The various options are

Frame Width : The width of the frame to added
Frame Fill: We can choose the fill the frame with
Color of our choise or, the same color as the background, the same color as the foreground or we can select any of the patterns available in gimp.
Texture Frame: We can add a texture from the various options of texture available. Texture Bump Map and Bump interactively are advanced options which we can explore once we are comfortable with the basics.
Bevel Index: How much slope needs to be added to the frame
Inner Shadow width : Width of the shadow of the frame
Innter Shadow Opacity :Opacity of the inner shadow.
Use layers : To retain the layers gimp creates for adding the frame, if the box is not checked gimp merges all the layers and creates a single layered image.

Now click on ok and we can see gimp will uickly add the frame as selected by the various options. The following is the result of addition of a frame to the above image.

To find if cpu is 32bit or 64 bit in linux

Here are two ways of finding out,using linux, whether a processor on a system is 32bit or 64 bit.

1. Using proc entry.

Run the command

The above output clearly indicates that the address size of the cpu is 32 bits and hence does not support 64 bit.

2. Using the command cpuid.

For this we will have to install the package cpuid

After the installation run the command

From the above output too we can conclude that the cpu is a 32bit architecture.

Binary clock on linux terminal

Here is how we can create a binary clock on the Linux terminal. We will need to install the package binclock which can be done in the debian based systems

Now launch a terminal and run the command

To understand the output add the option "-n"

The binary time is in the format HH:MM:SS. The first column represents the first number of HH the second column the second number of HH and so on.

binclock by default provides the output in color which can be turned of by adding the option --color=off
