fetchyahoo 2.14.0 deb package for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick

On Nov. 16th, fetchyahoo 2.14.0 was released, and I did not find any deb package available for it on the Launchpad PPA’s. And I used to package it before, so it took me not very long to update the package to the newest version.

Fetchyahoo is a script written in Perl which fetches your email from Yahoo! Mail and either saves it in your mbox or can also send it to an IMAP folder. It pulls email using the web interface which is very useful for those with Yahoo Mail who do not have POP3 or IMAP access, since POP3 access for Yahoo Mail seems to be a paid service.

The deb package for fetchyahoo 2.14.0 is available from my PPA. You can either add it to your sources.list:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:weboide

or you can directly download it from launchpad:
fetchyahoo_2.14.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb

[ubuntu] Smasher 1.1.1 deb package for Jaunty

Smasher is an easy to use and lightweight audio loop slicer for Linux and Windows. I decided I would give it a try and that I should package it for Ubuntu (see Download section below).

It might need a little time before you figure out how this thing works. First you need to understand the Patterns (upper-right part); Smasher divided the file you’ve given him into slices, and each slice gets a number and that’s the numbers you see on the left. From there, you can select in which order to play the slices.
Below the pattern area, there is the effects area, that’s where you can apply an effect to each slice (first column for first slice being played). Then it is very easy to understand the rest of how it works.

Important: Smasher doesn’t seem to support (or struggles with) files that are relatively big. I suggest you stick with mp3’s that are less than 1mb, or Wav files are less than 2 or 3mb. Otherwise you’ll see your Ram memory go up and your computer will start freezing.

Here are some of the features it offers (from official website):

  • slice loops in seconds
  • load MP3, WAV, FLAC and AIFF
  • save as WAV
  • resonant filters
  • effects
  • share presets online
  • sample packs
  • free and open source

[Ubuntu] suPHP 0.7.1 .deb package with Paranoid mode

With Apache2, I like to have my websites in different directories, and they cannot interfere with each other. I use Virtual Hosts and suPHP for this.

In Ubuntu repositories, only the 0.6.X version is available, so I packaged the 0.7.1 myself and with the paranoid mode.

Streamripper 1.64.4 deb packages for Intrepid

I wanted Streamripper 1.64.4 for Intrepid so I made the deb package myself!

Streamripper is (obviously) a program that rips audio (radio) streams into files. It supports mp3 and ogg as output files. There are different third-party front-ends that you can use for those who needs a GUI (graphical user interface) and there is also a winamp add-on of the same name with customizable skins.

You can use it as a relay server when you rip your favorite station:

streamripper -r http://mystation/

And then connect to either one (depending on your player):

http://localhost:8000/
http://localhost:8000/.ogg
http://localhost:8000/;stream.nsv
