comment How to create a thumbnail from the middle of a video with FFmpeg
An alternate way to specify thumbnail dimensions - this example crops it to a 4:3 aspect ratio: ffmpeg -y -i input.mp4 -vf "crop=(ih*4/3):ih" -f mjpeg -vframes 1 -ss 534 thumbnail.jpg

comment Linux utility for finding the largest files/directories

comment Why is Mac OS X Lion Apache DocumentRoot /usr/htdocs?

comment Can I end all httpd processes? (OSX, 10.7.4, Lion)
This solved it for me on 10.7.5; even though Web Sharing exists and is unchecked in System Preferences, httpd was surviving/respawning through killall until using this launchctl command (but this particular system might have other issues)

Instead of crontab, a quick-and-dirty one-liner in a minimized console did the trick for me: while [ 1 ]; do scrot -z -d 900; done.

comment Using Google Talk with a non-apps, non-gmail Google account
I double-checked the password but Pidgin still reports "Not Authorized" when using these settings. I'm starting to think a throwaway gmail account is the only solution here.
