Making Life Easier With Scripts For Nautilus

In my previous post, I talked about how you can use Nautilus and the nautilus-image-converter as tools for resizing and rotating your images.  Although PCManFM is my preferred file manager, and I often use Thunar if I am bulk renaming files, I keep coming back to Nautilus for file management, network file browsing, image resizing/rotation,…

Strings In The Mountains

This year, the Strings In The Mountains series brought The Infamous Stringdusters and Crooked Still to Steamboat Springs. Although both bands cleaned house, Crooked Still also mopped up the stage and cleaned the cob webs out of the stage lights. Amazing.
