Released a new Natanas album titled "Tupla is taking over. Suicide." find it here: https://natanas.bandcamp.com
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
- C.S. Lewis
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.
