Painobarfly

If you don't know what it is Pianobarfly is a terminal interface to Pandora. If you want to know more about it listen here: http://www.podnutz.com/lftrou123 Grab the git from here: https://github.com/ghuntley/pianobarfly When you grab the zip from the github you will need to make install the source. Before you do that make sure you have the dependencies installed first. On my current Ubuntu install I ran:
sudo apt-get install libao-dev libao-common libfaad-dev libmad0-dev libtagc0-dev libjson0-dev libgnutls-dev libaudid3tag-dev libid3tag0 libid3tag0-dev
I got most of the install commands from a site but I added the id3tag libs to it. You may need to add or remove things depending on your distro. The site reference is here: http://erikimh.com/pandora-on-linux-pianobar-and-pianobarfly/ After you make install just run ./pianobarfly from the directory you have it installed in. It is handy to have terminator installed and you can run pianobarfly with your terminal split into vertical views.

Terminal Cheat Sheet Background

I like to give credit where credit is due. I found the terminal cheat sheet background while do the usual google image search. I have used a similar one as my laptop wallpaper for a while but this one has many more commands. Go grab it for yourself if you would like. http://www.diegor.it/2012/09/15/howto-linux-terminal-cheat-sheet/

INXI Hardware Info Script

If you didn't notice the header for this site is the output of "inxi -Fz" from the terminal on my Laptop. I have been using inxi for a while now to get hardware info on my computers. Some distros don't have it preinstalled but it is real easy to install it. Basically what INXI does is to give the output of commands like lshw or parts of lspci and dmidecode. Granted you can get insanely detailed info using something like dmidecode but using inxi you can get it in a nice human readable format. Depending on what options you use with inxi you can easily narrow your results down for what you need. You can find the everything you need at the: http://code.google.com/p/inxi/ I made a forum posting with a screenshot at the Podnutz forums: http://www.podnutz.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=9759
