Get Nautilus Text Based Address Bar Back  

One of the first things I noticed when I started Ubuntu 10.04 was the missing option to toggle between the button-mode and the text-based address bar in Nautilus, with a simple mouse click. 

First of all there is a key-shortcut to toggle between both modes; Simply press CTRL + L.

To make the change more perminent, open the Configuration Editor and then navigate to “/apps/nautilus/preferences/” and either enable or disable the checkbox of the key that is called “always_use_location_entry". 

That sould do it....

    (set! layer (car (gimp-image-merge-visible-layers image CLIP-TO-IMAGE)))
    (set! filename (string-append (substring (car file's) 0 (- (string-length (car file's)) 4)) ".png"))
    (gimp-file-save RUN-NONINTERACTIVE image layer filename filename)
    (gimp-image-delete image)
    (set! file's (cdr file's))
  (gimp-quit 0)
Hide Your IP Address  

We won't speculate on the reason you may want to hide your IP address, but it's something every geek needs to do at one point or another. There are a few methods to do this, but by far the best and easiest method is using the wonderful onion-routing system that is Tor.
