What prevents you from working in the open?I work for an open source company on an open source project and still I encounter on a daily basis that people who are working on open source software prefer to work in private (from time to time).

My AMD Catalyst (aka fglrx) trouble in Fedora is well-documented. Biggest of the big at this point is that the proprietary AMD driver DOES NOT work with GNOME 3. So I did a test install of Debian Jessie last week, and the same thing happened: GNOME 3 runs fine with the open-source Radeon driver, not at all with the closed-source fglrx.

I have a data-entry script which adds records to a plain-text data table. It's a fairly complicated script with a GUI dialog, and until recently it added one record at a time. To add another record, I had to launch the script again. Was there a simple way (I asked myself) to re-run the script, or exit it, from within the script?After a lot of rummaging on the Web, I found a suitable method in William Shotts' excellent book The Linux Command Line.
