Download files from a list while (re)naming them at the same time

"wget -i" is perhaps the tool of choice to download files from a list, but it doesn't allow you to set custom file names for the individual files on the list file. So, if you want to download a bunch of podcast episodes, but would want each file to have a descriptive file name rather than "12345.mp3", it won't help you.

A simple alternative is to have a download list with the file URLS followed by the "-O" flag and desired file name, and read this file...

Six year hiatus and Where I am Now

Posted 11-26-2015 at 10:00 AM by stureedy

It seems I've accidentally taken a six year hiatus from blog posts on Linux Questions. That was not my intention. I just have three other blogs and they have taken precedence.

So, now I'm running Slackware64 on all our servers. I retired the last Slackware 12.2 (32-bit) box earlier this year. The date was May 14th, for those keeping track.

CruxEX 3.2 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.2 (latest version, released 151123), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.2 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.2 2016 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with my special kernel 4.3.0-x86_64-cruxex, with support for extra everything.

More Linux in the Wildó Does It Mean Anything?

Posted 11-25-2015 at 02:39 AM by John Roe

There are more Linux flavors to make the head spin than the biblical psalms- and that is no jest. With the advent of Unix-esque systems like Apple's OSX or iOS & Google's Android, there are now even mundanely kitchen appliances running the kernel. To the inclined it seems a great victory over the closed source systems; does that mean anything, though?

The Authorized Version

Posted 11-25-2015 at 02:23 AM by John Roe

Quotes about the AKJV.
HL Mencken
It is the most beautiful of all the translations of the Bible; indeed, it is probably the most beautiful piece of writing in all the literature of the world. Many attempts have been made to purge it of its errors and obscurities. An English Revised Version was published in 1885 and an American Revised Version in 1901, and since then many learned but misguided men have sought to produce translations that should be mathematically accurate, and in the plain
