When I had a first look on it, I didn't like it. Now, one year later, I checked again - and now I really do: is a really privacy oriented search engine. But under its very clear surface it also has other features:
  • unbiased search results, NOT depending on any profile that you got. See
  • privacy, doesn't save your data, nor does it turn it to the found website. See
  • instant answers (like "define:TERM"

Automatically set file date from EXIF data

Posted 12-27-2010 at 03:54 PM by jere21
Updated 12-27-2010 at 03:59 PM by jere21

You can set the creation date of a picture or video as its access and modification time: If the creation date was saved in the exif data of some media, you can extract it with "exiftool -ee -CreateDate" and then "touch" the file with that time.

To do this automatically save the following script e.g. as /usr/local/bin/exiftool_set_create_date
# exiftool_set_create_date: set the file date from exif "Creation Date".
echo -n "$@:

Sorting pictures, removing duplicates

Posted 11-20-2010 at 09:37 AM by jere21
Updated 10-11-2014 at 11:02 AM by jere21

EDIT 2012-02-03/2014-10-11:
In Debian I just discovered "duff". A tool to find duplicate files-.-
Unfortunately it doesn't work with symbolic links to files.

All files with their md5sum
find . -type f -exec md5sum '{}' ';' > $PICS
Lists with only md5sum, once with duplicates removed (should be improved to handle double spaces in filenames).
cat $PICS | sed -r "s|^(.*)
