Turn your Old GameBoy Enclosure into a Raspberry Pi Case -
Thinking of creative cases for your Raspberry Pi? If you have an old GameBoy (the big, white one) lying around your closet, take it apart then use the enclosure to make a Raspberry Pi case for it.
Increase Browser Performance By Moving Profiles to RAM -
If you have a lot of RAM move your browser profile in it using Profile Sync Daemon. It not only saves your disk from frequent disk writes (very useful when you have SSD) but also increases the response of web browsers. It supports most browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Opera) and even has support for Opera Next, Midori, Konqueror, and firefox-trunk.
However, RAM is cleared on Reboot. The good thing is that Profile Sync Daemon automatically syncs your profile to RAM.
To install Profile Sync Daemon, add the following commands in your Terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graysky/utils
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install profile-sync-daemon
then follow the instructions available in WebUpd8.
Profile Sync Daemon also works on Arch Linux, Chakra Linux, Debian, and Gentoo.
