Tweaking WordPress: Theme Unnamed Lite by Xu Yiyang

Funny theme name: “Unnamed Lite“, isn’t it.

After my heavily customized theme Blocks have been pulled to pieces after my final optimization attempt, I’ve been looking for a theme, which does offer the features I like to have, without screwing around to much.

Theme Unnamed Lite seems to be my candidate so far. These are the following advantages I’ve found out so far: Continue reading

[solved] uTorrent 1.8.3 doesn’t install on Linux via Wine

ĀµTorrent is told to run on Linux through Wine. Well – version 1.8.3 does not, at least not for me. I’m using Jaunty Jackalope (9.04, x86_64), and the installation process just stops after the last button press.

But all of them claim, this version (3.0.1.6) is meant to be for Windows Mobile 2003 also. Continue reading

Sed – Renaming with Linux [Part 2]

Some time ago I wrote an article about renaming multiple filenames [1]. Now it happened I needed to rename several subtitles for Star Trek Enterprise because, I’m using a self-made mplayer-wrapper script to load subtitles automatically. Therefor the subtitle filename, usually a Sub Rip Text (.srt) file from tvsubtitles have to be in a form like S01E01 or 1x24.

The two according lines in my mplayer-vdpau wrapper script, which I use in My Media System (MMS) looks like this: Continue reading
