Really easy, quick to make and can be prepared ahead of time.

So recently while I have been commuting I have been thinking more about my road position and have came to the conclusion that riding down the left hand side of a lane is a really bad idea, to the extent that I am not actually sure that I think marked bike lanes on roads are a good idea either.
A quick way to remove pass-phrases from RSA keys.
So as part of my move to Manchester I now ride a bike most days either as part of my commute or just to get into town.
Working with python at the moment for the HELOpg Slime Project and needs to remove the duplicates from a list in python and found this great little method.
So this is something I always forget how to do, so I am going to post it here so I don’t lose it and perhaps it will be off use to others.
Adam Jansch and I are commenting on HackManchester for 24 hours, the stream is below.
So today marked the day I completed my move out of Huddersfield; I am now a resident of Manchester.
So this morning at OggCamp 2012 I decided to propose a talk, which after a brief time in limbo was excepted. Was nice to present in an informal setting so talked through my WIFI Broken thought exercise my notes as always will be online at http://show.scotthewitt.co.uk.
After enjoying robotic boats first thing, Saturdays second session was vector maths by John Sharp followed by a look at the German Enigma machine (presented by Nahuel Marisi) and the human user introduced vulnerabilities. Made me realise how little I know about the competitive, equivalent Allies encryption technologies.
Have arrived in Liverpool fine, baulked at the cost of sandwich at Manchester Station so instead enjoyed KFC after checking into the hotel. Am staying in the Adelphi hotel in the middle of Liverpool which is a bit grim – full of stag dos, grannies and for two nights only geeks. It reminds me of the Pennsylvania hotel I stayed in, while visiting New York for ICMC 2010.
While I was in London last week I bought some new, old old glass. A Nikkor 24mm 2.8 AFD lens. It is actually the second time I have owned this glass having previously traded it for a Nikkor 17-55 2.8 AFS so why the step back.
I have had a problem with using i3 as a window manager getting screen locking and suspend to work but this is how I got it fixed.
This comming weekend I am attending Ogg Camp 2012 in Liverpool, I am voluntering as part of the crew so I suspect it will be a busy weekend. The unconference, hosted by Linux Outlaws and the UK Ubuntu podcast is all about open culture and hardware hacking so should be really intrested. I hope to blog my way through the event here, but of course I might be to busy so shall see.
So its August and that means its almost September which means its CreativePact time.
So freedom is important but so is working with MP3 files. The default Audacity package on Fedora does not have MP3 support which is understandable but a pest.
Today I came across a Youtube parody video, Amazon Yesterdays Shipping.
So having decided to move away from Arch Linux it was time to choose another distribution.
So since getting my Samsung Nc110 netbook I have been running Arch Linux on it.
So with a bit of luck this blog post should appear inside Facebook as well as on my personal blog at http://scotthewitt.co.uk .
After having switched to Emacs and eventually allowing OrgMode to take over my organisation it only made sense to explore what other things I could do with Emacs.
Today while recording a WWDC Special episode for TheAudioPodcast I forgot to turn on my recorder so I had to extract the audio from the youtube video. ffmpeg makes it really easy,
So it will come as no surprise to most readers that I am a big Linux fan, in fact the only thing that stops my using it exclusively is a driver issue.
So as I have been increasing movingly my life into Git version control it made sense to explore methods of publishing with Git.
So SLEO is finished time to head home….
So today I presented my paper
So today I got to hear the Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana play Human Shredders which was pretty ace. The played it real well.
So having arrived yesterday evening today was my first full day at LSU, started with an enjoyable cup of coffee at Highland Coffees.
So have had a full day to explore New Orleans, had an enjoyable trip to a farmers market after walking along Camp St. via Coliseum Square Park. Enjoyed a cup of cold coffee after getting the research poster printed.
So a day late but my day of air travel went fine.
I finally made time to sit down and watch the Kony 2012 film.
So a little milestone reached the AudioPodcast pushed over a 1000 page views in day thanks to the dual effect of the live MSP Symposium coverage from the Electric Spring and an interview with Frank Bry of therecordist.com .
So things that are happening which I cant really talk about in detail but are the reasons I am not blogging lots.
So I spent last weekend at the Max 4_u convention with the rest of TheAudioPodcast team.
So if you visited the site yesterday you would not have seen much as I was taking part in the anti-SOPA protest by blacking out this site. While I hope it did not upset anyone I am aware that some offense was caused. I do however honestly believe that the passing of SOPA and similar legislation is a dangerous step, which compromise the ability of people to communicate and gain understanding.
