Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

"Download managers?

I know Firefox can resume a download.
"

In theory, it can. In practice, I've found more often than not that Firefox will just restart a partial download from the beginning when I try to resume.

Since I've come to expect that, I usually make a duplicate of the .part file before trying to resume in Firefox - so when it almost-invariably fails to resume the transfer, I can just copy the download URL and resume the transfer using wget with the -c option (which has almost always worked IME).
