Started writing the routines (as I have spare time) for the choreography of the computer controlled light strings on the Xmas tree. Everything from Kitt (the tv car) to just random display of lights. I have about twenty ideas so far but have only coded five or six. If I could have about forty would be optimum. Since I am using the parallel port to control the strings, lots of simple binary is involved. Still have to do all the soldering for the set up.

The last set of temp sensors...

guitar pro 6 on 64 bit Ubuntu

Posted 11-10-2010 at 04:23 PM by jkzfixme

Guitar Pro 6. It ROCKS. It rocks out on Penguin Power. This is the first time I have paid for software in years ( they offer a trial version as well). What more can you ask for ? I have been using Guitar Pro since 99 when I lived in Paris, and it has helped me learn countless songs. There is however a catch , it only officially supports 1386 architecture. Not to worry, if you are rocking 64 bits of awesome like me you can just bring up a terminal and do the following.

eof marker on tape

When using the 'mt' command:
I am using a linux system with a HP_Ultrium_960 (800GB) tape drive. I inadvertantly used the 'weof' command when testing and wrote an 'eof' marker at the beginning of the tape. I have used the command 'gtar -ztvf /dev/rmt/2' and get an 'unexpected end of file' prompt.
Can I reverse this 'eof' placement somehow? Also can I use commands such as the 'fsf' to read after the 'eof' marker. I need to retrieve the data.

Appreciate if someone could...

No chlorine needed in the Linux gene pool!

After reading Paul Hudson’s article entitled 24 things we’d change about Linux, I exchanged a few emails with him. As I understand it, his underlying point is that all the lovely diversity between Linux distros makes it hard for an experienced Linux user to provide advice/support to newer users. This, amongst other things, presents a barrier to wider adoption.

From my point of view, I came to the conclusion that the answer is to RTFM. Fortunately, ‘the fine manual’ is something...
