Bits of Learning

Learning sometimes happens in big jumps, but mostly in little tiny steps. I share my baby steps of learning here, mostly on topics around programming, programming languages, software engineering, and computing in general. But occasionally, even on other disciplines of engineering or even science. I mostly learn through examples and doing. And this place is a logbook of my experiences in learning something. You may find several things interesting here: little cute snippets of (hopefully useful) code, a bit of backing theory, and a lot of gyan on how learning can be so much fun.

Changing screen resolution

For a linux machine, the screen resolution can be changed by setting it in the following file:

In the section named 'Screens' add a 'Display' subsection. Something like:
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Virtual 1280 800

It sets the screen resolution to 1280 x 800.
