I was recently invited to a picasa photo-album, the image store service from google. When I clicked on the link to see details about the user, I received a very strange error message:

The page at says:
Something unusual has happened. hopefully, it is so unusual that you will never see this dialog again.

yubnub commands for go players

30. Januar 2009 Keine Kommentare

I recently restarted to play go, also on some turn-based go servers.

Usually I go to the servers website and check my games. I play on these servers:

Therefore I created two yubnub commands to display my game stats directly

dgos displays status on the dragongoserver
ogs displays game status on the online-go server

A command that was already created was sensei which does a search on the go wiki

A quick search showed that I should upgrade the underlying berkley-db. I found a guide
to do this:

Convert mp3 to m4b -> Audiobooks

10. August 2008 4 Kommentare

There are a lot of tools available to convert mp3 files into m4b files, the
format for audiobooks on the iPods/iPhones.

However, I stille like to do it on the cmd-line. Its clean and fast. You just need to
have mpg123 and faac installed:

mpg123 -s input.mp3 | faac -b 80 -P -X -w -o output.m4b -
If you want to convert a whole directory of mp3 files, as it is the common desire, here
is the onliner:
for i in $(ls *mp3);  do mpg123 -s $i | faac -b 80 -P -X -w -o ${i%mp3}m4b -; done

You can find this cmd-lines also in my wiki.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
