Improved version of speedup script.
Fancy coloring, progress in percents, command line options, default speedup rate is taken from a file "SPEEDUP", handling Ctrl-C.
Script for moving processed podcasts back to player:
Here is version of my speedup script for linux:
Works only if you use mplayer backend.
Selectel resumed cloud server service selectel, so I decided to create new server in new server pool and also move from lighttpd to nginx.
Several days ago I looked into details of how my selectel server spended money and saw that it spends about 20 roubles per day (about $0.8) and has 100% CPU load for about 2 last days. I connected to it and saw that some 'sh' proccess is hang. I just killed it.
So as to react in time to such cases I decided to set up an SMS notification.
As my server is gone down suddenly and I don't have a chance to find out what is with it, I decided to move my blog to cloud platform.
I chose Selectel as hosting provider. Prices start from 50 roubles (about $1.85), this is only for keeping virtual machine for month, without running it. For my blog traffic (almost 0 :) ) overall price will be about 70 roubles (about $2.60) per month, it's very cheap I think.
UPD: After month usage, actual price is about 44 roubles (about $1.57).
I decided to improve my English skills, so I will write posts in English and in Russian (in English first).
Also, I wrote an improvement to blohg engine to ease multi-language blogging. In face of Flask 0.7, I will try to rewrite multi-language support using Blueprint.
After post about QR-codes, version without using Google Chart API.
In my free time I like to listen to podcasts and watch TV shows. But I think most of them I can watch/listen accelerated.
