When I first installed Fedora 15 to try GNOME3 was fascinated by it’s look and differences from the older versions, I still like it but after a couple weeks using it started to work very slow and crashed many times, now finally decided to move to Xfce but not removing GNOME 3 because maybe one day I will come back but not until I upgrade my computer. Applications start very fast, don’t crash, it’s simpler and reminds me the ClearLooks of Gnome 2.6 from F13 and F14.
FFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. It includes libavcodec – the leading audio/video codec library. It’s a free and open source software release under GPL.
I love it, I mostly use it to convert videos.
Here’s a simple how-to convert a .wmv to .avi on Fedora:
[gent@fedora ~]$ su -c "yum install -y ffmpeg"
[gent@fedora ~]$ cd Videos/
[gent@fedora Videos]$ ffmpeg -i gent_on_bike.wmv gent_on_bike.avi
Rackspace was nice to give us 2 cloud servers with Debian 5.0 GNU/Linux distribution which we’re very thankful. Plan is to to move our FLOSSK web-site to Drupal fully in near future from the current proprietary CMS. We will also use the space to host other platforms for ours needs like Open Atrium, for project managing etc. We also thank Dave Hall, which made the contact with Rackspace guys to make it possible.
I found this really cool and funny phrase from soever chat from the internets, probably facebook!

< wow, you must be like super duper awesome!
> of course I am. but you could call me a geek too
< oh k, bye
Lullabot is a group of Drupal experts, they write books,make video,podcasts, consulting and a lot more. Thanks to our friend Dave Hall who got us in touch with them. Then they were nice to donate us a bunch of tutorials they offer to us for free. We’ve downloaded and we’re planning to play to our group nowadays. Our website in near future will move to Drupal completely.
