Wondered if there could be a way to mimic the old dbase menus from Freddies Fish market in bash . This what I came up with:

Dbase:

File listing to html

Downlloaded some pdf files, but wanted to access them from the local server. Did not want to edit several hundred lines into an html file so I create a batch file. Then the job was done in seconds rather than hours. Learned a bit more about sed in the process.

# turn a pdf list into a usable http file for a web server.
ls *.pdf > pdflist
cut -d "." -f1 pdflist > descripts
sed -i -e 's/^/<a href=\"/' pdflist
sed -i 's/$/\"\>/'...

Long time no talk.

Have not made an entry in a long time. Accidently killed my pogoplug and my beaglebone black. I will probably find a fix eventually for the both of them. Still have my arch PII box, but I need to update it.

Think I have made a zillon ota foil based tv antennas. The foil antennas do not get all the channels, you almst have to have a good metal antenna to complement a foil antenna.

Tried to redo the arch linux for my pogoplug. for some reason the batch file to do the image creation foobarred the boot of the hd on my host system. Thank god I can at least still get at my data. Have a spare drive that I may just do a clean install. then I will move the data over.One of the few times in twenty some odd years linux has ever really screwed up. Using a different machine for the time being. will not run that script on it.

Looking in the closet and can not believe how...
