Solve Chrome's weird behavior for Google Documents page size [bug]

    I used to think Google Drive application is dumb and breaks the pages carelessly, because the PDF version of the documents (or the printed version of them) were never the same with the actual thing I saw on my chrome browser. 


      Today I noticed Google Docs *(1)  works just fine in Firefox and in Chrome for Windows, and it only acts weird on Chrome for Linux. (it has been like this since I have been using Google chrome so it is not matter of version)

     I noticed nobody had reported this bug, I reported the bug with a screenshot hopefully they will solve this issue.

 so if you want your Google documents to print correctly and show the actual page, use firefox**(2) .



ps1:
* Google Docs or Google Drive Documents. I really liked "Google Docs" name, they should never have changed it to "google drive"

ps2:
** Firefox is my most trusted browser, it is slower than chrome but I never saw it fail on me. I love you Firefox !

How to return time and date in Linux terminal ?

while I was scheduling a script on a server using SSH, I realized every server has its own time zone, that might be different with my time .

Easy way to get time and ate in Linux terminal just enter date :
like this :
root@server [~]# date
Wed Oct 10 19:36:54 CDT 2012
if you want universal time and date:
# date -u
Thu Oct 11 00:39:56 UTC 2012
to get only time  and not date :
# date +"%T"
19:45:23

There are more options like getting the number of the week in the year
# date +"%W"
41
%H for hour
%m for minute
# date +"%H %m"
19 10
# date +"%H:%m"
19:10


For the full list of options read the manual page
man date
