LifeType news

Posted by reto on 30 April, 2006 22:15

Long time no post here, but the LifeType team is working hard to get Version 1.1 out in a few month. We would be happy, if we got a lot of feedback of beta testers to release a fast, feature rich and very stable LifeType 1.1.
You can get beta releases built directly from the trunk (snapshots) or check out the svn repository straight away.
And if you have websites running LifeType 1.0.3 or less, an upgrade to LifeType 1.0.4 is highly recommended. Please read the official announcement for further information.

Use wget!

Note to $_SELF: Use wget instead of php.cli the next time you try to periodically call a script running on your webserver in a shared hosting environment, where you don't have a clue how those servers are *configured*.
This is all it takes:
wget -q -O /dev/null
And it just works :)

Easy Audio Stream Recording with Streamripper

Posted by reto on 02 April, 2006 15:24

Streamripper is one of the most popular audio stream recording tools (i.e. stream rippers) available. If you know streamripper already, you may know it as a Winamp plugin, but streamripper is available as standalone binary, too! And the best: it's open source and available for Linux, Windows and OSX (BTW: If you are on OSX you may try StreamripperX, which features a nice GUI). The following examples are tested on a Windows box but surely work as well on the other plattforms. I started recording my favourite radio station in the evening and listen to it while I'm in the car driving to work the next day. This is what i tell streamripper to do:
streamripper.exe -d E:/tmp/streams -r 9009 -M 67 -o never -T
Streamripper expects an url to the stream in the first place, followed by some parameters (there is a nice readme, explaining full potential of streamripper, I will only explain the ones I need): (More)
