  • Recovering videos from DV tapes with Canon ZR80

    I am recovering some tapes from back in the day that some of you may enjoy. Here is a log of the process so that maybe you can recover some of your own DV tapes. Seems to work well in modern Debian. To attach to the camcorder, I used a PCI-e card that has an […]

  • Using SonarQube 5.4, Maven 3.3.9, Jenkins 2.19.1 on systems with both Java 1.7 and 1.8

    Hello folks! My team spent hours and hours beating our head against a Sonar deployment problem on Ubuntu Trusty (14.04 LTS). I thought I might share our findings so that you won’t have to!

They removed the -L argument because too many people were complaining about lost data. It sounds like user error to me, and so […]

  • Trip Report: UW signing-party

    Dear Debian Users, I met last night with a friend from many years ago and a number of students of cryptography. I was disappointed to see the prevalence of black hat, anti-government hackers at the event. I was hoping that civilized humanity had come to agree that using cryptography for deception, harm to others and […]
