comment How to open nokia photo images with .nrw extension?
Just tried it, the site will seemingly do a conversion of NOKIARAW files, but the output is meaningless noise, unfortunately..

comment Open Office Calc time to decimal
... having selected the result cell, click on the formula entry again; and now add the *24 to, say, (D7-C7) - and now you should (hopefully) get the result with decimals; after this, you could re-format the number with the proper amount of decimals, I guess. Hope this helps - cheers! (EDIT: may have forgotten to say, that at first, I didn't enter the whole formula (with *24), just the difference (D7-C7)).

comment Open Office Calc time to decimal
You could have also edited the original question post, and added what you typed here there, and then written a comment to the answerer.. Anyway - what I did was to format the time cells as [HH]:MM in Format cells/Format code (as per Documentation/How Tos/Calc: Date & Time functions - Apache OpenOffice Wiki); then after you enter the formula (and get the 2), right-click and "Clear Direct Formatting" - this should give you a floating point number (0.1041666667); now ...

Not exactly for Mac - but you may want to check my post in ubuntu - Sending and receiving fax via GSM Network in Linux - Super User, which documents some stuff I've found about sending fax via bluetooth phone; maybe it helps.

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for that @DarthAndroid - of course I have, among the first things :) Doesn't work - the linked Slitaz post confirms that loading 'nvidia' driver for X11 was what solved the issue; but on my system, radeon.ko.gz is loaded, and X11 doesn't accept it in its setup; which is why I'm looking at this workaround (which actually works - for those pipes that don't segfault with avi as in OP edit)... Basically, I just want to use vlc as audio player and video demuxer/decoder - and ffplay as basically just a "projection screen" :) Cheers!

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for the comment @Breakthrough - tried it now, but doesn't work, and probably it shouldn't (note that --rawvid-chroma is option for "Raw video demuxer" == "player"; however here VLC plays "OGV", not "raw video") .. that is why the chroma should have been fixed with vcodec=IYUV in the very first attempt, but for some reason isn't. Cheers!

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for the comment, @slhck - the video is linked in the post (it's from Wikimedia Commons). Actually, both vlc and ffplay can play this file fine - the question is about what format to choose, so one pipes decoded output from vlc into ffplay... Cheers!

In my man ffplay, I cannot see ffplay supporting the -i switch - is it maybe ffmpeg only?

Many thanks for this - I have a PC with a broken harddrive, which prevents most bootable USB from booting during this stage; now, with this, DSL boots for me! :) Cheers!

comment How can I provide a SSH password to SVN on the command line?
@briealeida - I just wish it worked: according to the test in my post below, it seems it does not work, as a password prompt appears anyways; the same post contains a solution with sshpass (which does work for me).
