiple places again.
