Are you trying to finally get rid of your old laptop, but don’t know if it contains still some data that might be relevant some day? If it still runs, just boot it up with a recent Knoppix boot medium and backup its data.
The default settings of mkisofs can’t handle deeply nested paths well, so I suggest the following parameters:
The open source tool Subler offers a perfect feature to convert VobSub captions to TX3G format that is more compatible to iTunes and other clients (like Plex).
But the stock version of Subler only supports English text recognition. In order to recognize German umlauts and other latin special characters like this, you need to download extra data files for the OCR library ‘tesseract’.
Subler’s documentation mentions that but the link is outdated. So here’s the correct link to the data files for the (old) tesseract lib that’s included in Subler:
Since Google Code went down, I only automatically transferred my old projects there to Github. Today I pushed my first new project directly to Github: https://github.com/krizleebear/Melodies2Go
I’ll not go into detail about this project – it’s still work in progress.
But as a reminder for me: When I need to push a new Github project, here’s the deal:
It’s been 3 years of development and with the premiere on CES 2014 we’re allowed to show it to the public:
Our brand new 2014 Audi MMI with completely new look&feel and integrated onboard search engine “Audi MMI Search”!
quote from Audi’s press release:
“A special highlight of the new Audi MMI is MMI search. This is a practical function that assists the driver in searching for a term, simplifying the search. MMI search is available in every main menu. The results list is shown right away while the user is inputting – generally just a few characters suffice to come up with the term. In the Radio and Media menus, a character string leads directly to the desired radio station, track, album or performer.
MMI search is especially helpful in navigation. When inputting a navigation destination, MMI search permits free text input without having to use a rigid formula. In most cases, just a few characters are sufficient to find any destination in Europe. It is no longer necessary to input the country. In the results display, the MMI takes the current location of the car into consideration, so that hits for the immediate vicinity are displayed first. When searching for a street near the car’s position, it is generally only necessary to input the first few characters of the street name. When looking for a restaurant in any European city, all the user needs to do is input the first characters of the restaurant name and the first characters of the city name separated by a blank character; then the MMI lists relevant hits with addresses.”
Furthermore we’ve introduced our all-integrated cluster instrument – ready for the launch of the new 2014 TT:
It’s pretty easy to use. One little detail to be mentioned though:
You can add chapter marks by pasting them in the following format:
