Can you guess the game?

Hi everyone

The Lord has been directing me to an entry in another one of my devotionals* entitled "A High Calling" that has to do with the teachers we've had in our lives, the battle against ignorance that they wage, the lack of appreciation overall for their profession as opposed to others (in our society) and to give God thanks for those that have taught us and for "the lifelong value of their investment in you."

In my prayer time with God,...

So spring is here, really??

Posted 03-25-2016 at 01:26 PM by onebuck

Hi,

Been home for three weeks today and spring is in the chilly air! Played some senior golf with other members on some warmer days. It's 40 F outside and a bit cold to be on the course.

I have been trying to get things ready for the season. I took my Cub into the shop for some warranty work. Turns out the shop said 'The trans-axle had to be replaced. To much work to just replace the seals and that the time spent would exceed the money earned from the Cub warranty.'...

A little background on myself, and thoughts to a new 'blog-column'

Posted 03-23-2016 at 10:13 AM by goumba

Hey guys,

So, a little about me. Until a few years back, I was a big computer nerd. I still use Linux exclusively, but I used to spend every spare waking hour (that I wasn't working my day job which was typically 12-16 hours a day) just killing time. I know UNIX and Linux, but never really delved too deep.

Enter the big D word, which I blamed on my time wasting in front a computer. Where did my life go? I hit 35 years old, and 'd' set in big time. Not where I wanted...

Silly volume control scripts for openbox that probably won't work for everyone

Posted 03-20-2016 at 10:03 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-20-2016 at 10:22 PM by the dsc

Code:
#!/bin/bash

# volume changer+notifier, using notify-send, and tested only with xfce4-notifyd
# the syntax is the same of the "end" of what you'd use in plain amixer, see "$1"
# Ex.: 5%-, 5%+, 30, 60%

com=(`amixer set "Master" $1`)

vol1=${com[20]} 

# and here's why it won't work for everybody. The output of amixer includes
# things like soundcard features, which are array elements I'm just

Monitor your laptop with fswebcam

This is a little tutorial on how to take a picture from the webcam with systemD timers every 15 minutes.


Install fswebcam a commandline utility for grabbing pics off the webcam

Create a script in /usr/local/bin/ called snap that grabs a pic and put date and time in the filename
Don't forget to chmod +x to make it executable
Code:
#/usr/local/bin/snap 
#!/bin/bash
_now=$(date +"%Y_%m_%d_%H_%M")
/usr/bin/fswebcam
