Time Wasters – Part1

We all know how easy it is to lose track of time while surfing the awesome internet.
During the last months, I’ve been bookmarking some of the most useless sites that I came across. (Without a reason at that time)
Now I have this folder full of time-wasting websites sitting in my toolbar and wondered whether to delete it or keep it…
So I came up with the brilliant idea of putting the list up here for later referral whilst sharing it with you ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s double karma!
Here we go.

Uncomfotable Moments With Putin

Although I think there could be wound up a lot more of pictures, it’s already an awesome concept.



What’s Osama Bin Watchin’?

On this page you can enter any youtube video and make Osama Bin Laden watch it.
You can make the old man watch Justin Bieber for over a few hours if you’d like ๐Ÿ™‚



Kim Jong-Il looking at things

Wrong time in Windows on Dual Boot system.

When you have a dual boot with Windows and Ubuntu you might experience some time travelling when rebooting to windows.
To solve this, simply boot into Ubuntu and edit the /etc/default/rcS file as sudo and change the UTC value from yes to no.
It should look like this

UTC=no #Set according to your system (BIOS) clock.

These values are being used by the scripts at /etc/rcS.d/ that get invoked during boot (even in single user mode)

To be clear, this is not an Ubuntu error. It is simply the Windows that never assumes the system-clock to be in UTC.

If you wish to adjust this in the Windows installation execute regedit and navigate to:


Change the RealTimeIsUniversal value to 1.

If you’re simply looking for a wach to change your hardwareclock on linux you can check my other article onย Changing date and/or time on Linux.

Changing date and/or time on Linux

Here’s a short and easy way to set your system and hardware clock from the command line.
Open your terminal and follow these steps.

First check the current time of your hardwareclock:

hwclock -r

Then add the right date/time to your systemclock.
In the example provided you’ll find some strange long number.
You have to read it like this (from left to right):
[01] = month (Jan) | [14] = day | [0231] = time (02:31) | [2011] = year

sudo date 011402312011

Now sync your hardware clock with the date/time you’ve just set:

sudo hwclock --systohc

Check if the hardware clock is synced right:

sudo hwclock -r
