November really feels like Christmas time. When it is
December and Christmas then there are sooooo many
people in the shops running around to buy presents and
Christmas advertisements are everywhere. It's not
funny and it's almost too much.
Therefore this is now the LinuxFocus Christmas edition
with LinuxFocus crispy chocolate coco cookies:
You will enjoy them most
while working on the the latest Linux software or while
- 2 x 100g bar of milk chocolate
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup cornflakes
Carefully melt the chocolate in a saucepan.
Add the shredded coconut into the melted chocolate and
mix it with a spoon. Next, add the cornflakes and stir
it until all the cornflakes are covered with brown
chocolate and coconut. Take 2 teaspoons of the mix and
roll it into a ball. Place separately on a cold plate
and let these crispy chocolate coco cookies cool in
the fridge for 15 minutes.
The LinuxFocus Tip
How to design a homepage that many people can read?
When you design your homepage you probably want other people to be
able to look at it. HTML is a standard but how a browser reacts to
faulty html is not standardized. This is why poorly designed pages
will have a pleasant look in one browser but look distorted and
ugly in another one. The best solution to this is to not only look
at your page with one browser but run it as well through a html
verification tool such as tidy (click to get to the
just run: tidy -e index.html
where index.html is your homepage and you will get a list
of errors if there are any. Tidy can as well fix automatically some
errors or indent the html code nicely. It's all described in the
man-page that comes with tidy.
The W3C provides as well an online link checking and html
validation service at:
In this case you don't need to install anything. Just run your
homepage through this validator. It's a rather strict validator, maybe
sometimes too strict but it gives a good indication.
Broken links are annoying and there are tools to check links.
You find one on the above validator page and you can download different
link check software
A very fast checker is blnkcheck. It can check several thousand links
per second but it checks only relative links. blnkcheck is part of
a package called webgrep
(click to get to the webgrep-homepage).
