Yet Another Backup Script: mrbStudio

Yet Another Backup Script: mrbStudio

Some years ago I decided that I needed backups. Our systems are more fragile than we tend to think; hardware break downs, hard disks failures, laptop thefts, accidents, software malfunctions or user errors can strip us of our precious data. By data I mean both things we can’t afford to lose (like your work files or photographs) or things it would take a great amount of time to replace (like your OS installation along with a ton of custom settings). I tried to think of a backup policy that would work for me, an advanced user. I knew I wanted something that would be easy to access, like a copy of an original directory and maybe versions, so I can return my files to a...

Wallpaper: KDE – permanent type

This is the fourth and last wallpaper of the KDE wallpapers week. It is the less “clean” image in this series. I think that it doesn’t match up well with widgets but if you have a virtual desktop clean of plasmoids you will love it. It is so good it may even get you a girlfriend! :p for 4:3 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1600x1200 for 5:4 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1280x1024 for 16:10 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1280x800 KDE - permanent type - 1680x1050 KDE - permanent type - 1920x1200 for 16:9 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1920x1080 KDE – permanent type...

Wallpaper: powered by KDE

Yesterday I decided to play a bit with textures and the result was a KDE wallpaper! I love it and I hope you will like it too! I will post a plain version without the colored straws soon. For the photography savvy this photo was captured with my Canon EOS 500D and the EF 50mm f/1.8 (no mkII version here). You can download it below at various resolutions. Each ratio comes from a different crop area of the original, so download the appropriate ratio for your monitor  since you can’t get for example the 16:10 image if you crop the large 4:3 image. If you like it , you can give it a vote over kde-look. ...

Wallpaper: Water Drops

Some days ago I tried to do some water drop shots because they are easy to do, fun and the results, although not original, are most of the time satisfying. This is one of the better shots and since I was asked for it this is a wallpaper version. It is fairly large, 1920×1200 pixels, so you can scale it down and/or crop it to fit to your monitor (this happens automatically from your OS, no need for special graphics software). Click to view, right click -> open link to see it at full size, right click -> save link as to save it on your computer. ...

Wallpaper: Poser

Some days ago I decided to play a bit with some HDR techniques. With the help of the open source Qtpfsgui I created my first pseudo HDR from a photo of mine. It isn’t something spectacular but I thought I should share it anyway. It is a Mantis insect with enough free space around it in order to arrange your widgets. The resolution of the image is 1680×1050. The original photo was shot with  my beloved Canon 500D and the EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS but I will write about it another time. To save it to your hard disk right click on it and choose save link as. ...

musearch: per ebuild USE flag descriptions on your terminal

musearch: per ebuild USE flag descriptions on your terminal

There is some material I want to upload to the site eventually. I will begin with musearch, a bash script useful to Gentoo Linux users. musearch lets you search for an ebuild and then displays it’s USE flags along with their description. It can be considered as a CLI interface to Mike Valstar’s site gentoo-portage.com. musearch uses portage (emerge), esearch or eix to search for an ebuild by name or by name and description. Then, provided the results aren’t too many (we don’t want to cause unnecessary traffic to gentoo-portage.com), connects to Mike Valstar’s website and downloads the USE flag descriptions for each result, formats them in a...
