TGCombine

Well I've been redesigning a new website for the family pictures and I decided to go with Turbogears, after added a few javascript files I thought about combining and compressing then, you know to be a good Inet citizen and lower my bandwidth. So I took a quick peek at combine.php
to see what exactly was going on and in a few minutes I had a quick mashup combining my scripts. Then I figured jsmin.py would make a good JS compressor since it is pretty safe for on the fly compression. I've used for a while as a commandline app with little problems. The only thing left was css, I hacked that together with some regex. Then after figuring out the caching issues I had a nice little combine.py so I figured I'd try and create my first TG widget and thanks to python dist utils that was a breeze so anyone looking to combine scripts on TG you can now grab TGCombine off the Cogbin

Have Fun :~}

Ubuntu Service Command

We'll RedHat users looking to take the Ubuntu plunge may miss the good ol' service command, I know I liked it and I recently found a Debian shell script written by "Written by John Hasler, 2004" that did the same thing so I threw in some sudo's and off you go start/start/restart ing.

Rename it from .txt put in your you bin directory and you good to go.
