MoCp – Console Audio Player

Recently, there has been a little bit of a buzz out there surrounding the MoC (music on console) audio player. My ramblings here don’t really bring anything new to the table, but I thought that I’d share my ~/.moc/themes/config file with you and share with you how I launch the application.  This is by far…


Some Great Filters and Scripts for The Gimp

Recently, I came across some really nice Filters and Scripts for The Gimp.  If you are not familiar with The Gimp (The GNU Image Manipulation Program), it’s high quality open source photo/image editing and manipulation software. Check out these Gimp filters: http://www.gimphelp.org/script24.shtml http://gimpfx-foundry.sourceforge.net/ Here is a Cottonwood Grove image that I decided to use as…


Fort Collins Bluegrass and Old Time Music

Fort Collins sure has some great music flowing through its veins!  It surely is a mecca for Bluegrass music, and Old Time music is starting to become more prevalent too!  Check out a couple of local bands: The Horsetooth Mountain Rangers http://horsetoothmtnrangers.com http://www.reverbnation.com/horsetoothmountainrangers http://twitter.com/horsetoothmtnrg Cottonwood Grove, a Fort Collins Old Time Stringband http://cottonwoodgrove.wordpress.com/ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cottonwood-Grove/163213323517 http://www.reverbnation.com/cottonwoodgrove…


Ubuntu 9.10 – Wireless Woes….

I am disappointed that the previously supported Atheros wireless card (AR5212) is no longer being supported in Ubuntu’s 9.10 (Karmic Koala).  Ubuntu’s support for most hardware has generally been great over the years, and if something did not work correctly, it was likely that one could expect to see a fix to the problem at…

The Matrix Runs On Windows

This one has been floating around the Web for a bit so it’s likely that you may have already seen it.  I figured that I would archive a link to it here so that I could easily find it at some point in the future. http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1886349


Collaborative Text Editing With EtherPad

Recently, I have become aware of a really neat online collaboration tool called EtherPad. EtherPad is a tool that allows you and many other participants to collaborate in the creation/modification of a text document. It’s much like working in Notepad, Gedit, Kate, or any of the other basic text editors, but what makes it different…
