  • Uhmmm… yeah, okay, well Darren *really* ought to lay off the Red Bull; not only is it VERY bad for you, but it makes him even more irritating than usual. Great show, but he needs to act his age, seriously.

  • Great show

    09 F9 (Blu-ray key) Easter Egg was nice. Next one needs to be “Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine!”

    Here is a script (which utilizes xwininfo to grab the windowsize and x and y coordinates) and starts an ffmpeg record once a window is clicked (with audio – pulseaudio). I’m still messing with bitrates and such to see what works best, but this should get people started.

    width=`echo $winInfo |awk -F”Width: ” {‘print $2’} |awk {‘print $1’}`
    height=`echo $winInfo |awk -F”Height: ” {‘print $2’} |awk {‘print $1’}`
    x=`echo $winInfo |awk -F”Absolute upper-left X: ” {‘print $2’} |awk {‘print $1’}`
    y=`echo $winInfo |awk -F”Absolute upper-left Y: ” {‘print $2’} |awk {‘print $1’}`
    ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -f x11grab -b 16000 -s ${width}x${height} -r 24 -i :0+${x},${y} -acodec libmp3lame out.avi

    Give him a break guys, he’s just doing his take on adding a bit of life and enthusiasm to the show. Come on, tech talk is good stuff to watch and listen to but it can easily become drawn out and bland no matter the topic at hand.

    Props for being different Darren, and yourself (if that’s your personality IRL).

    Cheers from Toronto, Ontario.
