Continuing Google Chrome downloads that have been canceled because of a crashed browser, a Windows bluescreen, or some other reason is quite easy by using the tools available via Linux. The primary tool used to continue downloading files on a Linux computer is called wget and can be obtained for Windows using the information below. If a Chrome download has been cancelled for some reason you can continue downloading the file using wget as explained below. I am surprised there is not a extension that provides a resume feature yet however I imagine one will be coming along in the near future.
I ran into a silly error tonight during some configuration changes for PostgreSQL that took me awhile to figure out so I wanted to share so it might save others some time in the future. In an attempt to boot the slave server in a PostgreSQL SkyTools walmgr configuration I was unable to get it operational. The server would seem like it was stopping recovery mode however I was unable to login and the recovery process was still showing. Eventually I used the verbose switch to see if I could gain more information about why it was not booting up and the output is below.
walmgr.py conf/wal-slave.ini boot -v
