In GNOME 3.X The screen lock time setting is set either to 1 minute 15 minutes or NEVER.
So what if you would like to,
Set the gnome screen lock settings value to 30 minutes or one Hour
Here is how:
For 30 minutes lock screen setting:
linux:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 1800
Set GNOME lock time to 1 hour
linux:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 3600
The setting is set in seconds so quickest way to calculate is to divide by 60 (seconds), you can calculate easily the time you like with BC (arbitrary precision calculation language) like so:
linux:~$ echo '3600/60' | bc
Lets say you would like to set your screen to lock every 3 hours, the delay value to set in org.gnome.desktop.session would be:
linux:~$ echo '3600*3' | bc
Once you set the value to a different than the 3 recognized ones would show in GNOME Control Center as Never (depending on the distro).

I've decided to delete my linkedin account as I don't see any good in constact connectiodness and being part of many "social" networks which if one thinks in deeply are not social but anti-social.
You just stay at home staring at a screen and it will be like this until the end of your days and even worser for the generations to come. Computer revolution or digital revolution is in reality huge devolutin (devil-lution)
To delete the linkedin account I used a short tutorial provided by This post
TO reach to your Profile settings, use upper right corner of your browser and follow the menus:
Settings -> Account -> Close your account
Once, trying to delete your account, linkedin will try to manipulate you to stay in Linkedin by pushing some of your contacts, pointing how you will get disconnected from him.
I'm amazed how impudent this guys can be, actually, its not just them. If you have tried or deleted your facebook account before time you will have faced, exactly the same thing. A profile (person picture) which was recently browsed by you will be shown to you and be said you will be unable to connect with him any more. Well who cares if it is God's will we will connect again 🙂
The problem with us modern people is we're so deluded that we have started relying more on technology and human knowledge than to God. For most people who are atheists relying more on technology than on God for their lives seems reasanable However for us Christians putting more trust in technology than in Gods providence for us is sinful and deadly.
I'm starting to get the conclusion, non-technological societies are more happier than technological ones. In that sense, we the Bulgarians are blessed, because technology is not so widely spread.

Though I really hate facebook, I was asked today by a friend who is not really into computers to disable, mail notification for him.
The mail notification, annoying feature is one of the stupidest idea someone ever had, as very active facebook users had their inbox totally spammed like with messages from facebook …
Anyways, here is how I removed the facebook email notification
1. Login to facebook
2. Go to Account Settings and click on notifications and then uncheck the option, e.g.:
Account Settigns -> Profile Settings -> Messages
There are a number of messages that facebook by default sents, so in order to remove the mail notification messages I scrolled down and unchecked all related to facebook email notification.
