Not sure if this btrfs error was benign or not.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/17

Booting the VM gave this in the log:

# btrfs balance /

    Full balance without filters requested. This operation is very
    intense and takes potentially very long. It is recommended to
    use the balance filters to narrow down the scope of balance.
    Use 'btrfs balance start --full-balance' option to skip this
    warning. The operation will start in 10 seconds.
    Use Ctrl-C to stop it.

Booting from a rescue DVD, then checking with an unmounted /dev/sda2 nothing is wrong:

Both had the same version:

If I ever need recovery, then these links likely help:

Reset Linux Desktop To Default Settings With A Single Command – OSTechNix

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/16

To reset Ubuntu Unity or any other Linux desktop with GNOME/MATE DEs to its default settings, run:

dconf reset -f /

Source: [WayBack] Reset Linux Desktop To Default Settings With A Single Command – OSTechNix

I need to check if it works on OpenSuSE with XFCE as there the dconf command is installed, but I still have a default desktop (mainly because most of the work I do is using a terminal over ssh).

Google old content posted before a specific date

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/15


  1. Start with something like¬†”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”
  2. Clicking Tools followed by Any Time, then Custom range often does not show a dialog.
  3. Appending &tbs=qdr:y to the URL magically enables that popup:”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”&tbs=qdr:y
  4. After filling it in, you get a very different URL like¬†”did+you+hear+about+the+man”+”he%27s+0K+now”&tbs=cdr:1,cd_min:,cd_max:01-01-2007

This is how I found the post in Did you hear about the man who got cooled to absolute zero? He’s 0K now.

I think cdr stands for custom date range and qdr for a built in date range as after searching for the abbreviations, I found [WayBack] Google Search URL Request Parameters | DETECTED that discusses tbm and tbo in addition to tbs.

The trick above is the successor of [WayBack] Filter Google Results by Date with a URL Trick which appended &as_qdr=d.
