Another user from a different forum asked me a question. I gave, what I though was, a good answer so I'm posting it here for all LQ to enjoy.

Monitoring sound over time for long periods to see trends using a microphone

Recently a post was made requesting a solution to detecting sound in a studio to see if it is populated with lots of noise (lots of noise=people/bands playing) this way the person monitoring it wouldn't have to go through the trouble of hulking all their stuff to the studio.

I posted an interesting solution so I'm sharing it here and a little more on this blog. See post #9 of this thread.

I'm going to expand upon that munin plugin and make it a little more robust and...

With tax season coming up I have been asked to set up a certain centralized tax service for a company. I won't mention the company nor the well known tax program involved as this post isn't about flaming a product but just to show you how cool commands in Linux can be used to solve, what would originally seem like, complicated problems.

Here's the scenario. The software runs on JBoss (a java app server) and it has log output. During client testing with fake social security numbers...

Ventrilo and RHEL/Fedora

Well I just set ventrilo up on my internal dev server. Just trying it out because I've heard other people talk about it and thought I would integrate it better with my system. I'm running Fedora 14 on my server but all of these scripts should work on Fedora 12/14 and RedHat EL 5/6. Untested on the new Fedora 16. Here's the service script.
Code:
#!/bin/bash

#For RHEL and Fedora-like operating systems

# chkconfig: - 0 0

Stress testing a new hard drive...

You should always stress test a new harddrive when you buy it.

Some people say, "Just hook it up for a few months and keep unimportant data on it. If it breaks in that 1-3 month time then it will be good for 3 or 4 years."

While that metric is okay at best I prefer to take a more systematic approach to it. I want to fill the whole hard drive with random 1 and 0 over a constant and long period of time. I do that because you are stressing the hard drive out...
