Klaatu talks about Slackware 14, Slackware Port, and Plan 9 and 9front. He also lies in the intro, promising to talk about flexbackup and then utterly forgetting to do so later on, so please do not get your hopes up.

Listener feedback-a-plenty, including the tree command, some new bash tips and functions, turn your emacs into a typewriter, get a git-sensitive bash prompt, a new grep trick, commentary on Calligra, a bit about the date command. Also, a beautiful sparkly new game on Linux called Nikki and the Robots! Also, the show has an atom feed now, having received a lot of formatting help and bug testing assistance from listener Thomas Loo.

The revised grep tip, thanks to a few listeners for submitting this:

$ grep -C2 foo penguins.txt

Cor's emacs typewriter trick:

:: Play typing sound
(defun play-typewriter-sound ()
  (start-process-shell-command "typewriter" nil "mplayer ~/9744__horn__typewriter.wav")
  )
(add-hook 'post-self-insert-hook 'play-typewriter-sound)

:: Play bell when cursor is at column 80
(defun play-typewriter-end ()
  (if (eq (current-column) 80)
    (start-process-shell-command "typewriter" nil "mplayer ~/eol-bell.wav")
    )
  )
(add-hook 'post-command-hook 'play-typewriter-end)

:: Return sound
(defun play-typewriter-return ()
  (if (eq this-command 'newline)
    (start-process-shell-command "typewriter" nil "mplayer ~/carriage-return.wav")
    )
  )
(add-hook 'post-command-hook 'play-typewriter-return)

And a bunch of cool bash functions from Sergio, with some corrections to my transcription thanks to Dave Morriss:

function tree() {
  find "${1:-.}" -type d -print | sed -e 's:[ ]*/:|____:g;s:____|: |:g'
}

function sshpull() {
  if [ $# != 3 ]; then
    echo "Usage: sshpull user@host remotefile localfile"
    return 1
fi
ssh "$1" cat "$2" > "$3"
}

function sshpush() {
  if [ $# != 3 ]; then
    echo "Usage: sshpush user@host localfile remotefile"
    return 1
fi
cat "$2" | ssh "$1" cat ">" "$3"
}

function psgrep() {
  if [ -z "$1" ]; then
    echo "Usage: psgrep text"
  return 1
fi

search="$( echo "$@" | sed -r "s/([a-z0-9])/[\1]/i" )"
ps aux | egrep -i "SER|$search" | egrep -v "$@1"
}

Also, Cobra2 has created a mirror of the Gnu World Order site!

MrWork in IRC dropped a subtle hint that listing the grep tip in the shownotes might be useful. So to get two lines Above and two lines Below the grep result:

$ grep -A2 -B2 foo penguins.txt

Bashrc functions from listeners, using fdupes to find duplicate files, and some philosophical rambling about negative feedback and free software.

Here is Remy's lstree bashrc code. Copy and paste into your .bashrc and then run source ~/.bashrc and give it a go!

And here is Remy's extract cheat:

       *.tar.gz)  tar xvzf $1  ;;
