I had been working on a folk album for some time. I have released it.
Filbuth - Holographic Metempsychosis
Recorded live primitively, at Natanas Studios in Wyoming, with acoustic instruments (analog drums, 12 & 6 string guitar, alto & tenor recorder, irish whistle, picolo, pan pipes, acordian, hurdy gurdy, regular & chomatic harmonica, acoustic bass, mbira, glockenspiel), except the keyboards on track three. Inspired by the changing seasons and a dose of Hermetics.
I wanted to digitize a moleskine to pdf using a sony digital camera. To photograph the pages, I need to hold the camera in a portrait orientation. This script expects to be run in a directory you’ve copied your pictures to, then generates an optimized pdf file:
#dirty but it works
for x in *
convert -rotate 90 $x /tmp/t/$x
img2pdf /tmp/t/*JPG -o /tmp/t/$1.pdf
pdf2ps /tmp/t/$1.pdf /tmp/t/$1.ps
ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/ebook /tmp/t/$1.ps ~/$1.pdf
rm -rf /tmp/t
inspired by @jirka 's latest phlog, a script to sort lynx bookmarks (you need to save the header, up to the UL in a seperate file): gopher://1436.ninja/0/Twitpher/YK8z-lynx_bookmarks_sort_script
Flying to North Dakota tonight for a week in the north. When I return home, I will have an Apple iPod 5G, an SD card adaptor from iFlash, a nice device opening tool, and a 256gb SD card waiting for me. The hoped for result is a nicely built, solid state RockBox device.
In retrospect I likely should have ordered a battery too. The eBay listing claimed it was good. You can always trust eBay sellers, so I am probably fine.
@twovoyagers - your tip about the for i in *... helped a bunch as I used it to convert -resize about a hundred images. Greatly reducing the load weight of the page!
My music label website was down this morning, the gopher site was still up. I ssh’d into the VPS and it was responding super slowly. tmux was not coming up when I did get in... odd. Ran df and found the hard-drive was 100% full. WTF. It turned out /var/spool/mqueue was taking up >33% of the drive. Too many files to rm * on. I had to rm -rf the directory and recreate it. A reboot later and all is well. Now to figure out WTH happened.
Use WSL on Windows 10? I do at work (have no choice of OS on my work laptop). If you install VcXsrv (http://vcxsrv.sourceforge.net) you can run xorg apps in individual windows that behave as native Windows programs.
Experiment: I think the antiX install on the CF currently in the Lifebook P1120 is going to get slim removed tonight so I can try out the instructions here: https://github.com/patrickhaller/no-wm -- let's try X11 without a WM, just for chocolate-doom and DOSbox. Since the drive bay is easy to get to, I am going to try out openBSD and some other OS's on this computer as well.
