TIL: Just how cool ffmpeg is.

TIL: That I’ve spent untold hours trimming videos and re-rendering them when ffmpeg from the command line trims the file and generates a new copy in minutes.

Git just saved me!

Note to self: just because you see some parameters in a YouTube video doesn’t mean you should use them.

I just used git checkout to revert a file back to a previous commit. It was the first time I did it and it worked like a charm.

git just rocks 💪

Note to self: be careful what you uninstall.

It’s better to keep a piece of software than to uninstall it and have to come back and recompile later. Reconciling a browser takes forever.

After Christmas party Arch Linux install

I’m watching a guy do an Arch Linux install after the Christmas party this is hysterical stuff.

I’m having a hard time justifying doing an arch install anytime.

Okay I’ve been watching some videos on arculinux and I’ve revised my opinions on Arch.

I think I’m going to have to take it for a spin. Not sure which edition I’m going to build though.

TWIL: (this week I learned)

Wow, I’ve learned so many things this week.

  • How to create a git repository using files from multiple subdirectories. (Usually, they have to be in the same one.)
  • How how to create branches in repositories in order to test my changes so I won’t clobber my files. (I used to just break shit and then have to rebuild it.)
  • How to rollback a branch when I’ve done something stupid. (Which anybody who knows me knows I do a lot.)
  • How to merge my branches with my master repo on the off-chance that I actually did it right.

Git is the shit
