Watchout how Capital One Destroys ING Direct


As you may know Capital One purchased ING Direct in early 2012. Capital One said that ING Direct will not change. Think again!

Capital one was always one of my less favorite banks due to their shameless high interest rates on credit cards and especially taking advantage on individuals with not excellent credit scores.

Around September 2012 you could see website changes from the regular orange to Capital One 360 brand.y.. Did not have to wait a lot… In October 10th I noticed the APY changed to 0.75% good bye highest online savings.. Just picked up my savings and transferred all to American Express for 0.90% not much difference I just can not stand the greedy Capital One trying to hide behind old ING reputation and start rip off its clients.

I also noticed that my Ingdirect mortgage  rate renew is no longer showing up. I still have 3 years as fixed rate. I was just thinking of renewing my fixed rate for another 5 years and pay 1 month worth of mortgage fee but now…. I have no choice…


It is very unfortunate to see  how Capital One will destroy a good brand like Ingdirect but we can not do anything about it.



Please know that ING DIRECT removed the Rate Renewal tab from the website. The Rate Renewal option is still available for customers that are eligible. To find out if your eligible to do this option online, please call one of our Associates at 1-888-464-0727 for all specific account questions. We’re available from 8 AM to 8 PM, 7 days a week.

Keep in mind, our interest rates, eligibility requirements and the cost of a Rate Renew may change at any time. We may not always offer Rate Renewals.

UPDATE: Nov 20, 2012. Called ING and they put the renewal back not sure what else changed and not sure if there are other hidden items why they asked me to call back when this Renewal option was always there on my account in prior years.


UPDATE Sep 15, 2014

Rate renew is still and option but in the spirit of Capital One 360 and not the old ING direct (that is rip off your customers) If I try to renew they offer me 5/1 arm at %3.75 if I go as a new client they offer it at %3.375 it is very unfortunate that the ING Direct brand is amortized but again it is Capital One now… 

If you are thinking of taking a mortgage from Capital One 360 please think again as surprises most likely will continue and as a client you will pay for it.


Basic vi Commands


Basic vi Commands

What is vi?

The default editor that comes with the UNIX operating system is called vi (visual editor). [Alternate editors for UNIX environments include pico and emacs, a product of GNU.] 
The UNIX vi editor is a full screen editor and has two modes of operation:

  1. Command mode commands which cause action to be taken on the file, and
  2. Insert mode in which entered text is inserted into the file.

In the command mode, every character typed is a command that does something to the text file being edited; a character typed in the command mode may even cause the vi editor to enter the insert mode. In the insert mode, every character typed is added to the text in the file; pressing the <Esc> (Escape) key turns off the Insert mode.

While there are a number of vi commands, just a handful of these is usually sufficient for beginning vi users. To assist such users, this Web page contains a sampling of basic vi commands. The most basic and useful commands are marked with an asterisk (* or star) in the tables below. With practice, these commands should become automatic. 
NOTE: Both UNIX and vi are case-sensitive. Be sure not to use a capital letter in place of a lowercase letter; the results will not be what you expect.



To Get Into and Out Of vi


To Start vi


To use vi on a file, type in vi filename. If the file named filename exists, then the first page (or screen) of the file will be displayed; if the file does not exist, then an empty file and screen are created into which you may enter text.



* vi filename edit filename starting at line 1
vi -r filename recover filename that was being edited when system crashed


To Exit vi


Usually the new or modified file is saved when you leave vi. However, it is also possible to quit vi without saving the file. 
Note: The cursor moves to bottom of screen whenever a colon (:) is typed. This type of command is completed by hitting the <Return> (or <Enter>) key.



* : x<Return> quit vi, writing out modified file to file named in original invocation
:wq<Return> quit vi, writing out modified file to file named in original invocation
:q<Return> quit (or exit) vi
* :q!<Return> quit vi even though latest changes have not been saved for this vi call



Moving the Cursor


Unlike many of the PC and MacIntosh editors, the mouse does not move the cursor within the vi editor screen (or window). You must use the the key commands listed below. On some UNIX platforms, the arrow keys may be used as well; however, since vi was designed with the Qwerty keyboard (containing no arrow keys) in mind, the arrow keys sometimes produce strange effects in vi and should be avoided. 
If you go back and forth between a PC environment and a UNIX environment, you may find that this dissimilarity in methods for cursor movement is the most frustrating difference between the two. 
In the table below, the symbol ^ before a letter means that the <Ctrl> key should be held down while the letter key is pressed.



* j or <Return>
[or down-arrow]
move cursor down one line
* k [or up-arrow] move cursor up one line
* h or <Backspace>
[or left-arrow]
move cursor left one character
* l or <Space>
[or right-arrow]
move cursor right one character
* 0 (zero) move cursor to start of current line (the one with the cursor)
* $ move cursor to end of current line
w move cursor to beginning of next word
b move cursor back to beginning of preceding word
:0<Return> or 1G move cursor to first line in file
:n<Return> or nG move cursor to line n
:$<Return> or G move cursor to last line in file



Screen Manipulation


The following commands allow the vi editor screen (or window) to move up or down several lines and to be refreshed.



^f move forward one screen
^b move backward one screen
^d move down (forward) one half screen
^u move up (back) one half screen
^l redraws the screen
^r redraws the screen, removing deleted lines



Adding, Changing, and Deleting Text


Unlike PC editors, you cannot replace or delete text by highlighting it with the mouse. Instead use the commands in the following tables. 
Perhaps the most important command is the one that allows you to back up and undo your last action. Unfortunately, this command acts like a toggle, undoing and redoing your most recent action. You cannot go back more than one step.



* u UNDO WHATEVER YOU JUST DID; a simple toggle


The main purpose of an editor is to create, add, or modify text for a file. 

Inserting or Adding Text


The following commands allow you to insert and add text. Each of these commands puts the vi editor into insert mode; thus, the <Esc> key must be pressed to terminate the entry of text and to put the vi editor back into command mode. 


* i insert text before cursor, until <Esc> hit
I insert text at beginning of current line, until <Esc> hit
* a append text after cursor, until <Esc> hit
A append text to end of current line, until <Esc> hit
* o open and put text in a new line below current line, until <Esc> hit
* O open and put text in a new line above current line, until <Esc> hit


Changing Text


The following commands allow you to modify text. 


* r replace single character under cursor (no <Esc> needed)
R replace characters, starting with current cursor position, until <Esc> hit
cw change the current word with new text,
starting with the character under cursor, until <Esc> hit
cNw change N words beginning with character under cursor, until <Esc> hit;
e.g., c5w changes 5 words
C change (replace) the characters in the current line, until <Esc> hit
cc change (replace) the entire current line, stopping when <Esc> is hit
Ncc or cNc change (replace) the next N lines, starting with the current line,
stopping when <Esc> is hit


Deleting Text


The following commands allow you to delete text. 


* x delete single character under cursor
Nx delete N characters, starting with character under cursor
dw delete the single word beginning with character under cursor
dNw delete N words beginning with character under cursor;
e.g., d5w deletes 5 words
D delete the remainder of the line, starting with current cursor position
* dd delete entire current line
Ndd or dNd delete N lines, beginning with the current line;
e.g., 5dd deletes 5 lines


Cutting and Pasting Text


The following commands allow you to copy and paste text. 


yy copy (yank, cut) the current line into the buffer
Nyy or yNy copy (yank, cut) the next N lines, including the current line, into the buffer
p put (paste) the line(s) in the buffer into the text after the current line



Other Commands


Searching Text


A common occurrence in text editing is to replace one word or phase by another. To locate instances of particular sets of characters (or strings), use the following commands. 


/string search forward for occurrence of string in text
?string search backward for occurrence of string in text
n move to next occurrence of search string
N move to next occurrence of search string in opposite direction


Determining Line Numbers


Being able to determine the line number of the current line or the total number of lines in the file being edited is sometimes useful. 


:.= returns line number of current line at bottom of screen
:= returns the total number of lines at bottom of screen
^g provides the current line number, along with the total number of lines,
in the file at the bottom of the screen



Saving and Reading Files

These commands permit you to input and output files other than the named file with which you are currently working.



:r filename<Return> read file named filename and insert after current line
(the line with cursor)
:w<Return> write current contents to file named in original vi call
:w newfile<Return> write current contents to a new file named newfile
:12,35w smallfile<Return> write the contents of the lines numbered 12 through 35 to a new file named smallfile
:w! prevfile<Return> write current contents over a pre-existing file named prevfile

Exclude a directory to tar


Here is an example how to backup your site, and a exclude a directory :

tar -cf backup.tar —exclude={/home/yoursite/public_html/wp-content/uploads/*} /home/yoursite/public_html/


backup.tar : Backup file name.

To exclude more than one directory  :  — exclude={”/proc/*”,”/sys*”,”/tmp/*”,”/home/user/*”}

Extend Partition C with Vista Windows


I am writing this article due my long frustration with the difficulty of extending the C partition on my Windows Vista Operating System.

When I first got my new laptop I thought that 50GB will be enough for program files on the C partition and created a G partition for storage.

Few months later the 50GB were not enough and needed to extend it. But when I tried to do that the Extend option was GRAYED OUT.

Extending partitions can be done by >START MENU > Over “MY COMPUTER” Right click> Manage

The reason why I could not extend it is because the new Part. G was on the right of C so if you want to extend your C drive you need to:

1-Backup  all your “storage” partion on an external drive. Or create a new partition if you have enough space example partition F and move the content.

2-Delete your old storage partition G

3-Then you will see the extend option not grayed out anymore… So you can extend C again.
