Good old text adventures.

Decided I wanted to play good old Zork. Went looking for where to get the games. Whoopie, they are free now! Used to be you would have a install a program for each version of the story. They now have what is called a zmachine, so that all you have to do is load in the stories for each of the games as you want to play them.    So I downloaded several games including hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy.  Mmm goodness!

Having been a system administrator for many years installing client/server applications, “What else can I do?”, came to mind. Then I thought about it, Do I need to download a zmachine for all the systems. Is there a better way especially for touchpads? And there is. Found Zplet for use on a web server. Installed it, some stories, and a little html to put it all together. Even more goodness.

Commanding again.

Odds and ends:

Format a usb stick:
$ sudo umount /dev/sdb1
$ sudo mkdosfs -F 32 -I /dev/sdb1

Quick way to stop a misbehaving program.
$ pkill firefox

Get a file from youtube:
youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UenUUP2GM4g&list=UUa88-y7odLz96HGE4bI41Lg

Extract a file directly to a web directory from another host.
$ sudo tar username@host::/home/username/diroffile/filename.tar
From HPR:

Convert a video to a more common  format.
ffmpeg -i glue.flv glue.avi

Strip the audio of a video.
ffmpeg -i glue.flv glue.mp3

Possible pretty output file, but takes up extra space.
ffmpeg -i glue.flv -target ntsc-dvd output.mpg

We will be doing some interfacing with a bike.


Get ready for some freebasic goodness.
