They do not come because they do not care

Posted 01-27-2011 at 04:32 AM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

Linux captured 2% of the desktop and is not moving anywhere despite all the Ubuntu efforts. It took me long time before I could formulate my understanding of the WHY.

Re: 2%. Some say it is 1% and the other say it is biased. Yet the other say it should be estimated at 5% based on indirect data. My impression is that whenever I run over something that looks both measured and unbiased in the Net, it is 2%. So, let it be 2%. The number does not matter much, what matters is that it is...

Honored and humbled....

Screen 'not connected'? Where's the PVA...

Posted 01-26-2011 at 09:34 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

Slackware-13.1-Hacks-WAV to MP3

Posted 01-26-2011 at 09:20 PM by arniekat

Open a Terminal in the directory with the *.wav files and run this command:

for i in *.wav; do lame "$i" "`basename "$i" .wav`".mp3; done

NOTE-This will create the MP3 files with the same name as the WAV files.
