Global Address List (GAL) to Contacts in Outlook 2010

My android cannot sync GAL but the contacts of Outlook 2010/2003 can. I found that easiest for me way to do that :

  1. Open Outlook 2010/2003
  2. Click “New” to open a new email
  3. Click “To” button or click “Address Book” icon
  4. Select in the drop down list “All users –”
  5. Click on the first entry and roll down with [Shift] to the last entry
  6. Right-click and select “Add to Contacts”
  7. Click “Cancel”

HandBrake in Ubuntu 13.10

so far there is no release for 13.10 so I use release HandBrake for 13.04. First to add repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases

and change in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/stebbins-handbrake-releases-saucy.list “saucy” to “raring” like that:

deb raring main
then standard installation:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

Alt+Shift keyboard layout in Ubuntu 13.10

For 64bit works only under Unity. So switch to Unity set Alt+Shift_L and return back to gnome Fallback or Cinnamon. For 32bit works as a charm.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:attente/modifier-only-input-switch
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot
