Facebook Chat Through Instant Messenger App

Facebook chat can now work under Linux again through your favorite IM application that supports the open xmmp protocol. One of my favorites is Psi. Empathy, Pidgin, and Kopete should work fine as well. Instructions are here.

A Headache for some Linux Users

Have you ever been playing a Game in Linux, kicking some noob butt and, the screensaver comes on while you are playing a game? Or have you watched watched a movie you downloaded and the screensaver comes on? I am not sure if a bug fix has been released, but for those experiencing the problem, there is a nice way of working around that problem with an application called Caffeine. It prevents the screensaver and standby while it's running with a coffee icon in your panel.
