I just ran into a rather nice utility. It's basically screen, but
called tmux and it's a little more friendly. If you use screen you
might want to check this out.

There's also Ubuntu's Byobu.
Screen is still the best thing ever invented since Al Gore invented the

Byobu is sort of a front end that runs on top of screen or tmux (in
Ubuntu it uses tmux by default).

I used both screen and tmux. tmux seems to have more functions, and is
easier to script!

Sometimes I think Dan C is on auto-pilot. He should know better than to
call me a mac-droid.

Speaking of games, does Steam have anything you like?

I decided a ways back that I would be better off just getting a console
and not worrying about games on the computer. I'm starting to feel that
way about media as well. Media and games are so bulky and I get sick of
backing them up and storing them on external hard drives. I have a Kindle
Fire on my desk and use it like a TV and Music player. And I just bought
one of the Nintendo Wii U consoles no one seems to want and have been
playing an adventure game which is very fun.

you the program (probably some sort of faulty 'watchdog' routine') is

Indeed.... those smart devices are more about games than career. :)

I have no interest in consoles, though. A gaming PC is enough.

It all depends on what it is. Drives are pretty large these days. So
even with a single drive it may take you awhile before you need to worry
about the fact that you're running out of space.

I think he should get a monitor with less reflective surround,
especially if he's going to put the camera down in front of it [1]
while he tries to unravel and get his 'top quality / disposable'(?)
ESD strap ad stick it onto his arm (movie gold that little interlude,
over 3.5 minutes of a 4.21 minute video, just getting the wrist strap
on (and badly at that))!



A real 'professional' would have used a professional wrist strap and
plugged it straight onto the available button.

Professional ESD control systems do NOT use wrist straps, idiot.

I'll bet that you do not even own a smock.

You are an idiot. ALL LED displays go white when you point a camera
at them, and they are carrying the feed. Even if they are not, the
camera sensor array gets flooded.

Whooosh. No Krusty, I was talking about the reflection of *you* and
yer grid on the surround of your monitor.

See, NOTHING about the display, all to do with the REFLECTION ...

First we have you pointing out the proper ESD stud, then we have the

Yesterday you were declaring that it was 2 minutes and 35 seconds.
Now we see you stating a whole 34 seconds.

You are losing credence with every post you make. Not that you had
any to start with.

And you seem to have a hard on for posting the link. Not only twice

we have the pleasure of watching you struggle with yer cheap and nasty
ESD strap like a child discovering a toilet roll.
Yesterday you were declaring that it was 2 minutes and 35 seconds.
Now we see you stating a whole 34 seconds.
And yet another massive *whoosh*. One was you faffing about with the
cheap, nasty, disposable 'free with a box of cereal ESD strap and the
other was how long we could watch you doing the same via the
reflection in your monitor. Is it really so complicated that you can't
keep up ... (you don't need to answer that of course).

... like some old lady with her knitting caught up.

Is that right. Well, no wonder you can even start to accept such cr*p
solutions as even vaguely acceptable then. If I only had that cheap,
nasty, disposable junk available, I'd just use my experience re
handling ESD sensitive devices and go without (as that would be just
as effective as your little uneducated charade).

Bwhaha. Yeah, like just slipping my professional wristband onto my
wrist, plugging the coily lead onto the mat and the mat into the
grounding plug. Yeah, that would seem like much more of a struggle
than the video you produced, clearly showing you taking 10x the time
for 10% of the solution. Bwhahahaha!
Post by DecadentLinuxUserNumeroUno
Chalk up another T i m T a r d in

Remember what I said ... the more you struggle and squirm, the deeper
you will sink (and you are deep enough already).

So, I bet this sinking feeling will generate another outburst of
disgusting diatribe and some fantasy threats of magic 'flying lead',
simply because you can't stand that someone you think is uneducated,
constantly reveals you for the sham and windbag you are.

Thanks for playing ... ;-)

More proof of just how utterly clueless you are about ESD concerns,

Your entire presence here is a charade. Mainly because despite your

Otherwise you would curtail the insulting demeanor and actually
attempt to learn something.

But the group knows that you are not here for that gain. You are here

I was wearing one yesterday as it happens, when I was assembling my
new WHS. Luckily it only takes me seconds to roll out the 1.5m x 500mm
mat, plug in the earth bonding plug and slip on the wristband (all the
cables are already hooked up) and then clip to the chassis of whatever
I'm working on with its own wire. Any sensitive devices to be
installed are placed on the mat before they are removed from their ESD
packaging. You demonstrated clearly in that and other videos you don't
have the first clue about how to actually work safely. Just because
you work with people who do, doesn't mean you know jot. I was
*teaching* people how to work safely ITRW for seven years.

Whereas without REGULAR efficacy testing, a watchband style device

They are disposable due to their low cost, idiot.

They are in no way shape or form any less efficacious. Not that a

They are, in fact, better functioning, because there is no resistor in
line with the cord, which can fail. The strap link is the resistor.
But you probably are unaware of the particular elements mentioned, much

Ok, lets restrict it to yer average Jo, just doing a bit of work with
static sensitive devices for a hobby in his own home or workshop. He
would *always* use cheap, nasty disposable wristbands, *stuck* to his
wrist and *stuck* the mat (they were supposed to be stuck to the
device you are working on to minimise the build up of static between
*you* and *it* (not that you understand the basic usage even), over a
reusable wristband, cords and even a bench mat (rather than a field
portable kit).

BWHAHAHAHA ... no, it gets even funnier!

1) Yeah, resistors are known to fail aren't they, them being so

2) You think that a strip of carbon, stuck to some light tape is more
reliable than any wire / resistor combo (that uses carbon in a much
more predictable form).

All I am stating was even for your 'hobby' usage, a better, or at
worst, more sophisticated / re-usable solution was already available,
even to the point of you having a connection point (that you point out
yourself on your video) ready for a 'decent' / re-useable solution.

Now, if you *prefer* to use some cheap and nasty / disposable ESD
strap for some sad / bizarre reason then that's your call.

If you used that cheap and nasty disposable solution because you
didn't happen to have, or couldn't afford or just didn't know existed,
then that's also something else.

However, to claim that the very solution that millions of people are
using every day is not appropriate or current, just shows how
blinkered and strange you are.

whilst it's wedged under the mat, 'firmLY grounded' then I guess you
were. Most people wouldn't swap that 'solution' for a more
professional one that's for sure. Still doesn't cover the grounding of
the cubox though does it (and as it was that you were working on it
was that you should have been connected to (as well as ground)).

Nice try though, lying loser.
Lying? I'd like you to show me where? You can only lie when you state
a known untruth and I haven't done that. All I have *suggested* is
that we have no evidence to prove that your workbench was properly
grounded, only your say-so and I wouldn't trust that as far as I could
throw you, especially in the light of how you twist and squirm to
evade the real world facts.

Remember Krusty, the more you squirm the deeper you will sink.

I was wearing one yesterday as it happens, when I was assembling my
new WHS. Luckily it only takes me seconds to roll out the 1.5m x 500mm
mat, plug in the earth bonding plug and slip on the wristband (all the
cables are already hooked up) and then clip to the chassis of whatever
I'm working on with its own wire. Any sensitive devices to be
installed are placed on the mat before they are removed from their ESD
packaging. You demonstrated clearly in that and other videos you don't
have the first clue about how to actually work safely.
Really? Iterate for us just what I did that was "unsafe".
Post by T i m
Just because
you work with people who do,
I instruct people at work, who THEN "do".
Post by T i m
doesn't mean you know jot.
A dope like you has no clue as to what I know. I assure you that it
*IS* "a lot".
Post by T i m
I was
*teaching* people how to work safely ITRW for seven years.
Until anyone who ever employed you realized that your tragically
flawed personality renders you unemployable. Which is why you are not
currently working a real job ITRW. You are too full of yourself, boy.

When I populate an advanced chassis with $15k+ and $20k+ circuit
cards, you can bet that myself and anyone else in the area are
protected.

But a dope like you has never worked on real commercial gear. You
barely can get a PC working, and that ONLY because Windows set you up
with a driver compendium in their install disc(s). Which is why you
came here and became a troll. So you could piss and moan about what
Windows will do that you think Linux will not.

I work with sensitive GaAs devices on gov millimeter and microwave
equipment (you'll have to google, child). Frequencies dopes like you
only can wonder about what goes on in.

I think I have the ESD abatement thing down, or the fail rate in our
lab would be far higher than it is. Ooops... you lose... again.

And a retarded fuck like you wouldn't know what "mission critical"
meant if it bit you in the ass.

So yeah... I know at least an order of magnitude more about ESD
abatement AND concerns than an idiot like you EVER will.

Yeah, so we saw with your lovely demonstration video. How long did it
take to get that cheap and nasty disposable wristband out of its
packet and (sort of) wrapped round your wrist (which didn't work so
you held onto it instead)?

How long to get it wedged under your ESD mat (if that is what it is)
when there was an actual ESD button sitting there just waiting to be
used?

Just how was the Cubox earthed again?

Remember what I said ... the more you struggle and squirm, the deeper
you will sink (and you are deep enough already).
So, I bet this sinking feeling will generate another outburst of
disgusting diatribe and some fantasy threats of magic 'flying lead',
simply because you can't stand that someone you think is uneducated,
constantly reveals you for the sham and windbag you are.
Thanks for playing ... ;-)

I DL to watch a movie if I did not see it at the theater, but wish to
decide whether to add it to my library or not. If I like it, I buy the
bluray. (or plain DVD). I am up to S.5 on NCIS and at $20 a season that
is pretty cheap. Never DLd those though. No compression at all. I DL
the best quality version I can find.

I do not think I have any DLd flics that I do not have the disc for,
however. Once I decide I like it, I buy it or dump it if I don't like
it.

I have not DLd one in ages (months), so any titles I have are surely
in my hard collection. When I fly, I like to take the file on the
laptop, instead of playing the companion DVD or such that comes with the
movie. Mainly because the files one finds online have already been
encoded for you, and are better quality than the DVD or the DL the movie
house offers. Since I own the disc (some several times over), I can
play the file from my laptop hard drive in flights. That saves the
laptop's batteries from the chore of spinning the disc reader.

When I fly I prefer to have the movie in the device. I take the Kindle
Fire HD with me on flights. It's a good size with good battery life. I
have all my books on it. And I can pre-load it with a few movies from
Amazon before I fly.

You remember that Penn Manor story about those kids at that high school
where the students are being given a Linux laptop? The one where the
students developed their own distributed installation system with code
from SourceForge?

http://www.pennmanor.net/techblog/?p=1847

I read all about it and I bought the exact same laptop. It was just over
$500 with a Haswell core i3, 8GBs of RAM (I added memory) and a 7mm 500
GB HD. I'm running CentOS 6.5 of it. That 3.3 lb laptop has a 7 hour
battery! It has a nice keyboard and an 11.6" display. With a hard drive
that large I can carry all my media if I want to. It holds all my photos,
all my documents, all my ebooks, all my scripts and just some of the good
movies I want to have on hand.

I grabbed the tarball for Eclipse Kepler and installed it by hand. I
configured it with a Perl IDE, Perl-Critic and PadWalker, (Git (Which I
am now reading a book about)), Java, C/C++. All hand configured since RHEL
doesn't yet have Kepler and I wanted Git integration. Those kids picked a
good laptop. I wanted to replace my Dell XPS for a long time. And this
was less than half the price and has a better CPU and intel HD 4000.
Feels like a decent upgrade.

No, not really. In fact I used to use that and went back and tested Theora
+ ogg specifically so a base install of Linux without any restricted
software would work. I re-purchase my previously online purchased music
as CDs and recoded that in ogg. Just current stuff I listen to, plus I
had a fair quantity of existing CDs before I started buying music online.

I keep a pretty clean Linux install these days. The only thing I add is
flash at this point and hopefully WebM removes the need for Flash soon.
Much of YouTube is WebM now. Still not quite there but I would like to
have just a base install with little to nothing patent encumbered. I'm
very close.

Theora is not as good as H.264. But honestly, at the compression levels I
already typically use, it's close enough. I would say encode your next
movie both ways and watch one on top of the other and just decide if you
can live with it. It is fine for me. Not perfect, but good enough.

I have run a few encodes with FFmpeg and libtheora and I have to say
that for the moment I am staying with h.264/libx264. I ran a few
scenes from the Matrix, some action scenes, and theora had some
trouble keeping pace.

Some may be interested in the same scene encoded with FFmpeg/libx265
as the new kid on the block is getting a little usable:

Right now I am using a Moto X which plays my my ogg audio just fine. The
music sits on my server and I just grab any song I want via SFTP. No more
worries about how many devices I am using or activation or anything.
Honestly, it feels great.

The video I deal with two ways. I have a Kindle Fire HD because I tend to
buy from Amazon anyway. If I want to watch a TV series for example, I
likely do that via Amazon Prime or a direct rent or purchase. So I can
watch those on my Kindle or my Wii-U. Both have the Amazon app. Firefox,
which runs in Linux, also lets me watch via the browser. If I want to own
the movie, then I buy it on DVD and just play it on my Blu-ray player. If
I want a copy for computer, then I encode it with Theora + ogg.

I haven't really felt the need to move the movie from my computer to the
Kindle. I actually have quite a few tablets and at this point almost
everything I do comes down to either the Kindle HD or a Nexus 7. I like
the Nexus for reading on my way to work. I buy ebooks from O'Reilly and
transfer them via the web to the kindle. The Nexus 7 has LTE so I take
that one with me. The Kindle stays at home and I just use it much like a
TV. I'm either reading a book on the Nexus 7 or playing Fieldrunners.

I hope to see WebM take off when HTML5 really hits and Flash gets
replaced. I think when that happens then we'll have a good video codec
that is completely open and well supported. We're not their just yet.
Close.

Also VLC is coming to Android. And I am sure once that gets solidified it
will likely let us play vp3/theora/ogg vorbis. So we could go that route
as well.

I use RHEL and it's nice not to have to add a third party package source.
Given the choice I'd like to remain non-patent encumbered. And honestly a
few months ago I didn't know what Theora was. When I first got into
Ubuntu I just thought if I wanted to watch video and play audio I had to
get the restricted software. As you know this is a constant issue and I
wanted to overcome it if possible. It's a little more work for me, true,
but I like what I've been able to do here. It proved to me that this
industry really does have a choice. We don't have to line the pockets of
the MPEG-LA patent holders. I am when I buy a DVD, I know. I hope WebM
changes all that. I want to see Amazon sell audio in FLAC / Ogg. That
would be awesome. And I would love to see video online on vp8/ogg. It's a
choice and I hope we stop feeding the people that lock us in jail and
start rewarding those that free us.

on DVD and then encoding it all. I'm not going to watch a TV series over
and over again.

The problem with that is it's basically a single vendor walled garden.
In terms of mobile devices, you're stuck with Amazon's hardware and only
Amazon's hardware. The only exception is a highly ironic one: Apple
devices. That's about as far way from ideals implied by the use of Ogg
as you can possibly get.
In general any DRM file or stream is problematic and ultimately represents
an extended rental that can be revoked at any time rather than actual ownership.

You somehow missed what I said about ownership. If I want to own it, I
buy it on DVD and compress it to Theora+ogg. If I want to rent it, I rent
it from Amazon via the Kindle. If it is a TV series, I'll really want
Except there's a lot of stuff that you can't "rent" this way.

Quite often, the only option is to "buy" it and to buy it at a price
comparable to physical media. Then on top of that you are VERY limited in
terms of what devices you can view these "rentals" on.

It's a lot like buying into the Apple ecosystem. It's kind of funny
that Apple tablets are the only other ones that support Amazon's "rentals".

No other phones do at all.

then I will buy it on Amazon. I have no intention of buying a TV series
on DVD and then encoding it all. I'm not going to watch a TV series over
and over again.

I also tend to compress down to about 1.3 - 2 GBs per movie with
Theora + ogg.
I admire you for your choice of codecs but are you not tempted by
something like x264 and aac?
Andrew
No, not really. In fact I used to use that and went back and tested
Theora + ogg specifically so a base install of Linux without any
restricted software would work. I re-purchase my previously online
purchased music
Yeah. But how does that work with other devices?
All of my stuff is playable on your average Android phone. This includes a
lot of stuff that predates Android entirely and is encoded with some
fairly agressive options.

Right now I am using a Moto X which plays my my ogg audio just fine.
The music sits on my server and I just grab any song I want via SFTP.
No more worries about how many devices I am using or activation or
anything. Honestly, it feels great.
The video I deal with two ways. I have a Kindle Fire HD because I
tend to buy from Amazon anyway. If I want to watch a TV series for
example,

It's one of the things I really hate about this industry. They sell DRM
free music now. If we could ever pursued these content owners to sell DRM
free video that would be a step in the right direction. Ultimately if we
can get the industry to move to formats that non-patent encumbered we'd
have something to proud about.

I bought the Downton Abby 4 seasons on Blu-ray. I don't want to encode
those at all. I just watched them and then put the discs on a shelf. I
doubt I watch them again. I liked Ridly Scott's Prometheus a lot. So that
got encoded. And Music I listen to every day gets encoded. But I have no
intention of encoding everything.

These big businesses just want to own us. And I think Linux users are
perhaps the most particular about not being owned. I own quite a few
tablets and got sick of all of this DRM. When I started buying Linux
books to learn Linux I ran into O'Reilly and their DRM free ebooks. Every
tech book I have bought except for a CCNA book has been from them. I just
rsync the whole collection from my server to any one of my computers. I
love the freedom.

No, not really. In fact I used to use that and went back and tested Theora
+ ogg specifically so a base install of Linux without any restricted
software would work. I re-purchase my previously online purchased music
as CDs and recoded that in ogg. Just current stuff I listen to, plus I
had a fair quantity of existing CDs before I started buying music online.
I keep a pretty clean Linux install these days. The only thing I add is
flash at this point and hopefully WebM removes the need for Flash soon.
Much of YouTube is WebM now. Still not quite there but I would like to
have just a base install with little to nothing patent encumbered. I'm
very close.
You are smarter than a lot of these guys give you credit for.

Still a white belt in the Linux dojo. But being in the dojo is its own
reward regardless of belts.
