Save it as a script, perhaps even as an alias:

mpc play `shuf -e $(mpc playlist -f "[(%position%) %artist% %title% %file%]" |egrep $1 | grep -Eo "\(.*\)"| sed 's:).*::g' | sed 's:(::g') -n 1`
Then type at some terminal:

mpcr[andom] <artist/keyword>

Creating a VPN in Minutes Using Remobo

Posted 08-11-2010 at 05:06 AM by sridhar11

Remobo is a free software which can be used to replace the paid versions of existing difficult to use VPN setups
as it can create a VPN instantly and securely. It lets you login easily and add users to your buddy list, and
create a secure network for you. In private chat messaging, the file sharing client helps share information
within the buddy list as well. Remobo lets you control your computer and access files securely while away from
the system.

Atomic Magazine now on my hitlist

Posted 08-09-2010 at 06:27 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I was a happy customer of Atomic magazine, until I received this month's issue today.

Although you could install a free version of the Linux operating system, Windows 7 has many more applications ( both free and commercial ) and it's much easier to use and far superior for gaming.
Any Linux guru should point out four things that are blatantly wrong here. It is thanks to words such as this that people fear free operating systems, and vicious rumours start.

Still waiting for my SheevaPlug. The website mentions the 11th of August as the delivery day, so with a bit of luck I should get it by Friday...maybe. Not sure what I'll be using it for, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. If I can get ARMedslack running on it, without totally screwing everything up, I'll be happy.
