On Saturday, 18th December 2010, Uwe, this blogs sole author, died from cancer at the young age of 23.
He was one great guy. He was there, when someone needed help, he was loved by the people around him and most of all, he inspired me. He had a way of believing in the future, he had a way of thinking no other person had.
He didn’t care what happened or why something happened, he always pointed out the good things, even though many other people thought, there were no good things.
He will be greatly missed.
I’ve been asked quite a few times now, how I could handle all those terminals – four terminals per workspace, at least three workspaces.
That makes twelve terminals opened at the same time (scripting, tweaking, etc… Sysadmins know that there can be a lot to do, even if you think, everything’s done).
By the way that’s nothing compared to when I’m running in, and I’m quoting my wife on this one, “freak mode” (eight to ten workspaces, six terminals each), but it’s just about enough for daily use.
I’m syncing my portage tree every saturday morning at 04:19 AM and after every sync, there are a ton of packages in need of an upgrade.
While these packages itself compile fine, there could be a problem with already installed packages and the new versions.

The method described in my previous post is still working, but there are several issues regarding ffmpeg-mt and mplayer.
1. That mplayer includes a libass version old enough to have been written at the same time the pharaos were born
2. That git version for ffmpeg-mt isn’t compiling properly and it needs a git reset to an older version.
4. I wanted to write a new post :p
