    How to record Skype calls on Linux: use free Skype Call Recorder

    11th November 2010

    Just came across Skype Call Recorder – an awesome in its functionality+simplicity tool to record skype calls. Highly recommended!

    It worked immediately for me, and default settings are good enough not to bother tweaking. Well, I know that because I did tweak a few to get more nerdiness, but normal people don’t need that.

    SCR download page has packages for Ubuntu, Debian/i386, Xandros, RPM-based distributions, Gentoo – and as its free, you can of course just use the fsource, Luke!

    At the time of writing, a package for Debian/amd64 was not available, but it is really easy to build one.
    Here’s mine: skype-call-recorder-debian_0.8_amd64.deb

    ask.debian.net: stackoverflow for Debian with Shapado

    19th October 2010

    ask.debian.net is a StackOverflow-like Q&A website built with OSS Shapado.

    That’s my first encounter of Shapado, so it was interesting to read Shapado authors’ justification and a related question on meta.SO.

    Workplace or gamer’s HQ? ;)

    16th October 2010

    Find out more about the depicted office. That would be a nice setup for flight and/or space simulators, I guess.

    TinEye Firefox extension helped finding more nice workplaces.

    And Stefan in his office description provided some more links to multi-display workplaces – Mitch Haile’s and Kevin Connollie’s among others.

    16th October 2010
