Electro Collection #1 – An electro-flow of music

speaker

Here’s a collection of electro/electronica songs (as mp3) I like and that are free and libre. I’ll just call this collection “Electro Collection #1”!

I’ve picked these songs because they each contain a unique melody and they are easy to listen even for those who might think they don’t like electro music. Really, listen to the first three songs (though you should listen to them all) and see! I’m sure you’ll find one that you like!
They almost all have the same genres. Mostly, it is: Electro/Electronica, Dance, Experimental.

If I had to pick favorite ones among these, they would be (as unsorted list):
02 – Jolie Micro Girl
04 – Struttin
05 – dub is dumb
06 – Chips dreams
11 – The sun is coming
13 – Plume
14 – don’t be shad
17 – Pour toi

Find files very quickly using Locate with Linux

Tired of using the Find command? want something faster? Use locate!!! It’s easy to use.

locate myfile

Would give you all the files found since last indexing.

Locate uses a database containing file indexes. That’s why it is very fast to find files, that’s the good point of this system. The bad point is that the database is not updated everytime you create/move/delete a file. But it’s easy to force updating.
