#if you have nvidia make sure you install the nvidia-cuda-toolkit so hardware acceleration can be used

M4A is a weird format, so you have to be creative here is a quick copy of what I did.
Basically you need to convert to .wav to make use of them and thenI converted the resulting .wav into an mp3 (nice small file size and basically universally playable):
sudo apt-get install mpg321 mp3gain faad normalize lame
faad "Voice 002 (copy).m4a"
faad "Voice 002 (copy).m4a"........
This is very handy if you're too busy and don't have time to download whatever files you need.
The -D specifies the domains allowed, this is because I specified -H which means foreign hosts are allowed, if you don't restrict them you'll end up going to the whole internet via ads and other links just like a search Engine would follow.
-l 0 specifies to go deep, to as many levels as possible/as exist.
-e robots=off is important because robots.txt often says you can't vie........
This was very annoying but has a simple fix, I had an echo and the voice quality was absolutely horrible (it sounded like tin cans under water) if that helps describe it. It was extremely distorted.
The simple Skype sound quality solution
Go to "Options" -> "Sound Devices"
Disable the "Allow Skype to automatically set my mixer levels"
After doing this the sound qua........
Have you ever found a website/page that has several or perhaps dozens, hundreds or thousands of files that you need downloaded but don't have the time to manually do it?
wget's recursive function called with -r does that, but also with some quirks to be warned about.
If you're doing it from a standard web based directory structure, you will notice there is still a link to .. and wget will follow that.
Eg. let's say you have files in http://serverip/documen........
I've never understood how to enable and disable services for different run levels in Debian based distros, it's just weird, annoying and doesn't make sense. I much prefer chkconfig from RHEL.
Just install the package called 'rcconf' and be done with it. rcconf makes things easy for you.
apt-get install rcconf

Why would you want to downgrade the superblock? Old mdadm verisons like mdadm 2.5.6 only use the 0.90 superblock/metadata and new versions use 1,1.0,1.1 and 1.2 superblocks by default.
There are some annoying caveats with this, first of all the new superblocks (later than 0.90) CANNOT be read by GRUB, so you won't even be able to install GRUB. Even worse, old versions of mdadm CANNOT automatically detect arrays even if they were created with a new version of mdadm with th........

I played around with xmit power (how much power in mW) to see if I could increase the range and signal strength. Idon't think this Linksys WRT54G's strength is the wireless, it seems to have poor signal quality and transfer rates all around.
Ithink part of the problem is also that there are several wireless networks around my house that could be interfering and the walls are thick here.
Anyaway, moving on now :) The default is 28mW and I increased it to........
