Going thin...

Had not set up an ltsp server in a long long time. Just to keep my fingers in it, I took an 800 mhz amd single core system to use as the server. I think it had Jaunty on it. Upgraded to lucid. The system already had two nics in it so it made things easier.

sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone.
make sure to set the nic to autostart or a bunch of services will not start.
set the ltsp network nic as static.
Altered the dhcp configuration files for the nic...

External harddrive speed woes

Posted 02-22-2011 at 01:31 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

A few minutes ago I was preparing to distribute video encoding of files on my portable harddrive across multiple computers in the house. Just to get the quality and codec settings right before I finished, I started encoding one of the videos on only my main computer.

I'm glad I ran this test.

At first when encoding, I noticed the second CPU wasn't being used. I thought perhaps the encoder wasn't designed to be multi-threaded, but that would be ridiculous. I decided...

batch resize images using find, xargs and convert

Posted 02-20-2011 at 04:30 PM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, find, xargs, convert, image processing

'convert' command, which is a part of ImageMagick package can be used for image resizing, but it lacks ability to process multiple files (in version of ImageMagick 6.5.7-8 2010-12-02). Instead of writing a shell script you can use find and xargs commands to collect filenames and invoke convert with one filename at a time, like this:

Code:
find -iname "*.jpg" -printf "%f\0" \
 | xargs -0 -I {} convert
