Came across nv-tv-out utility which helps tuning nvidia drivers. It is particularly useful for getting rid off black borders around the image on TV. What I need now is to figure out how to get SVIDEO output from my video card into RGB input of TV. VGA? :)
ripMIME is a handy piece of software that helps with attachment processing. I have configured ripMIME and procmail to save all attachments coming to my inbox into a special directory.
Lots of small things today: monthly backups scheduled, inserted few fresh tapes into the cycle, played with Mutt 1.4 (found it much faster with opening/closing/sorting of mailboxes then 1.2), upgraded GeForce2 to the one with 64 MBytes of memory, revisited Subversion website (modern alternative to CVS), some other small fixes and updates.
Not much happenning. For the last couple of days I was playing with NVidia driver options for TwinView and TV-OUT. Nothing particularly interesting though. Mozilla 1.0 occupied lots of my time aswell. Mainly I was focused on the Calendar project for Mozilla. While it is still to young for production use, the idea of calendar server backend gives lots of hope for the MS Exchange environments.
I’ve played several really good q3 games (osp tdm). Educational side was enriched by reading RPM HOWTO and Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide. I’ve spent the whole weekend playing with DVD ripping. I found dvd::rip to be the easiest to install and most full-featured, including cluster support, resizing, cropping, encoding from the hard disk, etc, from all that I’ve tried (DivXripper and Drip).
