LinuxMultiMediaStudio by Sti2nd: LMMS video tutorials

Got an honorable mention on another blog, which is kind of neat. :)

But other than my tuts, I'm usually mediocre in regards to LMMS. If there's anyone to listen to who uses LMMS, look up this guy on soundcloud: 


Dunno where he came from... Um ok, Finland... Or so he claims. But dang, he's good at putting together the dramatic and epic orchestral film-score type music. And he claims to do it all with LMMS and some soundfonts or VSTis.

VLC Update worth it

If you're still using VLC 2.0.6, it's worth updating to 2.0.7. Primarily because the icecast detection appears to be fixed in this version. (Still not fast, but eventually it does update.) Dunno what they did in the 2.0.6 release, but I could never get the Icecast radio or most of the other indexed streaming stuff to work.

Only one thing seems to be missing from the streaming indexes, and that's some way to filter and also do stuff like list by bitrate. (Don't really want less than 128kbps, and would like anything over 160.)

The nicest thing you can wear if you're already beautiful

It's not any clothing, makeup, or article of jewelry. None of those really matter. It sounds cheesy and cliche, but damn - the nicest thing you can wear is a smile. Seeing that is what makes my day better than it would be otherwise.

Tesla, why not FR-S for Tesla Roadster Mk II?

Seems like a good small chassis. It's not Lotus, but it's slick looking, has good balance, not too bad weight, and nice production numbers. Also it might be the chance to come in below $50-K and have a decent sporty car. Not bad for a second shot at the roadster which isn't currently being produced. (AFAIK.)

The message from the stars?

What if we get a signal from the aliens, and the one thing they send back... Of all things... Is...


And they send it because they somehow figured out it's the one thing both our species have in common. I wonder what amount of time scientists would spend trying to decode the meaning of that?

A Manual for 116.27914701

If anyone cares to know, this manual should be close enough... (Has all the features and most parts are the same. Not the exact same model, but considering how much is identical, honestly it looks like a revision to me.)

Now if only someone could explain why the U.S. Sears website doesn't conveniently provide downloadable manuals for free like the Canadian one does. Greedy bastards.

How did I find this. Sometimes I'm a bit persistent in my online search skills.

Also, please comment if you somehow found this useful or found a more exact free .pdf of this manual on a site that's not malware infested.

Download Helper Extension went spammy

I don't know when they changed it, but Download helper extension has started doing malware style things like putting ads I don't want to see superimposed on my webpages and such. It's really noticable when you're using Adblock and NoScript, and there's shit you don't want up there on the screen.

So I disabled that extension.

Shame too, since it was useful and convenient for grabbing videos and the such. But until they quit doing that, I'll stop recommending this extension to anyone else.
