In order to solve this issue these series of SPSS syntax tutorials show, and explain how SPSS syntax can be used.

This tutorial is about how to define multiline comments, numeric and string variables in SPSS syntax code.

OSX HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP duplex printing

December 17th, 2009

When I started to use my HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP it turned out that manual duplex printing was not exactly working. Page 1 had page 7 on the back etc. The problem was that the printer prints its pages in opposite direction, starting with the last page. I spend lots of time seaching for a solution. I found this website, which descibes how to change your printer driver in order to print from 1 to n. Here are the steps you need to do…

Readout sensors of an EEE Box running Ubuntu server

August 11th, 2009

Quintin, a friend of mine, showed me a way to readout the sensors of my EEE Box in Ubuntu server.

The first step is to install the lm-sensors package

$ sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

Then you need to load the w83627ehf kernel module using

$ sudo modprobe w83627ehf

In order to have your sensors detected launch the command below and follow the steps shown (basically you can just press [enter] to each question).

$ sudo sensors-detect

Now you can readout your sensors by using the command

$ sensors

Remember if you want to load the w83627ehf module every time the sysem reboots, you need to update your /etc/rc.local with the line:

modprobe w83627ehf
