Pizza Party!

Posted by berto on February 26, 2007

Here’s a useful program!

Pizza Party lets you order pizzas from the command line. It has lots of benefits, including:

  • Batch usage (for ordering many pizzas).
  • Runs on most Unix-like operating systems.
  • Background operation (you can order a pizza from a cron script).
  • Lots of options to customize your pizza (--extra-cheese, --pepperoni, etc.). Check the manual page for details.
  • It’s free software!

The only drawback is that it currently only supports Domino’s pizza. We’ll have to port it to Telepizza or whatever.

Backported patches to sarge and dapper

Posted by berto on February 05, 2007

Johh has backported the latest patches he created for the etch/edgy versions of Last.fm to version 1.0.7, so Debian sarge and Ubuntu dapper users can benefit for them. Changes include the ability to select the web browser from the configuration dialog, a new ALSA plugin and some other minor fixes.

Last.fm 1.1.3.0 for Debian etch and Ubuntu edgy has been updated too, including a fix for environments with several sound cards.

Full changelog and source code here. Binaries here.

Last.fm for amd64

Posted by berto on February 02, 2007

Although there are only official binaries of Last.fm for x86 processors, faxm0dem has managed to have Last.fm compiled for amd64. And it seems to work, so I put it in my webpage.

Currently just for Debian etch, but I guess it should work in Ubuntu edgy too.
