This is pretty cool: Audiowaveform, a command-line utility for rendering waveform images from audio files, from the BBC.

Compiled nicely on FreeBSD with no source changes.

Welp, family car spontaneously combusted after causing us trouble for years. At least we won't need to pay to get it repaired each month now.

@erkin It's quite a conundrum combining the gambler's fallacy and Murphy's law.

@erkin Looks like some kind of surreal world of Murphy's laws.

Okay, the fuse blew and now I'm in pitch dark. There's no way I'm going to finish this project in time.

And again! I should invest in a torch.

Did you know that 8 is the only prime divisible by itself?

I think I caught cold yesterday. Terrible timing too; I've got a project to finish by Sunday.
