Al Bell's legacy.

Posted 10-26-2012 at 12:01 PM by peonuser

Downloaded and ran CosmoPBX in a virtual machine. Was able to get ekiga to connect to it without a problem.

Mythtv box somehow had a capacitor broke partly off. Desoldered the cap and bought a replacement. Will have to install the new capacitor.

Finally got the raspberry pi. Made a power adapter that would use the power supply from the Nslu2 with a cheap one dollar micro usb adapter from Frys. That worked.

Install debian for raspberry pi. Installed a...

Haskell shell scripting!

Posted 10-25-2012 at 11:19 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Practical shell scripting AND full-fledged Haskell functional programming at the same time!? Is it really possible to have your cake and eat it too!? I'm sweating with excitement at my recent discovery.

Bash quickie: loop N times, without doing math

Tags bash, loop

I thought that the only way to do such type of loop in Bash would require something like "n=$(($n+1))" within the loop, with the loop being conditioned to "n" adding up to whatever you want, such as "until ((n==30)) ; do". But you can actually do "for i in {1..20} ; do <whatever> ; done". That's somewhat similar to Basic's "for i=1 to 20 ; whatever ; next i".
