My eye hurts. And I have a cold. Dang.

Posted 12-28-2010 at 04:41 AM by lupusarcanus (Lone Wolf)

It literally feels like I'm crying. But I'm not. Doesn't hurt too awful much, but it does make it harder to see stuff.

Who needs a radio when I have a computer?

I've been trying to record sound on my laptop for the past few days without decent results.

Audacity's noise removal filter did a good job but left me with some ugly artifacts that did not suit my needs.

Now I've tried an...

You can set the creation date of a picture or video as its access and modification time: If the creation date was saved in the exif data of some media, you can extract it with "exiftool -ee -CreateDate" and then "touch" the file with that time.

To do this automatically save the following script e.g. as /usr/local/bin/exiftool_set_create_date
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# exiftool_set_create_date: set the file date from exif "Creation Date".

rsync server boot/control script

Posted 12-25-2010 at 01:14 AM by catkin

Hello

I couldn't find one to suit anywhere so wrote this.

It is not really needed during shutdown because all it does is send SIGTERM to all the rsync server processes and the Linux shutdown process does that anyway. rsync server processes are well behaved and do terminate quickly in response to SIGTERM so there's no need to check that the processes have terminated and escalate to SIGKILL (which the Linux shutdown process does anyway).
