Fornøyd med mixed theme og noen tips fra ibm

Filed under: Dagbok_no — Thalamus @ 09:22

Har funnet meg ett relativt ok … medium mørkt theme ved å kombinere litt av hvert … i det meste fra standard themes i Fedora.
Her er noe av informasjonen rundt dette …

I bunnen ligger Dark Nimbus.
Her bruker jeg standard controls og colors til temaet.
Window Border – er hentet fra ‘Blue-joy’ og ikonene er hentet fra ‘Dropline Neu!’
I tilegg har jeg laget min egen pakke over fonter jeg bruker mest til programmering, men, også nå som standard terminal font.

… vel, kanskje ikke standard da – men, lett tilgjengelig fra gnome-look.org.

Kom over en artikkel – som inneholdt for så vidt kjent informasjon. Men, alikevel en grei oversikt for fremtidige oppslag.

VLC and – streaming your desktop …

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 21:00

Came across a blog post today about VLC and streaming your desktop to anyone that connects to your computer on the published port.

Linux as the server.

vlc screen:// :screen-fps=30 :screen-caching=100 --sout '#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=4096,acodec=mpga,ab=256,scale=1,width=1280,height=800}:rtp{dst=192.168.1.2,port=1234,access=udp,mux=ts}'

Windows …

vlc screen:// :screen-fps=30 :screen-caching=100 :sout=#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=2048,scale=1,acodec=mpga,ab=192,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=rtp,mux=ts,dst=192.168.1.1:1234}}

Your will have to change the dst=192.168.1.1 to your own ip address and ofc … the others need to open VLC and connect to the port … here 1234.
Have fun.

BigAdmin – Shellcommands

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 20:44

http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/shellme/ is a nice collection – which I know I will be having a look at from time to time. Just making myself a note of it. Had some spare time today – since the rain is poring down and my wife spent a big part of this weekend away shopping … in Trondheim. Used some of the time to upgrade my laptop to Fedora 13 – tested out installing the live versions … to usb – using ‘unetbootin‘ after making a full backup of my laptop … using ‘clonezilla‘ – a free disk image solution. Testing the clonezilla was mainly done in order to be sure how it is working – before I’m going to help my friend making a backup of his new PC. I also started checking the html code of this site and verified it. Once you start to verify the pages – you soon realize how hard it must be for a programmer to make a web browser. Much of mine where not compliant with the standards I had said I was using. But, now … at least – some of the pages could have had a Valid401 emblem on them 🙂

Heia Ghana

Filed under: Dagbok_no — Thalamus @ 22:32

Fotball VM har pågått nesten 3 uker nå. Og, snart skal ekstra omgangene mellom Ghana og Uruguai settes igang. Gud hvor irriterende det er å må høre på vår tidligere landslagstrener …. Nils Johan Sembs …. att det går ann ???!! Hvem i hule hælvete ansatte den idioten som landslagstrener …. i ’98. Hadde jeg hatt alternative kommentatorer ikveld hadde jeg skiftet kanal med en gang.
