From a Believer to an Agnostic

So, yes, I was a believer in God and used to think of him as a protector of all. I, as a Hindu, have pictures of our deities at home. I used to touch the deity's feet before leaving home asking him to take care of me and my family members on travel, provide us the intelligence to tackle the life etc.

I'll post more techie stuff when I get some time...

grabbing videos from youtube

There are lots of full length movies ( on youtube . You cannot grab that video as it is drm encrypted . So I decided to use ffmpeg
I took a screenshot of web browser (opera) then opened jpg file in kolourpaint to find out top left & bottom right of video frame in browser . They were found out to be
24,129 & 669,524
which indicated 645x395 video dimension
So , I ran
ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 646x396  -r 30 -i :0.0+24,129 -sameq out.mpg
