New Computer Ubunting Away

Posted 04-01-2014 at 08:50 PM by zaivala

A friend of mine sent me a Dell Optiplex 740, complete with box only and no hard drive, only 1 Gb RAM. I happened to have two sticks of RAM in my dead HP which fit the bill, and an old hard drive which never too a liking to Windows XP. Turns out I was running Ubuntu 10.04 on it, in 64-bit flavor. Well, that works for me. I turned the computer on and it ran. That's all I wanted. I upgraded to the latest LTS of Ubuntu.

I have two problems. One is that it boots up with sound muted. I...

Pyplate - a mini Wordpress written in Python now available for beta testing

Posted 03-30-2014 at 07:44 AM by Pyplate
Tags cms, python

I finally released a beta version of my Python CMS. You can check it out at www.pyplate.com. It's powered by an SQLite database, and it supports some useful features like page caching, SEO friendly URLs, a sitemap and RSS feed. The UI is simple, and easy to use.

I've tested Pyplate on a Raspberry Pi and a PC with Apache. I'll be doing testing with Nginx shortly.

I've set up a Pyplate forum at http://www.pyplate.com/forum/index.php where you can ask questions.

Gruesome PDF to JPG converter script

Requires gs, imagemagick, jpegoptim, cpulimit, and "coolloop" (or maybe not).

Has no options or anything.

You run it like:

howeveryounameit.sh appropriate-filename portable-document-file-to-convert.pdf

The result will be:

appropriate-filename-001.jpg, appropriate-filename-002.jpg and so on.

So you don't add numbers or extension on the first parameter ($1). I guess it may not deal well with spaces...

Ugly script to sleep "accordingly" to CPU temperature, on loops

Posted 03-28-2014 at 09:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

One could simply add some arbitrary, constant sleep time within the loop, but that will likely make the whole thing slower than it needs to be. If within...
