Hacks

Here are some small hacks I've made over the years (most of these are archaic), for a bit newer my dot.files repo might be more useful.

ALL hacks are licenced under the GNU GPL v3.

erc-xmmcrtl

This lite nifty one (well it aint that great) is my first lisp hack ever :) It adds both the possibility to insert into the current buffer what we are playing in XMMS aswell as an erc command to send what we are playing.

findpid.sh

A bash script that either takes argument one ($1) or an input as a process name to find all pids for. Well it ai'nt that wonder full but some one might like it. i wrote it to test out an idea, but I would really recommend pgrep now days.

simpel-lis.py

A naive way to control the L.I.S LCD, a serial driven LCD that wasn't supported by either lcdproc or lcd4linux.
I was quite happy that I got it working at all
download

build-kernel.sh (v0.7)

A script I used on some systems to build the Linux kernel (2.4-2.6?), automagic detection of kernel version and arch.
the grub / lilo part it wont touch that is left for you to fix. The script contains more information.
