Dude.

 


Have you ever gone through the whole Golden Ears song and dance?

Really interesting!
Never made it through all the gold level stuff. The last three or so challenges are too much for my puny ears.

Perhaps it's just a coincidence and the hard drive got messed up when dealing with different file systems and partitions. Haven't really spent great effort towards fixing it either. Maybe I should, but then again I can't really be bothered. It's an older model, and I've got a better laptop anyway.

Is it one of those white ones? you should sell it when it becomes vintage :D

It's my server which was running linux (ubuntu) the entire time. Only difference is that I just installed a GUI for it.

and I've been too busy teaching my computer to tag music for me....... Here's what I learned:

NEVER EVER use shell scripting to deal with files or folders that contains any of these characters: \ /
Yeaaaaaaaah......a lot of my classical music have those tags. That's why I've been going through things manually, which takes forever, but at least you get what you want.

It's hard to look up composers for songs sometimes, and I'm trying to include the label information from CDs, if available.

I'm still having a hard time how to name Asian songs. Do I put the English/romanised names, English/Asian text, English/Asian text/romanised; English/Romanised doesn't seem proper for Cantonese songs though since I don't know the right syntax and there are very few Chinese character-romanised Cantonese translators. >.>

Even just tagging English songs bugs me sometimes. Often a CD will have the track names IN ALL CAPS; do I do the same? Do I type them like normal titles? Bah, I hate making such seemingly trivial decisions...

Nah, I can hear that myself. Only to a certain extend though.
320kbs MP3 vs. 564kbs FLAC? Nope, does sound exactly the same to me.
256kbs MP3 vs. 978kbs FLAC? Jup, the FLAC does sound better.
I even have some rips where I believe to hear a difference between the 320kbs and FLAC version. But only a few.
FLAC vs. WAV....does sound exactly the same to me.
I still think some people really go above and beyond with the whole file format thing....people who claim to hear like a 10kbs difference. BS, if you ask me.

bit rates of FLAC files actually aren't all the significant though?

I mean... it's lossless, just like putting a wav into a zip.

Yeah, one of those white plastic 13" ones. It's a 2008 model.

Foobar does have a lot of tagging automation functionality.

Foobar 4 life yo!

I rip all my CDs with EAC which tends to find the metadata for even the most obscure Black Metal bands. Great stuff.

It's generally a lot of stuff you don't need to know if you just want to be an everyday Linux user. If you're looking to get a job that involves a lot of work with linux, pay attention to it. I don't believe they cover many distro-specific stuff or package manager specific stuff (ex. a lot of distros use apt, the advanced packaging tool, but some distributions, notably Arch and Arch-based ones, use pacman instead) so it's mostly commands built into the kernel that are universal. As far as general use goes, you really only need to know update commands, install commands, uninstall commands, and maybe some other stuff. Other than that it's just configuring the config files of programs or changing up things via a GUI.

You do not understand the sadness that happens in me when my computer can't even run a Ubuntu GNOME virtual machine (regular Ubuntu w/ Unity is a bit...slow).

I like her outfit! Can you link me to the original version of this wallpaper?
